Sierra Dawkins
Ferndale$13.50/hr  |  15 yrs experience
Hi! My name is Sierra; I'm 18, I have a car, I've got a good GPA, and a clean driving record. Some of my favorite things to do are hang out with my friends, read, draw, and cook. I used to be highly involved in my high school marching band, so music is also pretty important to me. I've been babysitting pretty regularly from the time I was 11, but it became less when I started working in Customer Service in 2018. I love working with kids and I would love to spend more time doing something I enjoy.

I babysat as a teenager. For a couple years, I was responsible for helping with my step-siblings. During the school year, I would make sure my step-sister got ready for school and I make sure she caught the bus. During the summer, I would take care of my step-sister and step-brother (who didn't live with us). When the weather was nice, I would always try to find activities to do outside with the kids. During my freshman year of high school, I frequently babysat for a family who had four kids. They were 2, 6, 7, and 9. I would spend the weekends watchng the kids during the day.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Ferndale, WA

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Ferndale Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Ferndale? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Ferndale?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in WA? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
