The summer after my Sophomore year, I was a nanny for a family who lives down my street. I was there to take care of them weekdays in the morning and afternoon. I took care of an infant boy and a toddler boy, ages one and four. I babysat for all four years of my high school career, and have continued to do it in college. I have babysat for many families and have become the go to person for my friends to ask to babysit if they cannot make it. I really enjoy babysitting and taking care of children. The is a place for children and teenagers to get tutoring in English and math. I have worked at for two years and love it. I grade and record worksheets, help them read and do math, and am there for them for anything they need help with. I have worked with a large variety of children ages 2 to 15.

Meg U.

Meg is a very fun, loving nanny❤️ She pays full attention to the children and keeps them happy, feeds them, bathes them, dresses them and tucks them into bed at their scheduled time. She also keeps the house clean. We love Meg. - Sandra

Megan K.

Megan is so wonderful with my children. She is patient and gentle and fun. She has watched my children as infants and my older elementary children. She has engaged my son with down syndrome and helped with his behavioral needs as well. She is an incredible young lady whom I would have watch my children any day. - Jen

Kayla B.

Kayla takes charge from the moment she walks in the door. I have three children with a big gap in ages. She takes on each seamlessly. She is sweet and wise beyond her years. Our children absolutely adore her. As an added bonus, she was so helpful with household chores and organizing without me ever having to ask. Kayla moved away and we were all heartbroken. My kids still FaceTime with her! - Aryn

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Mercer Island, 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.

Mercer Island 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 Mercer Island? 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 Mercer Island?
  • 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.
