My name is Megan and I’ve had over 10yrs Nanny experience with full time, part time and on call Nanny jobs. I was in the military and believe in integrity, honesty and punctionality. I have a certification in Advanced Nanny Studies and Basic Nanny Skills. I’m in online school for Early Childhood Education that is done at my own pace. I know American Sign Language and enjoy introducing children of all ages to it. Your child will learn through play, take walks in nice weather, field trips to the zoo and other museums.

I am a mother of an 18month old girl who exceeds all expectations. I have 5 years working with children under my belt. Mainly as a swim instructor. I have learned all about development milestones and always implement them with my own daughter during activities. I'm looking to care from my home, or yours, but I will gave my daughter with me. She is wonderful, anyone that meets her loves her. Please feel free to reach out to do a test run of our children together if you need to.

Hello! My name is Sebastian, and my pronouns are they/them.

I have been a preschool teacher since October of 2015, and a childcare worker for a great deal longer! I value compassionate, generous, and honest communication with both adults and little ones alike--my philosophy is rooted in positive, gentle care-giving with an emphasis on child lead play-based learning. Whenever possible I like to be outside with the children in my care, getting dirty and experiencing all the sensory opportunities nature has to offer!

I am STARS certified, have an up-to-date CPR/First-Aid card, a clear TB test, and I complete regular additional training annually through DEL/MERIT (which includes safe sleep, blood borne pathogens, etc). I also have an up-to-date Washington State Food Handler's Permit.
My Portable Background Check through MERIT is available on request.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through my profile, I hope to hear from you soon!

Hello, my name is Carolann. I am from Vestal, New York. I recently moved to Washington this past month as I married a soldier who is stationed at Fort Lewis. I grew up caring for my little sister as my mother was not fit at the time. I have had a babysitting job for the last year caring for a child in one home who was 2 and two children in another home ages 2 and 4. I am CPR certified, knowledgeable in basic first aid such as the Heimlich. I am in the process of buying a car as mine from home just sold so I will be able to transport your child to anywhere they need to be or if an emergency were to occur. I am a caring person who puts others needs before my own when necessary. Children are a big part of my life and I would love to be able to care for yours!

I'm a 24 year old stay at home mom to a spunky 14 month old son and six year old little girl. I left my corporate job to soak up as much time with my baby as possible and realized caring for children is something that I genuinely enjoy doing! I have varied experience with children ranging in age from infancy through 13 years of age and the care I provide also ranges. My son was EBF so I understand how precious a mothers milk is and how to properly handle/prepare for your little babe. In previous jobs I was held accountable to maintain cleanliness of a home while also preparing meals from scratch as the child required a gluten free diet due to an ongoing medical condition. I am extremely reliable, attentive and would prefer hands on play time to engage with a child versus just sticking them in front of a tv. I prefer to take a gentle parenting approach which allows me to understand a child's likes vs dislikes while creating a closer bond between the child and myself. I do not believe in physical punishment as verbally talking out what was wrong, what the expectation is and what they can do next time is more effective while creating a loving and nurturing environment instead of creating fear. I love going outdoors and am all for helping with transportation requests (clean driving record, reliable vehicle with full insurance coverage). I am open to providing assistance around the home if discussed in advance as well as meal prep. Open to care in my home, I live in a newer home in a gated development with fenced backyard, it is baby proof due to having a baby of my own. All the families I have ever cared for have become family. It has been bittersweet parting ways with some of the kiddos but they still FaceTime me and we continue to keep in touch! I'm looking to become apart of the perfect family and really just help some parents out with an honest and genuine nanny that will treat their kids as if they were my own!

Hi there! I’d describe myself as outgoing, loving, and bubbly. My biggest passions include kids, animals, nature, and helping others. Nannying is something I love to do. Being able to play with kids and help them learn/grow is one of my favorite things. I like being outdoors whether that’s camping, hiking or just exploring. Being around family and friends make me happy as well.

Alani H.

She’s great with the kids and reliable. Friendly and honest and plays the piano. Taught my children daily and cooked great meals as well as took them on many adventures. - Elizabeth

Kellye B.

Kellye was amazing with my babies! I had a rough twin pregnancy, and she came in when they were just past 1 month old. She kept the house spotless, kept their laundry up, saw to their every need, and just was a joy to have around. Always a smile on her face and put me at ease immediately, knowing my babies were being taken care of. - Sarah

Makiley O.

She has a gift with kids! She focuses on them and is very loving and caring. The kids sense this from her and love being with her. - Sandee Englund

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Olympia, 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.

Olympia 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 Olympia? 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 Olympia?
  • 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.
