Devon Watson
Seattle$23/hr  |  9 yrs experience
My name is Devon Watson! I am 25 years old and working with children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I have been both a part-time and full-time nanny for the last decade and it is the best job ever. I have taught many children's enrichment programs in the past (dance, gymnastics, sports, mommy and me, family yoga, and various preschool programs) as well as developing my own children's yoga program since I am also a yoga teacher! I love to get outside as much as possible, walks, adventures to the park, and playdates with your little one's friends are my favorite things to do! Home management is also an area I have experience with, everything from housekeeping to organizing to groceries I am happy to support the family and help the house run smoothly.

Kenneth Applewhaite
Wallingford, Seattle$23/hr  |  4 yrs experience
Hi there, my name is Kenneth. I am a 22 year old recent graduate from the University of Washington with a background in childcare. For 3.5 years, I worked as an afterschool activity leader where I work with children with special needs, created robust education programs, and helped plan and supervise field trips off-campus. In addition to this, I worked for 10+ years as a volunteer for vacation bible schools, as a camp counselor at a summer camp, and as a personal baby sitter for friends and family members since I was 16. I love the outdoors, making art, cooking, and finding ways to make chores fun (cleaning can be equally as efficient while dancing).

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Seattle, 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.

Seattle 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 Seattle? 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 Seattle?
  • 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.
