"We can’t say enough wonderful things about Jenn. She is a real life Mary Poppins and perhaps better. She arrived everyday to watch our children with an energy, optimism, and joy that was infectious. She treated our 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son with care and patience, taking time to understand them as individuals. She pre-planned interesting crafts and activities to keep them engaged and pro-actively arranged afternoon play dates with their friends to take them to. As an employer, the relationship with Jenn was excellent and communicative. She pro-actively sought feedback and received feedback well. As an educator and nanny for previous families, Jenn taught us valuable skills and tips on managing difficult situations with our children. She helped potty train our youngest, a testament to her patience and determination. Any family would be lucky to have Jenn taking care of their children. Childcare is a critical role - we’re fortunate Jenn had this role for our family."

A little bit about me…

My name is Sarah and I’m looking for a great family to nanny for. I started “babysitting” when I was 11 years old and have gone back to it several times in my life when I’ve been in school. I am changing careers from a state early learning policy specialist to an IT specialist and am looking to support myself by nannying, while I am in school getting my certificates. I am strong, active and smart (I hold a masters degree and have an IQ of 147). I am willing to do light house work, meal prep (I’m an excellent baker and chef with a minor in nutrition science), willing to help with homework (I’ve been a professional tutor in the past and have early childhood Ed credits) and creative projects! I’ve raised several children from birth to 6 but you are the experts on your own children-I would never discipline or do projects without your permission first! I am first and and cpr certified [phone number hidden]).

A little bit about me…

I am a Mom to a 5-year-old girl who’s in school full-time. I have experience watching children from infancy through 10. I am open to different ages. I am looking for a full-time or part-time position as a nanny during my daughter's school hours or that allows for flexibility with my daughter if there is an overlap. I am responsible, reliable, and fun. Like doing art projects, going on adventures, and even quality time at home. I have had to rely on nannies and I know how difficult it is if you don’t have somebody who is reliable.

We are Covid vaccinated both my daughter and I.
I regularly educate myself on early child development and I am a ski instructor for littles in the winter. I also volunteer at my daughter's school from time to time and play with the kids after school on the playground.

A little bit about us…

Hello,

We are expecting our first baby in Sep. 2024! We are not finding out the gender, and keeping it a surprise. This is our first child, and we are extremely excited. I work as an Occupational Therapist, and my husband works in marketing/advertising. We are planning ahead for childcare, and hoping to find a nanny to start in February/March 2025 when we both go back to work for 25-34 hrs a week. Baby will be around 6 months old upon the start date. Our ideal nanny will have their own vehicle and be able to watch baby at our home, but also bring them to the park or play groups out into the community. Other duties will include light house keeping (dishes, cooking, laundry, and vacuuming), and taking our dog out for potty breaks. We have a small yard for our 5 yr old Border Collie mix who loves people, going on walks, playing fetch, swimming and cuddling. Looking forward to connecting and having you join and support our growing family!

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.

Daycare vs. Hiring a Nanny

Choosing between putting your child in daycare and hiring a nanny can be a tough decision. While nannies are often more expensive, they provide individualized attention and flexibility. Daycares, on the other hand, prioritize socialization. Our Nanny vs Daycare guide can help you determine what's best for your family.
