Hey! I'm a junior in high school and I have finally come to the conclusion that I want to be a nanny (while doing night classes) after I graduate. Do you suggest there's anything I can do to better my chances of getting with a family? I have babysitting experience but that's obviously nothing compared to taking care of somebody's children full time. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated very much, thank you!! (:
Hey! Just keep your ears open to families that you know through school, church, etc. The family I’ve been with since I was 16 were my soccer coaches so I’ve been very blessed to have a connection there for so many years. Definitely easiest to be with a family you know or have mutual friends with.
Be with a family you trust/they trust you. That’s huge if you’re going to be with their kids multiple days a week. That helps in disciplining them if needed, taking them out of the house, driving them around and getting into a routine.
If you end up finding a great family, just have fun. Babysitting kids before will definitely help you out a ton, nannying is really just more consistent hours and varies with each family as to how much they’ll expect of you. I love my job. I love hanging out with all three kids in my summers, diaper bag, mini van and all. :)
