Breanna B.

Breanna was amazing! She watched my 18 month old and 4 year old in her home. It was very clean, her animals were very friendly. She was willing to pick up my 4 year old from preschool and take her to and from extra activities. She was always ready on time. Very flexible with hours and last minute work issues. She was a true blessing! - Laura

Ashley W.

Ashley was a wonderful nanny! She is kind, trustworthy, and dependable. You can tell that she truly loves kids and enjoys being around them. My children were always excited to see her. She provided them a structured environment but also played and had fun with them. She a I would highly recommend her for any nanny job. - Summer

Da’Ronda R.

Da’Ronda was such an amazing person. My son connected with her right a way. She kept him during the summer for me because he was still too young for summer camp in my town. He looked forward to his adventures with her daily. He loves sports and she made sure he was constantly moving and enjoying himself. - Tamara

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in the United States

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Babysitter Interviews:

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR?
  • Do you have a driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

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 babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
