A little bit about me…

Please read before making decisions......
I Am A Black Girl— and the reason I say this because most of the families I’ve worked for had family MEMBERS who didn’t want me around their loved one’s because of my skin color! BUT —
I’m very protective and loving to other kids. I treat as my own. I’m very sweet ,charming, truthfully and trustworthy. I treat any kid that I come in contact with as if they were my own.

A little bit about me…

Hello, my name is Savannah. I am 20 years old. I have been looking to find a family to help with their needs mostly when it comes to their children. Children have been such a strong passion of mine. To be able to see them grow into strong inviduals. With the generation I live in I want to see this next generation to grow more stromgly and for them to see their self worth and to know they can always achieve any goal they set their minds too. I think what sets me apart from a lot of other people is my patience when it comes to children. They are so young and some have such a hard time wording their emotions and how they feel. I want to be able to be that sitter\nanny that any child could rely on. Someone who will sit there is listen to their needs and try to see things from their prospective, they may be young but all they want is to be understood. I would love to be able to be the next thing in your childs life. (:

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Arkansas

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.

Arkansas 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 in Arkansas?
  • Do you have a Arkansas 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.
