Avalon, Bakersfield$20/hr  |  9 yrs experience
Dear family,

My name is Carlena Torrens and I am from New York but have been studying and traveling abroad since I was 16. I am fluent in Spanish, and English. I have positive energy, and am loving, dependable, responsible, well traveled, honest, and very flexible. I am available to work anytime in June until the end of August. I would love to become part of your family for this summer while maintaining safety and amazing care for your children.
As I said earlier I have been working with kids since I was 15. I started babysitting when I was 15 and that leads to being a nanny for a family of six. Later I was head English teacher in Bali for 5 months. I was a speech therapist working with toddlers with disabilities for 1 year interning with my father. I was a camp counselor for kids with brain tumors. I am patient, resilient, equal, fun, loving, passionate, and very hardworking and will do anything to make you and your children lives fun, easy, and safe.

Hi! Just a college student nearly done with my Bachelor’s degree. I’m 22 and love to be clean and tidy around the house. I love hanging with kids. I prefer to care for infants but toddlers are fun as well. I used to work at a summer camp as a counselor and so I know how to handle multiple kids at once. I am open to helping with kid’s laundry, meals and homework.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Bakersfield, CA

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 in Bakersfield can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Bakersfield 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 California?
  • Do you have a California 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.
