My name is Shaylan. I am 27 years old and have been waitressing for about 6 and a half years. I am recently out of work due to the COVID19 so I have lots of availability! I have a younger sister as well as a younger brother. Growing up I always helped care for my siblings. My mom was a single parent and was always working so I took full responsibilty for making sure they were taken care of whether it be feeding them, dressing them and just entertaining them. I have also babysat for children of family friend’s. My very first job when I was 15 was at a gymnastics association. I worked there for about 3.5 years working with children from the ages of 6 months to 14. Children are a blessing and I want to make sure that yours are well taken care of :)

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Antonia M.

Antonia was our nanny when we lived in the greater Bay Area for a year. She was absolutely incredible - caring for our then 1-year-old full-time and our 5-year-old after school (including pick up). She was attentive, reliable and nurturing. The girls had a wonderful relationship with her, and she was very good at communicating with us. I would recommend her as a nanny without hesitation. - Maria

Antonia M.

Antonia is such a caring, loving and responsible person. She will go above and beyond when she is with your child. My kids loved being with her as she is fun and enthusiast. Could not ask for more in a nanny. - Pilar Rincon

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.
