"“Honey” (Alexandria) is the best! We adore her. She is so fun, always singing, dancing and brings thoughtful toys and activities for the kids based on their interests. She is very reliable, always on time and follows schedules well. It’s clear that she is truly enjoying her time as a babysitter and it’s not just a job for her. I was forced to choose an end date for this review but hopefully we can continue to use her for many years to come!"

"Taleah is a true gem. If we had not moved to the East Coast, she would still be working for us. Taleah was amazing with both of my kids, even building trust with my son who is on the spectrum and tough to bond with. They loved when she came over. She also helped out around the house -- dishes, laundry, etc. -- anything to make my life easier. Taleah was sensitive to my needs as a newly single mother and often went out of her way to accommodate my constantly changing schedule. Taleah is trustworthy, dependable, sweet, and great with kids -- everything I needed in a nanny. We miss her already."

A little bit about me…

Hi families! My name is Eva, and I'm a preschool teacher at a play based preschool in Oakland. I am nurturing, compassionate, and responsive with my students and really prioritize children's feelings and building self-esteem. Building positive relationships with children, and seeing them learn, grow, explore their interests, imagination, and creativity is what brings me joy! I'm a firm believer in play-based learning for young children, and that children learn best when doing something they're interested in!
I am First Aid/CPR certified, vaccinated, clean driving record, & my own transportation.
I am currently available for afterschool care or the occasional evening or weekly date-night care. Can do light housework/meals, plan developmentally appropriate activities, do light pet care, and am here to help with anything that your family may need!
I look forward to chatting with you and learning more about your family & childcare needs.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Berkeley, 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 Berkeley can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Berkeley 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.
