As long as I can remember I have wanted to work with children. Starting at the age of 15, I started babysitting regularly for a family with daughters between the ages of 4 and 6. Later, I nannied for a wonderful family with a 6 and 8 year old for a couple of years before I went to Nursing school. Since then I have worked at various elementary schools as a health technician working with children from kindergarten to 6th grade. Recently, I have decided to switch gears and go back to school to get my Liberal Studios major to become a teacher. I am CPR and IV certified, have a reliable car, and have a pristine background check. I moved to Chico about a month ago from Southern California and I look forward to finding a great family to work with!

Hey! I’m Lily, a 21 year old student. I started nannying a couple years back to help with schooling, and found great joy in such a personal job like nannying. I’m in search of a family to grow with! Trusting your child with a new person can be a big step, and that’s why I decided to get CPR/AED certified in 2019. I want every family to feel secure in having a nanny. If you have any questions or want to request references, shoot me a message!

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

Chico 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.
