Hi, My name is Lisa and I have over 20 years’ experience in the child care field. I enjoy working with young children because they have so much energy and are always so positive and happy. I love knowing I can make a positive difference in their lives. I feel children learn and grow when they are in a loving and nurturing environment. It’s important for them to have the opportunity to express ones selves and be creative with hands on experiences. Professionally I have worked with and taught children from infants, toddlers, through preschool age. I have been a preschool teacher as well as a Director of several child development centers. I was a Director and Camp Counselor for children ages kindergarten through middle school. I was an emergency foster parent to a 5 year old whom was one of my students in my program, who is Down Syndrome. I am CRP and First Aid certified. There is nothing I enjoy more than having a career I love especially now that my own daughter is grown. Please let me know if this position is still available. I would love the opportunity to interview with you. I can provide you with a copy of my resume as well as some references. Thank you in advance, Lisa

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

Downey 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.
