Analiese Hettiger
Lower Peters Canyon, Irvine$13/hr  |  1 yrs experience
Hello! I am a college student studying molecular biology and have recently been displaced from my college due to the closure of many universities. I am moving to Stockton and would really enjoy watching kids as I have been babysitting a child of a correctional officer overnight for the past year while I was at my college. I am very nice, well spoken, patient, willing to help with ANY extra duties around the house while nannying, and very well rounded. I can teach both violin and piano in spare time for no extra charge. Tutoring is something I have done in the past for math, science, and reading up to highschool levels and a bit of calculus. I am very willing to start ASAP as again, I am in desperate need of a job in this area to be close to family.

Ashleigh Sweetman
Irvine$25/hr  |  10 yrs experience
Hello! My name is Ashleigh, and I am a certified Elementary teacher with an emphasis in Special Education. I have been a nanny for children of all ages, ranging from 1-5 children per household. My teacher mindset enables me to create meaningful and thought-provoking activities for your kiddos. I have a good driving record, and a safe SUV if your children need transportation. After 4 years in the business and marketing world, my passion of education is calling me back, and I hope to take night classes to obtain my Master’s degree in Special Education (likely to start in 2021). This will not interfere with my nanny schedule, as I plan to schedule my classes around my work schedule. I have ample recommendations from previous families that I’ve worked with, as well as teachers that I have worked with. I am happy to provide parents with whatever they need to have peace of mind regarding childcare :)

Rachel Sunde
Irvine Business Complex, Irvine$20/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
hello! my name is rachel, 30 years old ! I am oldest of five children. I have been a nanny for past 10 plus years. From part time during college to full time after and traveling overseas with families. worked with all ages and currently with a 2.5 year old amazing boy since he was born. I dont see being a nanny as just a job but that you truly become part of the family. I have stayed very close with the families i have worked for. Its very important that the nanny and family have great communication and get along well. It needs to be a good fit all around for what is best for the child.

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

Irvine 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.
