Hi there!
I am a full time student who is recently looking for a part time job. I am currently studying Sports Medicine and I am on my second year so I still have a lot of time on my hands before I start to transfer. I am a very friendly individual and I love all kids! I know this isn't much to everyone but hopefully it is to someone. I hope to meet you and your little ones soon!

My name is Mary Roberts and I am a San Diego local looking for nanny work Mon-Fri. I have years worth of experience babysitting little ones, but I have never nannied full time. I do have a few qualifications that make me stand out.
A little about me-I was born and raised in Coronado, Ca. I competitively swam throughout high school & college. I have a lot of experience teaching children how to swim and getting them comfortable in water. I am CPR certified, and I am also nationally registered EMT. This alone sets me apart from any other candidate. I have experience delivering CPR, as well as experience responding to many other life-threatening emergencies. I currently work weekends as a waitress at the world famous Corvette Diner, where my job each day is to simply ensure that children have a fun experience. My passion for working with children is extremely special and I cant wait to share it with you and your little one(s). Thank you so much for considering me. God Bless Mary Roberts

In high school I watched an infant 3 months up until she was 12 months during the evenings. I started watching a neighbor's kids which was a set of twins and their brothers. I watched the family for 4 years. My most recent experience was when I lived in Delaware (less than a year ago) I would have my nephew and niece (3 and 5) stay with me every weekend, roughly about once or twice a month I would watch the Spagnolo girls for the weekend as well, they are (6 and 7). My most recent care has been with my friends new baby, he is 3 months and I am more of a mother's help so she can run around and out and get things done.

Saige is just wonderful! In a pinch, I asked my coworker if she knew any babysitters for a time when my current babysitter cancelled on us last minute. Since then, Saige became a regular part of our lives! She is trustworthy, flexible, and knowledgeable about activities for the kids. - Miriam

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

La Mesa 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.
