Hello my name is Lexie I’m 21 years old and here’s a little about my experience! I grew up with my parents doing foster care so I learned how to take care of children early on. I have volunteered in my church children's ministry I was a cheer coach for age 4-15. I also volunteered at an orphanage in La with my youth group that was quite a great experience. I have been around kids and babies my whole life. I love watching them play and seeing how their mind works when they do something new. I also love the feeling of them looking up to me. Babysitting is more of a hobby than a job for me. I did child development all four years of highschool and volunteered in a few elementary schools I have also worked in a daycare so I am fingerprinted and cleared with the state I have my vaccines all up to date and I am CPR certified I have been babysitters and nanny’s for several family’s I would love to meet your family!

Hello! I'm 17 years old and currently am in my junior year of highschool. I have two siblings whom I love very much, a cat named Mouse, and a dog named Tulip. I have experience in taking care of kids because my family is so big and I'm usually the care taker at family get-togethers. I don't do much besides school and waterpolo and now a part time job at Trader Joe's, so my schedule would be very flexible. :)

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.
