Jade Galvan
Novato$28/hr  |  13 yrs experience
Hello families! My name is Jade, and I am a mother of two beautiful children ages 9 and 11. I have been caring for children full time since I was 18, either as a nanny or working in a daycare. Caring for children has brought joy to my life. Seeing them grow every day and knowing that I have been part of their learning experience is a great feeling. While my primary focus is caring for the children and making sure their needs are met, I also help with any household duties like cleaning, laundry, errands and grocery shopping. I am a CPR and First AID certified.

Oh, and I love animals!

Hi, I'm Kyra!
I'm a recent college graduate from CSU Long Beach, and I just moved back to my hometown to start looking for a job. I used to babysit all the time in high school, and I've always loved kids, so I thought nannying would be a great idea! I also used to volunteer at girl scout camp for many years, so I have lots of experience with all different age ranges. I have full availability, and my own car to drive to work. Also, back in high school I was cpr certified, but I need to take a refresher course (which I of course will do and confirm before starting any job).

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

Novato 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.
