I absolutely love children of all ages. I am currently in school to be a teacher. I am taking Child development classes at MiraCosta to get a Master Teacher Certificate. I also have experience working as a nanny. I have nannied for two different families in the Carlsbad area. Both of their children were between the ages of 4 and 10. I am also a very creative person. I have taken many college level art studio classes, so I enjoy doing fun and creative indoor/outdoor activities with children. Children bring me so much joy and I would love to bring what I am learning in my child development classes and implement it into my job as a nanny.

Peacock, Oceanside$20/hr  |  17 yrs experience
I have been babysitting/nannying since I was 12 years old; watching newborns all the way to preteens. I have had much experience in this field of work. I take it very seriously because parents need a break and kids need the right kind of care! I enjoy many arts and crafts, sing-a-longs, and outdoor activities. I can also cook and clean if that is something you need, but most importantly, I absolutely love kids! Send me a message if you think I would be a great fit in to your family! My availability may be modified to a steady part time/full time position with a family if need be.

I provide a peace of mind to parents. I will ensure your child(ren) will be treated as if they were my own in a loving and safe environment.

Along with teaching the age appropriate activities for each developmental phase. I believe in open communication and want the parent to be in the know every step of the way.

Oceanside$13/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I've basically been a nanny since I was 12 years old— my little brother was born, and my parents worked a lot. I've done the majority of care for my siblings (6 and 9), including taking them to school and making their meals every day. I guess you could say I have almost 5+ years of experience, haha.
I have also been a lifeguard at a community pool, which included teaching swim lessons. I adore kids, which is why I do well working with them.
As for my personality, I am an artist at heart. I've always been creative and passionate. I spend a lot of my time painting, drawing, playing piano, or just listening to music. I am also somewhat of a neat freak, I use a coaster even in my bedroom and I can't stand letting things become messy.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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

Oceanside 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.
