First and foremost, I love working with children. I am currently working at a preschool for children with autism and other related disorders. I am a teacher's assistant as well as the behavior specialist in the classroom. I have been working there for the past 5 years. The classroom runs from 9am-3pm. I work on everything from educational goals (reading, writing, labeling, speech)to feeding to social skills to potty training along with behavioral intervention/behavior modification. I also work in a one-on-one environment doing private in-home therapy for children with autism. I enjoy both settings for different reasons. The classroom because I am great in multi-tasking and I love the chaos! The home environment I like because I really appreciate the one-on-one time. Although I plan to work in the special education field, I love working with typical children just as much. I believe that working in the special education field has taught me a lot of strategies that I am able to implement with typical children as well. I constantly babysit for friends and family. I have many nieces and nephews. My mother has been a nanny for a very long time and often times, I have substituted for her when she has not been able to make it to work.

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 Palmdale, 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 Palmdale can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Palmdale 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.
