Hi there! My name is Meghan and I am a Neuromuscular Therapist when I’m not nannying. I’m hoping to find a great family I can help out part time while I build my private practice as a NMT. I’ve always loved spending time around children as I’m a big kid at heart! I have a college degree in theater and was able to work as a Summer Camp Theater Teacher in Santa Rosa a few years ago. I had so much fun with all the kids! I am very responsible and will care for your kids as if they were my own.

18 year old girl.

I live in Petaluma. I don’t mind driving to where you live. :)

I love kids! I have a lot of patients with little ones. I was a nanny of a 3 yr old girl, and a 1 yr boy, took care of them for about 1 year. I saw the little boy grow! Sadly they moved houses and weren’t interested in my help no more.

I can help with anything around the house, clean, do laundry, cook, and of course take care of the little one/s, play with them/her/him, teach them new things.

I Would Love to be someone’s nanny, and watch they grow and Learn many things!🥰

Hi! I have been babysitting since I was a young girl about 10 years of experience. I love children and think that they all carry a special and unique outlook of the world. I love to come up with fun ways to distract the children with crafts, song, dance, outside games and more. I am currently attending Sonoma State to become a teacher. I hope that I continue to learn more about children while I nanny to prep me for teaching life. I am very reliable and organized.

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

Petaluma 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.
