A little bit about me…

Hi my name is Emily I am 22 years old and have been working with children since I was 14. The last 2 years I have had the opportunity to work for a family of 4 kids who were 1, 3, 5 and 7 years of age when I started. I also have experience with newborns as well. I am very detail oriented, self motivated, and very passionate with the childcare I provide. My main goal is to help out each family as much as possible, and promote that trust and bond with you as parent so you feel comfortable when you are away from home. I ensure that your children will not only be safe but will have a blast. I love to interact and get in as much hands on activities as possible. I am also comfortable helping out with light house cleaning that you may need help with. I can provide a list of references and letters of recommendations from my previous employers as well as a copy of my resume if need be. I look forward to hearing back from you and as always please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

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

Redwood City 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.
