A little bit about me…

I LOVE children of all ages. I'm an activity person so I love playing games, doing crafts, beach days, picnics, trying new ice cream or coffee shops, and more! I have been babysitting infants since I was 11 years old, I am now 21 and have been a nanny for multiple families, and I have babysat 4 different infants over the years. I also am very experienced with pets, I currently have a 15-week-old puppy who is the sweetest & non-shedding hypoallergenic girl. I ask that I would be able to bring her along to any nannying job, she is training to be a therapy dog so exposure to all ages of children is beneficial. The only time during the week/weekends I would not be available is Thursdays from 6-8:30 pm which is when my puppies' training class is, other than that I am 100% available.

A little bit about me…

Hi! My name is Eli and I am looking for a part time or full time position with a lovely family. I've been described as a "Mary Poppins" type of nanny due to my musical abilities (both singing and instruments) and my signature style of creativity, learning, and fun! I am a gentle, loving caretaker with a passion for fostering child development. With over 5 years of childcare (infant up to 12 yrs old) including kids with autism and PTSD, as well as classroom teaching experience for infant, toddler, and middle/high school, I am well prepared for any situation! I am not a cookie-cutter nanny; I believe in adapting to each child's needs and personality because no two children are the same. Also, I am tidy and enjoy cleaning up and cooking - whatever your needs may be. Let me know if you're interested!

A little bit about us…

We need a nanny in Mira Mesa / Sorrento Valley. We are looking for someone who can spend time with our 19 months old baby boy, who is a healthy, playful, and extrovert guy. I will mostly be working from home, and my wife will be working on-site twice a week. So, we will be roughly around you in any situation. However, both of us get a bunch of meetings and need solid working hours for our job. So, you have to keep him busy with toys, games, outings, etc.

We got a two-bed apartment, and our living space will be organized with a crib and play area (any suggestions are appreciated).

1. We expect you to do positive interaction and make him interested in the learning-based games/toys. English is preferred as the communication language.
2. No cultural binding (at least at this age). We are from South Asia, but we want him to grow up as friendly as you :)
3. No cooking is necessary for the baby’s lunch, but the morning and evening snacks need to be prepare, for example, peeling and chopping fruits
4. Changing diapers, but no shower is needed (he takes only from his Mom) but organizing the play area (if possible) while leaving for the day.
5. Taking him out to the nearest apartment playground, roughly twice in 6 hours.
7. Ring Camera covers our living space.
8. We will do a background check for which we will pay.
9. Should be vaccinated and has references.
10. CPR and First Aid certification is preferable

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

San Diego 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.
