My name is Tiffany. I am 30 years old and very passionate about the health, safety, and well-being of children. I am not particular about the age of children that I care for because I care for them all. I seem to have an innate ability to connect with children and am able to understand and communicate with them very well. I am very patient, fair, and kind. I have had no problem with any child nor a complaint from a parent/guardian whom in which I have cared with and for. If I were to have one downfall when it came to children, it would be attachment. I am currently a full time student majoring in Child Development. Seeking more experience because you can never have too much!

Hi I am Caroline! Being the oldest in my family has made me the "built-in" babysitter of the family. I have been babysitting and nannying for other families since I was about 13 years old. I have also worked as a camp counselor in the past. I have ample experience with multiple children, children of all ages, and children with special needs. I am excited to speak with you and hope to meet your family soon!

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.

The Vorwald Family
& Betty Mendes
San Diego$20/hr  |  1 kid
We have an amazing nanny who has been caring for my son and another little girl of the same age since they were 4 months old. The other family has to leave our share and we are looking for someone to take the little girl's place. Betty, our nanny, speaks to them in spanish (my son can say more in spanish than english), gets them outside for >60% of the day, and takes them around San Diego to see all the parks, museums, zoo, Sea World (you name they've been there). We have been looking to enroll them in other classes (music, dance, swim, arts, etc) that she can also taken them to. We are open to all ages but a child around one year would be ideal.

We are located in North Park. Betty watches the kids from 7am-3pm Mon-Fri and we pay her taxes and employment fees so total is about $20/hour (or $10/hr split).
The Kamalova Family
& Ina Kryzhnyk
San Diego$18/hr  |  1 kid
Looking to share my awesome nanny. She is amazing with my 9 month old girl. She speaks Russian and English fluently. She is older and therefore far more mature. This is Ina's full time job and she takes it very seriously. She loves taking my baby outside for long walks. I live 3 blocks from the beach so they go to the water every day. I have two very friendly dogs and a big back yard that can accommodate toys. I have Ina at my house from 9am until about 6pm Monday through Friday. I am looking to nanny share with a family with an older child, 2yrs and above.

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.
