The Guerena Family - Hiring in San Marcos

The Guerena Family

San Marcos, CA
$20/hr
3 kids

A little bit about us…

We have a 16 month old girl, 7 year old boy and a 5 year old girl. I’m looking for someone to start part-time watching the baby M-F from 8-3 and eventually will need M-F 8-6. My two older kids take the bus home and arrive around 3pm. They would need care for just a few hours in the afternoon. Responsibilities would be the kids first and foremost which includes meal prep and activities. Light cleaning of the kitchen and maybe basic meal prep so I can cook dinner when we get home from work. There would be no pick up or drop off.

A little bit about us…

Looking for an outgoing and energetic live-out, part-time nanny to start ASAP. We have a super sweet and active little boy who is just about 14months. I'm looking to increase my hours at work in a couple of months and want to get to know someone before then.

A little about us: I am a veterinarian and my husband works in the Bering Sea--deadliest catch-esque (2months on/2 months off). We have two very well trained border-collies and a horse. Hubs loves deep sea fishing and desert trips (Baja, glamis etc). I love being a mama, riding my horse, wine, and tagging along for my husband's adventures.

Currently: T/W/Th 8:00am-2:00pm flexible additional days if needed.
**I'd like to increase to 4x/week 8-5pm this summer (no weekends unless we coordinate something together). I'm happy to work together and adjust for the right person.

A few baby-related chores (clean up after meals, light laundry, pick up toys).

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

San Marcos 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.
