I grew up in a fairly large family. Being one of the oldest children, I have been caring for children for many years. Since I was 12 years old, I have been babysitting for others outside my family. From infants to 12-year-old kids, I strive to appreciate where each and every child is in their life and give them personalized care by playing with their favorite toys and teaching them new things at whatever level they are. I usually watch 2 to 5 kids at a time. The summer of 2016 I watched regularly twins from 2 months till they were 6 months. It was an amazing experience that I really enjoyed. I have had experience working in a child development center specifically in the 2-3-year-olds classroom and subbed in the infant room. I am certified in First Aid and CPR. To sum up, I just love kids and how they are each unique and special and would love to have the opportunity to watch your kids. Thank you for your time.

I have recently graduated from high school and plan on continuing my education in college. I many have a wonky schedule but I am willing to work through it!! I have regularly been taking care of my two nieces and nephew, where I assist with their sports, meal prepping, tutoring and light housekeeping. These are all attributes I'd carry on to your family. I am 100% a kid lover as I cherish nothing more than them. Seeing such bright smiles on the kids is my motivation. I have nothing but pure intentions and look forward to assisting your family. :))

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

Santa Ana 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.
