I’m a fun outdoorsy person who loves teaching and guiding children. I try to be someone they can trust and look up to, I want them to feel safe.
I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child and I am honored when families invite me to be a part of their team. Its extremely rewarding to work as a team with families.

I'm a Midwestern, hardworking, energetic, responsible adult, who loves working with children. I enjoy roller blading, kayaking, swimming, biking, camping, really anything outdoors and with friends. I can plan, cook, and serve meals. I'm learning to play the ukulele in my free time. I have four siblings, all brothers, and supportive parents. I'm taking a gap year to nanny before getting involved with YWAM, Youth With A Mission. My faith is important to me, but I don't expect others to share my beliefs, nor do I push my beliefs on others.

Hi! I am a college freshman online who intends to move to Santa Barbara( I attend SBCC) as a nanny, or a live-in nanny. I have taken 3 years of Child education classes and 2 years of interning at a preschool. I speak english, although I have a seal of biliteracy in Spanish. I live in California about a 5 minute drive from the beach. Before the pandemic I worked with about 10 families, but currently I babysit for a family of a 3 and 4 year old, I have been with them for about 15 months now and during quarantine while schools were closed I worked with them up to 36 hours a week. I helped them with their school and zoom calls. I’m very passionate, as I love working with children and hope to be a pediatric psychiatrist in my future. I love to do volunteer work for the community, and listening to other people’s perspectives. I love school and was sad to hear that it will be cancelled for the year. I’m looking for a new family to meet, help out, and love during the times of the unexpected!

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

Santa Barbara 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.
