A little bit about me…

Hello families!

My name is Flor and I am a freshman at SBCC.

With 8 years of experience under my belt, I'm highly skilled in working with children of all ages, including multiples and those with special needs. My extensive babysitting experience dates back to when I was 18 years old, and for the past four years, I've been working with the same family. I've completed a course in early childhood development, which has proven to be highly helpful in my nanny years. Being bilingual in Spanish and English, I can offer your children the added benefit of learning a second language. As a responsible nanny, I'm certified in first aid and CPR, and I'll always prioritize your children's safety.

If you're in search of a compassionate and dependable nanny, look no further. I'd be honored to provide the care and support your children need to thrive.

A little bit about me…

I'm Carly. I have been a nanny since 2012. I'm 28. I have worked as a licensed CNA, as a lab tech (yay DNA extraction!), as a tutor, and I also have my own organic makeup business that I am trying to grow. I am a single Mom to a 7 year old boy who attends school during the day. I would like to work while he is away, or even after I pick him up if he may tag along as well/I can find care for him if he cannot tag along for those hours. I have a degree in biology and psychology. My thesis was about how traumatic events experienced in childhood effect development throughout the lifespan. That being said, I only believe in redirecting unwanted behaviors and never being harsh! My nanny/parenting style is bougie hippy and science based. I love nature and don't believe kids should have screen time. I have experience tutoring. I love organizing and cleaning is relaxing to me. I am one of ten siblings, I have nannies for 5 kids under 6 years old, I can handle multitasking and chaos well!

A little bit about us…

Hello! We’re first time parents to an adorable, curious, sensitive and funny little 20 month old, Cal. Our nanny who we adore and has been with us since Cal was 12 weeks old unfortunately has to leave us in December to deal with some medical issues. We are devastated, but are hopeful we can find another great fit.

Cal is fun, active, silly, sensitive and stubborn and loves to spend lots of time outside. He’s a bit shy at first but warms up quickly. We live on the Mesa near a lot of parks and are looking for someone who is comfortable taking him to and participating in all of activities (currently goes to music class, swim glass, gym, etc). We also would love someone who’s knowledgeable about early child development and can help with fun and stimulating activities that will help our little guy learn and grow!

My husband and I both work from home, so you should be comfortable with us being in the house, though we’ll try to stay out of your way!

We are currently exploring the option of starting half day Montessori day care three days per week so we’re ideally looking for someone open to part time hours (3 half days per week and 1-2 full days per week) but if it was the perfect fit , we could consider full time.

Spanish speaking / bilingual would be ideal, but not a requirement!

If this sounds like you, please reach out!

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.
