Genesis Garmakani
Santa Monica$25/hr  |  6 yrs experience
Hi my name is Genesis!
I was born and raised in Santa Monica, and am the eldest of four siblings. I am going into a nursing program soon which I am very excited about. I enjoy arts and crafts and have always loved being around children. I love animals too! I enjoy reading and spending time with family, I also love to be present and positive. The past six years as a nanny has taught me many things but the one thing that has stuck with me above everything else is how great of an impact I can make in a child's life. The bond that is created between nanny and child is something very special that I have been fortunate enough to experience in my nanny career.

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.

Imperia E.

Reliable girl, if my mother need it something she will always get it for her on time. She is carrying. - Elena Hernández

Imperia E.

She was very care and because she takes psychology classes she was able to give more extra care . She has a children class and she takes care and encourage them to do better for a better future. - Ernesto

Ashmita S.

Ashmita is very caring, respectful, timely, and dependable! I’m a single mom and she’s been both an amazing friend and an excellent babysitter for my daughter. I’ve had to work late a few times and she has been able to pick her up from daycare and take care of her until I’m able to get off work. My daughter loves her and so do I! Highly recommend! - Alicia

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

Santa Monica 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.
