A little bit about me…

My name is Jil Sandy and I’m 25 years old. I've been living in California for almost 3 years.
I came here with Cultural Care as an Aupair in 2019. The Aupair experience was the best time in my life. I grew so much as a person and learned a lot about myself.
I came to this country all by myself which made me really independent and mature for my age. I'm originally from Germany. I grew up in Dresden, a beautiful city in the east. I'm fluent in German and English as well. Back in Germany I have a lovely Family.
I grew up with a single mom and my 2 younger siblings.
When my mom got really sick in 2018 I took care of my younger sister so she could focus on her healing process. I'm a really open minded and loving person.
I start everyday with a smile and just make the most out of everything. I have a lot of energy and I’m always respectful with everyone around me and my environment.

A little bit about me…

Hello everyone! I am a recent graduate from Pepperdine University with a B.S in Psychology! I have been working with children for about four to five years now. My experience ranges vastly- from interning as a School's Psychologist's Assistant, to babysitting all my way through college and working with children with special needs. I was born and raised in Guatemala so if you are interested in your child learning Spanish, I would be more than happy to help with that. I am a creative and fun individual who will prioritize your child at all times!

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.
