I am a born and raised Santa Rosa native, growing up with six siblings (and being the oldest), child care is a skill I am very competent in. In my previous nanny job, I drove the two kids back and forth from school and activities, made two meals a day and provided housework.

Paige T.

Paige babysat my kids a few times, while I was out of town for a wedding and a date night with my husband. When we came back home, at night, the house was tidy and there were no toy messes. My kids said they watched Moana, played board games, and read books. The kids were clean and in bed before bedtime, too! She did an amazing job! - A Church Mom

Paige T.

She is super loving, and always brings a smile to my daughter. She would babysit play dates, when my child had her friends over. Paige played dress up, colored and painted, even played house and pretend kitchen. My daughter still talks about Paige today! - Rebecca

Jasmine G.

What really amazed me with Jasmine's work ethic was her way of communicating what her schedule was like and able to accommodate with things I would like her to do. My nephew really loves her and she helps him with making him food & anything he might need. Definitely recommend! - Brian

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

Santa Rosa 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.
