Hi! I've always loved caring for kids, I've always wanted to be a mom! Even growing up I would babysit for family members then eventually as I got older I started actually getting into babysitting jobs. I'm always open to helping out with house keeping, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, washing dishes, anything pretty much! I'm very artistic and I wouldn't mind bringing crafts over for the kids to enjoy as well. I'm pet friendly, I live in a non-smoking household and I honestly have so much time on my hands ! My availability schedule is open, I can work overnights, date nights, long hours, early mornings etc. I've worked with kids from newborns to 10 years old, this also includes kids with special needs, some who were older than 10. I've worked with kids my whole life and it's something I want to start doing again :)

Litzy Cortez-Nava
Sunnyvale$16/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hello, my name is Litzy Cortez and I am 18 years old. I am a high school senior that will be graduating this June to then head over to UC Riverside in September. I speak both English and Spanish.

I am the second oldest, so I definitely have experience by helping my mother out with my two younger sisters. My sister headed off to college for 5 years, so I took on the role of caring for them while my mother was at work.

Besides helping my mother out, I am actively involved in helping students from the same community that I grew up in. I have volunteered over the summer in a Youth Club program for K-5 students. I am also a mentor to a sweet 7th grade student. I am also a tutor that helps middle school students improve academically.

Working with children is something I have always loved to do. I hope to become a teacher in the future and teach Ethnic Studies to students.

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

Sunnyvale 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.
