My name is Lisa Ventour and I grew up in Brooklyn New York but moved here to LA in the early 2010s. I first started looking after children at 16 when my parents had an at-home daycare where I would help out with the daily activities such as prepare and organize meals, help monitor the children, was in charge of “playtime”, and change the diapers of the small children we had.

I looked after two kids who I absolutely loved and adored but then they moved across the country permanently. Now I’m looking to obtain another full time nanny position. On my free time I bake a lot of assorted pastries such as cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops. I cook as well and I enjoy cooking for my friends and family. I would absolutely love to perhaps teach your wonderful kids to bake as well if they were interested. And in the summer I volunteer for a week as a camp counselor in Big Bear which i’ve been doing for three years now. Anyway, let me know if you have any further questions!

As a family studies major, I love working with families in a close, genuine setting. What is more genuine than your home? I know how important it is to find the right caretaker for your kids and I take the responsibility very seriously. From nannying to working with the Boys and Girls club to being a teen camp counselor, I have experience with many different age groups and love them all. I love music, being outside, and making fun memories. I love to be goofy but most importantly my goal is to make sure your children feel safe and loved. I'm excited to be a part of your family!

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

Thousand Oaks 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.
