Hire a babysitter in West Hollywood, CA

Sha Goode
Central LA, West Hollywood$25/hr  |  1 yrs experience
My name is Sha (pronounced Shay) and I'll be relocating back home to SoCal in mid-late October.

After spending almost 4 years in corporate retail (first at Target's Corporate Headquarters in MN then at a few different retailers in NYC) I decided to hang up that part of my life and pursue another passion mine, fitness.

I'm now a fitness professional (Personal Trainer & Fitness Coach) and also started my own Brand Development & Consulting firm and have enjoyed every minute of it!

While I've loved that last two years in NYC, I'm ready to be back home and closer to family (grew up in Orange County), which brings me to Nanny Lane.

I'm 27 years old and while I will certainly continue to pursue my own passions, I'm also looking for the opportunity to connect with a family in need! My love of children is UNREAL and until I'm ready to settle down and start a family of my own, I'd love to help bring ease and peace of mind to your life knowing that your babies and children will be treated with love, kindness and playfulness.

In full transparency my experience is primarily with family, friends and past coworkers, caring for their infants and toddlers during date nights, day trips and work hours. I am CPR certified, know my. way around the kitchen, am one heck of a neat freak and enjoy Disney movies (in fact still own my childhood collection).

I have so much love and experiences to share with your family and I hope I get the opportunity to work with you soon.

xx,
Sha

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.

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

West Hollywood 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.
