Preslie Reza
Whittier$15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hi!! My name is Preslie Reza. I am 18 years old. I just graduated from La Habra High School. I was planning to attend Mt. SAC to play golf, but as of right now the season has been postponed due to the pandemic. My senior year, I completed an EMT class through NOCROP and I am CPR certified. One of my main goals is to become an EMT and later I plan further my career in the Emergency Medical field. The last part of my senior year, I was online so I totally understand the struggles of distance learning. I had to help my younger sister with it, and I feel that I can definitely help out with that if needed. I have a lot of experience with babysitting children. I have cousins aging from infant to teen. My family and I are very aware of COVID-19 and we take precaution by practicing social distancing and wearing masks correctly when we are out in public.

My daughter says I’m a fun cool mom so that has to count for something ! :)
Katherine Tennyson
Whittier$13/hr  |  1 yrs experience
Hello! My name is Katherine, I am an 18 year old undergraduate student at the University of San Diego, but I am currently home in Whittier for the summer. I have roughly 5 years of experience as a babysitter/nanny, during which I babysat mostly during the weekends and throughout the summer in high school and nannied during the week in college. I have worked one on one with special needs children, and I have also babysat as many as seven children in a family at a time. I have been an occasional tutor for a few years, so homework help is not something out of my norm, if needed. I have my own car, am willing to drive anywhere if needed, and I have a clean driving record, so it would not be a problem to run errands or drive around your kids.
I am a very outgoing person who loves being around people, especially kids! I just recently renewed my CPR, First Aid, and AED certification just recently expired. I am a nonsmoker and I plan on being a positive influence in your children's lives!

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

Whittier 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.
