Hi my name is Ashley and I think I would make a great nanny because I have a little sister that I help take care of and I would always help my family members take care of the kids.

Am also an responsible person am also an quick leaner when I comes to hands on things I like to make everything is in order. I also love to see kids happy because it makes me to see that the kid is happy because I don't want the kid to have any unhappy memories like I do when I was a kid

Lillian Barbosa
Whittier$13/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have worked with children since about the age of 13. From babysitting, volunteering at church kids programs, & taking care of friends and family's kids. I love kids with all my heart and I have always wanted to start babysitting and be able to do something that I love. I can guarantee that you won't be let down or disappointed if you consider hiring me. I will provide the care you need and put all my heart into it because kids are amazing and deserve to be in good hands. I have a lot of younger siblings that i have not met and I have not really had the chance to live and build a relationship with them or spend time any time with them. I do live with my youngest sister who I just recently met and it's been an amazing experience. But I feel this happiness when I meet kids and as I get to know them more I feel like family. So it would really mean a lot to be able to do something that im passionate about.

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.
