"It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Amanda Daugherty. I have had the pleasure of knowing Amanda for over four years. Without hesitation, I have complete certainty in her exceptional character and suitability for a position working with children. During the time that I have worked with Amanda at Lawton Taylor Academy in the Infant rooms, she has demonstrated great qualities in communication, compassion, patience and integrity. For example, she has the ability to identify and communicate the needs of the children in her care in a loving, kind way to the parents that fostered trust and respect. The children felt her sincere love for them and the parents felt safe in her abilities to anticipate the needs of their children. She also established positive relationships among her colleagues through open communication and genuine care. I enthusiasticly recommend Amanda. She embodies a distinct blend of character and interpersonal skills that make her an excellent choice"

"Lori came to be a part of our family and was a wonderful influence on our little guy. I always knew my son was safe and engaged and it was just a pleasure having Lori in our home. She was like the glue that kept everything going. Aside from being a fantastic caregiver who my son loved right away, she had many qualities that made her the perfect nanny. She was dependable, flexible with two families work schedules, always patient and thoughtful and just a genuinely good person. Any family would be lucky to have her!"

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Colorado

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Colorado 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 Colorado?
  • Do you have a Colorado 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.
