I love working with kids of all ages :) . I'm going to school right now for my associate's degree in science. My dream job is to work at a pediatric hospital for children as a phlebotomist. I am CPR and First Aid certified.

Hire a babysitter with great references
Myrtala S.

She took good care of my daughter for a few weeks while I was on a trip. She stayed at my house and kept things clean and organized. - Abby

Izzy A.

Izzy took care of my 3 month old in my home while I worked. She also traveled with us to help with my daughter. She was the baby whisperer!! My daughter was not always easy to sooth and didn't sleep well. Izzy was patient and kept her calm and happy. I was nursing and trying to work. Izzy did a great job of gently keeping me on track. - Wendy

Abi N.

Abi is an incredible Nanny and was able to connect with all three of my girls. They are all very different and everyone of them loved her! She is punctual and diligent in her work ethic. I would highly recommend her. Our loss is your gain! - Colleen

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.
