Diana - Seeking Work in Buena Vista
Buena Vista$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am seeking a full time, long term position. Ideally the position would be or would turn into more of a governess role since I am obtaining my degree in Elementary Education. Currently I am the lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher in a private school. My class consists of 15 children, ages 4 and 5. I am responsible for all lesson plans, conferences, discipline, guidance in learning difficulties, and working with parents on educational goals. Each child in my class is beginning to read words and write, can do addition and subtration, fractions, count money, tell time, and has become an independent, loving, accepting person. In the afternoon I oversee a daycare for 20-25 children, ages 2 1/2 - 10. I previously worked with 3 children ages 5, 10 and 12 as a full time nanny, and for a single dad with 2 children, 8 and 10 as a full time household manager/nanny. I have worked with all ages of children as well as twins and newborns. I have experience with Asperger's', ADD, ADHD, seizures, dyslexia, and learning difficulties. I worked at an orphanage in India while living with a native Indian family. I am available for some travel. My past employers say I am very detail oriented and able to multi-task. I have excellent references, letters of reference, a detailed resume, and a portfolio with past and current childcare experience. I am in school to be a teacher, however, I attend online all of my classes and so it does not in any way interfere with my flexibility as a nanny. As a professional nanny, I devote my time and energy with each family to their children's well being above anything else. I am a naturally clean, tidy and organized person, and am more than happy to help with any child-related duties - from the child's laundry to organizing their clothing. I believe any type of heavy housecleaning is best done by someone who can focus on that only, and so I do not accept positions where heavy housekeeping is involved in the nanny position. If you have an infant, I have extensive experience with newborns, even taking care of 2 sets of newborn twins, and am able to set sleep schedules with your child and set regular feedings as well. I also am familiar with many types of childcare, such as Dr. Sears methods or the Ericsson's theory, so we can plan a daily routine for your baby around your preferences. I can also work with any other caregivers to make sure our days work together smoothly.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Buena Vista, CO

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 Buena Vista can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Buena Vista 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.
