Golden$12/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am 18 years old and am currently attending Metropolitan State University majoring in Aviation and Aerospace Science. Although I am young, I have a lot of experience working with kids and love watching them grow and succeed! While in high school I volunteered for 3 years at Pleasant View Elementary School for National Honors Society. At the school I did everything from running after-school clubs , like fun + fitness, to working one on one with students on home work and various projects. I also spent a week at an overnight camp with sixth graders called Outdoor Education Lab School. This program allows sixth graders to get out of the classroom and learn in a completely new environment. They go on different hikes all week and choose “electives” to take while getting to interact with each other and earn rewards for good behavior. As a leader here, my responsibility was to take about 12 kids at a time and teach them about the biosphere! In addition to this I was responsible for about 15 kids in the bunks at night along with 2 other leaders. The most rewarding experience that I have had was working with special needs kids at a summer job I had previously with a facility called Megan’s Place. Here, I was responsible for 3 kids at a time watching them and making sure they were happy and healthy. We took the kids on all sorts of field trips to Jump Street, the rec center for swimming and more! I was able to get to know and see each of them grow. It is also because of this job that I am trained in some medical procedures, know a little bit of sign language, and am CPR certified. I look forward to meeting your family!

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

Golden 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.
