Henderson$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. I started out watching neighborhood kids. After I graduated from high school in 1994 I attended the local junior college and worked at KinderCare for 1 1/2 years to help pay for tuition. During this year and a half I also watched my friend's children periodically and this turned into a more permanent situation. I lived with them for the summer before I went off to a 4 year college. While I attended college away from home; Eastern Illinois University; I worked at 2 different day cares. My first year I worked at large corporate owned day care My second year of college I worked for a group home day care. For 3 summers while I was in college I worked at a summer camp for girls in Northern Wisconsin. I lived in a cabin with a group of girls who I was responsible for and I also taught equestrian and arts & craft classes. After I graduated college with a masters in art history I taught part time at the local junior college and got married. I also worked at Day Care in the Toddler room for a year. My husband's job was transferred and I found out I was expecting so I decided to watch children from my home so I didn't have to send my son to day care. I cared for a 4 year old and a 9 month old in my home for a year and a half. My husband's job was then transferred again so I opened a licensed day care in my home where I watched 5 children plus my own 2 children. I did this for a year and a half. My husband then got a job promotion which brought us here to Colorado where we plan to stay for a long time.

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

Henderson 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.
