Karabo is engaging and fun. My kids loved her positive energy and fun spirit. She cared for each of my kids, ages 0-6 without a problem. She knew how to walk the line of discipline and fun very well and I trusted her with my kids! She is a good driver also, which was a big help! - Lizzie
We absolutely love Allison. She quickly became a part of family. Allison has a very mellow, go with the flow attitude and was flexible with our unpredictable work schedules. She was always on time and available. Most importantly she adored our children and always engaged in fun/creative activities. She is kind, caring, respectful and excellent with kids. - Brittany
I can not recommend Allison more highly! She is absolutely fantastic. She is our full time nanny for our four month old baby girl. She is trained in early childhood development, is incredibly reliable, and is flexible as needed. Most importantly, she is joy to have around our house and our daughter loves her....please feel free to reach out to me for a reference. - Jennifer

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 Littleton can impact how much you pay your babysitter.
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:
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!
