I have ten years of childcare experience including teaching and being a family nanny. I began as the neighborhood babysitter watching 1-5 children that I lived near. Then I became the babysitter for a family of 4 boys (twins age 5 and two older brother ages 7 and 10) caring for them some days after school for a few hours or when the parents had a night out. As the boys got older I began caring for a family of 4 girls (twins age 1 and two older sisters ages 4 and 6). The mother was a single parent so I was at their home often. I started out by being with the girls everyday after school and slept over most weekends taking the eldest to Sunday school early Sunday mornings. After being their nanny for a period of months the mother started going away for a few days leaving me with her four. I stayed with that house hold for well over two years. My responsibilities included: caring for the girls; cooking most meals, helping with school work, giving daily medicines and baths as well as providing pleasant outings and bedtimes. Also, I took care of most of the house work: laundry, vacuuming, dishes, etc. I loved being their nanny and watching them grow. Towards the end of my time working in their household I was a part of a High school run kindergarten class. The first part of the school year my class learned about child development. The second part of the year we students taught children ages 3-6 in our class room, 4 days a week. The middle child from the second family I spoke of was also in my PreK class. After this class ended I began caring for a beautiful 4 month old baby boy. I worked form 7am until about 5 pm depending on the parents work schedule. I had most of the same responsibilities at this household with a few additions. I made all of the child baby food by hand in advance and baked almost everyday. The house work was lighter but daily. Also daily, the child and I went for walks then we would have time for him to be exposed to foreign languages by reading books or dancing to music. Both the mother and I agreed these times were very important for her baby. I cared for this child from age 4 months to 16 months until I had to move to Florida. It was very hard to leave that family but here I am now. Hoping to find a new wonderful family that I can be apart of. I have greatly enjoyed every child I have worked with. They have each made an impact on my life and my goal is to do the same for them. I have been specializing in caring for children ages 0-7 for over 3 years in my college classes. I practice these skills daily as Early Learning and Preschool teacher. I have continued to prefect my skills by 40 hours of childcare training through Florida Dept. of Children & Families. This past semester I become a volunteer teacher assistant in a kindergarten at a school focused on healthy living and environmental awareness. It is make dream to one day open a school with the same focus. During my experience with this class I strove to aid children in gaining knowledge of their world while guiding the development of positive social skills. I also participated in behavioral assistance and carried out academic lessons. While working with this class I was glad to able to practice my special education training by being an aid for a student receiving exceptional classroom assistance and accommodations for learning disabilities and an auditory processing disorder.

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

Vail 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.
