Forestville, Bristol$13/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hello! My name is Jessica, and I love to be able to help take care of your child. I have a 7 year old daughter and I'm a member of my daughter's PTA where I volunteer throughout the year and next year will be running the book fair which runs three times a school year. I have always loved kids and being able to help a family be able to have the work/life balance they need. In the past I was a head teacher in the toddler room for over two years and for an infant room for and year and a half at a daycare in Cheshire and have taken an EMT course at SCSU. I have also been CPR, first date, epi and AED certified in the past as well anf I'm willing to become certified again. The safety of your child is my top priority. While working at the daycare, I was responsible for four children, planning and executing a lesson plan full of fun and age appropriate activites. Since then I had worked at an insurance company has an insurance agent for 9 years where I decided to pursue my passion of family photography, which I've been doing happily for the past year. With my daughter going to school now full time, and now looking for part-time work while she's in school. I am currently 31 years old living in Bristol Connecticut with my husband, daughter, two small sized dogs and a cat. So if you have animals, I'd be more than happy to help with them as well while you're away. I've had a valid driver's license since I was 16 with no accidents or moving violations and I'm a non-smoker. Please feel free to message me with any questions that you may have. I love to be considered as your babysitter/nanny.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Bristol, CT

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 Bristol can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Bristol 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 Connecticut?
  • Do you have a Connecticut 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.
