Jenna B. - Seeking Work in East Windsor
Jenna B.
East Windsor$13/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Liberal Studies. I was child CPR and First Aid certified by the American Red Cross on June 9, 2006 (CPR certification has since expired). I'm 25 years old now, and have been babysitting since I was 12. My brother is 6 years younger than I am so I constantly babysat him while we were growing up. I have five younger cousins who I babysat growing up who are now between the ages of 7 and 12. Two of them I babysat for two entire summers about 30 hours a week. They were 4 and 7 at the time. As far as professional childcare experience goes, one summer I was a camp counselor where I supervised children between the ages of 5 and 11 for 35 hours a week. In the fall of 2006 I was a part-time nanny in Windsor, CT for three children ages 5, 8, and 11. I would pick them up from school and take them home until their parents got home or to after-school activities such as football and cheerleading. After that I was a full-time nanny in South Windsor, CT for two children ages 5 and 7. My responsibilites included: getting them ready for school and on the bus in the morning, off the bus in the afternoon, feeding the 5 year old lunch and caring for her, and then getting the 7 year old off the bus later that afternoon and caring for both of them until their mother arrived home. On occasion I started the family dinner. While the children were at school I maintained the house by doing dishes, laundry, weekly grocery shopping, and general cleanup. Once a week I was responsible for taking the 5 year old to her gymnastics class.

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

East Windsor 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.
