Sarah C.
Suffield$20/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have had numerous Nanning jobs. Family of two. Ages 7 boy (special needs) and 9 year old girl. I assisted the children in preparing for school, dropped them off/ picked up and provided after school care into the evening. I was responsible for meal preparations, light house cleaning, assisting in transportation to aftercare and special needs programs as well as sports and other activities. Helped with homework, and kept children stimulated at home with outdoor/indoor activities. Over the summer I was with children for 8+ hours a day. This entailed transportation to activities planned and creating daily activities myself to keep children occupied. I have also worked with an infant girl from 4months to 2 years of age. This entailed watching full days, feedings, light clean up, bottles and food preparations, timed naps, planned activities to keep the child stimulated during the days such as crafts, games, reading, and playtime. I currently am sitting for 3 children. 4 year old boy, 5 year old boy (special needs) and a 14 year old girl ( special needs). My responsibilities with this family are tending to the boys M-Thurs. pick ups from school and staying with them throughout the evenings. There is limited TV time in this house, so from after school I am to incorporate play time, reading, bath time, and implementing assisted clean ups with the boys to help teach about personal belongings and responsibility. My duties also are fully prepared dinners, errands for the mother, cleaning and organizing. I assist with picking up her 14 year old daughter from boarding school (2hours away)on Sundays and on Fridays I am to grocery shop with her, teach her cooking skills, help with homework, and to just be present with her to allow her some social time.

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

Suffield 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.
