Noni Jackson
Aloma$18/hr  |  13 yrs experience
Hello my name is Noni, I’m a store manager at Claire’s, and also known as “every young girls dream store”. I am 20 years old, and I get to go to work everyday and just talk to kids. Some of my responsibility included helping children shop, hosting birthday party’s, hosting makeovers, ear piercings, as young as 3 weeks old. I have seen every situation you can imagine, when pertaining to children, mostly because of my job’s consumer base. But also because I have 6 brothers and sisters, I was the exact middle child. From a young age, my dad would work, and my mother stayed at Home to homeschool. My mother had a friend that I started to nanny for at age 8. I watched the girls for years and I got the chance to help a very overwhelmed single mother take care of 2 really cute girls. I have an enormous amount of energy, and experience with children. No matter the situation, I am equipped to handle it!

TEMPLE TERR$18/hr  |  4 yrs experience
I grew up in a place where cows outnumbered people and always doing the right thing was placed at the top of the totem pole, in the beautiful state of Wyoming. I learned at a young age how important integrity was in order to succeed in life.

I played college volleyball and am also a coach here in Tampa. I enjoy being active, going on adventures, cooking, and reading. I have been told that my presence is friendly and welcoming.

I received my bachelors degree in Psychology and am now pursuing my Masters in Healthcare Administration. I am also CPR certified.

I have over 5 years of nannying experience with each experience being over 2 years.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Florida

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Florida 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 Florida?
  • Do you have a Florida 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.
