Hello:) I’m Haley and I’m 21! I’m very much into arts, I’m currently saving up to go to film school in NYC! I have 1 year of experience with children ages 7-15 when I was a camp counselor. In that year I also worked along side the parents to meet there standers and gaining their trust in caring for their children. I have been certified for CPR but it has expired so I’ll be retaking a class soon. I also studied coursework in early childhood development. I love getting children into the arts and outdoor activities. I can swim so taking kids to the pool is no issue for hot summer days! Animals are also no issue, I have two cats myself and love all animals. Watching over kids are some of my most cherished memories. I can’t wait to make more with new families:)

I am jumping back into the nanny life after gaining some experience as an Assistant Kindergarten teacher. It was certainly a learning experience. Due to the pandemic, I am not comfortable working in such a crowded environment again. Therefore, working for one family is ideal. I take health safety seriously, and expect the family I work for do the same. I am a creative and respectful woman. I follow instructions well, love structure, but also can improvise in the moment if necessary. I have cared for twins and handled a classroom, so I can foresee undesirable situations and take preventative measures. Multitasking comes easily to me. I have made and enjoyed making homemade baby food. Will do light cleaning pertaining to the infant/toddlers. Being a care giver and teacher is an important role that I enjoy playing in the lives of others.
**I have been CPR & First Aid Certified twice in the past, however it has recently expired and I am willing to obtain them again if requested**

Sasha Leslie
Fort Lauderdale$15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I love babies and children.
As the second oldest of five, I've always been responsible for caring for someone younger than myself. I've worked with children ages 18 months to 12 years as a Spanish teacher for a Montessori school. I've also babysat for friends throughout the years.

My greatest strength is my attitude. I have a strong set of values that include gratitude and loyalty toward employers, receptivity and patience toward children, and compassion toward all people. I balance productivity and playfulness well and believe I'd make a great addition to your family.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Fort Lauderdale, FL

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 Fort Lauderdale can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Fort Lauderdale 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.
