Anna Gordon
Parkdale, Fort Myers$15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am a mother of 4 adults and grandmother of 5 growing grandchildren. I have been babysitting for over 5 decades. I specialized in special education with a minor in art. I was a substitute teacher for kindergarten, first, second and third-grade levels and also the severely profound including and not limited to mental retardation, autism and troubled children. I feel that at this early stage of fundamentals, it is crucial that children are feed and nurtured an excellent beginning. At this early stage in life children are like sponges soaking up all that they hear and see; therefore, it is imperative to guide them correctly and give them a proper head start before they start learning from the village (school, church, relatives, neighbors, etc.) I enjoy watching them and figuring out their personalities. Given the chance to love your children as I love my own will bring peace to you knowing that your children are in safe and in excellent hands. I look forward to hearing from you.

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

Fort Myers 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.
