A little bit about me…

Hi! My name is Adrianna and I am 26 years old. I have a love for children like no other. I began babysitting for family and friends when I was 12 and fell in love with taking care of children. I attended school at Professional Academies Magnet in the Early Childhood Education program where I obtained all of my DCF trainings and certifications! I am also CPR certified for all ages. I have worked at two daycares in infant through after school classes (12 year olds). Spending time with children, watching them grow, and helping them hit their milestones is one of my favorite things to do! I’m pretty flexible with schedules and absolutely cannot wait to meet you and your family! Hope to hear from you soon!

A little bit about me…

Hello families! As someone who has a passion for child care, I am willing to go above and beyond for your kiddos. I have had experience with babysitting for around 4 years, including children in my family and outside of my family. I am more than happy to prepare meals and clean up around the house, take kids to and from extra curricular, or whatever else you may need. I have quite a passion for reading as well, so I really enjoy reading to/with kids and helping out with homework. I am 19 years old and attend the University of Florida, pursuing a dual degree in Economics and English. Personally, I am organized, patient, and enjoy making things fun! I am typically available most afternoons/nights for outings/ date nights. If you have any questions about me, my experience, or my availability, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hello parents, welcome to my page. I am a 22 year old college graduate, and college math, anatomy, and statistics tutor. I earned my degree in public health and learned ultrasound before deciding a career centered around early childhood and development is my ultimate passion. I am also passionate about other things including animal and human rights, the environment, and helping raise healthy kids. Ways I like to promote healthy living with families I work for include minimizing screen time, outside play whenever possible, healthy cooking, and parenting with scientifically backed principles in mind. I try to reduce stress on the parents as much as possible and bring a calming atmosphere to the homes I work at.

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

Gainesville 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.
