Longwood$15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am an adventurous mom looking for work in something I love, now that my youngest is in grade school. I am environmentally conscious and a nature lover. I have a small rabbit breeding and chicken egg business. I have used cloth diapers and have potty trained toddlers. I use attachment/natural parenting with my own children and would feel comfortable showing the same attention to children under my care. I believe in a positive, nurturing environment. I would enjoy taking the children for walks or to the park to explore. I am college educated and would feel comfortable assisting in homework or homeschool studies. Before having children, I worked in a preschool. I also have recent experience assisting in the childcare room at my church and as a personal care aide to an elderly woman. I am a practicing Catholic but would not discuss religion or faith with your children unless you are comfortable with or requested it. I am allergic to cats and some dogs. Comfortable w/ farmwork

my name is Victoria. I was born and raised in the Altamonte area. I have always had the best supportive family in my childhood years. I'm a dedicated and hardworking person. I have always been the type to go beyond expectations. I have an organized method of doing work. I have worked with children since I started babysitting at 14 years of age. I have experience as a nanny for 6 years. I love working with all ages. I have worked with children ranging from 1-5 to 6-12 to children with disabilities to ADHD and so forth. I believe communication is very important between nanny and parent so we can achieve a happy home and understanding and a happy child. I love working with children and I love being able to make a difference in their lives. I also am willing to take children to/from school, games, classes, etc. I can help with homework/projects. Childhood years are the most important years in life. I am hoping to find a family like the other families I had been so fortunate to come across to work for. You may just also just want a few hours to yourself in the afternoon or an evening out which I will be able to assist you with. I look forward to hearing from you.

I grew up babysitting as a part-time job and staying at home with young children to assist neighborhood families. I've also provided help for a family with small children while studying in college. The family sometimes would require that I stay overnight or for a long weekend, depending on the their needs. I love children of all ages and watching them learn and grow. My background is in health education, so I love opportunities to learn and look for "learning" moments. I would love to emphasize healthy eating habits, excellent personal hygiene and a positive self-esteem for your children.

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

Longwood 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.
