I am currently taken off from college my study was in the PreMed major and I am also fluent in three languages English, Spanish, and Portuguese. For the past years, I have cared for the children of parents in need of a trustworthy and committed babysitter. I personally love children, which is the reason why I have a passion in becoming a PA.

A little bit about me…

Hello, My name is Laurel, and I'm 22 years old. I have babysat for many different families over the years, but most of the child care experience I've gained has been through working as a preschool teacher. My experience in childcare started when I started volunteering with children at age 12, but I took on the role as a Sunday school Director In 2018. This position has taught me how to work with a variety of different age groups, from infant to middle school. I learned how to engage children in activities and lessons and keep/enforce consistent rules and guidelines. In 2020 I began working as preschool teacher where I worked with children 18 months old - 5 years old.

I love working with children, and creating a consistent structure that they can't build confidence in, while also following their lead and creating fun memorable experiences for them. I love to help children learn and grow whether through their development stages or in their own interests and hobbies.

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

Melbourne 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.
