Taylor Morrissey
Ocala$12/hr  |  10 yrs experience
As the oldest of five siblings, I have great experience with young kid’s, and love to help them to learn and grow. I’m currently in school studying Ministerial leadership at SouthEastern University. My long term goal is to work with young adults in a church setting, and also to be a certified sailing instructor. I love being on the water. My first job was lifeguarding at the YMCA, and then this past year I taught sailing on a live aboard 40-70 foot schooners in the keys. Covid brought me back home to Ocala with my family. I’ve since felt called to study theology more and am enjoying growing in Gods Word. I’m available Monday Wednesday and Fridays, as well as weekends. My preference is not to work Sundays as I spend time with my family and go to church.

My ideal family would be needing me to fill in the gaps. I have been homeschooled my whole life and am comfortable tutoring math. I would be happy to assist school aged children while parents work, and keep them on track.

Kayla A.

Kayla was a great babysitter. She helped take care of Gustavito when I had a last minute summer session class to teach in May. A coteacher if mine introduced me to her. She took care of him and made sure he was never bored while I was at work. It was only for a month but I would definitely hire her again to take care of Gustavo - Phillip

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

Ocala 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.
