Hi! I am 24 years old and have been babysitting since I was in middle school. I have experience working with children ages 2-14 from past babysitting jobs, summer camps, academic programs, and previous work environments. After graduating college in 2017, I worked for 2 years as a research assistant for children with autism and their family members. I currently teach English to non-native speaking children part-time. I love interacting with kids, and am especially passionate about getting them outdoors and using their imagination! I currently teach in the early mornings, and am looking to connect with a family looking for a nanny for the late mornings/afternoons. I am looking forward to speaking with you, and potentially meeting your family!

I have 3 children that are grown and 2 have already graduated and 1 is in college now. My husband has started college again, now getting his MA/DOC. at age 50. I am trying to save money to start back in school to get my BA. I'm 2 yrs. away from having that goal achieved. Because of these things and us being middle aged. I wanted to do something fun when I am a Nanny for a family. I teach and play. My 1st and foremost is to make sure the children are having fun safely and are depending on how many children there are has a lot to do with how I'll approach what games are played and what teaching games are played during play-time, quiet time, nap time, lunch time, ect. Obviously, I would want to know what the parents rules, lists are and go by that first.

I started babysitting children at the young age of 12. That is when I realized how much I enjoyed children. My first job at 16 years old was working with kids in a daycare, working with children six months to 12 years old. After high school, I attended college in Orlando and worked in a grocery store for four years. After returning to the area I decided that I wanted to work with children again. Ive worked camps at local elementary schools. I have had many great experiences nannying, I was a live in with a wonderful family in Toronto for six months and was able to travel with them. I still work for them about two days week. After moving back from Toronto in September I started working at a preschool in the area. I am currently working at the preschool but am looking for a better job opportunity. I want to help the family I nanny for as much as possible, so am more than happy to cook, run errands, help the children with homework, and to also entertain them by outside and indoor activities. I have a vehicle and would be more than happy to drive your child/children to and from school and to wherever else they may need to go. My availability is Monday through Friday but would be more than happy to work occasional weekends if needed. I have quite a few families who need date nights, overnights etc. so I am only looking for a full time family at this point. Please message me with any questions and I will be more than happy to answer them. I do have references and will give you their contact information upon request.

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

Palm Harbor 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.
