I am a mama with an empty nest. For as long as I can remember I've been mothering children; whether it's been siblings, cousins, or for family friends. I was blessed with one biological child, who is my youngest, as well as three other children I took in during their adolescence who needed a mommy. I have been nannying and caring for children for well over 23 years. I have volunteered for various charities, church camps, and I've worked in daycare centers. Also in between families I have worked in various fields that made sure that I was able to be a hands-on mom as much as possible. I have worked with children with various disabilities both physical and emotional or mental. I've cared for preemies, multiples, newborns all the way through high school. While my children were in high school I worked at their high school, volunteered on the athletic booster club, and coached cheerleading. I also have extensive medical knowledge as I completed all of the pre-nursing requisites and someday I hope to return when I feel the time is right.
Over the last 5 years I've cared for children in three families; from a family of one child to a family of five children. I have extensive knowledge of breastmilk care and feeding as well as making homemade baby food. With a recent family, in addition to being their nanny, my role encompassed being a personal assistant and family manager. I have gone on vacations with the family, overnights, along with handling some business needs and maintaining the home. Many of the families I have cared for for any amount of time; even as far back as in the 1990's, I still remain in contact with on a regular basis.
I'm hoping to find another wonderful family to create a new bond with and begin making memories as I assist with the care, growth, and development of their children.
I pride myself on establishing an “other mother” type bond with the children and a team /co-parenting relationship with parents. I give my heart and soul in the care I provide and my references would love to tell you this is true.

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

Plant City 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.
