Alyssa Hill
Saint Petersburg$15/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Aloha! My name is Alyssa. I am 27 years old, and was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I moved to Florida in 2005 to further my education and opportunities. Over the past years I have been attending the Art Institute of Tampa. Striving to obtain my Bachelors degree in Business & Fine Arts, as well as working as a caregiver when I was not in school. I've recently unenrolled from school and currently reside in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

I have years of experience working as a caregiver! Throughout high school I took early childhood education classes, and was also certified in first aid and CPR. I've also worked for many daycare centers, and families.

In 2009, I was hired to manage a childcare facility at Electra Health Club & Spa in Palmetto, Florida. I worked there until 2013. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the original owners of Electra were forced to close the business and I decided to seek employment elsewhere.

Thankfully I found an amazing nanny job when I moved to Riverview, Florida in 2014. I worked for a family with three boys. They were 1year, 6years, and 9years old. I worked Monday - Friday, typically 50 hours a week. I was required be at work at 6:30am to feed the children, drive them to and from school & practices, care for the baby while older boys were at school, clean the house, do laundry, tutor boys after school, bathe the children, and run errands. I constantly would take the children to various parks, libraries, museums, amusement parks, and beaches. I loved going on adventures with the children, and made each experience educational, and fun!
The family I was working for unfortunately moved out of the state & I had to seek employment elsewhere.

In the fall of 2016 I moved to Miami. I worked with a lovely family and watched their 9month old daughter and 4year old son. The 4year old son had autism. I had experience working with children with disabilities prior to working with their family. I watched their children Monday through Friday f...

Karen K.

Karen is responsible and a super reliable person. She is very professional and she took very good care of my daughter. She was always on time to pick my daughter from school and helped her with her homework. - Pratibha

Dayjaha H.

Dayjaha was very caring and very hands on with the little ones. She was very patient with them but would enforce those boundaries I we discussed together. She was a great communicator and if she wasn't sure or if need reinforcement, she wasn't afraid to ask - I really liked that about her. She was a life saver and I would highly recommend her. - Laura

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

Saint Petersburg 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.
