Hello everyone! My name is Kelsey Hands and I am 21 years old. I have been going to school majoring in Early Childhood Education for the past year in hopes of one day becoming a teacher. I started babysitting when I was nine years old just caring for family members or kids around the neighborhood. Which slowly turned into me becoming more of a nanny enduring more responsibilites on my plate. I have worked with many different families, they were all wonderful and helped solidify that working with children is my passion. Some of my duties as a babysitter/nanny was picking and dropping off the kids for school and school events or extra curriecular activies. I have watched kids that ranged from all different ages. Some of the activies I have the kids do are playing outside, walks, arts and crafts (painting, drawing, educational games), swimming, and cooking all meals. I am a very flexible person so I have even stayed the night if needed by the parents. Thank you for reading!

My name is Jennifer :) I have over ten years experience as a nanny, in addition to helping to care for my three beautiful nieces and nephew since birth, and whilst they are growing up. I have experience caring for children from newborn to late teens.

I am a certified children's yoga instructor, I love to cook and happy to help with meal preparation, and also any household chores or errands, as required. I love animals, so any family pets who also need care/feeding/walking is welcomed!

I am very patient and kind, and I am experienced in working with children with learning difficulties and special needs. I am comfortable administering medications and monitoring health conditions. I can help with home-schooling and homework also - I have two college degrees with good grades.

Of course, I am comfortable with a full background check, and you will find me to be squeaky clean! I am very flexible with hours, and can work nights, weekends, holidays, overtime, and travel if required :)

My goal as a Nanny is to care for, guide, instruct, protect, and teach children. I am willing to do housekeeping that includes helping children clean their rooms, clean play area, and laundry. If I had to describe myself in five adjectives I would say that I am caring, loving, committed, responsible, and diligent.

AnnMarie K.

She was great at managing our two boys and taking care of things when we were away. Our boys liked having her around and she made sure they did their chores, homework, and helped around the house as she directed. We had total confidence that our home and kids were in good hands with AnnMarie there managing everything. - Mark

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

Sarasota 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.
