Angie Hopkins
Albany$15/hr  |  12 yrs experience
My whole life has been revolved around children. When I was in my twenties I started keeping children, and I learned that there is nothing better than watching a child grow and form into a little person with an opinion and a mind that that could go anywhere that child wants it to go. Spending time and instilling goodness in children is what I was made for. Children take to me very naturally. As a matter of fact, I have not met a friend with children yet that their children do not call me in Aunt Angie. I love that because when a child takes a nanny and renames her to an aunt, well that is very special. Because it means that I'm good enough to be family. And family and friends and children and loved ones are everything. Not only am I good nanny but also a wonderful caregiver. I took care of both of my grandmothers. Taking care of my grandmother's and being there when they took their last breath was such a humbling experience for me. It taught me that life and death or seamless. It also taught me to love the ones that are here while you can because once that last breath is gone, it's gone forever. If I had to choose between being a nanny for children or a caregiver to my grandmother's I would probably have to choose the children. I love to listen to children and hear their thoughts, it is amazing. I love to hear their struggles and be able to talk with him about how to handle those struggles in a healthy way. I have dealt with anger issues from children that have lost a parent. That is difficult, but with love and understanding you get through it day by day. There are so many things I've been through with children and grandmothers and sisters I could go on forever. My true love is for people. I love people unconditionally and that goes for children teenagers adults and the elderly. It is complete gratification to know that I can instill goodness in someone or someone else's child. Being a caregiver and a caretaker is my calling. And I am good at it.

Maryjo R.

Maryjo was a very caring nanny to my newborn son. She treated him with love and attention as if he was her own child, and I was able to trust her implicitly with his care. A real bond developed between her and my son Phillip, and it was sad for all of us when her job with us ended. I would recommend her 110% to anyone looking for a loving, trustworthy, hardworking caregiver for their child! - Jeffrey

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Albany, GA

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 Albany can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Albany 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 Georgia?
  • Do you have a Georgia 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.
