I need a babysitter that can provide services when needed. For example, on my anniversary or my husband and I birthday, and date night. I don’t mind bringing my daughter over your house but I require that the house is clean and organized for my child. What is required for me to pick a person to look after my child? The babysitter has to have patience, understanding, and empathy. She has to have some experience working with kids. Must have a clear background (no criminal history). Attentive and loves all kids like they are their own. Must be reliable and timely. (Can not be late) Must pay attention to my child not just sit her in front of the tv. You can do some activities with her and talk to her. The individual can not be abusive or hit my child. You can put her in time out or direct her to something helpful. Must provides meals and snacks while she is in your care. If I pick you please tell me, in advance, that you have something to do so I can get another babysitter in your place. (Must give 24 hr notice) If the babysitter decides to teach my child she has to teach her about reading and math (she is doing adding and subtracting). Plus, she can read some books. Now, onto my child, her name is Destiny. She is kind, sweet, funny, loving, smart, and silly. She loves games and loves to play. She loves her daddy and me.

Breonna took very good care of my 9 year old son while I worked weekends. She took him and his friends to basketball games, arcades, and even tutored my son during the week. His grades rose and she was a good influence on him. Being a single father, she really helped me out with my son. - Gerald

Breonna was fantastic with my twin girls! They're 6 and in the first grade. Breonna worked full time with us since they were babies. She taught them a lot and took them to outings and activities. She only works part for us now, but I highly recommend her if you have young children. Because she is also a teacher, she really takes the time to get to know your kids and make them feel special! - Alyson

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

Covington 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.
