A little bit about me…

Hi, my name is Becky. I am 48 years old and have always loved children. I have cared for my own 3 sons, and have also been a nanny for others. The needs of my current nanny family have changed recently and so I am now looking for a new family to love. I believe the most important needs of a child are love/affection, kindness, patience, stability, feeling safe, one-on one interaction with the child, and security. I have a background check and I am CPR certified as well as first aid. I can usually see the needs of a child and can connect with them easily. I am very patient and have a lot of love to give. I like to have a “G” rated environment when I am with children, because I am “G” rated as well in my own personal life. I like to teach children to love, be honest, kind, and respectful to everyone. I am used to multitasking a family of four children, including housekeeping. Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Idaho

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Idaho 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 Idaho?
  • Do you have a Idaho 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.
