"Melinda was really professional and put together when we first met. She was super nice and sweet and my youngest really liked her right away :). It was obvious she truly loved children and enjoyed teaching them. Very organized, I got daily updates with pictures on how my child was doing throughout the day. I really loved that! Set easy to talk to and we would spend some time just chatting when I came to pick up my son. I always knew he was safe abs cares for when he was in her care!"

A little bit about me…

Hello! I am a beauty school student who typically works in retail during the busy holiday season! I am looking to become a child-care provider because I have been helping my sister with her kids for years! The day to day struggle of being a parent for her as a single mom was a real one! It took a long time to figure out where we could all really help her out. In the end it made me most sense to have me live with her during this difficult time! I got lots of hands of experience of infant and toddler care during this time! I ended up staying with her for around a year to bring up her 2 year old at the time, and help care for the new baby also! When I left Lily and Bentley they were set up for success as I taught my sister meal prepping, and how to schedule house work into her busy schedule. To this day I'm still her emergency contact when things get a bit messy! However they are getting to be older now and my sister has mastered being a mom, so I'm not needed as much!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Indiana

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.

Indiana 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 Indiana?
  • Do you have a Indiana 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.
