Neisha Newell
Shawnee Estates, Bowling Green$10/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hello! My name is Neisha and I adore working with children. I was recently the supervisor for an After-School program working with kids from Kindergarten to 6th grade. All age groups bring something fun and interesting! This experience has allowed me to really think outside of the box to engage children in activities and homework! When I'm not working I am enjoying outside activities or hanging with my cat, Moo, who my kids like to hear about. I am happy to transition to working with kids one-on-one! I love animals, as well, so it would be awesome to work with your pet too!

I very much hope to hear from you soon!

Hello! My name is Katherine Nutt and I am 20 years old. I am a friendly, energetic person and I love to engage kids in all types of activities. I started babysitting for family friends when I was 14, but I have taken care of cousins of all ages for many years before then. I have experience in being a nanny for newborns- 8 year olds (2-3 weeks in the summer the past 5 summers) and am currently doing light after school duties for the same family. I would love to find another family that I can work into my schedule! Message me if you are interested and I can let you know my specific availability.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Kentucky

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.

Kentucky 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 Kentucky?
  • Do you have a Kentucky 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.
