Heather Zeller-Lopez
Milan, New Orleans$20/hr  |  6 yrs experience
Hi my name isn’t Heather and I Am from New Orleans. I am moving to Vermont . with my two children ages 5 and 15 and am looking to continue my nanny career. I have worked with newborn to age 12. I have worked with special needs (autism spectrum and Down’s syndrome mosaic). I have also worked with multiples but years ago. I went to school for early childhood education and decided being a nanny and working one on one with children was a better fit for me than the classroom setting. I did work as a two year old teacher and this is what got me to my decision of just being a nanny. I love kids and love teaching. I have been working in the nanny field for well over ten years. Some families I am still in contact with. I did light housekeeping on top of the childcare duties. I kept a journal and also sent photos during the day so the family could keep up with the goings on of their child(ren). I have lots to say but not much say so please feel free to ask me any and all questions.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Louisiana

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.

Louisiana 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 Louisiana?
  • Do you have a Louisiana 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.
