I have experience with all ages of children, and work best with infants and toddlers. I have house-sat, baby-sat, kept the house clean, and dog-sat since I was 12 years old, and I've always enjoyed it. I like taking care of people and making sure things are tidy. I am pretty flexible with hours and days!

Veronica Valdes
Prairieville$15/hr  |  6 yrs experience
 I am a former Elementary School teacher with over 12 years of experience in the classroom and the mom of 6-year-old boy and girl twins! I took time off from teaching to care for my children, and my child-rearing experience has enhanced my talents in prioritization as I managed multiple schedules and provided around -the -clock care for my twins all by myself. 
 I am looking to leverage my skills and educational background to make a positive impact on your kid's life. I am very patient with children and love helping them learn while also having fun.
Safety is my utmost concern and I closely monitor children at all times, I understand good nutritional choices and carefully prepare meals that are healthy for kids but that they also love to eat.   I am eager to accept a new opportunity and make a positive difference in your day- to- day household activities. The chance to offer more insight into my qualifications would be most welcome.

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.
