Framingham$20/hr  |  30 yrs experience
I am a Career Nanny with over 25 yrs of childcare/teaching experience, recently working the last 6 yrs as a MA certified Driving Instructor. I live in N. Framingham, drive a 2018 Outlander. I have always worked with young children either in daycare or schools, and lots of Nannying right up until I started my own family. As much as I love being a Driving Instructor, I truly miss the experiences of spending my days with a little bitty buddy who is young enough that I can experience the many milestones they go through, walking, talking,-Oh those gummy smiles! I have done a LOT of childcare /teaching/Nannying and I am looking for an infant/ young toddler so I can start early and stay longterm. I owned an operated a CPR Instruction business. I ran it for 16 years before passing it on to my niece. I am very loving, caring, nurturing, attentive and know how to multitask and take initiative. The BEST thing about me is that I am a Mom to an amazing beautiful a 14-year-old daughter of my own.

Hire a babysitter with great references
Keiara F.

Keiara was always willing to do much more than she was asked to do which shows she really loved being around children. My 3 year old loved having her around; anyone who has her as an employee has found themselves a keeper! - Grecia

Thembeka M.

She's very creative, big on arts and crafts. The kids adjusted to having her around hastily. She was always on time, full of extraordinary ideas to keep the kids entertained and away from screens. kept the children's area tidy and organized. - Lora

Jacki T.

Jacki has been the nanny for my twins since they were two months old. She took really good care of them in fact my twins always look forward to seeing her. I can vouch that she is really a great nanny and that my children are in good hands with her. - Aileen

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Massachusetts

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.

Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts?
  • Do you have a Massachusetts 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.
