A little bit about me…

Hello blessings my name is Santa Soribel Mateo I have worked for 3 years with children in a private nursery in the preschool classroom I love my job I love children although I still do not have one for me, it gives me peace of mind working with them and helps me feel less sad. Because I don't have babies, I feel like they are my children. The reason why I want to work as a nanny is to find an extra income since I help my mother. I have met several people who have recommended this job to me. They say it's comfortable and good. I don't smoke, I drink wine sometimes, I like going to the movies, being at home resting my days off, going to the park, reading a book, I'm very calm, I live alone in a room, which I want to raise money to have my own apartment , I love God above all things, from time to time When I go to church because right now I don't have a car I want to buy one, I respect every religion and every person besides I am an aunt of 15 nephews of various ages

A little bit about me…

I would be a great nanny for your family because of my work history,I have a substitute teachers certificate,my C.N.A. certification, I work with special needs children as well. I love to do arts and crafts with the children and keep them busy. I would be outside with them on those beautiful days. I will also cook meals, prepare snacks and help clean would be on my list because to me this is what a nanny job is, to help the parents while they are working so they can come home, relax and just enjoy time with there children and not worry about cooking,cleaning or preparing for the next day.

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.
