Hi! My name is Katie Resendiz. I'm 17.5 years old.

I have been working with children since the age if 13. I started helping after school at a daycare. I worked at that daycare after school/summers and vacations all the way through high school. I attended college and graduated with an early childhood degree. While in college I watched triplets for one family and a few other infants ( supervising teacher during my student teaching's child and their family friend's baby). After I graduated college I got hired through a nanny agency and have been a full time nanny since 2010. I work with children of all ages and love to be outdoors and active with them. I am looking for a job closer to where we live now because Currently my commute is 1.5 hrs some days with traffic and the agency I work for is mainly Boston area. Please feel free to contact me!

I have been a nanny/babysitter for 9 years, and loved every second of it! I am fun-loving, affectionate, and responsible, and have been described as the best nanny there is. I always work long-term for families, and become like part of the family. I normally work with families with multiple children, but have experience with "only children". I have worked with kids of all ages. With all of my other families, I started taking care of their kids when they were infants, and continued nannying until they went to school, so I have a solid background with a large range of ages. I caught the nannying bug from my mom, who started an in-home childcare service when I was 5, so I was around infants at an early age. I am CPR certified and trained in First Aid, and safety always comes first for me!

I started out as a mothers helper when I was 13 years old out of my love for working with children. Ever since I started I have completely fallen in love with working with children. Throughout the years I have gained a great deal of experience working with children of all ages especially toddlers and infants. I am certified in CPR and have worked with children who have had severe allergies. Most recently last summer, I worked for a family of 5 children from the ages of 3 months to 9 years old. It was one of the best jobs I have had.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Andover, MA

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 in Andover can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Andover 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.
