I got my Bachelor’s degree of science in Family and Consumer Sciences in 2017, majoring in family & child development. I am 24, outgoing, love an active lifestyle. Have experience with children of all ages, ethnicities, and cultural diverse backgrounds. I would say my strongest qualities are my honesty, my vibrancy, my dedication to my work, my initiative, and my drive, and my faith. I have two golden retrievers and one rescue kitten; I am comfortable with pets. In addition I worked at a prestigious private school in Austin, TX, May 2017 - March 2018. I coached cheerleading & tumbling to athletes ages 18 months-18 years January 2018-April 2019. I worked at a cheer gym in college station as an after school provider with children ages 4-11, and happy to send my resume! Looking to relocate from Boston to Austin no later than February 2020.

Shaquilla’s Bio

I am a mother of two beautiful boys. I have been in child care for 11 years. I work and have worked with all different age groups starting from newborn to 11 years old and find a different joy in each. My goal while working with families is to leave a little piece of me instilled in every child. My love for the field comes from watching the way children learn play and explore and being able to teach them something new while doing it. I am CPR, First Aid for children and adults and EEC Certified. Also have experience working with special needs children and multiples.

Being with kids brings so much joy out of life. Kids allow you to continueto learn more about life.

Since middle school I’ve been a camp counselor for kids the ages of 5 - 15. I’ve nannied for 13 years for my teachers, church families, friends and my own family members.

It feels great to know that you can make a change in children’s lives and I will always want to make positive change.

Boston$30/hr  |  3 yrs experience
I am a mom of one, my daughter is almost 9 years old. I am from Boston, Ma, grew up in the Dorchester and Roxbury area most of my life and for a short time in Norwood, Ma. I have been nannying family/friends children since I was old enough. My first experience was with my niece when I was about 10 years old she was a new born. I have done weekend and nights for families while I was in high school. As I gotten older I had to start working a full time job which is in healthcare at a hospital in Boston to support my family. However, my daughter is older now and I want to start back into nannying and helping families out.

Commonwealth, Boston$21/hr  |  4 yrs experience
I love children and working with them. I have previously worked for many different families, caring for children (newborn to school-aged). I received a certificate for the Early Childhood Development program offered at BHCC. Every child is unique and the care they receive should be too. I strive to make great memories for the children and help them continue to learn and explore.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Lillie started with us when my daughter was 12 weeks old. She has a calm demeanor and my daughter responded well to that. She was very good about following my instructions and sticking to a nap schedule. Lillie is a great babysitter and would highly recommend. - Malorie

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Boston, 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 Boston can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Boston 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.
