Hi! I am a college student studying Human Rights who is moving to the Boston area soon and is looking for employment. I am interested in pursuing a career in International Human Rights Law and I love being outdoors, hiking, skateboarding, walking my dog, anything politics related, traveling, and meeting new people! I love working with children and I think they are such a blessing in the way they can restore our childlike wonder to this world. If you are looking for an ambitious, self-motivated, self-disciplined, detail-oriented, creative, silly, and energetic nanny, I am the right fit for you! I would love to help your children with homework, do art projects with them, help meal prep, do some light housekeeping, and help them get outdoors and enjoy all Boston has to offer! I worked as a camp counselor for three years, so I have a range of activities + skillsets to keep children entertained, happy, and healthy, in body and mind.

I have experience babysitting children of ages ranging from newborn to 12 years old, and I absolutely love children! I am graduating from high school in June from a school right outside of Boston, and I am looking for some summer work before I go off to college in the fall. I can cook, clean, help with homework, and teach them basic piano or singing! I can give references if needed, or interview in person. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.

I started as a babysitter in middle school for neighborhood families. Since high school I have sat for a numerous amount of families. I began to nanny the summer after my freshman year of high school for a family from 8am to 7pm Monday-Friday. I was responsiblie for organizing eduational trips, playdates, and tennis, swim and horseback riding lessons. I additionally cooked meals and did some light cleaning around the home. Apart from this family, I often sat for a family of 3 girls from the age range of 2 years-9 years. If you wish to have more information, I would be more than happy to answer questions about my experience.

I was a summer nanny for three boys two summers ago. They were 4, 9 and 12. Very active boys! We went swimming almost everyday. I tutored them as well as had an arts and crafts lesson prepared everyday. Ranging from guitar lessons, to cooking and baking. I made breakfast and lunch for the boys, took them on errands: football practice, for example. We took field trips to the skate park, regular parks, and library.

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.

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

Brookline 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.
