Hello! Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about me. My name is Katie. I am 25 years old. I am outgoing, funny, silly and nurturing. I am a great friend, so I've been told and a lot of fun to be around. I an originally from New Hampshire but moved to Massachusetts in 2008. I graduated from high school in 2005 and then went on to college and majored in Early Childhood Education where I graduated with my associates degree in 2008. Most recently, I am serving as a nanny for a family with two girls ages 6 and 2. I was actually the older child’s preschool teacher and the family recruited me from the daycare I was teaching at to become a fulltime provider for there youngest and part time for the older child as she is in school for half of the day. We go for walks daily and spend a lot of time at parks and playing outside. We read a lot and everyday is a new adventure to find new exciting activities. I have been with this family for 2 years 3 months . I attend all the girls extra curricular with them and we stay very busy during our “free-time”. We have a lot of fun and I really enjoy my time with them. Prior to working with this family I taught preschool at a daycare in Winchester full- time as well as worked for the YMCA of Woburn’s after school program. I really loved both jobs but when the offer came to work with such an awesome family one on one I simply couldn’t pass on the offer. I was the lead teacher in the preschool class and greatly enjoyed creating hands on curriculums and trying to incorporate as much out door activity as possible, 18 children ages 3-4 have a whole lot of energy to burn. Part time 2 afternoons a week I worked with middle school children at the after school program. That was a lot of fun, although sometimes challenging the good most definitely out weighed the bad and I learned a lot from those kids. My experience ranges from infants to age 17. I believe children learn through playing so I am all about teaching them fun new things. Before moving to Massachusetts I worked in a kindergarten classroom that I eventually took over for a short time in Manchester NH. I absolutely loved working with this age group. I began in this class room as an assistant while working my way through school but I eventually ended up taking over the class as my own after I received my degree. I was responsible for teaching the required curriculum which I also tweaked with some extra fun activities and projects. I believe children learn through hands on engaging projects so I incorporated these activities as much as possible. We also did a great deal of outdoor activities that range from nature walks, to scavenger hunts, ect. While in high school I interned in a 2nd grade classroom at a local school as a work study program. I was fortune it enough to shadow and work with my own 2nd grade teacher. This experience was very enriching and truly ignited my desire to work with children. I was responsible for one on one work with children who were behind, correcting papers, bringing the children to the library, playground, and bathrooms daily. I also helped put together the following weeks curriculum in order. I had the honor of doing this for 2 years, and loved every minute of it. I have experience with multiples, behavioral issues and special needs. I drive a safe, reliable 2003 Chrysler Concorde so I do have my own form of transportation. I have a great resume and raving references that I encourage you to call. In my spare time, I greatly enjoy doing home crafts and exploring with cooking new and exciting things. I am also kind of a book worm and in my free time there is a very good chance u will catch me with my face in a book. I am open for any cooking, cleaning and any other errands that need to be done through out the day as well. Just leave me a daily list and I'd be happy to check things off as I go. I am drug free. I do not drink and I do not smoke. I am open for any background checks and drug tests. I am looking for a live out position. Thank you so much for taking the time to read a little bit about me, even though it kind of turned into a short novel. :) I have references but please email me back for their contact information. Have a great day! Hope to hear from you soon.

She was incredibly helpful in terms of school work and activities it was evident that she genuinely cared for my daughter.

Really sweet girl who cares genuinely for children. - Joseph C.

Kanise was very attentive to our child and was very good with communication. Whether informing us of a diaper change or developmental improvement, her expertise was valued. With previous experience at a daycare, Kanise’s skill sets showed through and instilled confidence in us that our daughter was in great hands! - Ian

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

Burlington 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.
