I babysit ages 0-month-old - 13 years old. I can cook, clean, walk pets/pet sit, help with homework and can also drive! I'm interested in taking kids to parks/entertainment places, walk dogs to parks, etc. I have a daughter who was born January 2019. Ideally I would like her to come with me to work but if not I can make arrangements.

Hi families! I'm Stefany and I'm from Colombia. I came to the United States to work as an Au Pair two years ago. Being an Au Pair gave me a total of 4,500 hours of experience working in the United States. During these two years I worked with two families; the first family was living close to Boston and I was taking care of three kids (a baby boy who was 3 months old and two girls who were 4 and 7 years old), the second family was living close to Washington D.C. and I was taking care of identical twin boys who were 4 months old by the time I started taking care of them. Being an Au Pair gave me two years of experience working in the United States with a total of 4,500 hours of experience. Also, I have five years of experience working in Colombia with newborns and children up to 7 years old. I'm responsible, organized, smart, patient, punctual, energetic, hardworking, humble, positive and non-smoker. Safety is my top priority. I speak three languages (Spanish, English and French). I'm still working on my French level! I have a valid driver's license. I'm First Aid and CPR certified. I'm really good in following instructions and I always have a good attitude towards my job.

I do not have any "on paper" nanning experience, but when it comes to taking care of children I have tons. I am only 24 years of age but am second oldest of 9! I have watched my brothers and sister growing up on many occasions and children of family friends as well. Now that we are all growing up we have children of our own that I also help out a lot with. I myself have two children. My son Deven is 3 years old going on 30 and my daughter Mya is 9months, born the day after Christmas!! I love children and when I started babysitting as a young girl and grew into a mother myself, I have learned to do everything from giving baths, changing diapers, and making bottles to playing games, helping out with homework, and so much more. I have a natural ability to make kids happy and although I have never worked as a teacher or a nanny I think I'd make a great one!!

I have cared for 3 different families, one family was two children, a boy who was 7 and a girl who was 9. I was with them 40 hours a week and i took them everywhere. We had a lot of fun. The second family was 3 chidlren who I have been with as needed since each child was an infant, the oldest is now 8 years old! I am currently a nanny for a family of 3 children ages 3, 4, and 6. I have been with them for 2 years for about 25 hours per week. However I am looking for a full-time position due to the fact that I am graduating college Dec. 15th. All of the families were a lot of fun!

I was a nanny/babysitter for 8 years for a family of 2 children (single mom home). I watched them from ages 3-13, until they didn't need a f/t sitter. Where she was a single mom, I would have them a lot of overnights as well as daytime. I prepared meals, helped with school work, bathed, got them to and from school and to sporting games/practices. I have years of experience with children as I come from a large family with lots of cousins. I always wanted to be a school teacher, just never went back to school to pursue it. I also took care of a little girl (her mom was my previous office manager), I watched her from the time she was 3 until about 7, I would watch her for an occasional date night for her parents.

I started when I was a senior in high school babysitting my neighbor's two children who were 2 and 5. Within three months I began also babysitting her niece who was 8. I stayed working for this family for a little over two years until I moved for college. I helped the children with homework, chores, did many arts and crafts, reading, meal prep and travel (appointments, to fairs and museums). During my first year of college I met a wonderful family through my mom who had one daughter. The family took me in as a live-in nanny immediately after talking to my previous employer. I cared for the little girl from 2 weeks until her 4th birthday when I moved back home and took on a new job as a personal care assistant for a disabled elderly woman. As a live-in nanny I spent many nights caring for child, bottle prep, diaper change, baths, nap time, reading, arts and crafts, meal prep, potty training, household chores, errands,travel with family as nanny, take child to museums, library, and appointments. I also have CPR and First Aid training.

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

Dracut 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.
