I am a certified K-8 teacher. I am curently a substitute teacher but I am also looking for more steady work. I have quite a bit of experience working with children ages 5-12, both in and out of a school setting. I have several years experience as a babysitter for children as young as 2 and I grew up taking care of two younger siblings. I have volunteered in elementary school art and library classes for a couple of years, helping children with new projects which help them explore their own creativity. I was a first grade teacher in Maine until moving back to Massachusetts this past summer. I also have some experience working with ESL/ELL students. On a more personal note, I am very creative, I love finding new activities to keep children engaged and active, I enjoy cooking and I am more than qualified to help with any homework.

For nearly 5 years I have been a stay-at-home-mom and nanny. Prior to having my children, ages 4 1/2 and 2, I was a preschool teacher. As much as I loved the classroom setting, I wanted to be home with my daughter to watch her grow. I have nannied for two different families in that time, one with three children ages 0-8 and the other started with one infant, and then added another a couple years later. I am EEC certified, have my associates degree in Early Childhood Education, and over 20 years combined childcare experience. I like to bring humor and fun to the people I'm around. I love art, music, the outdoors, animals, reading/storytelling, history, and science. I am very passionate about figuring out how a child learns and helping them to be the best person they can be and foster a love for learning. I have recently finished my first year of a three year herbalism program, so I have a good grasp on medicinal plants and how to have a healthy body, something else I'm passionate about.

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

Gloucester 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.
