I have always loved working with children and began working as a mothers helper as young as I possibly could to fulfill this love. Since 10 years old when I began to be a mothers helper, I have worked in preschools, childcare programs, clinical therapeutic programs, early intervention programs, and schools both in the U.S. and Central and South America. My passion for working with children has led me to a Psychology major at Wheaton College, focusing on the child clinical population. Through internships, research, and jobs, I have been able to gain a lot of hands on experience working with children and truly enjoy spending time playing, laughing, helping, and offering guidance to children. This year I am doing an honors thesis investigating the effects of a mindfulness awareness intervention for children ages 7-12 with emotional and behavior challenges in an after-school program and I just completed leading a four week, 8-session mindfulness class. This experience allowed me to deepen my teaching and leading skills with children. I learned how to teach children skills to regulate their emotions and manage challenging situations through fun, interactive, and child friendly activities. I will be teaching a similar class for the Wheaton College Education Department in the coming weeks in first grade public school classroom. On a personal note, I love to swim and play at the beach, I am a very loving person who truly cares about the wellbeing of others and helping children feel comfortable and happy. I enjoy cooking and creating and working on projects with children. While I am very fun, energetic, and silly, I am a very responsible person who knows when to draw appropriate limits.

I have been babysitting kids for about nine years now. I have babysat children from age 4 to 13 years old. I got my babysitting certificate by taking a week long course when I was 13. Last Summer I babysat twins every Monday and Wednesday from 7am to 4pm. I try to keep things exciting and do different, fun activities as much as possible. I have brought children to the local state park, to the playground, soccer fields, movies and to my house to play in the pool.

I've been working with children and families for 7 years. I have my bachelors degree in the field of child life (working with children therapeutically) and am a certified child life specialist. I am also EEC lead preschool and infant toddler certified as well as first aid and CPR certified and Director II certified to run and operate a childcare facility.

I have a 9 year old sister who I have been babysitting since she was born. I have also babysat many of my cousins while growing up. The most children I have babysat at one time is 4 from ages 2-9. I love playing and being creative with kids. I also have experience with troubled adolscents in a group home setting as well as elders with Developmental Disabilities. I currently work at a residential school for high school age students with behavioral issues. It is challenging but I have gained a lot of patience and skills that would be neccessary in becoming a nanny.

My name is Nicole. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old. I am EEC certified for infants through school age. I have worked with infants up through school aged children in private and public child care settings since 2008. I taught preschool in a public setting from 2010 through 2015. I love having fun and helping people. There is nothing more satisfying then seeing a child's expression when they have finally accomplished something on their own that they have been learning and working on.

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

Norton 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.
