My name is Kissy, I used to work in the children's room at the Salem Public Library a long time ago. I babysit through most of high school and college. Over the past few years, I've been working as a project coordinator doing marketing and sales. I really enjoy working with kids, it's probably one of the best jobs I've had that I've actually enjoyed.

My childcare experience began when I was 18 years old in highschool while I volunteered for a full school year in a kindergarten classroom. Through my last year of high school I babysat a five year old boy with bi-polar disorder and I would care for my brother who has a severe head injury. When I went to college I majored in Early Childhood Education where I obtained my license to teach grades Pre-K through grade 2 and I also have my Preschool Lead Teacher license. During my time in college I was a preschool teacher assistant and I nannied for two families. My first family I started with in 2007 and they had twin boys age 3 months old and a daughter who was 5 years old. I nannied for them for 5 years and I keep in contact with them today. Other experiences I have had are being an overnight nanny for teenage boys whose parents traveled for work and caring for their dog. I had become a special education paraprofessional after graduating college in 2012 and unfortunately due to budget cuts, I was laid off. I am currently a manager at a graduate school in Boston.

I have been caring for children, casually and professionally, since the age of twelve. I have worked as a nanny, babysitter, and an aupair overseas. I took a bit of time off to work in the business world, but quickly reaalized that I want to continue my service to children and work with families again. I'm a loving, eco-friendly, compassionate, and a fun woman with a lot of energy. I also have patience and respect, and know that these qualities are the best way to help take care of a child (and in dealing with the family). I am an avaid voluntter in my community, so I have a philanthropic nature, and I also am creative in the arts (always a good thing, as the arts help a child in many ways). I would love for you to be my next family to work with, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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

Salem 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.
