I’m Thembeka and have been an au pair for the past two years for an amazing host family. Before coming to the states I was a caregiver at a local crèche in my town caring for children from 6 months - 1years I had 4 kids in my group and my responsibilities were feeding, reading to them, planning educational activities for the day etc. I came to the states and became an au pair I was caring for kids aged 2,5 and 8 years I know I had my hands full but it was a great experience and learned a lot. Amongst taking care of them, duties included meal preparation, activities during the day (craft, biking, baking, board games etc) laundry, cleaning up after their meals, ensuring safety. My overall experience has made me not only more responsible, patient and flexible but also mature. I take my nephew sometimes for the weekend to help my sister out. I am compassionate and nurturing person who loves traveling, nature and art.

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

Shrewsbury 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.
