I'm currently 30 years old. I love working with children because they just give off so much positive energy! I am an outgoing and positive person. I care about others and am very nurturing. I love to be outside. I have a lot of experience with children from being an in home nanny to working with grade school children in a summer camp setting. They always have the most unique explanations to life. I am able to cook and clean for your children. Children take to me very well, especially babies because I'm so calm and relaxed. I love to read and teach new things! I have been able to effectively meet the needs of every family I have worked with. Some background work history on myself is that I worked overnights for the City of Springfield at the Police Department. I was a E911 call-taker/dispatcher and also for the Department of Defense. Due to my extensive training in the emergency field, I am able to remain calm during tense situations.

Springfield$17.14/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I babysat 3 children from the age of 5 to 12 for about 5 years on and off mostly in the summertime. Two of the children had ADHD so I have experience with high-energy children! I then worked at a summer-camp as a lifeguard and counselor for about 3 years working with children of all ages from first grade until ninth grade. I also worked in a child care center as an assistant teacher in the infant/toddler classroom for about a year focusing mostly on the infants.

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

Springfield 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.
