In addition to raising three children, I have twenty years of childcare experience. My oldest child was born with Down Syndrome and is now a thriving, independent, wonderful young man. My two beautiful and accomplished daughters complete our family and together, we have made a world of difference in instilling appreciation for the uniqueness that each child and individual brings. I consider myself tireless, dedicated and exceedingly patient. Do values matter? They define me! My commitment and genuine love of children has taken me into the homes and hearts of too many families to count over my years of providing childcare. Each family has become a part of my own and added to my life’s experiences. I am CPR and first aid certified, actively pursue trainings and education in many areas of child development and have worked closely with early intervention, public and private schools. I would welcome an opportunity to provide you with more specifics about my background and qualifications and especially excited about introducing you to the many families with whom I have had the pleasure of helping and guiding.

I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old. I come from a large family and I am one of the oldest, so I was always babysitting the younger kids. I previously worked in a Daycare where I was the Teacher's Aide for the toddler room. I also occasionally worked with the infants and preschoolers. I am CPR and First Aid certified and I am currently working towards getting teacher certified.

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

Wakefield 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.
