Hi! i’m a recent grad of Waltham High School, upcoming freshman at Framingham State University. Growing up in a big family, I’ve always loved babysitting children. In Florida on visits, I would watch over my little cousins, ages 1-8. I love being someone kids can look up to, and being a helping and loving hand when needed. I always prioritize the kids over myself when watching over them, and I make sure they’re in bed by an appropriate time set by their parents. Overall, I would love to be given the opportunity, and take care of your child. Thank you! xo

Kristina L.
Waltham$12.72/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have over 8 years of experience having worked with kids of different ages (I am as comfortable working with newborns as I am with teens), first in Ukraine and for the last two years here in Boston as au pair. I am not looking just to help you babysit your kids but also educate them, play with them, help develop their imagination by engaging them in creative activities - painting, dancing, singing. During my school years I have been on basketball and running teams, as well as taking art and dance classes, and I will be happy to share my skills with the kids. I am responsible, hardworking, detail oriented, organized, loving, upbeat, honest and happy person. I love children and I have always been surrounded by children; I've been taking care of my younger brothers, often looked after my mother's friend's daughter; when in high school, I have been working as a substitute teacher for elementary grade kids. When in college, I've worked as a basketball and latin dance couch in summer camps for foster children. I have a car and I am a very careful and experienced driver and can help pick up/drop off your kids to school or extracurricular activities.

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

Waltham 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.
