Hey everyone! I’m Grace. I’m currently a freshman in college attending Westfield State University, studying Elementary Education. I am available part time, and mainly week nights due to my college-student schedule. However, most weekends starting from Friday after 11am, I am available anytime. I have worked and cared for children consistently for the past 5 years of my life. It’s my passion! Babysitting was my first job, and it’s still my favorite. I took Child Development for three years during high school. During the summer, I work as a full time swim instructor, teaching all ages. I was a competitive dancer for 15 years and would help with the littles at my dance studio as well. I’m great with following instructions and helping however I can. Message me and I would be happy to get to know you more!:)

I love working with kids, as I feel I can be a kid at heart ! I grew up the oldest so I always looked after my siblings and cousins giving me lots of experience with kids. I started doing babysitting when I was about 15 and I loved working with all the different kids.

I worked at a daycare when I was 16 for only a few months. I enjoyed the activities we would play after the students got out of school, such as capture the flag, soccer, and the monkey bars. Soon after I left the daycare, I started to baby sit for family of 2. Soon, the family grew to 3, and I would baby sit for them when the infant was still fairly small. The family knew I was attending college out of state, but would ask me to call them when home for the weekend because the kids loved when I watched them.

Hi, my name is Amanda. I am 30 years old, and a mother of two children. I have a 5-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy. I am both CPR and first aid certified. I have been working with children since I was teenager with my first job as a mother's helper for newborn twin girls. Once their mother went back to work I took care of them until they went off to 1st grade. I continued to do childcare for different families. I went to HCC and took early childhood growth and development. From there I worked in daycare for 2 years, both in the infant room and preschool. I enjoyed the daycare but I love working with children in a home setting more. I became a full-time nanny working for 2 different families over the past 7 years. I am currently working for a family that is moving soon. I am looking to start with a new family in Nov or after. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you! -Amanda

Jehimy is an amazing care taker. I am super protective and cautious with whom I trust my daughter with.

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

Westfield 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.
