I have been working with children since I can remember. I've nannied for multiple families over the course of 7 years. I have worked for a family for two years full time. They have two beautiful daughters, a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old. While a nanny, I was going to school part time to further my education in Early Childhood Development. Then the family moved to Italy. I made the choice after that to pursue working with children in learning centers. I am EEC certified in infants, toddlers, and preschool. I have also worked with school aged children as well.

Westford$14.28/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I worked as an assisstant teacher in a child care learning center for the past 2 1/2 years before I left for college. I am also the oldest in my neighborhood and out of my 12 cousins. This has allowed me to spend a lot of my time babysitting and helping out families who need childcare.
Shana H.
Westford$14.40/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have a lot of experience with children. I babysat my younger brother for years. I have had the rewarding opportunity of babysitting him from the time he was an infant to 9 years old. Also, I used to work as a gymnastics coach and have worked with children at a wide range of ages. Many families would have their child's birthday party at the gym and so at times I would be responsible for 20+ children with my co-worker. I feel that my experience in babysitting and as a coach/ birthday party hostess has prepared me for a large majority of situations in childcare.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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

Westford 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.
