My name is Emily and I love to play and interact with kids! I am in search of a summer nannying position for the summer before my senior year in college. I am available to start right away! I have previous experience taking care of children and throughly enjoyed the experience. In fact, I am currently studying Elementary Education at Eastern Nazarene College.
I believe in getting down to the child's level and interacting with them. I love crafts and playing outside but also enjoy reading to children and other low key activities. I have experience watching children of varied ages from 1 years old to 11 years old.
I have also had the great opportunity to take care of a little boy from the age of 5 months until he was 2. I have my own car, a clean driving record, and am comfortable with any housekeeping and food prep necessary. I have also been trained in CPR. If my description seems to fit your needs don't hesitate to contact me! Thank you for your time!

I have been babysitting since I was 10 years old. I have worked with many families and children of all ages. My first full time nanny job was for my older sister. She has two young girls now ages 3 and 9. I moved in with her to help watch and take care of the children. My job consisted of me taking the kids to their respective activities. I helped out around the house with feeding the children, doing laundry, and cleaning up around the house, and planing various activities to entertain the children. I have also had experience babysitting for families that have infants as well as multiples.

I've worked at a pre-school/daycare center since i was 17 years old. I started as an assistant and loved working with the kids, I decided to take collage classes to become a teacher so I could be a bigger part in helping and teaching the children everyday. I'm also from a big family I have four younger brothers, that I watched for my mother during the summertime.

I have babysat many times before but my childcare experience is more within my family. I have never worked with children outside my family, but I love children. I have been on my own for a while so cooking, cleaning, and laundry is not a problem.

My past childcare experience was great. I love working with children and caring for them. I worked with a family of 5. There were 3 children and the parents. The children were young when I started. The baby was months old and the other two were 3 years and 5 years. It was an awesome experience and I hope to get the opportunity to do it again.

I am a single mom and have been raising five awesome kids on my own for seven years now. As a teenager I babysat frequently for neighborhood kids and I also took an early childhood development class in high school. Recently I had managed and ran an indoor playland and coordinated and hosted birthday parties of children of all ages. Currently I am a school bus driver for special needs kids. I like my job but find it monotaneous driving the same route every day. I would rather be interacting with kids and doing fun things such as walks in the park, playgrounds, sports, crafts, ect. Just having fun and not sitting inside all day long!

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

Whitman 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.
