I have been taking care of my own siblings since I was old enough to walk. From the age of 11, I was the only baby sitter used by my family. In seventh grade I began working in youth group with three- to four-year-old children. Upon graduation from high school I continued to volunteer in the church nursery. I also have worked as a daycare teacher with a class of 20 2 1/2 year old children. I recently finished student teaching with first grade students.

I grew up in a family that fostered infants and toddlers for 4 years. I began babysitting when I was 13 and have been around children my whole life. I worked at a day care center as a teachers' aide in the pre-K classroom primarily, and in the Kindergarten room as needed. I also was a nanny for a family with three boys for more than 6 years. I started with this family when their youngest was 3 months old and the older boys were preteens. I also have 4 children of my own, ages 20, 15, 12 and 7, so I have more than 25 years' experience caring for children of all ages.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Sykesville, MD

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 Sykesville can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Sykesville 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 Maryland?
  • Do you have a Maryland 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.
