Chartamia Turner
Takoma Park$14/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Greetings! My name is Chartamia, but I go by Shay. Prior to relocating, I was a full-time nanny for two amazing twins for three years that are now 7yrs old. I also worked as a part-time nanny twice a week for an awesome little guy until he went to kindergarten. As both a full time and part-time nanny, duties included meal prep/light cooking/light housework/potty training/arts and crafts/reading and fun field trips to the park, zoo, library, beach, and museums. My experience extends beyond nannying, I've worked as a nursery teacher caring for ages infant-5yrs old and multiple summers as camp counselor. I'm truly invested in the growth of small minds. I center my care and activities to cater to the child's developmental needs. I believe learning can be taught in many areas, rather it's in the classroom, studio, and or individual time. My goal is to help young minds reach their greatest potential in a nurturing and stimulating environment.

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

Takoma Park 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.
