Katie Gunderson
Rochester$20/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hi! My name is Katie and I would love to be considered for your nanny position. I have been babysitting for different families for over 15 years and have been a part time nanny for two different families.

My fiancé and I are moving to Rochester in June for him to begin his residency at Mayo.

I am currently a corporate event planner in Atlanta, Georgia. While working full time, I have also been a part time nanny for a family for the past two years. The hardest part about leaving Atlanta will be leaving the family I nanny for. We have become a part of their family and we love the relationship we have created with them. I would love to find another family that I can nanny for in Rochester.

In addition to being a nanny for your kids, I am also happy to assist in a household management/ assistant role. I enjoy assisting with meal preparation, errands, housekeeping, caring for the pet and anything else you may need.

I look forward to speaking with you soon!
Megan Dawson
Winona$15/hr  |  6 yrs experience
I graduated from Winona State with my Bachelor of Social Work in 2017. The past 5 years I have worked at Legacies in Winona, MN as a Designated Coordinator. I’ve worked with kids and adults of all ages and abilities, primarily those with trauma histories, mental health diagnoses, learning disabilities, cognitive delays, etc. It is a high paced job and I’ve gotten to work with many unique individuals. I have decided to go back to school for my Master’s in Teaching, K-6. The program is flexible in order to allow graduates to remain working full-time. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors on the river, hiking, etc. I also love to travel, but will not be doing so at this time due to COVID-19. I have seen first-hand the hardships that so many families are experiencing during COVID-19 and I hope to be of great support to your family.
Sydni Miles
Mankato$10/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hi, my name is Sydni and I am excited to start working as a nanny! I am attending MNSU as a sophomore this year and hope to graduate with a degree in the future! My goal as a nanny is to protect, teach, and care for your kids (and of course have a little fun)! In my free time I enjoy hikes, art, sports, and spending time with my family and friends. I started working with children at my local church volunteering with infants and toddlers. I am also the oldest of three kids. My youngest brother is on the ASD, and being his big sister I was often responsible for him. He teaches me many life lessons along with how to work with those who view things differently. I have yet to have an official nanny job but am an experienced babysitter! I am comfortable with pets, housekeeping, and also own a reliable car. Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Minnesota

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Minnesota 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 Minnesota?
  • Do you have a Minnesota 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.
