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!

Hello! I have 15+ years of childcare experience. I started with babysitting, then started daycare work. For the past 3 years, it's been nanny work for 2 wonderful families. Now that all kiddos are in school, I am searching for more work. I am CPR and first aide certified. I believe in a Montessori approach. I'm big on imagination, outdoor activities, reading, art projects, science experiments, and other educational crafts. Part-time positions, or a full time position are welcome. I am available for school pick up, and am well acquainted with the juggle of housework, cooking, and childcare/ entertainment. I provide outings to The Duluth Children's Museum, Aquarium, playgrounds, picnics, and special events. I am a mother to a 2 year old (almost 3), who comes along, during nannying shifts. My experience with nannying, ranges from 3 infants, to 6 children, ages 2 to 7. Please feel free to message, with any questions! Thanks for reading!

Lauren C.

I loved having Lauren as the Nanny for my little family. She had an amazing relationship with my children and was always very professional and caring. I always felt like Lauren truly cared and enjoyed being with my children. I would hire her again on the spot, she's so easy to work with and patient. - Rebecca

Gabriella D.

She’s very attentive, loving and responsible. I had her watch my baby at only 2 weeks old. I was very confident leaving my child with her. She knows exactly what to do in an emergency, and she has all her first aid/cpr training. I still use her weekly to watch my child, as well as weekends. She is by far the best babysitter I’ve had. - Allyson

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.
