Hire a babysitter with great references
Hannah H.

Hannah was an awesome member of my team- I am no longer employed with her but we still keep in touch and always will. She was a great team player and was my right hand at the counter. She was always willing to help out with anything I needed. She did a lot to take the pressure off of me as a manager. Hannah has a great personality and is trustworthy. I truly enjoyed working with her. - Heather

Julie D.

Our son loved Julie! She always made sure he had a good time. We have a nanny cam and I would watch (because we had bad experiences with previous nannies) and she would make sure he was bathed, fed, safe, and entertained. - Karrie

Nesha P.

She is very compassionate, and personable. I never felt for one second like she did not do her job to the fullest. She is definitely the best at what she does and I’d recommend her to anyone. - Monay

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Mississippi

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.

Mississippi 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 Mississippi?
  • Do you have a Mississippi 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.
