Jaymi W. - Seeking Work in Bozeman
Jaymi W.

We can’t recommend Jaymi highly enough. She watched our daughter for about a year and was just incredible. She was so engaging, responsible, thoughtful, and fun. She went above and beyond to ensure our daughter was cared for, was learning new things, and was always helping out with things like meal prep and keeping the house organized. We adore jaymi and any family would be lucky to have her! - Kaitlin

Jaymi is an incredible nanny! She was amazing with our daughter - engaging, kind and loving. She always had fun activities planned and my daughter loved spending time with her. She is extremely reliable and was never late. We were heartbroken when she moved out of state and couldn’t care for our daughter anymore. I can’t recommend her enough! - Nicole

Marisol is extremely kind and patient person. She was helping me some days for 6 months before I left Montana. Thanks to Marisol my son is fully bilingual now because she helped him a lot with the school and the words in Spanish. I am extremely grateful to have met her. - Licel

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Montana

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.

Montana 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 Montana?
  • Do you have a Montana 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.
