Hi guys I’m Amirah,
I’m a upcoming Senior at NCAT and I go to school for computer engineering. I’m the oldest of 4, so children younger than me had always been plus. I love children, because they love and take pride in you so easily. I’ve nannied for a family for 2 years (their daughters name was Amira) and have babysat for the same family for about 4 even. Even when I come home and. Nicole will ask me to watch her boys. I’m active and outgoing so keeping your child going until sunset is no problem!

Hendersonville$18/hr  |  4 yrs experience
I have worked with children in schools, camps, and shelter/group homes for over 20 years. I'm currently employed at the YWCA in Asheville & teach swim lessons/ lifeguard when it fits into my schedule. For the past 14 years, I have been a nanny and caregiver for children ages newborn to 14 years old. I fill the day full of activities, reading, outings, and play dates. I prepare all meals required during the day/evening, do light housework, bathing and provide homework assistance. I also run errands and grocery shop when needed. I really enjoy working with families to help raise their children and I feel honored to help in their development. My past and current experiences working with children in a variety of settings have really made me a wonderful nanny.

With the ability to keep children safe and active in educational and/or fun activities I can reassure that I am fit for the task. I will put your child(ren) before myself when they are in my care. If there are any specific preferences or needs parents and guardians decide to make, I will always be sure to respect and thrive with it. I have my high school diploma along with safe transportation and am looking for an interesting job that will help me overtime with additional schooling. On the plus side I love to bond and make friends with the families that are willing to give me a chance to help them stay secure and calm when away from their younger members. I can also do different tasks if needed for the elderly and animals if they are also in the house hold.

Alyson F.

Alyson worked hard with each child to achieve his/ her goals. She got to know each of them individually to use their interests, strengths, and weaknesses in helping them learn. The children enjoyed getting to work with her. - Amber

Sarah really took good care of my child. When I dropped him off in the morning he reached for Sarah and that really made me feel good. He really felt safe with her. - Ceairra

Whitney B.

My children absolutely loved her. She is very engaging with them. Her time is their time, no iPhone, just attention to them regarding games, homework, etc.....They didn't even want us to come home. I would absolutely recommend Whitney!!! She is also very trustworthy, which was very important to me and my husband. - Nancy

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in North Carolina

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.

North Carolina 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 North Carolina?
  • Do you have a North Carolina 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.
