Growing up my great grandmother fostered over 300 children and adopted several. The love for children has continued to run 4 generations strong and I pray that one day I'll be blessed enough to make it 5. I believe that children should be exposed to new things everyday and that nothing in life is out of their reach. I am a ballet dancer, soccer player, artist, sister, daughter and great friend. I love sign language and anything that introduces children to new ways of life. I have worked with children from new born to 16 years old, and I've had the pleasure of being an assistant in a special needs center and I absolutely loved it. I believe little people are who we shape them to be and without the proper guidance they can't grow. Safety is always a main priority when I'm with the children but I don't mind getting in the dirt with them. Children are given to us as a gift and it's our job to give them back to society as productive members...well it all starts at home!! =)

East Durham, Durham$12/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hello there, I’m a 23-year-old female who comes from a family of child care/educators. I’ve worked as a personal family nanny, summer camp advisor, volunteered as a teachers aid, and now currently a caregiver for special needs youth and adults. I have a certificate degree in teacher assisting, certification for CPR, experience with special needs, drivers license, and my own vehicle.I enjoy fun activities, both indoor and outdoor, that will keep the youth engaged, active, and learning, all while character building. I also assist in meal preparation, house keeping, and just overall lending a hand where needed. I believe that kids should be kids, and sometimes adults should be too 😁.

Working at a daycare gave me experiences that I would for sure put into practice with your kids. From being patient, to keep calm to show them respect, or being creative to teach them new things. One of those things being Spanish, since it was my first language. Always put the kids as a priority. One thing that is a priority to me is potty training, and making sure I help with things they want to do like extra school curriculum activities just because I did things like that when in school and I know how important it is. Projects, crafts, panting, and coloring are some of the things I will do with the keys to help them learn and engage more. I will always try to be the best I can; nice, fun, caring and loving for sure. No matter what I will always make sure I am fair to each kid and treat them with respect
Faith Winner
Durham$18/hr  |  1 yrs experience
My name is Faith Winner. I am 23- year-old senior at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am a psychology major with a concentration in Pre-law. I have a lot experience working with children ages 4-14 years old. I have baby sat several family friends as well as helped at my grandmother’s daycare. For the last 8 years I have also worked in every area of summer camp management. From camp counselor at the YMCA to Summer Activity Director for large church establishment such at World Overcomers Church. In all my years of working with children the most important thing I have learned is that every child is different and one must get to know each child is different and one must get to know each organically in order to discover what child truly needs to be the best form of themselves! I’ve always had a passion to help children and I believe I can do that in the capacity of a nanny.

Mersadez M.

It’s my pleasure to recommend Mersadez Mitchell to be an employee . Her and I worked together diligently for almost a year, and she has shown nothing but good characteristics. I was also sad to see her go . - Amari

Kim watched my two kids (2 and 4) for almost a year (2-3 days per week). They both enjoyed playing with her - my son would play legos and superheroes with her and daughter loved reading with her. - Erin

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Durham, NC

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 in Durham can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Durham 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.
