A little bit about me…

I have a CNA license (Certified Nurse Assistant) and have been working with elderly people in all kinds of situations for four years. It requires ultra-responsibility and reliability, good judgement, genuine helpfulness, a cheerful attitude, and lots of hands-on personal care (dressing, diaper-changing, assistance with pull-ups, preparing meals, handwashing, health hygiene...) Along with TONS of kindness and patience!
[ Worked with with top Triangle retirement community -- required a flawless criminal background check, clean driving record, drug tests, TB tests, excellent health.]
But, due to natural losses, it's becoming too sad. Looking for change!

I love children. Especially imaginative, lively and curious ones!
Have assembled a lot of high-quality, classic books, toys, and activities to bring!
An experienced homeschooler, I really enjoy reading with young ones, introducing middle ones to good literature, and tutoring older ones. (SAT Prep? Essay writing? Early start can be fun!)

A little bit about me…

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!! =)

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.
