I love kids, and the elderly, I love to help people I think god created me to be a help in whatever capacity I find myself in.
Kids are a blessing from the lord and must be treated that way, I like to take care of them make sure they are fed and clean, school work is important in a child’s life and I love to help with that, I like to make them laugh and have fun. I am a mother of one and even though she’s grown she’s still my baby girl, I believe in treating other kids the same just as if they were mine.

I am a career nanny of 6 years turned SAHM of 24 month old twins. I'm very education focused & interactive with children. I'm the type that gets on the floor and rolls around WITH the kids! My children practice Spanish, ASL, and of course English. They also love music & dancing, so we incorporate that into our days as well.

She was always there when I needed her. If there was a last minute job she would do it. She was very good with my child. She treated him like he was her own. She is very trust worthy and reliable. - Mariah

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Gastonia, 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 Gastonia can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Gastonia 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.
