I have been working with children since I was 10. I started babysitting my brother and then began to watch other children in my church. I worked for a day care for a year and then began working for the family that owned the day care watching their two children after school. I then became a camp counselor for a summer. I worked another job for a few years then became a nanny of a family of 5. I was with them for four years and they had another child will I was with them. I am available Monday-Friday.

I come from a large Catholic family where I am the oldest of 5. As far back as I can remember I have been changing diapers and helping take care of my younger siblings. We were all home-schooled so I spent just about all my time with them, which at this point in my life I am so grateful for :)I was so much older with an 8 year gap between myself and the 2ND oldest of us all that I was able to really watch and understand the way my mother was raising her family, and how it worked. Her faith in God and positive reinforcement are just a few of the things that I took with me. Most recently I worked for a family in Durham with a 4-month-old, and I worked for them until he was a year and 6 months.(I stopped working for them 02/2012 when I moved)We had tummy time, we would read, listen to music and singalongs, go outside for walks or just to play in the yard. We would go over our numbers, colors and shapes on a daily basis. We watched television shows that where suggested by his parents.

I have been married for 26 years, and I'm the mother of two grown daughters, ages 23 and 20 years old, both of whom I home-schooled until their graduation. I have at least 20 years of experience baby-sitting in my home, for kids ages infant to 4 years old. I also have experience in being a therapeutic foster parent for kids, ages 6-18. Some of the kids were troubled or had behavioral problems. They lived in my home on a daily basis, 24/7, until they were adopted. I've kept up to five foster kids at one time, plus my two children. I have cared for a total of 18 foster kids, over a two and a half year period. I can stay in your home overnight occasionally caring for your children, and also can provide care for children over the summer. References are available upon request. I look forward to working with you and your family.

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

Morganton 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.
