Hi! I am an energetic nanny who loves working with children. I have years of experience with all ages and families. My husband and I are new to the area and I just left my last nanny job, a family I had been with for three years. I enjoy children of all ages, but have the most experience with early childhood. I enjoy cooking, spending time outdoors, playing piano, and traveling.

I'm a patient, kind, and loving 19 year old. I have been caring for children for 3 years. I am patient while they learn getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and eating, etc. I am compassionate and caring when they are sick. I do not mind changing those messy diapers. I pride myself on keeping a clean and safe place for them to play. I volunteer with my local volunteer fire department because I like to help those in need. I also provide a weekly rate verse an hourly rate.

Lots! I am a mother with a 30 and a 26 year old, and a beautiful grandson! I have taken care of plenty of their friends throughout the years as well. Sleepovers, parties, homework, after school activities, meals, sickness. You name it. I have experience in the classroom from preschool to middle school. In college I studied child development and elementary education. For 7 years I taught children ages 3 to 18 about making healthy lifestyle choices. I am extremely health-minded and believe in the "whole" picture of living life. We are spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional beings. We need the balance!

She is great with kids. My children love her and ask about her all the time. She is very caring and attentive to what’s going on. She’s very responsible. Chelsea was also very aware and careful of my child’s food allergies. We would definitely have her babysit again. - Ashley

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

New Bern 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.
