Nanny Nadir"Nadir was a great fit during a pretty turbulent time. He was dependable, compassionate, and prepared. Most importantly, he was always punctual and on schedule. As I had a pretty hectic schedule at the hospital, it was nice to see that he would prioritize showing up 10 minutes early so that I had peace of mind."- Joshua

A little bit about us…I'm a 35 year old single mom with a 2 year old daughter named Harlow. I live with my brother in a townhouse near Western Blvd. and we have 4 cats and a dog named Lady Vader. So you must be chill with pets.

I'm a very eclectic, creative, and strong willed person but I'm all about peace and love. We must vibe well as a group for this to work. I need to trust you! BE REAL WITH ME!!

So please, no drama, no nonsense, only honesty, compassion, and confidence in caring for my little love!

I'm originally from California, been here in Raleigh almost 3 years. I have a strange work schedule because I work 12 hour days 6am-6pm Friday - Sundays.

I'm looking for someone who is responsible, intelligent, quick on their feet, & knows how to handle herself. Someone who speaks spanish and english, who is clean and tidy, loves animals and is a caring, loving and lovable human being with only good intentions. Must have good and verifiable references! Must drive and have valid license. As well as a tax ID and be able to provide me with receipts upon payments. For taxable purposes.

Harlow is chicana and needs to learn spanish slowly with a spanish speaker as I am not fluent and her Chicano father is not in the picture. Her roots are important!

I’m a super chill chic who is down to earth and flexible, but when it comes to my baby I’m very cautious, careful, OCD, & protective! I need you to be too! Ask me any questions & I will ask you many. Thanks for scoping us out! ✌️ & ❤️

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

Raleigh 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.
