I am currently studying at NCSU, and am majoring in Accounting. I graduated from Cape Fear High School in 2017, and was my class’ valedictorian. As of right now, I work in a bakery part time while attending school. Growing up I had to look after my brothers (I have 3 younger brothers), so I would consider myself more than capable of handling rambunctious kids. I also worked as a private tutor while in high school, so if needed I can tutor your kids too. I’m available all summer long!

Dakota Miller
Raleigh$15/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Hello, my name is Dakota. I am an 19 year-old girl with a passion for children and childcare.
Ever since I was old enough to take care of myself I loved helping my parents and other family members out with younger children. I have 2 younger siblings that I have spent a lot of time watching and helping out with and have babysat for families with younger children outside of family.
I started babysitting when I was 16 for a family with 2 children, one age 6 and the other age 4. They were children with special needs, so it took a bit more work on my part but I was completely up to working with them and they turned out to be some of the sweetest kids I've ever met, even if they were a bit rowdy sometimes
I have experience with children 5 months and up, but the main age group I took care of was 1-7 years.
If you have any more questions, please dont hesitate to contact me. I am willing to answer anything you need to know to help ensure your comfort and the safety of your children.

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.
