Amber A. - Seeking Work in Waxhaw
Amber A.
Waxhaw$20/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hi! I'm Amber & I'm 31 years old with over 15 years of experience working with children. I am available for full/part time nannying in the Waxhaw/Charlotte/Fort Mill area. I have had the privilege of working as a nanny, sitter, teacher & camp counselor ranging in age from newborns up to early teens & I have no preference regarding age groups. I have three younger siblings, am the oldest of more than 30 cousins and simply enjoy working with kids. I obtained my BA in Psychology/Sociology with my minor in Family Studies in 2005. My courses consisted of classes such as Child Growth & Development, Marriage & Family Counseling, Psychology of Adolescence, etc. A little about me: My friends consider me a fun-loving, easy-going person who is trustworthy, honest, spontaneous & loves to live and eat healthy! In my free time I enjoy reading, swimming, photography, bike riding, traveling, movie nights, Scrabble, picnics, boating, the beach, my church and much more. I believe a child should explore the outdoors & learn about the world instead of staying inside attached to their video games or computers. I love the English language and adore writing, expanding vocabulary, spelling, grammar, etc so if your child needs tutoring in those areas I would be more than happy to help! I believe in the importance of healthy eating & would strive to keep your children fed with healthy choices like whole grains/fresh fruits/veggies instead of junk food. I would be more than happy to do overnites as well because hard-working parents deserve date nights to themselves or just simply a night off. If you would like my exact hours of availability I will be happy to talk with you about them since they were difficult to describe on the availability chart. I am also open to short notice jobs if a sudden need were to arise. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me by email at & I will respond promptly. Best wishes in your search!

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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

Waxhaw 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.
