A little bit about me…

Hi! My name is Hadley, I’m 20 years old, and I’m a nursing student at UNCW. I am hoping to be a pediatric nurse practitioner one day because I absolutely love kids! I have babysat / nannied as my full time job for the past 6 years, so I have plenty of experience and references as needed. I have the most experience with ages 2-8, but I have worked with children of all ages, including newborns. I also work as part of the childcare staff for the nursery at First Baptist Church, where I watch groups of 10-12 children and babies at a time during church services. In the past I have also worked as a summer camp counselor, and worked with special needs children specifically as well. I don’t mind providing transportation, picking up/dropping off, preparing meals, going on fun outings, and doing housework! A few things I like to do with the kids I typically watch are play outside, arts and crafts, read books, and play games! I hope to meet some of your little humans soon!

A little bit about me…

I am a young adult, age 22, with around 5 years of experience in caring for children. The children I have cared for have ranged from ages 0-12. Growing up as a member of a large family, first, allowed me to get the full experience of caring for children with such a wide range of ages. My family’s dynamic has had a large impact on my journey in childcare. I have taken my big heart, passion, gentleness, and education and turned it into a career path in childcare. Under my care you will be garunteed safety, love, support and much more for your children.

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

Wilmington 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.
