Hi, I am a substitute teacher that has taken care of many kids at once, which is hard to say in the application! I would love to take care of yours. I love to travel, I recently came back from 3 months in Belgium and Ireland, and I love to read, especially dramatically out loud to children, because I am a bit of a child at heart myself. I love NYC with all my heart, and I can't wait to take your kid to all my favorite places. I like going to the Met Museum in the 1800s exhibit and pretending I'm a princess. I have a fondness for little girls because I too, was once a little girl.

I like to interact with the children on an educational and fun level. To me, life is a learning experience and every moment should be taken as an opportunity to learn. From asking what color is the apple or how many fingers am I holding up, I try to make the child feel like they are learning but in a fun-filled manner. Many people have called me "Nanny McPhee" or Mary Poppins. I just think that when it comes to children, I am able to relate to them because I understand the things they enjoy. I always try to do things in a positive way and always explain why something is done so that they better understand. I recently graduated from Army Bootcamp and look forward to returning back to babysitting. I hope I am a great candidate to take care of your children!

I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old (now 24) for multiple families in the area I lived and grew up in. The ages have ranged from infancy to preteens. Responsibilities have included driving children to activities and picking them up, overnight stays while parents are away, helping with homework, cooking meals, playing games with the children, taking messages and coordinating with people coming to/calling the house, and anything else upon request! I enjoy children of all ages and have great references.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Rahway, NJ

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 Rahway can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Rahway 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 New Jersey?
  • Do you have a New Jersey 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.
