I babysat for multiple families throughout my high school years. I have also been involved with camps and after-school programs. I am currently a nanny for a family in Short Hills for over two years, where I gained a lot of my experience which will carry over to the next family that I work for. I took care of daily household chores, helped the kids with their homework, and most importantly, I was someone they could always go to; I gained their trust, and gained a very close relationship with them. Unfortunately, my boss lost her job, so she recently told me they need to make cut backs and if she is home, she would need to let go of me. She emphasized how upset she was having to make this decision, especially because the younger daughter has a lot of behavioral issues and I work really well with her. As much as it saddens me as well, I know I will continue to stay in touch with the family and it's nice to look back on how much I was involved in their lives, and helped them become the young ladies they are growing to be.

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

Westfield 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.
