A little bit about me…

I’m a 23 year old student working on my second degree in education grades k-6, with an extension of 7-9 for social studies. I am also a freelance photographer. I currently work for a family with two wonderful boys ages two and 5, but will be in need of a job once school resumes as they will both be attending early childhood day care and first grade! I am passionate about caring for children and it comes very naturally to me and always has since a young age. I’m a Buffalo NY native, and know surrounding areas very well. I am CPR and AED certified. I enjoy anything Disney, I love pets, and take pride in my creative skills. This year, I’ve constructed and gathered many crafts/activities for 5-year-old L and his schoolmate J as I assisted them during the week in virtual learning from September-June. I’m very well versed in kindergarten material and would love to offer any type of educational assistance for your children!

Buffalo, NY

< 1 year experience

A little bit about me…

My name is Leandra. I'm 24 years old and I've been a flight attendant for American Airlines for almost 3 years. Due to covid, I have taken a 2 year leave of absence from the airlines. I have spent countless time with unaccompanied children, taking care of them and keeping them entertained on flights, making sure they get to their destination's enjoyably and safely. Being around children gives me so much joy and I've always loved being in their presence. I'm starting my journey in pursuing a career in nannying and I'm looking forward to finding a family to care for that's a good match.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Buffalo, NY

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 Buffalo can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Buffalo 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 York?
  • Do you have a New York 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.
