Stacy W. - Seeking Work in Glen Cove
Stacy W.
Glen Cove$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
When I was 17, I was a summer camp counselor here on Long Island for very small children, ages 2 to 5. That same summer, I was also a bus counselor picking up children from home, ranging in ages from 2 to ten years old. From that job, I was offered a babysitting job on weekend evenings/nights, which I gladly accepted, for a family of 4 ranging in ages 6-11 (including 1 set of twins). I continued babysitting for this family on breaks home from college. In July of 2005, I was hired at Harbor Child Care in Glen Head,New York as a part time child care worker, where I would return each summer and break from college as well. I was lucky to have the experience working with infants as old as 3 months to school age children who were 11 years old. I graduated SUNY Cortland in May 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Education and I also obtained New York State Teacher Certification. I was offered a full time position at Harbor Child Care that summer, as a full time Head Teacher/Caregiver for Infants, where I had a wonderful experience with infants from 3 months to 18 months old. Many babysitting and childcare jobs have come from my time at Harbor Child Care, as I have grown very, very close to some of the children and watched them grow, as I have also grown close with their families! Since January 2009, I have been a graduate student at Adelphi University to have my Master's in Literacy. I then have worked as a substitute teacher for elementary school at schools in different parts of Queens, in hopes to get my foot in the door for a full-time position. I am now teaching PreK full-time, and truly enjoy introducing my five year olds to new information, creating a loving, safe, literacy- rich environment, as well as help prepare them for Kindergarten next year. While I am looking for full-time teaching positions on Long Island and with the New York City Department of Education for September, I am also planning on moving into Manhattan or Queens in the fall as well. I would be willing to work as a nanny full-time in the fall in Manhattan if the opportunity was presented to me, and if teaching jobs continue to be difficult to find. :)

Jess cared for our three children while we were attending a family wedding in New York. She was amazing with them and allowed me peace of mind while I had to be apart from them. She brought fun games, dealt with separation anxiety in my two year old, and did a wonderful job. - Anne

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

Glen Cove 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.
