My friends and family commonly refer to me as "super nanny.” I like being independent and started a babysitting business when I was fourteen starting on my block. I created my own marketing materials and distributed throughout my neighborhood. Since then I have continued to nanny for all types of families and children either part-time or full-time. I have worked with the intellectually impaired, children with ADHD, and children with speech and behavioral issues. I have worked with children ages ranging from newborns to teens. I have had to learn to understand and meet the needs of different parent’s that have different philosophy’s on children rearing and management. I have developed good communication skills to deal with and resolve conflicts. With all my jobs, I have had to come up with new ways of entertaining all age groups of children. I have also had to cook and prepare meals, clean up after, and deal with all different types of messes and sickness for the children I have nannied for. I enjoy taking responsibility for parents most treasured assets and I have built up confidence in my abilities to manage children independently. My job takes a lot of responsibility and has developed my skills in communication, management, multi-tasking, crisis resolution, and medical training. I have excellent writing skills and am in the process of getting my children’s book published. In addition I possess an in-depth knowledge of computer skills. I recently graduated from SUNY New Paltz (Summa Cum Laude) with a B.A. In Communication Disorders and a minor in Linguistics. I will be attending graduate school at Adelphi University this fall to get my M.S. In Speech-Language Pathology. I would like to work with children in the school system as a Speech-Language Pathologist upon graduation. On a side note I also love music (I have been playing piano for almost 12 years, have taken singing lessons for 7 years, and have dabbled with guitar). I also enjoy acting (I have been in numerous school plays) and don’t mind being silly for children. I would describe myself as an individual who is outgoing, hardworking, dependable, funny, eager to learn and grow professionally. Although babysitting has been my primary job, I have a great interest in learning more about different types of occupations. The reason I chose speech language pathology as a profession is because I love to work with people and languages are very interesting to me. Besides speech pathology I have a great interest in pursuing more information about film, musical arts, and performing arts.

Jeline is awesome. I couldn’t describe her any other way. Fun, exciting, heart on her sleeve gal. She’s helped me with my son for almost 4 years now (he’s 3, special needs) and he is head over heels for her. He cries when she’s walking towards the door to leave! That on its own tell me that the bond she formed with him is special. She’s great, believe me. - Jessica

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

Huntington 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.
