I have had lovely experiences with the families that I have worked for. It's nice getting to know other families and see how they interact with each other. And being able to be apart of a child's growth is also a great thing.

I had been with the same family since 2005. Once the children became of age my services were no longer needed. I served as the Personal Assistant/House Manager/Nanny in the home. It was a live in position for the first few years and live out the last year. In the home it was my responsibility to prepare meals, take the children to and from school and activities, schedule appointments, assist with homework, plan and engage in activities outside the home for the children (play dates, sports, ETC.) as well as many other duties.

We love Tasha and have stayed in touch. She was wonderful and reliable and the kids love her. For w years ago on her first day I asked her to get a play date with a smart child from school and that child has been my son’s best friend for four years. She’s great at making connections and finding activities for the kids. - Lauren

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

Jamaica 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.
