"I really liked how easy Jenny made it for our family to embrace her into our lives. She had an instant connection with our older daughter. She helped me ran our household but never over stepped. She was really an asset to us. Some of duties were to take care of everything child related and sometimes without asking She would help with keeping our home tidy. She would even cook for us on occasions when our jobs became demanding. I trusted Jenny with our daughters. She was honest. We were really sad to see her go but our needs for childcare changed and we had no choice."

Im a mommy trying to help other moms lol I’m very funny and out going, I love making people smile and helping to the best of my ability…having my own child opened my eyes to realizing motherhood is the greatest blessing ever given to me..I tend to be a big kid having fun with the kiddos but that’s the best part about it all! I love uplifting and letting children know they are worth it and so smart and can do anything they put their minds to… I taught my 6 month old to say dada and certain signs already! You and your child will definitely benefit from me:) ❤️

Hi! My name is Renae and I absolutely adore children and have spent my whole life as a babysitter and tutor for my younger cousins so taking care of children comes second nature to me.

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

Poughkeepsie 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.
