Although I don't have any kids of my own taking care of them is like second nature. I have two amazing nieces the younger just turned 2 years and the older is 10. I helped raised them as if they were my kids which is no wonder the older recently stopped calling me mommy. Outside of my nieces I've worked with infants from 3 months to age 5 and enjoyed every moment of it. I enjoy helping to shape the lives of these little ones by providing a fun, engaging a balanced structure for them.

I took care of three wonderful children that have relocated to Colorado to live. They were exceptional children with great morales and values. My ten years of experience as a nanny has made me reliable, trustworthy , caring, and hardworking.

Sherima L.

Sherima is a fantastic nanny who worked with us full time for 6 months and part time for years. She is loving, dedicated and trustworthy. She is incredibly reliable and we had an amazing experience with her from the week my son was born into his toddlerhood. I would recommend her without any reservations and as a would not know what I would have done without her as a working mom! - Natasha

Ruth M.

Ruth was with me for about 4 years. And honestly I don't know what I would of done without her. She went above and beyond for my family. She was always on time and available when I needed her last minute. Always did extra stuff for me without being asked. She was overall amazing! My family and I moved out of the state and we were sad to let her go. The next family will be lucky to have her! - Karen

Ruth M.

Ruth was an amazing babysitter to my three kids. She helped with my youngest while the eldest were in school. During the summer she took them out for walks and played outside with them all day! She helped my children learn a different language which was amazing! She was extremely flexible - Kate

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

Richmond Hill 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.
