work here like nanny and I am looking for a job like nanny live in. It's very important to say how much I like kids. My first experience was in Brazil with my own sister. I'm 6 years older than her, so when we were younger, my parents used to go out to work and I used to stay with her. It's funny because we used to get on very well and even being very young, I could take care of her without any big problems. I have also taken care of a girl for one year and a half years. She is my friend's daughter and when she was born, my friend needed to go to work, so, on Saturdays, I helped my friend take care of her. It was a good experience because she was my friend's daughter and we still have contact. I usually see her once or twice a month. I used to spend the entire day with her so I needed to do a lot of things such as giving shower, feeding, etc. During summer or when the weather was good, we used to go to playgrounds, club with swimming pool, etc. and during the winter, we used to watch cartoons and play indoor. At the same time that I was taking care of her, I used to work at a language school. It was nice to work there because I had contact with a lot of kids during the breaks and before the classes started. It was a good time because we followed the American schedule so I could learn a little bit about the American culture. One of my responsibilities was organizing the parties for the kids and during the time the party was happening, I took care of everybody. We had a lot of fun together! I took care here in USA of the 2 girls for 5 months anda I have other experiences too,I would love explain more about this and about me too.

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

Rockville Centre 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.
