Hi! I have loved children forever- growing up with 3 siblings much younger than me, I always helped out around the house and with the girls. My senior year of high school I volunteered in two kindergarten classrooms and fell in love with teaching. I am currently a senior in college, taking a gap year to save money, in elementary education and special education. I have my associates in early childhood education. I love hiking, playing sports like soccer, going to the gym and being active, reading, cooking, and being outside! I have experience working with families, babysitting, working in school environments as an aftercare staff member and summer camp thematic teacher, where I created lessons and implemented them for children ages 4-9. We did things such as make slime, create marble runs, make marshmallows using sunlight, and more. I love being hands on, doing fun activities and include the children in things such as cooking!

Hi! My name is Katherine, but you can call me Kate! I have extensive experience with children, beginning as a camp counselor, then teaching musical theatre, to finally becoming a full time nanny. I love interacting with children of all ages and creating activities that will engage their developing minds. I have experience working with children who have handicaps and special needs, and I am trained in ABA therapy techniques, though not formally (yet). I have worked mostly as a full time nanny, working from 7:00 am- 5:00 pm, making healthy meals and snacks, going on trips to the library, park, museums, etc., tackling bath time and nap time, and taking the kiddos to extracuricular activities. I love children of all ages and am excellent at following specific instructions provided by parents. I communicate very efficiently with my employers, and I take constructive criticism very well, always looking for ways to improve my performance. I hope I can be a great fit for your family and help you accomplish your household goals!

My name is Laura! I am 26 years old. I started nannying at 14 years old. It was my first summer job. I started at The Lake George Club in Lake George, NY. I continued to nanny every summer and in between college semesters for multiple families. I have done traveling/overnight/housesitting nannying as well. I spent one summer babysitting a newborn. I also have experience with down syndrome children. I am not looking to be a full time nanny anymore but looking to work part time- nanny/babysit/date nights/after school. My schedule is flexible and I can be last minute if needed. I have always loved children and quickly make a warm, comfortable connection with them. I am happy to do whatever they like to do- crafts, cooking, movies, being outdoors, sports, etc. I have a happy and friendly disposition and an up for anything attitude.

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

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

Saratoga Springs 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.
