Scarsdale$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hello! I am Catarina, I'm 26 years old and I'm from Brazil. I'm a currently au pair in Scarsdale and I take care of 2 sweet girls, 8 and 11yo. I have experience with kids all ages. My first experience with children's was when my 2 nieces were born, I used to help my sisters with them; since feeding, changing diapers and putting them to bed. My second experience it was with my cousin's child's. They live in Columbia, MD and my cousin asked me to come to help them, once his wife needed to get back to work and there was no one to watch their kids. So I took care of Nico and Sofia for about 10months then I went back to Brazil. Last year I came back as an au pair and I took care of a teenager, she was 11. I stayed with them for over a year and then I moved to this family that I am with now. My au pair program is going to end soon, so I'm looking for a live in nanny position that can starts in Dec/ Jan or Feb. It can be live out as well. I'm a very caring person, reliable, friendly, responsible, trustworthy, honest, very calm, flexible and efficient. I really enjoy crafts, baking and cooking. I know how to make amazing cakes and I would be very happy in making them in special occasion. I love being outside in contact with the nature, I like go for a walk, biking, rolling skating and stuff like that. I'm a very healthy person, my meals are always very healthy and I try to make the kids eat healthy meals as well. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll be glad in answer it. Thank you for reading my profile! Best Regards, Catarina

Jess cared for our three children while we were attending a family wedding in New York. She was amazing with them and allowed me peace of mind while I had to be apart from them. She brought fun games, dealt with separation anxiety in my two year old, and did a wonderful job. - Anne

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

Scarsdale 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.
