I have two past positions which are relevant to childcare First, when i was 15 I took a position as a live-out nanny to a family of 3. My duties were light housekeeping, preparing meals, organizing activities and outings, assistance with homework, and overnights once a week. A year and a half later I transitioned to a licensed childcare facility,where I was able to gain experience with children ages infant-13. At 17 I was offered the opportunity of leading the Intermediate classroom, which is ages 9-13. During the school year the classroom was only after school hours and during the summer it was full time. I continued at the daycare part-time throughout my four years through college.

I have 6 years of experience in childcare including but not limited to daycare and nannying. While in high school and college I studied early childhood education and psychology which is where I started working for a daycare. I spent 4 years with the day care center as a head teacher creating lesson plans and running classroom activities. While with the center I attended many trainings including CPR/first aid. I then moved onto work with a family who has a nine year old and twins who are now two where I took care of meal prep, cleaning, and caring for the children.

My experience with children has been long term. I first worked in a gym nursery from ages 15 to 17 with children ages 0-12. I was also a summer camp counselor at the same time with children ages 3-7. My senior year of high school I did an internship in a second grade classroom for college credits. I then went to college and got my degree in early childhood education. During the summers I worked at a daycare in my town with infants and children up to the age of four. I have also been a babysitter to dozens of people in my hometown and my college town. I am now pursuing another degree in child and family services and am excited to work with children for the rest of my life.

Hire a babysitter with great references
Gabriela A.

Gabriela is an exceptional nanny, we needed some extra pair of hands for a short period of time and it was by far the best decision we’ve ever made by hiring her. She was great with my little girl and was able to manage her busy schedule and yet keep her safe and entertained. I strongly recommend Gabriela if you need someone responsible, reliable and organized. - Lisa

Gabriela A.

Gabriela babysat for my two kids ages 3 and 5 for the past 3 months on the weekends. She is an amazing babysitter, sweet and kind. She really plays with the kids and give them her full attention. The best babysitter we ever had. Too bad we move to Long Island and now she is far from us. I highly recommend Gabriela. - Anne

Noashmie B.

Noashmie watched my child as I worked over the summer. I gave her chance because she was very well mannered. Over the months of knowing her she is very responsible and never disappointed me once. I only needed a babysitter over the summer if not I would of loved to keep her, my child loved her. - Emily

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

Schenectady 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.
