Hello! I am a college student studying Early Childhood development and childhood education and history. I am very energetic and a very outdoorsy person. When your children are with me, playing is what it’s all about!. My approach to learning is though play, I tend to do activities with children that would be categorized as Montessori/Waldorf method. I am all about getting messy, I believe this allows them to fully enjoy the experience including all 5 senses.

I am very loving and patient, I feel that there is no need to rush your kids as they are experiencing play and involving theirselves in experimenting in the world around them. I try my best to facilitate as much as I can, installing and reassuring their confidence. My views on handling frustration. I am all about getting down to you child’s level and asking them either way they are feeling or choosing to act the way they are acting or taking some time to cool down in the cool down chair or spot for them to reflect.

I am fun loving and caring person. I love to watch and take care of children, it’s just something about watching them learn about all the things around them with such shock. I am in the Army Reserve, so I do have some basic medical training.

Hello! I am currently a student at Baylor University, but taking a gap semester this fall for an internship in Syracuse! I am looking to nanny and would love to help with online learning if needed. I have spent two full summers as a summer camp counselor in the mountains of North Carolina, where I worked with girls and boys aged 7-15. I love being silly and creative, playing sports, making art projects, and exploring the outdoors! I hope to help you and your kids transition back to school this fall, and also have lots of fun together!

My name is Jade and I’m 21 years old. I have 7 years of child care experience. I’ve worked in a few homes with multiple children living in each house. I also use to have a job working as a swim instructor for ages 6 months - 8 years old. I also was a professional dancer growing up, dancing at the movement box dance studio. And from there as I got older I started to assist in dance classes For the younger groups! Currently I’m working part time at best western at the fairgrounds as a front desk clerk and also part time modeling. I’ve been modeling 3 years now and travel back and forth from NYC to do shows etc. it’s not something that would interfere with my job as I typically work my modeling gigs around my regular jobs. I do hope one day to pursue that career full time. I enjoy painting and drawing even though I’m not so good on my free time! And I love working with kids because being able to have an impact on someone and see the growth is something that always warmed my heart.

I love taking care of kids and teaching morals and values. I don’t want to watch you children while you are gone but teach them my passion for music and art. I believe that everyone child is different and no matter how difficult the situation, you can reach out and understand how a child thinks. I have a high school diploma and am going to OCC for music education and music therapy which will take 6 years to achieve. I have experience with children with ADHD, Autism, and Down Syndrome. For the summer my availability is whenever.

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

Syracuse 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.
