Hello! My name is Gia. I'm 17 years old and am looking for a child care job. I have recently taken a child development and parenting class in school and I am CPR and AED certified. I am very mature and responsible for my age. I started babysitting for family and friends about 4 years ago, and I loved it so much that I wanted to keep going. I enjoy every minute being with children. I can provide basic care for your child as well as teaching letters, numbers, shapes, etc and make sure they are in a safe environment with me. I can also do light cooking and housekeeping. I will be a mothers helper as well if you'd like. I am experienced with newborns-preteens. I hope to be your future babysitter! Thank you :)

Kalyne Elam
West Babylon$11.10/hr  |  9 yrs experience
Hi! My name is Kalyne. I’m 19 years old and I am currently majoring in English to earn my B.S. to become an English teacher because I love reading and writing.
I've been a paid sitter for at least four years now. I've also taken care of all three of my younger brothers since I was 7 (they're now 4, 6, and 16 years old). I took care of them because both of my parents are in the military, so they were never home during the days.
I am looking for a full-time position that will last as long as possible. I have my own vehicle that is safe for kids and car-seat compatible, and I will always be there on time. I LOVE cooking and I enjoying keeping a house tidy and organized :) On top of cooking and cleaning, I can run errands like grocery shop for you if needed.
In my down time, I enjoy drawing/painting, watching Disney movies, reading, writing short stories, and playing outside with my dogs and cats.

I have basically been responsible for raising two young children. One is my nephew Nick, 7, who I have sat for well before he could crawl. And my youngest sister nicole, who I was responsible for, daily, while folks were at work for the length of almost 5 full years. Let alone the informal babysitting that goes along with having young children around I get along very well with kids and will gladly supply several references upon request.

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 West Babylon, 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 West Babylon can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

West Babylon 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.
