The Gomez Family
Colonial Heights, Yonkers$12.50/hr  |  1 kid
I am a 1st time mom im 35. My career is a NYC Corrections Officer at Manhattan detention Complex. I sometimes have to do 16 hours 4 days a week which is why i will need someone to stay overnight. I live with my husband and 5 year old son in crestwood lake apartments. Nice neighborhood very quiet. My son's father and I work demanding hours so its unexpected when we cannot show up but we will be able to notify you if that situation arises. My son Noel is very energetic, very shy ajd quiet at 1st but he loves to jump, run, ride his bike, play with toys, dance to music, play video games, he is a picky eater thats a challenge for me, he loves bubble baths, he loves hats and play masks because his favorite holiday is halloween. He loves to learn new things watch fun movies, he loves ice cream and pepperoni pizza and of course happy meals. My son is a ball of fun energy and will tire you out easily if your not ready. He loves being around other kids since he is an only child. He also loves doing flips, being silly, showing off once again his dance moves. He loves being outside at the park. It takes him time to get used to someone and feel comfortable enough to stay long hours because he is a mama's boy. My son loves oranges, grapes, apples, bananas, frosted flakes cereal, pasta with chicken, pizza, ice cream, cookies, lunchables, apple juice orange, chocolate milk, he loves porkchops, chicken, white rice he eats beans, and more if you need to know just ask. My son is my world and it is super hard for me to trust anyone because i worry about him alot. So i would also text or call frequently to check on him also. He likes wearing hats and he likes trucks and cars.

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

Yonkers 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.
