I'm Marli! I am a bubbly and positive 23 year old looking for a full time position in the Toledo area as I am preparing to move. I am currently a part time student majoring in pediatric recreational therapy. I have previously nannied, babysat, taught preschool, and worked in a child care facility. Some days it feels like I've done it all. I have cared for as few as 1 newborn up to 10 children at once. I personally love to read and spend as much time outdoors as possible. I also love family/children's movies. My favorites include every Disney movie ever made, Wreck it Ralph, and Hotel Transylvania. On a more serious note, I have my own reliable car. I am willing to travel to you and take your children to their personal activities or fun activities that we plan. I am very flexible, and accommodating because life happens. I am an STNA. I also have my CPR, First Aid, and AED certifications. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Ohio

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Ohio 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 Ohio?
  • Do you have a Ohio 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.
