A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Maddy and I'm currently a senior at Ohio University. I've been a nanny since high school and love doing it. I have taken care of kids from a few months to 15 years old so I am very comfortable with all ages. When it's nice out I like to take the kids to play outside for some fresh air. But when the weather is not too great I like to find a cool activity for us to do like crafts. In my free time I enjoy going on walks, playing with my dog, or cooking a new recipe. Thanks for taking your time to read about me, I look forward to meeting you. :)

A little bit about me…

Hi Iʻm Hannah, I am 18 and will be attending Ohio University in the Fall. My classes start at 8:30am everyday and end at 10:30 Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and end at 12:20pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Iʻm struggling to find a steady job to afford my rent and thought this would be a great opportunity for me! I babysit my nephews ages 2 and 4, and have helped raise 5 siblings, so Iʻd say I have the experience. Iʻm looking forward to helping anyone who is desperate need and can work with my schedule!!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Athens, OH

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 Athens can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Athens 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.
