Hello! I'm excited at the prospect of working with a new family. I've included my experiences and I can give you the option of contacting the references involved with each experience. My first experience is both personal and professional. I have been friends with this wonderful mother for 11 years and I have had the honor of living with her and her two sons since she was divorced in 2007 to 2013. The boys are now 5 and 10. I have helped her with responsibilities in running the household as well as diaper changing, pottytraining, preparing meals (including meals for the youngest who had a milk allergy), helping with homework (with her oldest who has Asperger's Syndrome), etc. I was also a part of the recreational things like trips to NY and the Grand Canyon, swimming, hiking, tennis, zoo, museums, ect. I nannied for a lovely couple from June 2009 to February 2010. Their two girls were 11 and 13. I was responsible for helping with homework, taking the girls to and from school and camps, taking them to do fun activities such as hiking, shopping at the mall, cooking classes and going to the movies, light housekeeping, shopping, the girls laundry, as well as cooking kosher meals. I nannied for a beautiful growing family of 5 from October 2010 through mid 2012. The children were ages 5, 3, and 1. I started this job a few weeks prior to the one year old's birth to prepare the children as well as the house for a new baby. My responsibilities were transporting to and from school, to and from activities and camp, helping with homework, potty training, preparing meals, and keeping a consistent napping schedule. I enjoyed taking them to do fun activities such as museums, parks, libraries, hikes, swimming and nature exploring. I also managed the children's laundry and living space as well as organizing and light housekeeping. I joined my most recent family in 2012 and I've enjoyed my time spent with their 3 amazing children ever since. I started this job a month before their 3rd child was born, preparing the family and the house for their new arrival. The children are now 6, 4 and 2. My responsibilities were transporting to and from school, activities and camps, helping with homework and school related activities, potty training, preparing meals, naps, doctor appointments, and family gatherings. We spent time out at libraries, museums, parks, local town activities, and scheduled play dates. I enjoyed taking them swimming, hiking, sledding, exploring, etc. I also managed the children's laundry and living space as well as light house keeping. I live a very quiet life. I enjoy being outdoors, going to bookstores, museums, etc. I do a lot of children's activities on the weekend in addition to during the week so I always find all the fun places to go. I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't talk on the phone. I am first-aid/CPR certified. I am looking for an honest, loving family to complement. If you have any questions feel free to call. I look forward to meeting with you. Sincerely, Mary

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

North Ridgeville 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.
