I am a Nanny Home Manager, a former preschool music teacher, a builder of forts, a dryer of tears, a nurturer of little souls and a parents strong support. I bond easily with children and the parents who love them. I offer total flexibility and 100% availability to my families.

I have 15 years of experience teaching and caring for children of all ages including twins and those with special needs. I’ve had success with scheduling newborns, potty-training, and creating structure in the home. I teach and model kindness, perseverance and strength of character. Communicating expectations, setting boundaries and practicing consistency is the best way to teach proper behavior.

I’m a licensed teaching assistant and a trained tutor. I’m CPR and First Aid certified and have cared for sick and injured children. I bring my experience in interior design and home organization to help create order and beauty In the home.

My greatest joy was raising my 2 grown sons.

Hi! My name is Haden Reed, I am a graduated senior looking for a summer job! I love painting, travelling, my friends and family, and working with kids. I am attending Oklahoma State University in the fall and my major is undeclared but I am mostly leaning towards psychology! I am interested in nannying for the summer because I have always enjoyed my small babysitting jobs and I look forward to my nursery work every Sunday as well!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Oklahoma

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.

Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma?
  • Do you have a Oklahoma 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.
