A warm hello to you, and your family! Since I am a mom of two (now adult) children, I have experience with all ages and stages. I am an extremely positive, patient, fun, open minded, respectful, responsible, and hard working person. I have been a small business owner most of my adult life but, my real joy is being with children. I can supply a (wonderful) reference from the family I currently work with (and love). My reason for applying is twofold; the family I am with will out grown me soon, and I wish to move to the Portland area where my daughter lives.
I am happily willing to be a “household assistant “, -to help in anyway that will be supportive to you, along with my nanny duties. I am an exceptional organizer, cleaner and cook. I love children, animals, art, nature, “farm to table” food, books, hiking, and yoga.
I hope you will consider me, because to help support a family during the busy stages of baby to young childhood would be a JOY!
Thank you for your consideration!

Hi! My name is Alayna. I am currently on the path of finishing my senior year of highschool to graduate with my Medical Assistant license. Along with continuing further to receive my Bachelor's in nursing. I do online school so my schedule is very flexible. I am unavailable Wednesday nights (6pm and on), Thursdays, or in the earlier half of Friday's. I have taken 3 CPR/First Aid classes in the past year and have light training in lifeguard rescue. My oldest brother is very autistic, so I have great experience in handling children with special needs. I am seeking a part time job that I can manage while maintaining my grades in online school and my internship hours. I have experience in being a housekeeper for over a year as well. I'd love to meet you and your child!

Corvallis$11.25/hr  |  1 yrs experience
I am very nurturing and compassionate. I'm 19 years old and in my sophomore year of college. I'm dependable and trust worthy.

Previously I worked at Three Rivers Christian Daycare as an assistant preschool teacher in Washington until I left for college. I absolutely loved what I did there and it has made me pursue going to school to be an elementary teacher. I currently attend Oregon State University in the double degree program in sociology and education with a minor in criminal justice. For this next coming up year, I am planning on taking most online classes, so I'll have a more opened up schedule for work. At my last job I made sure the children where following the safety guidelines, prepared their meals, escorted them around the building and interacted with them during their activities. I assisted children from ages two through six. This has created my passion and I will be furthering my educated to make this my career to work with children.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Oregon

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.

Oregon 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 Oregon?
  • Do you have a Oregon 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.
