Salem$18.50/hr  |  3 yrs experience
My name is Destaney,I am 24 Years old.

My passion for working with children began when I opened up my own business for children's Tumbling/Gymnastics! I was a All - Star Cheerleader for 13 years growing up!

I have a strong background working with children as well and adults and children with physical and intellectual disabilities.

I am dedicated to creating a fun, exciting, creative atmosphere for kiddos - While also helping parents as much as possible with maintaining everyday household duties including running errands, shopping transpiration, cooking, cleaning! Anything to make your life just a little easier!
Rebecca Lutynski
Portland$20/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
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!

Albany$14/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hello! My name is makenzie and I will be 22 in September! I come from a huge family of 6 siblings and I am the second oldest so I have quite a bit of experience caring for children. I have been working at a preschool for a little over a year now. I just found out I am pregnant myself and was looking for a nanny job more focused on one or two children that I can give my full attention to! I clean, meal prep, and plan numerous amounts of activities/games for the children as well as crafts for parents keepsakes. I am cpr/first aid certified. I also have a reliable car and driver’s license.

Please message me if you need any further information or would like to set up an interview, thank you. (:

Hire a babysitter with great references
Anisha H.

Anisha has a kind heart. She has a deep love and compassion for the children she works with. She is able to manage several children with grace. Anisha is very responsible and is a hard worker. I will miss her deeply. - Regina K. Hieb

Jacky C.

She was always happy to take care of my little girl Paige. My husband and I work different shifts but it was difficult to get a good nanny for our daughter. She was kind, helpful with cleaning, and had a light dinner for us when we got home. Definitely would hire her again for summer job! - Hiram Soria

Shay W.

Shay was so amazing with my son! She made sure he was always happy and taken care of correctly. Her patience with my son as a newborn up until a toddler was remarkable. My son loved her and never had an issue with being dropped off with her. I routinely got updates on how he was doing and appreciated the time she took to let me know how things were going throughout the day. - Kendel

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.
