A little bit about me…

Hi!
My name is Rachel and I’m a happy Nanny of 9 years living in Pittsburgh Pa!
I grew up in a large family of 7 siblings and after nannying through my senior year of highschool (thanks to a dual credit program through my local community college) I decided to nanny as a profession and haven’t looked back.
I have extensive experience as well as references. I’ve worked with mostly infants and toddlers but have experience with older children as well.
I’m fortunate to genuinely enjoy my job and have had the privilege of working with some really great families over the years.

I’m available for full time or nanny shares at the moment, I don’t mind commuting for the right job. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have! I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

"Rachel was such a god send at a time of need for myself and my family. She is very professional, reliable, kind and eager to help in every way. Rachel is also very creative in finding fun things for the kids to do to keep them busy. We ended up moving and wished we could have taken her with us! Any family who has Rachel as their nanny is indeed a lucky one :)"

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Pennsylvania

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.

Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania?
  • Do you have a Pennsylvania 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.
