Hello! I am a single girl, a friendly one and I have a positive attitude. I am caring and compassionate. I have been babysitting for years now. I had Childhood Development/Early Childhood Education Department at Glendale Community College and I will walk with my Bachelors in ECE in the future. I have always been fascinated by children's spontaneity and creativity. My blessed message through this is helping children cultivate and grow their own talents. Reading to children is my favorite part. I'm certified in First Aid & CPR. I am also ready to prepare some light meals for the kids, do errands, etc . I have a car and my record is super clean. I have excellent references from excellent families! I look forward to meeting your family!

Hi, My name is Georgie, I am 18 years old and would love to help you out! I have been babysitting for over 3 years now and have experience with children ages 1 to 11 years old. I’m a fun yet responsible sitter and I love making kids smile! When I was young I had a babysitter who was always one of my favorite people and became family to me and I would love to make that type of bond with the family I look after. I am taking a year off to save up and do some traveling before I attend college next fall. I have reliable transportation and a wide open schedule and would love to start work as soon as possible! Thank you

I have a Bachelors in Exercise Physiology and am currently in grad school getting my Masters in Education with early childhood and special education certifications. I work in a middle school special education life skills classroom, and at LVHN Fitness as a personal trainer. Due to Allentown School District being virtual, I am looking for something that is a little more flexible, so I would be able to do observation hours during the week while I am finishing up grad school. I do have all clearances and current background checks, I am CPR/AED certified.

Lillian took care of my newborn twins for a year and if it hadn’t been for us moving I would still employ her. She is kind, patient, smart, thorough and my children adore her. She made our lives exceptionally easy and wonderful. - Kristina

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Allentown, PA

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 Allentown can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Allentown 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.
