Hi! My name is Sky, I have loved children and babysitting for as long as I can remember! I started babysitting at the age of 13, I was babysitting all my nephew and nieces ( I have lots of them! ) and all the neighborhood kids! I am currently finishing my last year of school, through an online school and I plan on going into nursing school next year. I live at my own home with my fiance and my daughter! I have a 6-month-old daughter, who is a blessing and LOVES being around other kids. I babysit on occasion for others but I am looking for more of a full-time babysitting/nannying job now, but I am willing to do part-time. I do prefer to watch the child(ren) in my own home, due to the fact I have my own as well. I am also okay with overnights! I will provide meals, snacks, and drinks. I have tons of toys for children, and I live right by a park. I also practice safe sleep, and will have a safe sleeping spot for them ( crib or pack n play, I have extra of both. )

I started babysitting as a young teen, and quickly discovered how much I love children. Besides raising my own (almost grown!) children, I have experience running a preschool in our local homeschool co-op - including music, story time, arts and crafts, structured learning and lots of free play time, which is where, I believe, so much learning really occurs.

I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old. I baby sat children ranging ages infant to 13 years old. The largest family I ever watched for was 4 hours. I spent 36+ hours watching this family on one occasion. Recently I was employed at a daycare caring for children ages 4 months to 6 years the majority of the day, with elementary school children in the mornings.

I have over 12 years experience of working with children. I have a sister that has four children ages 11 months to 9 years old. I watch them often through the week sometimes. I cook them dinner and help them with homework. I have also volunteered at a camp for 14 years at an overnight summer camp. The camp is for children with kidney disease or have had kidney transplants. We give them their medication in the am and pm, We play friendship and leadership games, to teach the children how to work together. I have also volunteered for three years in the babysitting room. Parents would drop off their children while they would go work out. The children ranged through the ages three months to 12 years. I also worked at a children daycare. I helped the teacher work with the children while they painted, read books, ate snacks, played interactive games, play outside, and toilet training.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Carlisle, 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 Carlisle can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Carlisle 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.
