Sarah E. - Seeking Work in Coatesville
Sarah E.
Coatesville$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have been involved in the lives of children since I was in Jr High School. I started by volunteering in a local church nursery. I worked with the 3&4 year olds. I assisted the teacher all thru high school. After being away for college, I came home and became one out the teachers for this class. I also started working in this church's VBS in Jr High School. I worked with 4 year olds thru kids entering the first grade. I did this until my junior year of high school when I was asked to be the assistant director of the department. I also became a counselor during this time. During Jr High School, I also started babysitting. I would babysit three to four nights a week. I babysat these children until the oldest child was responsible enough to stay home alone with his brothers. I continued to do occasional over nights for this family. In high school, I worked part time and babysat part time for three families. In summer months, I babysat full time and worked part time. My junior and senior year of high school I was a teacher's aid. I helped the kids with their homework, read to them, and tutored. I went to college for Special Education/ Elementary Education. Due to finances and family issues, I returned back home. I worked full time and babysat part time. I also took a few classes until I could no longer afford to do that and help with family finances. I moved out on my own several months ago. I have started to save up to be able to go to local night school or take online classes. I also changed my major to Early Development Child Care. I am a fun, caring, up beat person. I enjoy taking children to the park, zoo, library, ect.

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

Coatesville 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.
