I have been working with children for 18 years. 13 of those years I’ve been a full-time nanny for children ranging in age from 2yrs old up to 13yrs old. I’ve also cared for a number of younger children on a part-time or as needed basis. I enjoy teaching and guiding children in areas needed whether it be just basic stimulation, to potty training, to reading and writing, and up from there. I am very creative in many ways that I interact with children. I love taking children out to teach them of the world around us either by a walk in the park and other children’s activities.

Miss Pam was amazing. She did fun stuff with my daughters but also taught them a lot. She was a blessing to have for me especially as she was available any time I needed her with my insane work schedule. Highly recommended!!! - Tia

Nereida was always on time and attentive to my child’s needs. She helped around the house with minor things and also drove my child when necessary. In addition, some weekends she would be on call for me in case I needed her as a back up. - Keila

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

Ephrata 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.
