Hey! I'm Brianna. I have a Bachelor's in Molecular Biology, and I'm currently going to grad school for my Master's in Public Health. I've been babysitting throughout college, and I'm also the oldest of four. I have two siblings that are on the spectrum, one of which also has ODD; between this, and my experience in tutoring centers, I've had significant experience with children who have special needs. I spent my summers working as a camp counselor at Camp Pecometh, where I was responsible for 5-10 children at a time, ages 5-16. My specialties are craft time, early Spanish education, and kid-friendly snack prep. I have background checks available, as well as additional references.

I have an 8 month old daughter named Mya. She is my first and my whole world. My husband and I currently live with my parents because I wanted to be at home with my daughter because we couldn’t afford daycare and honestly didn’t want to put her in daycare. We want to move out but I don’t want to get a job that makes me have to put her in daycare. I love children and always have. My older sister has 3 of her own. I want to help other families who are in the same situation I am where they don’t want to put their child in daycare but instead have someone they can trust and know their child is being well taken care of. I’m looking to get my first aid certification along with cpr so families feel their child is safe in my hands. I am looking to do this out of my home because I will have my daughter with me too

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

Harrisburg 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.
