Hi families! My name is Danielle. I am 35 years young. My biggest joy as a teen and now in to adult hood is being around children. I was the neighborhood babysitter when I was growing up and spent almost every weekend going from house to house watching the children of the neighborhood. I became part of the family to some of these families and remain close with them today. My most recent experience after getting out of the restaurant industry after 15 years was being a nanny to the most loving, free spirited (which made her a handful at times) 3 year old this past summer. She kept me very busy, and brought a smile to my face and brought out the kid in me.

I am currently with a family with a 3 yr old. They want to keep me for part time work when they put their daughter in preschool. They would prefer "family share" where I could keep them and still work with another family but all of this is negotiable. I have been a nanny for 10+ years.

My first childcare job was for a family with four children between the ages of 6mo. and 6 years. I stayed with that family for about 3 years until I went away to college. I still maintain contact with this lovely family. I cared for my neighbors' twins since they were only a few months old. I babysat them whenever needed until a few years ago; they moved back to England! I volunteered in New Jersey for a very long time and was a summer counselor for an art camp for 3 to 5 year olds. I was CPR and first aide certified several years ago. I love children and have a lot of fun with them. I currently babysit randomly for families I've met from my past babysitting experiences. Two years ago I was a nanny for two children, one with special needs. The only reason I left this position was because they moved and the commute was too long for me. I did, however, stay with this family and commute to their new house until they found a lovely, suitable replacement.

I have worked with children since I was 13 starting with babysitting neighbors, tutoring and after school care. I have worked in daycares as a preschool teacher as well as a nanny for infants up to the age of 13. I love working with children. I consider it a blessing to watch children grow and witness them reaching each milestone of their younger years.

My first job was at a daycare for over a year when I was 16. I worked there for over a year when i was layed off due to not having enough children to watch. I was a nanny for 2 young children 3 and 6 in 2008 for about 6 months. Was let go because the father of the children became a tay at home father. Was a nanny a second time in 2009 from June to Feb 2010. Due to loss of income i was again let go.

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 Pottstown, 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 Pottstown can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Pottstown 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.
