A little bit about me…

I am Amanda, a sitter and nanny in State College, Pennsylvania. I am looking for a family that needs occasional, part-time care for newborn, primary school and toddler-aged children. I am a reliable and trustworthy caretaker and I am willing to work long hours.

My experience as a caretaker started when I was 15 and I have been working ever since. I am very well-versed in all aspects of childcare. I am able to provide meals and snacks, help with homework, engage in outdoor activities, and ensure your children are safe and having a great time.

I am willing to work with a live out family and charge $20.00 an hour. If you are interested and in need of a sitter/nanny, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to message me with any questions you have.

I am also great with all pets (including large like horses) and am happy to feed/let out your cat/dog/horse etc as well.

I have also coached many sports clinics and enjoy teaching children new things. I love dogs and am very pet friendly. I hope to hear from you and would love to get to know your children!

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

State College 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.
