*I DON’T Mind Live-In/FullTime*
Hi! My name is Deborah, but most people call me Debbie. I’m a Christian! I love working with children, I’ve been babysitting since I was about 10 years old. I honestly do put others needs before my own, but I don’t think it makes me weak. It just shows how dedicated I am and how much I’d go the extra mile for those I care about. I don’t have children of my own, but I’ve got +32 little cousins if that’s counts. Actions do speak louder than words so If you give me a chance I promise to not just put a smile on your child(ren’s) face(s), but yours as well. Ps: I speak French, ASL, and I don’t smoke.

My name is Becca. I have been babysitting/nannying for about 8 years. I absolutely love the kiddos I take care of. They become like family to me. I love arts and crafts, reading, and being outdoors.
Christel Stevens
Aiken$10/hr  |  9 yrs experience
Hello, my name is Christel and I am impassioned in guiding a stronger and fearless generation-- without the labels & limitations of their status, beliefs, etc. My undrgraduate Psychology education has given me a clinical view to further my already naturalistic desire and commitment to children and their future. Sometimes they just need to be nudged in a way they can relate with-- empowering & letting their ideas grow. The secret to being a nanny? You have to love it and be a natural with children and thankfully kids adore me almost as much as I them. I went to schooI because I wanted an education to help me understand on a clinical/intellectual level how to care for children so they can become a healthy individual. Additionally I have tutored Pre-k through college after every grade and class I successfully completed and I also include keeping the house, errands, laundry, preparing parent-approved food, errands, etc.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in South Carolina

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

South Carolina 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 South Carolina?
  • Do you have a South Carolina 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.
