Athena Hansen
Abilene$11/hr  |  2 yrs experience
My name is Athena. I have been working with kids for 9 years now and I love every moment of it. I started as just a classroom aide in my local elementary school my junior year of high school when I didn't have any classes to attend. I knew then that working with kids was what I wanted in life. Though it took me a while to find my preffered child related job-nannying. I have worked in public schools, headstart programs, after school programs. I have been lead teachers, assistant teachers, private tutors, sign language interpreter, and now finally a nanny. I find I lean more towards Montessori teaching rather than traditional- in that most everything I do is child led. From potty training to outdoor activities to field trips. The only thing I keep consistent are meal and rest times. Other than that I love including the kids in the decisions throughout the day, and then building on the teaching moments that happen naturally throughout our time together.

College student looking for a personable and enjoyable job. I am the oldest out of 5 siblings, and was nanny-ing an infant at age 12. I would prefer not to care for newborns, as that is an extremely sensitive time for a child. I am confident I could be a wonderful sisterly presence as a child caregiver.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Abilene, TX

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 Abilene can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Abilene 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 Texas?
  • Do you have a Texas 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.
