Chelsea Kay Edwards
Westside, Houston$25/hr  |  5 yrs experience
I am a graduate from UH. Go coogs! I have taken care of many different children over the last 5 years that have taught me how to love, play, and nurture better as I continue to babysit/ nanny. I have taken care of children with special needs which has taught me how to be more patient and understanding in listening to their needs and also what they thrive in doing while I take care of them. I have been babysitting for a family with a child with Type 1 diabetes and they have taught me about the different tools they use and need in order to help regulate levels, and they have taught me what to do if his levels are too high or too low. I helped tutor/ homeschool a child with special needs (age 7) for about 6 months and loved that experience. My availability is flexible!

Amber H.

Amber is awesome with my daughter who is currently 10. My daughter actually asks to go visit on the weekends. I enjoy Amber's down to earth, kind and heart warming demeanor. I would recommend her to anyone. I have a new born and I would want him with anyone else while I work. I know he will be taken care of as I would. - Timeka

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

Houston 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.
