A little bit about me…

I graduated from Texas state university with a BFA in studio art in 2022. I’m positive, energetic and spend most of my time outside hiking or paddle boarding. I have an adorable chiweenie named maple who is slightly over fed, but well loved.
I stumbled into nannying after looking for a job after graduation. I then realized how much I enjoyed nurturing kids and helping them reach new milestones! (The free cuddles are definitely a plus). The last two families I’ve nannied with both had infants with special needs so I have occupational, speech, physical, and feeding therapy experience from working with the therapists for these children. Twins are my speciality but I love caring for solo babies as well :). Contact me if you would like to set up an interview or see my references! My current contract ends November 15th

A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Holly Grace, and I am a senior at Texas State University who is majoring in speech pathology. I chose this path as my career because I have always loved working with children and helping families!

I have been a nanny now for 7 years, and the first family I was with when I first started had 4 little one who were 2, 3, and two 6 month olds. I was with them for four years, and loved every minute of it! Besides playing with the kiddos I also helped with cleaning, picking up around the house, meal prepping, cooking dinner for the family, and running errands.

I am still currently nannying for a family, but due to me leaving for graduate school in May the new nanny is going to start at the end of January, so starting February 1st I am able to help Monday-Thursday after 2pm! Please reach out if you need any help, I would love to talk!

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

San Marcos 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.
