My name is Megan Morris and I'm a 24-year-old college student. I'm currently working on my degree in Early Childhood Development. In order to afford my school, I must work full time; therefore all my classes are online. I am engaged and have a beautiful little girl named Savannah. I have 11 years of child care experience. I began babysitting when I was in middle school and have enjoyed working with kids since! Each summer I volunteer for the VBS program at my church; working with kids ages newborn-12 6th grade. The first family I was a nanny for had a 3-month-old and a 5-year-old, the second family had a 4-month-old and a 3-year-old. With the second family I often watched their two cousins at the same time, another 3-year-old and a 5-year-old. On the weekends I was a coach for a competitive cheerleading squad of 45 girls, ages 7-10. I 'm willing to run errands, do household chores, laundry and cooking. I have a trunk full of craft supplies, games, workbooks for various ages and CD 's that are full of learning songs. Please message me for more detail on my child care experience!

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

The Colony 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.
