The Garcia Family
Waxahachie, TX
12.00/hr
2 kids
A little bit about us…Amelia is 5 but not in kindergarten yet. The goal is to have her go to a half and half school which I will need help with in order to keep working. Karalina is three and we have a baby due in December which I will need help with while I work from home to breastfeed for about a year. We have Christian values that I would like applied to the girls daily care, so I would need someone who doesn't mind religious songs, books or shows. We do have 2 cats but they don't need care, I might decide to lock them away in a room depending on how they get along with who we hire. I am willing to work with different schedule options as I have the ability to work from home as needed. My work hrs are 8 to 5 and most days my husband doesn't leave for work til 8:15 so main hrs would be from 8 to about 5:15. I work ten mins from home, so I could potentially provide a 30 to 45 min relief once I go back to the office. While I work from home I would be ok with a one to two hr lunch break. Every two months or so my husband starts early, so I would need someone that can come at least by 7:50 on just those weeks once I go back to the office. I will buy food for everyone as long as they can prepare it. Help with homework, make kids clean up after themselves. I'm not raising no lazy-loos. We are working on fixing up our backyard, it is ok to use, but I would like someone who wouldn't mind taking them to the park. They are high energy little girls so they need to get it out lol.

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

Waxahachie 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.
