I am an experienced nanny/house sitter currently in schooling at the Utah Valley University studying family sciences so I can start a career helping children and families in crisis. I have grown up closely with 25 cousins and I am the older sister of two boys. I have done much volunteer work centered around children where I have gained experience teaching and understanding how to work with them, including children with disabilities. I have experience nannying children while parents are out of town. I am Red Cross certified and have a cover letter, resume, and letters of recommendation upon request. My schedule is mostly flexible and if you hire me long term I am happy to schedule next semester's classes around your scheduling needs. Thank you!

Hire a babysitter with great references
Alex T.

Alex was great to have around. We had 3 kids that she helped tend and watch. We discovered our kids are autistic and she was the perfect match to work with them. She still meets up with us and is a big part of our family. When asked to help with some light housework, she always was willing to help. She interacts with the kids. Helps them learn and grow. Alex is very lovable. - Shantell

Analaine M.

She took great care of my infant, and was quite reliable. She was flexible with occasional schedule changes, and I always felt like my kid was in great hands. - Diane

Erika M.

Erika was always very punctual and on time, my kids loved her so much. I had a daughter who was autistic and blind and Erika was AMAZING with her. She knew exactly how to calm her down when she needed, but also love her when she needed to be loved and that’s the most important part. If we didn’t move out of state she would honestly still be nannying for me. - Leandra

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Utah

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Utah 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 Utah?
  • Do you have a Utah 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.
