I am the oldest of 6 so I've pretty much been taking care of babies/kids my whole life. I've also babysat many kids from my church and community growing up, including infants, and a young boy with autism on a weekly basis for 6 years. I spent my free time in high school volunteering for Northumberland Child Development Center. My jobs included organizing in the office, helping at fairs, playgroups, organizing and running seasonal events, and assisting in so many parenting workshops I could teach my own now. I loved this so much that I decided to take a child development program in university. While in school I worked (20h/week) in the toddler room at a daycare. On my off semester I returned to Canada and worked in another daycare and spent most of my time in the infant room. Due to covid-19 my daycare is closed and I've been self isolating since March 19th. I am ready to be a live-in nanny and love a new family just as I would love my own!

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!

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.
