A little bit about me…

Hello there!
My name is Elsa and I love taking care of kids. I know that nannying is about more than simply watching kids. In my 20 years of experience, I have worked with families who have all types of needs. Connecting with kids on their level is important to me. I love watching babies grow and helping around the house for the growth and success of the families I work with.

"Elsa is intelligent, hard working, honest, kind and loyal. She was a live in nanny for the first five years and a full time nanny for my baby girl and later on for a second baby, for 15 years. She will be loving and caring nanny for your child too. Elsa communicated well in both Spanish and English , follows directions, makes delicious meals and very accurate with everything she does. Now when my children are grown, I still stay in touch with Elsa and she visits us just to remind about great times."

Lina C. - Seeking Work in Scottsville

A little bit about me…

I’m relocating from Boston to Charlottesville ends of September!
I have more than 6 years of experience, I’ve been an au pair (full time nanny live in + household manager) for two years and I’m currently nannying.
I don’t see myself as career nanny though I’m really good at it. I truly enjoy seeing kiddos grow and be part of their days. I’m also at my best when I’m helping people and it just comes easy for me, and pretty sure every parent is a superhero but anyone would agree a little help sometimes is needed ha.
I would love to connect with interested families, I'm happy to give you my references.
I'm fluent in English and Spanish (happy to teach).
I’m an excellent swimmer, have my own car with clean record, love animals, fully vaccinated.
Open to nanny share!
Most of all I want to be there for support, I’m very flexible and helpful, I believe in team work and I’ll do my best to make this journey easier.

She is creative with playtime, crafts, and meals. Overall, she is extremely reliable and has a positive attitude about childcare."

Inaru C. - Seeking Work in Hampton

Nanny Inaru

Hampton, VA

< 1 year experience

A little bit about me…

Hi, I'm Inaru. I'm 47 years old, mom of 3 kids ages (2 boys & 1 girl) 31, 27 and 13 years old and a grandma to a 9 month old precious baby boy! I relocated from New York City to Virginia two years ago which I'm loving very much!! I've never worked under the title of being a Nanny but I've done tons of babysitting throughout my life. I'm currently working at the Newport News Police Department as a Records Technician during the evening hours so I'm looking for part time job that I would enjoy doing and that I'm really good at. After searching and not being happy with what I've been coming across, I thought to myself that being a Nanny will be the perfect job! I know how important it is to have someone around to help out with the little & big things around the house and with our children. Even if it means to have an extra 10 minutes in a hot shower or go through our personal emails. I promise that I can be that extra hand you need and trust. Look forward to meeting you.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Virginia

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.

Virginia 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 Virginia?
  • Do you have a Virginia 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.
