Currently, I'm an assistant teacher in a Nido classroom at a Montessori School, but I'm looking for a nannying or babysitting job with more flexible hours to accommodate my work as a full-time Social Work undergrad at Radford University.

My past child care experience is very extensive. I have been babysitting for many years. I have babysat children that are newborns to age 12. My mother also has a day care in our home and I have helped her with that from the time she started it (8 years ago).I have babysat the last five summers, morning until evening, preparing meals and driving children to practices and camps. I also am a Human Development major at Virginia Tech and have taken a class in infant and childhood development which has helped me to better understand children's needs.

In 2010 I graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor's degree in Psychology focusing on Child development. I currently work as a pre-k teacher in Blacksburg VA. Before becoming a full time teacher in the 4&5 y/o pre-k classroom I worked in multiple classrooms each day from age 1-3. I have been baby-sitting for the neighborhood children and for my cousins for many years. I also have worked as a camp counselor in Tennessee and as a math and English tutor at an elementary school in the Bronx, NYC. Though it is often challenging working with children, the joy that comes from helping them learn new skills is unmatched.

I have been babysitting since I was twelve years old. During summers in college I watched children regularly part-time. I also worked at a daycare for a few months but I would prefer to be able to work more one on one with children.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Blacksburg, VA

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 Blacksburg can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Blacksburg 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 Virgínia?
  • Do you have a Virgínia 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.
