Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Hi there - I'm the mama of a six year old, loving, imaginative, communicative, and red headed autistic son. I'm exploring child care options in the area for the summer and into the next school year. I would love to establish a relationship with a nanny or nanny share in the region that has experience in special education or is looking to gain experience in the area. He loves museums and playgrounds, will soon be starting ABA, and attends multiple therapies a week to help his development.

I am looking to hire part time, 20 - 30 hours a week, 3-4 days. Responsibilities would include transportation to and from therapy sessions, experiences at local parks and playgrounds, libraries and other enriching experiences. He's a loving child, he loves to run and play and has hair as red as the day is long. He loves The Wiggles and Mickey Mouse and is a perpetual ball of beautiful stimming and hand motions. He loves Moana and Disney movies but hates when we sing, we think he has perfect pitch and would love to get him involved in some musical lessons this summer.

Caring for someone's child is a selfless, loving act, thank you to everyone on this platform for all that you do for families.

I want the experience to be one of those success stories, where you come to visit once you graduate college and he's ten or twelve and he remembers, trusts, and is excited to see you in his own little way, lost in his own mind at times, but never forgetting the time you spent together.

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

Danville 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.
