Actually I have been assisting in childcare since I was about 7 or 8. The afterschool daycare I went to had a seperate room for toddlers, and I would always volunteer to help watch them for a few hours. That mainly consisted of helping pass out snack and help keep watch over them while they played. Then, at the age of 12 my little sister was born, and I spent a lot of time as a mommy's helper during that time, and eventually a babysitter as she got older. In addition to babysitting my sister, I starting babysitting for my neighbors, which had four kids, the oldest being age four, and the middle two being twin girls. From there, I've babysat for family friends, friends of family friends, and neighbors with multiple numbers of children. The biggest group of kids I've ever babysat for alone was five (none over the age of two) and that was every other Sunday for a family friend's church group. I can provide references if necessary.

I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old. I have a passion for working with children. I have worked in church nursuries, preschools, and with the school age childcare and I love them all. I have taught dance classes as well. Last summer I ran a summer camp with an age range of 2-12 and had approximately 5-10 kids a week. I was responsible for ordering lunches, organizing field trips, and taking the kids swimming. I loved it and really missed doing that this year. In the future, I want to open up a facility teaching children how to bake.

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

Gainesville 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.
