Hello, dear family! My name is Claudineia, I am originally from Brazil and I have over 8 years of experience working as a childcare provider. I recently moved to Henrico with my Husband and step daughter. From babysitting, being a full-time nanny and working at a daycare, I have gained a lot of knowledge about working with children. I am open to a live-out position, and I would be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone. In my live-in experience, I took care of two little girls that became very special to me. When I started, the younger one was only a newborn and I helped with all aspects of their care, including: bottle feeding, introducing solid foods, diaper changing, helping with potty training, bathing, reading, playing and ensuring they were happy, safe and loved. I have also cared for school-aged children and have experience in preparing their meals, driving them to school and activities, helping with homework, engaging them with reading, art projects, indoor and outdoor games and being a fun friend and a positive role model for them. My last experience was taking care of a very sweet boy in NYC, he was 5 months old when I started and I stayed with him for 10 months, I was responsible for all his needs, helping him with his development, reading and introducing him to new things, and always providing him with a safe and happy environment. I am very active, energetic, patient, organized, and always ready to have fun with the kids but also able to follow rules and keep up with busy schedules. If you would like to learn more about me and my childcare experience, please do not hesitate to contact me!

I am looking for something long-term. Being a nanny is right up my alley. I have worked with kids since I was thirteen. I have tutored at an elementary school, which involved teaching children to read, and babysat. I have been responsible for up to six kids at a time, and I had no problem with it. There are families that I have been working with since I began babysitting. I love kids and get along really well with them. I love to do different kinds of crafts and many other fun things as well. I believe I am very responsible and able to do whatever is needed when it comes to caring for children. When it comes to discipline I am very calm. I believe in talking out what was done wrong and finding a solution on how to handle it next time. As for cleaning and such, I had a strict upbringing when it came to that, so I am confident in my abilities to handle that as well.

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

Henrico 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.
