I am a mother of 4 kids who love so much. Back in my country I had land which I was trying to build an orphanage for all the kids who had no place to go. I still have that dream but because of politics back in Zimbabwe it was hard to finish building.
I am very easy going and goofy. I accept correction and I also believe in raising the kids as a team with the parents. I believe in developing a schedule and a system that we ( parents and myself) agree on in raising those precious ones. This includes playtime, and other activities and break. Also scheduling play dates.
I am an outdoor person, I love taking nature walks, exercising, playing basketball and other outdoor games. I love doing arts and crafts exchanging my culture with the kids I take care of. When it is summer time there's just so much to do. Winter time things are limited but nonetheless there's always planned schedules. Which will be set by myself and with help of parents.
Other activities include arts, crafts, reading etc.
I also clean after the kids and make their meals, do their laundry etc.
Because of my love for kids every family I have worked for I have built a very strong relationship even after I have left.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Business.

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

Lorton 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.
