Kahdejah Jones
Mechanicsville$11.50/hr  |  1 yrs experience
Hi, I’m Kahdejah! 23 y/o college student majoring in childhood development who loves kids! I’ve been working with kids since the age of 12, starting with babysitting up until I was able to actually get a job at 16. I started as a counselor at the YMCA while doing some part time nannying on the side. I’ve continued to find families who are in need of summer help which was perfect as the college years came along (hence, the short term positions) as of today I’m looking for a loving family to nanny for full time and long term if possible.
Hope to hear from you soon !

I have years of experience caring for children since I was 7 years old, learning the skills of a mother and older sister at the same time. I helped my mother care for the other three of her children, took care of my father's two children over the summer when I was 17, worked as an assistant teacher in a preschool with small children, as well as babysitting for a family for a consecutive of 5 years who's ages were 2,5, and 7--but of course they got older. I also have experience in taking care of the elderly as I helped out my grandparents twice when they both had medical procedures done and they can provide a reference if needed, as well as assisting with an Altimerz patient with my mother at work. All information can be verified up on request with sufficient references as needed

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

Mechanicsville 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.
