I am a fun loving mom of two daughters ages 17 yr old and 20 yr old. However, I would be such a great nanny because of my previous experience working at an in home daycare or just babysitting someone kids when they couldn't find anyone else to do it. Although, I always love to talk, play games, and teach kids a lot of precious jewels that would be beneficial throughout their lives as they interact with others to help them with each milestone as they become preteens, teenagers and young adults; in the years to come.

Hey! Let me tell you a little about me. I'm super friendly and love listening to children laugh, especially if it's at my corny jokes! I'm a creative free spirit so art and music time are my favorite. I grew up on a farm so cleaning messes isn't a big deal. I love furry friends so no need to worry if you have a four legged baby too. I have worked at Varina Elementary as an instructional assistant for two years now but have recently started looking for something different that will still allow me the privilege of caring for children. My first year working there I was in charge of a group of special needs kids who needed extra tutoring, small group work, and data collection on their progress. My second year there I was assigned to monitor a third grade autistic kid behavior. So i'm fine working with special need kids. I have also been a volunteer at my church's baby and toddler nursery for two years. I have been red crossed trained in first aid, CPR, and life guarding for four years.

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

Richmond 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.
