I have been watching and working with children since I was 13 yrs old. I started to nanny for my Aunt during summer breaks when she had her new born. I watched her alone during summers for 3 years until my aunt had her second baby. I then watched both of them until I was 19 years old and officially moved away from home to Texas.
Sense then I have had the privilege of working with children on a more day to day basis. In 2014, I started working for an after school program where I watched and taught children from kindergarten to 6th grade. I quit that when I needed a higher paying job as I had recently gotten married in 2016. Upon marriage I started working for a church in my current city. I had been a volunteer kids church leader until I became the kids pastor at the beginning of this year. I am in the process of leaving that church as my husband and I are now moving to Stafford VA for his job opportunity!

I am available during weekdays and some weeknights.

Primary responsibilities were: getting the three older kids up and ready for school and off and on the bus. taking care of the youngest during the day. Changing diapers, help with potty training, laundry, cleaning, making lunch and occasional dinner preparation. Helping the 3 older kids with homework. Teaching the youngest her letters, numbers and colors. I also have experience with special needs children as I have watched and helped my two autistic cousins.

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

Stafford 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.
