Hi there! My names Gabriella, but you can call me Gabby. I have a lot of experience with taking care of children. I helped my mom raise my younger siblings and I would even take care of my older siblings as well if need be. I'm very caring and patient. I love to clean and keep things tidy. I'm not much of a cook but I can follow a recipe and it'll taste just as the way it should be.

I started babysitting about 10 years and I have been a nanny for the past 4. My first nanny job was for a baby from 8 weeks until 8 months, when his mother decided to stay home with him. My current job has been with two little girls for the last 3 years. I started the the oldest was 11 months old and when the second came along, I started caring for her around 4-6 weeks. As far as babysitting, I have work with children of all ages and situations, including a family with 8 kids.

For several months, I was the nanny for an infant/toddler. I provide the childcare in my home here in York County, VA, in the Grafton District. Our home has been "baby proofed" as I am a stay at home mom for my 2 year old son. We have a fenced in yard, plenty of toys, in a safe neighborhood only a short distance away from a local park.

Most recently I was a nanny with a great military family whose father deployed to Afghanistan from Nov-August. I gave the family priority commitment & they were very kind to me in return. They had the sweetest little girl (turned 1) named Leah who I helped to potty train, dance/sing/color/read/walk/play/learn for hours each day. The mom worked in a nearby hospital so her hours could be funky, and they always had my full priority. I became a special needs attendant through Public Partnerships to take care of a 4 year old boy with autism and his two year old sister. Each morning I would arrive to wake the children up, make breakfast, prepare lunch, get everyone dressed, and drive the boy to his school about an hour away. We had our daily routine that may have included play time outside, learning our letters and manners, sing a long's, dress up, and art time (for their dad who was on deployment) group play time, zoo visits on weekends, and family gatherings when the grandparents came to town. I also was a nanny for a set of realtors, where the parents worked from home, and had two children (10 month old girl & 3 year old boy) that required making meals, dressing, naps, outside play time, going to the YMCA pool, dancing and song time, dress-up, birthday preparations, and having children over from the neighborhood to play outside. I also became a personal assistant for these parents, and ran errands to include helping set up our Nemo fish tank, grocery shopping, car repair visits, and helping out with their real estate business through computer publishing/advertising/ photographing their properties.

I had my first childcare experiences after I finished a babysitting course at my local hospital at the age of 13 years old. I babysat for several local families in my town throughout high school. These children ranged in age from 1 year to 7 years old. During my undergraduate education, I worked part-time at a Childcare Center where I cared for children ranging in age from 2 months to 3 years old. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I worked at a School of Sparta, NJ first as an assistant teacher in the 6 weeks to 1 year old classroom, then as an assistant teacher in the 12 to 18 month old classroom, and finally was promoted to lead teacher of the 12 to 18 month old classroom. I was there from January 2007 until April 2008 when I left to earn my Masters of the Arts in Education in elementary curriculum and instruction at The College of William and Mary. I graduated with my Masters in May 2009, and in August 2009 moved to Japan to teach for the Japanese public school system as an assistant English language teacher for children ages 3 years to 14 years old. Once I returned to America in August 2010, I was hired as a fourth grade elementary school teacher. I was an elementary school teacher in York County for 3 years.

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

Yorktown 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.
