A little bit about me…

I'd describe my personality as engaging, outgoing, and friendly.

I like working with kids because it's fun and interesting to watch them figure out not only how the world works but that they can influence it.

I'm looking for a job that I receive mutual respect in and that I can enjoy.

I started working with kids when I was about 10 years old, realistically.

In my spare time, I like to watch movies, listen to music, read, and just hang out with friends at home.

One thing you should know about me is that I'm just human. I make mistakes like everyone else, but I'll always own up to them and fix them. I don't make the same mistake twice.

My skills include being willing to understand the children, knowing when to be a bit more strict and when to loosen the reigns, and being compassionate.

A little bit about me…

I recently relocated to Seattle this past April and am a play-based preschool teacher during the day. Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I began my teaching journey as a Pre-K Teacher & Administrator. I received my A.A. in Childhood Education in 2021 with original plans of becoming an elementary school teacher. I began my childhood care journey as a babysitter over ten years ago and ventured off into nannying about seven years ago, which has been my favorite part of it all! I continuously strive to and pride myself on being hardworking, responsible, dedicated, caring, and creative.
I love to bake, create, do yoga, travel, plan, and explore, in my spare time. I have also begun dabbling in cooking with a New Year's goal of making one homemade recipe a day.
In my work, I love to come prepared with activities, lessons, and adventures and dedicate my time to ensuring everything is age-appropriate, interactive, and entertaining.

A little bit about me…

Hi my name is Ava, I’m a Cstudent with babysitting & nanny experience starting when I was 14 (as a mother’s helper) and have been doing it ever since. I love this job and would not trade it for the world. I’ve been a camp counselor many summers in a row at an overnight camp. I love the outdoors as well as books. I’m studying to be a hair stylist but taking a break right now to earn some money. Fun fact: My junior year of high school I spent in Europe!
I got into nannying because my mom is a teacher and I’ve always admired what she does and she’s taught me how to be the best babysitter.
I live in U district and am looking to work somewhere close by, I have a drivers license but recently sold my car. I can drive your kids places but not in my own vehicle.

A little bit about me…

Hi! I'm Lexi and I have been working with kids for the past ten years, nannying for six of those years and loving every minute of it. I have worked at a daycare before, but I think the kids definitely benefit from more of a one on one interaction.

I'm highly motivated to help kids and learn how they learn to better develop them in my day to day with them. i’ve been taking care of kids since i was roughly 10, and have helped parents with newborns to 15 years old and those with special needs and have no issue with multiple kids either! especially love outdoor activities and fun engaging activities both in and outside that we can do together with all ages of kids.

Feel free to reach out!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Seattle, WA

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 Seattle can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Seattle 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 Washington?
  • Do you have a Washington 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.
