Loyal Heights, Seattle$25/hr  |  23 yrs experience
Hi, I’m Tracy G, a nanny for 18 yrs, and 38 years as a child care giver. Having earned music degrees, and studied ECE and Music Therapy, I bring to families musical transitions, fun, nutritious snacks and meals disguised as treats, safety, entertainment, education, and do much more. I love how being around children keeps us all in the moment. It’s amazing I actually get paid to do something I’d do for free if I could.

I am a 20-year-old female. I currently live in Wyoming, where I grew up in a very small town with less than 2000 people. I am the youngest sibling of 5, they were all much older than me and I grew up around plenty of nieces and nephews. My first language is English. I’m slowly teaching myself ASL. I have been cooking most of my life and I love to do so I can cook plenty of dishes and always up to learning more. In addition to looking after my nieces and nephews, I would babysit cousins and family friends’ children, the kids usually ranged from the ages of 1 to 12. I can change diapers and pull-ups, I have helped with potty training and teaching simple language and maths. When it comes to leisure, I enjoy being outdoors, exploring, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I also enjoy art, swimming, and telling stories. I love to sing and listen to music. I would be happy to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences

I have been around kids all my life since I am one of six siblings and have nieces and nephews. I have also taught for 6 years as an elementary teacher. I enjoy working and educating kids of all ages and I’m very responsible and kindhearted.

My last nanny experience was with a 1.5 year old and then a newborn baby. I worked with the mother while she was
pregnant with her second baby. Did light house work and organizing/cleaning but mainly focused on the baby so mother could get enough rest and was stress free. I returned to help her out with the newborn, similar responsibilities.

Grace Dickmann
Seattle$17/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
My name is Grace and I have lived in Missouri my whole life but have been looking for a job in Seattle so I could move there. Growing up I was very close with all 24 of my cousins and would often babysit my aunts twins. As of this February I have been a nanny for 2 doctors. I watch their 4 children (ages 3-10) usually from 6:30a.m.-6:30p.m. It is by far the most rewarding job I’ve ever had and I love it, most of the tome it doesn’t even feel like work. My junior year of high school I began going to Jefferson college as a duel enrolled student. I was scheduled to graduate spring of this year but ended up graduating a semester early. I need one more semester to finish my associates degree which I plan on doing online while working. I am consider a degree in early childhood development or possibly becoming a diagnostic medical sonographer. I grew up in a religious house and regularly attend church. I love being a nanny and would like to continue being one for the next couple years.

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.
