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.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Melissa M.

I can not say enough about Missy. She is so dedicated to the care, well being and needs of children. She provides endless amounts energy and creativity. I have always admired her ability to truly know and understand each child in her care, as individuals. It is without hesitation that I recommend Melissa Marceau for any position in the field of child care. - Kirsten

Mike I.

Mike was amazing with my son Ian. He was three months when he started watching him and almost a year when we moved. I wish I still had him around to help out. He was understanding of my situation and worked with me so I could be at work. When I was sick he took Ian out of the house so I could get better and rest. I highly recommend him as anyone's nanny. - Iris

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.
