Hi I am currently a stay at home mom to my 2 year old son. We live in East Vancouver/Fishers Landing area.
We would love a child to join us in our home to learn and play together. I would be willing to watch in your home if needed but my son would need to come with me. Children bring me joy. I have been a nanny to my nephews since birth (one is 14 and one is 9). I love helping children learn. It truly is my passion and I believe I excel at it. I would teach your child at their level and love them like my own. You should be able to relax at work and know your child is loved and cared for. I am a crafty person so lots of arts and crafts. I have a big yard for outside play. I also have a mini van and I love library and park outings (parent permission of course.) I have a clean background and driving record. I am currently not CPR certified but have been in the past and can be again. Please feel free to ask questions. I would love to learn about you and your little ones.
Thais Smith
Rose Village, Vancouver$15/hr  |  10 yrs experience
I am a stay at home mother of 4 lovely children. I have always wanted children and love spending time with them. I am looking for part time employment providing child care in the evenings or weekends. I am also open to full time care if you are willing to drop off at my home. I have not actually worked as a nanny but have raised my 4 children and taken care of my many nieces and nephews. My youngest is 11 months old and my oldest is 9 years old. I am experience with ages from newborn to 9 years old. I understand how precious children are and that it can be difficult to leave them with a babysitter. I want to provide a warm and fun environment for your child so that you can rest easy when you need to be away.

I am currently a full time student at Mt. hood Community College.

Mondays/Wednesdays I have classes till 2:30. Tuesdays/Thursdays till 12:00pm and Fridays till 5:00pm. Saturdays I am free and most Sundays I am free. Spring term I will have a different schedule and summer I will be completely free.

Hello, I’m an 18 who has spent my entire teenage life babysitting. I love kids and intend to work with children as my career, and I feel nannying and more babysit is a job I’d extremely enjoy. I have experience with special needs children as my sister has a form of Autism. I drive, have my own car, and I cook and clean, and am willing to do what ever is necessary for the happiness of the children I watch and to meet the parents standards.

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

Vancouver 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.
