Hi, my name Kimberly, I am 23 years old. I have been babysitting since I was 10. I would go with my older sister to watch our moms friends children and eventually i started watching them on my own. I have two children of my own and my sister has three kids that I watch sometimes.
I'm a very trust worthy person and I'm available anytime.

I have a very strong passion for working with children and as I am completing my Bachelor's degree in education, I have chosen jobs where I am able to interact with them every day. I have several experiences, including with Special Ed children! Throughout high school and college, I have worked at a daycare to help develop my teaching skills. In fall, I was accepted into the Disney College Program for an internship and moved to Florida in January to work for Disney and continued to interact with children by making magic for them! Because of the pandemic, I was sent home early and this was when I became a nanny. Two families from my daycare were looking for care as daycare closed & reached out to me. From March - now, I have had the most amazing experience spending my time with these two precious boys. To keep a consistent routine for them, I did some lesson planning, which included art, reading, & more. My hope is to align my passion for children with a family who is seeking a nanny!

Yolanda was an awesome addition to have around my daughter! She always had activities for her to do and kept her busy and entertained throughout the day and night. She was also very flexible with me regarding scheduling. My work hours could change often very last minute and she always was willing to go above and beyond to make sure she was always there for us whenever she was needed. - Nicole

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Wisconsin

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 can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin?
  • Do you have a Wisconsin 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.
