Part-Time Babysitters in Minnesota
Life is hectic! At The Elite Nanny Team - we get it! Between work, caring for the kids, and maintaining the house - life can be exhausting!
Often there aren't enough hours in the day and that's where our part-time nannies come in. You need a nanny in the area of 10,000 Lakes who is reliable, honest, and hardworking.
Our college-educated nannies are here to make your life easier.
We define part-time as a nanny who works 25 hours and below.
Each eligible nanny undergoes a background check and drug test ensuring that your children are safe. But do you know the difference between just a babysitter and a nanny?
What is the Difference between a Nanny and a Babysitter?
There are significant differences between the two. Anyone can hire a teenage babysitter and pay them minimum wage. What kind of childcare will you receive? Minimal, at best.
A babysitter is someone who simply watches your children and makes sure no harm comes to them (we hope).
Babysitters generally aren't knowledgeable about age-appropriate activities, proper sleep training techniques. "Sitters" are minimally aware of the hazards that kids can get themselves into.
At our agency, we consider stay-at-home mothers to be babysitters. The International Nanny Association is the most highly respected educational source for nannies.
They define babysitters as someone who 'provides supervisory, custodial care of children on a full-time or part-time basis. Many babysitters have no special training and have limited childcare experience."
Nannies, on the other hand, are well-rounded individuals. Childcare is their passion and they have often devoted themselves to advancing their childcare knowledge. Career nannies have significant knowledge about respected child-rearing practices.
How Much Does a Nanny Cost?
Nannies aren't cheap. You are paying for reliability, experience, and convenience. You are also paying for their extensive childcare knowledge and their passion for providing quality childcare. Every nanny agency is different.
At The Elite Nanny Team, parents pay their nanny directly typically using a direct deposit system, but some sitters accept checks. This is great because it offers the family greater control and an overall reduced yearly cost. You get the added convenience of your nanny being able to transport your kids from school and activities.
At home, childcare is tax-deductible which you can learn more about Here. At our Minneapolis based nanny agency, the lowest hourly rate we will extend to nannies on our client's behalf is $15.00 an hour. At $15.00 an hour, fewer of our nannies are college-educated. The higher the hourly nanny pay you offer, the greater the skill and education we can recruit for.
