Dear babysitters, dear families,
My name is Victoria, I am an experienced babysitter myself and I am convinced that babysitting is much more than just a part-time job!
“The other day my mother said that babysitting my little brother was probably the most responsible job she and my dad had to offer to anyone.”
I fully agree with the two of them on this point, but I would also like to add an aspect that is very close to my heart:
Babysitting is not only about taking responsibility for a child’s health, but also about making the best possible use of your time together with “your” child – in other words, it is also about creating great lasting memories for them.
Throughout my studies, I have learnt a guiding principle that I try to always live by: genuinely focus on the child, their skills, interests and abilities and challenge them at whatever stage they may be while providing optimal support!
