A babysitter might look after a child of pre-school ages or older, up to a child's teen years. Babysitters are childcarers but they do not necessarily have childcare or formal training. They perform support tasks for the family when the parents or carers cannot. For example, they might walk children home from an after school club, or take care of children in the evening to give the parents or carers a night off. Agreed by the parents or carers and the babysitters will be a set of duties or tasks from perhaps reading and making sure a child goes to bed at the proper time to helping them eat their supper properly or making sure they have a hot meal.

Responsibilities & Skills

Babysitters need to be confident, reliable and adaptable. They must be able to respond and respect the care and needs of a child and be naturally giving and loving and have the respect of the parents and carers at heart to perform the tasks and duties set out. They need to be conscientious and reliable and on time. They might need to know about cooking and how to keep children well behaved and even help them with their homework. You might pick children up from school and stay a couple of hours with them until the parents come back from work. The work is varied and interesting and great experience for further career options in childcare, caring and even tourism and the hospitality industries.
