Job Description for Infant / Toddler Babysitter

Infant/toddler babysitters supervise young children for temporary periods of time, often in the home of the babysitter or his/her clients. CPR certification is highly beneficial for this work, and infant/toddler babysitters may have feeding duties such as bottle-feeding or cooking and serving food, as well as cleaning duties like general housekeeping, diaper-changing, and bathing. It is essential to have patience and a good temperament, especially in challenging situations, and babysitters must be alert at all times and ensure that the area is always free of hazards to ensure safety. They may also be expected to tutor or teach children in academic areas, so academic skills in subjects such as reading and math are highly beneficial. The children may cover multiple age groups, as well, so it's important to be able to meet all of their needs and provide discipline in an age-appropriate manner.
