Finding a baby sitter that is a good fit with your family's interests is important- do you want a sitter who will take children to the park, help with homework, and play board games?

Moving to a new city is difficult, especially if you have children. With more than 5,000 families expected to move to the Dallas area in the next two years, due to corporate relocation with Toyota, Liberty Mutual, Chase and State Farm, College Nannies + Tutors in Frisco developed this  list. 

 

  • Determine what type of nanny or sitter best fits with your family: are you looking for a high- energy individual who will participate in games and sports, a quiet confidante who will read aloud, a nurturing sitter who will hold your baby for hours at a time? Each family and their children have their own unique needs and you need a caregiver who will be a good match and a role model to your children.

 

  • Determine when you need nannies or sitters- on a consistent schedule, after school every day, or daytime in the summer? Or occasionally, for a Saturday night or school holiday?

 

  • Have a Plan B in case your regular sitter or nanny can't make it at the last minute.  Do you have back-up?

 

  • Be clear about the expected duties: Are they transporting children in their car to practices, games and activities? Cooking meals for the children?  Helping with homework?

 

  • If you’re relocating, ask your Human Resources liaison if they have lists of referrals.

 

  •  Whether you have a lot of experience with nannies/sitters or this is the first time you are hiring someone, you need to know that the person you trust to take care of your children is reliable.  Conduct In-person interviews, do a national background check and  reference checks, and ask about child care training and certifications (such as CPR/First Aid).

 

  • If you hire a nanny directly, be aware of employment laws, tax and payroll implications requiring withholdings from your employee’s pay, and employer taxes you will have to file as a household employer.

 

  • Consider using a professional service, like College Nannies + Tutors, that has already thoroughly vetted the sitters and nannies they hire. They will also work to find the best role model match for each family and provide back- up care in case of an emergency. College Nannies + Tutors also has an app that allows you to book your favorite sitter in minutes.  Since they employ their caregivers directly, they care of all tax and insurance (including liability and worker’s comp) responsibilities.

Dunkin' Donuts representatives, including Sprinkles the Donut, presented Courtney Bagot from the North Texas Food Bank with a check for $20,000. The donation will fund the organization's Food 4 Kids backpack program, to provide food to children during the summer.

 

Dunkin’ Donuts, America's favorite everyday, all-day stop for coffee and baked goods, along with Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, celebrated the grand opening of its combination restaurant in Dallas at 14841 Coit Road on March 23,  2016. To commemorate the grand opening, the restaurant celebrated with a check presentation to the North Texas Food Bank. The check represents a $20,000 grant from The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation (DDBRCF)

 

The $20,000 grant from The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will provide 400 children with 4,000 backpacks filled with wholesome food during the summer, the hungriest time of the year. More than 300,000 children face hunger across the North Texas Food Bank’s 13-county service area each year and this grant will help North Texas Food Bank better serve those kids in need. Dunkin’ Donuts also delivered breakfast to the teachers and faculty at nearby Dover Elementary in Richardson, a North Texas Food Bank Food 4 Kids backpack program site, that morning.    

 “The North Texas Food Bank’s child feeding programs are critical to supporting the one in four kids in North Texas who are struggling with hunger,” said Jan Pruitt at the North Texas Food Bank. “With support from The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, we can ensure that more kids have access to the food needed to learn and thrive.”

Study areas should be designed to mask distractions and allow student to concentrate,

  

Are tutors necessary? Who looks for tutors?

1)       Parents who want their child to excel

  • Students and parents have success with tutoring if both are realistic about student’s interest, patience and abilities and limitations- not everyone can, or wants to be, an A student.
  • Getting a child into an elite college, after intensive tutoring, may not be a good outcome if they struggle once they are there.  Realistic expectations are important in general.

 

2)       Students with organizational difficulties

  • These students usually respond well to tutoring,  as individualized tutoring can help them figure out a style that works for them – color- coded notebooks/ planner/ phone  reminders-- that are tailored to the way they think and work best.

 

3)        Students with learning differences

  • Students with ADD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc. require totally individualized plans, developed after meeting with students and parents. Cookie – cutter classroom tactics are frustrating to them, and don’t work well in a tutoring atmosphere, either.
  • Study areas should be designed with this in mind containing sound masking (white noise) machines, buoy chairs for students who cannot sit still, and a well-lit environment.
  • Tutors can also help students learn different study skills to help them retain information better based on their learning style (mind mapping, note taking, memorization techniques, etc.)

 

4)       Students Preparing for Tests (ACT/ SAT prep)

  • Prep classes can help those who are anxious about test- taking, so they feel better prepared for the actual test.
  • These classes may not be as helpful to those who already do well on tests, and are trying to boost scores a few digits, unless there is a specific area or two where they don’t do as well and need to better understand the content. 

 

What to look for in a tutor


1) Tutor must have the ability to observe and communicate with the student, to see what traits are helping or hindering them at school.

2) Tutor must be able to build trust with the student, which is easier when they are not a parent or teacher. They are free of being graded by the tutor.

3) The tutor should teach the student specific habits and help develop skills that work for them, and let them become more independent learners.

4) Tutor has mastered the topic in his/her own academic record – in other words, they know the material inside out

Expectations

1)        Improved grades may be an effect, but shouldn’t be the immediate goal.  More important is having a better grasp of the concepts and material so they strengthen their foundation from which future classes will be built upon

2)       Student feels more successful, decreasing stress over homework and school performance.  Building confidence

3)        Tutoring does not have to be forever- when the student feels confident in their abilities to work without a tutor, they should move on.
