Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate your loved one than with a night on the town, a nice dinner, or an overnight getaway? There’s just one hiccup: who will watch your children? It’s time to hire a professional babysitter!
Professional Babysitting Nurses
Hiring a childcare provider is a daunting experience. After all, this individual will be caring for the most precious treasure in the world – your children! You certainly don’t want to leave them with just anyone. Who better to care for your newborn baby, toddler or school-aged children than a DHA registered nurse?
At Nightingale, our home nurses are trained to care for every aspect of your child’s need regardless of their age. Our baby care and babysitting services are designed to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your children are in the very best of hands while you are away. Our babysitting nurses and newborn nurses are dedicated to ensuring your child is safe, sound, and happy while you enjoy a much-deserved night out.
Who Says Parents Can’t Have Fun?
As a parent, you dedicate the bulk of your time and effort to your children. You work around the clock to ensure they are happy and healthy. Between school, activities, homework, and family time, the day seems to disappear in the blink of an eye.
Sometimes we forget that as parents, it’s important to take a little “self time” to recharge our batteries and refresh our relationship. And let’s be honest, wouldn’t it be nice to engage in conversations that don’t focus solely on your children? As amazing as they are, it’s nice to engage in adult conversation.
A professional babysitter gives you time to spend with your spouse knowing that your children are being cared for by the next best thing to mommy and daddy – a registered nurse! A night out with your spouse will do wonders for you. You work so hard, you deserve to have a little fun!
Babysitting 101 – Safety First
When hiring a babysitter to care for your children, it’s essential you ensure they have current first aid certifications. In the event of a medical emergency, first aid is the initial assistance provided to a child while waiting for the medical professionals to arrive. All Nightingale nurses are DHA registered, which means they are certified in CPR and other lifesaving first aid medical techniques.
Although uncommon, in the event of a medical emergency, your home nurse has the skills and expertise to tend to your child’s needs. Basic first aid covers a wide range of applications, to include what to do in the event of:
- Difficulty breathing
- High fever or seizures (fitting)
- Stings and bites
- And more
When the Parents are Away Children Want to Play
Not only is a professional babysitter the safest option around, but also they are also fun! Our babysitters understand the important role of playtime in the development of a young child. Not only do all of our babysitting nurses love children, they all possess at least two years experience caring for children. You can go on your next date night knowing your children are in the safest of hands while you are away.
