Aleksandra Bebenek
Algonquin$13/hr  |  3 yrs experience
My name is Aleksandra Bebenek and I'm a student at Illinois State University and currently at home for the summer. I'm looking for a position so I can help out as much as possible. I do have experience with two kids. I started around three years ago, the little boy was 8 and the girl was 11. I would come and watch the kids all summer take them to get food, take them to trampoline parks, and just simply help them enjoy there summer and be caring for them at the same time. Me myself, has three sisters and we all have grown to care for each other especially my younger sister. I love kids in general and would love the opportunity to help a family out as much as possible.

My name is Carrie. I am a mom of 3 biological children and 2 by marriage. I absolutely love my children and everyone else's!
I love seeing children grow and learn. I have been a teachers aide for autistic and behavioral disorder children. I learned from them and they learned from me. I believe children are amazing little people with such fun personalities! I miss my children being little and watching them develop. I have a knack for calming children. I am a Medical Assistant presently and any small children who need casting or calming, I'm usually the one they come looking for!
I love playing games, reading children books, and don't really ever want to grow up! I'm about having fun and living every day to its fullest!

I have worked as an assistant mentor in a clasroom for about 10 years. I educate children between the ages of 6 to 12; in the Art room, I am the lead teacher for ages 5 to 12. Although I am considered an assistant I have a lot of responsibilities on a daily basis. Anything from making materials for the class to checking homework, helping the children make snack to cleaning the bathroom. I live my life, inside and out of the school, through the Montessori theory; to stimulate and guide the enthusiasm of learning without interfering with the child's natural desire to teach themselves and become independent.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Algonquin, IL

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Algonquin can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Algonquin Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Illinois?
  • Do you have a Illinois driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
