I have 25 years experience as a loving compassionate nanny. I have also been an school teacher. I work well with multiple children families as well as single children families. I am kind, loving, attentive and empathetic. I am Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certified. Health and Safety are very important to me when taking care of children. I also have taken care of families with dogs and cats. I love animals as much as I love children. I am looking for something full time. I had full time positions with 2 families for over 4 years until their children were both in school. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and your family (and pets) to see if we could be a good fit.

Hi there, I'm Madi!
A few things about myself would be that I am very energetic and creative and love spending time outside. I have been babysitting a majority of my life since my family is so big and have always loved it. I am about to be 20 years old and am currently enrolled into a few online classes at Waubonsee.

I am a sophomore in college and enjoy all things outdoors! I am minoring in spanish and with my six previous years, can teach your child(ren) the basics of the language. Keeping busy during the summer has never been a problem for me. I hope to give your kids a fun, activity filled summer. I am comfortable around animals, as i have one fur baby of my own. I have my own transportation to and from your home and don't mind tidying things up when I'm around. I am very easy going and adapt well to flexible schedules.

I worked for the last family for 5+ years. I can do pretty much everything. I love being active with the children. I love cleaning, doing laundry and all that. I preformed all these tasks with this last family. I like to be more than just a caregiver. I'm still a huge part of this familys life even though they no longer need care.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Batavia, 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 Batavia can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Batavia 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.
