I started with my first family in 2006 with a family of four with two children. One four year old girl and a five month old baby. With this family I worked for four years. I would work with this family part time in the afternoon. I would pick the girl from school once she started to attend school and I would give them dinner, help them with their homework, play with them, and teach them good manners and how to be respectful. Since i speak spanish I would sometimes talk to them in spanish and through the years the children learned plenty of spanish. After a couple of months of starting to work with my first family, i started working with more families. I’ve worked with a total of four familes from the children's ages of infants to ten years old. I have taken care of and have helped raised a total of 6 newborn infants. After my first job I started working with my second family, who I still currently work for, in the morning two days per week with one newborn who is now three and a three year old boy who is now 6 and now an infant who is about to turn 1. With my third family I worked one day a week in the mornings who had a newborn who is now 5 and a two year old girl who is now 7. I then worked with my next family who I still work for and when I first started working with them I babysitted a 3 year old boy who is now 9, a 2 and a half year old boy who is now 7 and then I babysat an infant girl who is now 4 and another infant who is 2. I currently work for them also. I have taken CPR and FIRST AID classes and am certified with both through all my years of babysitting. Through the years of my experience as a babysitter I have grown fond of my job and have enjoyed every minute of it, thus, I love my job. Currently I am looking for a full time job with just one family.

For the past 3 and a half years, I have been working as a chef in a retirement home, but before that, I was a fulltime nanny for my niece who is now 6. I was caring for her from the time she was born until shortly after she turned 3. I loved every minute of it and unfortunately her parents' work schedules changed so I was no longer needed. I was part of her everyday life for awhile and have done everything from changing diapers to teaching her her ABCs and 123s. I not only cared and provided love for her...I cooked, cleaned, and maintained tidyness. Now my niece has a baby sister, and I look after the both of them on my days off from the retirement home. Also, I have a huge extended family with many children, and have been babysitting my little cousins since I was fifteen. I am extremly confident I can care for children of any age.

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

Berwyn 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.
