I started babysitting for families in my neighborhood when I was 12. I also taught the 2-3 year old class in church for a few years. I feel comfortable working with a wide range of children and have worked with children who have a wide array of abilities and skills. I have cared for children from 2 months up to 11 years old and have been responsible for up to 6 children at one time. During college I was a nanny on and off for 2 years for a family with 3 children, two of which were twins. I love working with children and have enjoyed each child care experience! For two years I was a nanny for a family with two girls for 21 months, the girls were ages 2 months and 30 months when I started and are now 3 and 5 years old. For the past two years I have been working on my Masters of Elementary Education. I am a certified educator now. Currently I am looking for a position for the summer only.

First I should say that I am a mother of two children. My oldest is 31 years old and my youngest is 25 years old with 4 children so I am also a grandmother. So my childcare experience is vast and extensive. However, my paid childcare experience outside of my home is as follows: I spent 2 years as a preschool teacher for xx where the age range was 3-5. I loved it. From there I became a toddler teacher for Bright Horizons and I spent 2 years in this position. I spent a year and a half as a nanny for a single mom and her 9 year old daughter until she could no longer afford to keep me. I then went to work for a family that has two daughters one was 3 and the other 6. I spent two months with them when they decided that their 3 year old would do better in a physical school due to no fault of mine.

My name is Chaquera. I am 30 years old and I have been in the childcare industry for 11+ years. I became a nanny about 8 months ago and I enjoyed the experience very much. I was a nanny for couple that had 4 month old twins. I had been with them for 8 months and I loved taking care of their 2 angels and occasionally their 3 year old daughter. Due to the need for their family to downsize, I am no longer with them. I have worked with all age groups from infants to school age. I received an award from my last job in family partnership to highlight my abilities with communication and helping the parents with concerns and questions. I have a CDA which is a Child Development Associate Credential. The CDA is becoming the standard for all childcare agencies now and I have had it for over two years. I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology with a specialization in Advanced Human Development. My favorite things are arts and crafts, music and I cannot live without reading. I am currently looking for a part or full time nanny job to begin as soon as possible. I spent 5 years working as a preschool teacher. While working this job I learned a lot about nutrition, age appropriateness as how to communicate with families. The family can be looking for short term or long term worth of service and dedication. I also love swimming (used to be a swim instructor for younger children), and board games. I suck at sports, but enjoy being silly with children while trying to play sports. I have been told that I am very dramatic and when working with kids, that goes a long way.

As the oldest of four and one with a Masters in Social Work, I have been working with and loving children since the age of 10. As a professional, I have done internships and been employed working with children in school, after-school programs and residential facilities. I have been a junior and senior high youth group leader for a few years now and have also volunteered in a daycare at a local homeless shelter. Personally, my siblings are 10-12 years younger than myself so I have had many years of interacting with and caring for children.

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

Bolingbrook 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.
