I’m going to be graduating from Stevenson High school this year. I plan on attending UIUC on a pre-med track. I love being active and am a pretty good cook too! I’m pretty out going and can always find something fun to do with the kids! I worked as a camp councilor for a group of seven 5 year olds, so i’m sure I can handle one, two or even three kids perfectly well!

Hello! I'm salma. I am an honors student at UIC I am a pre-med, majoring in biology in hopes of becoming a psychiatrist. I am also CPR certified. I have been a Nanny for 5 years now . My experience with childcare comes from my mother, who has been a nanny for 14 years. Learning from her, working with children became more than just a job for me, I have worked with babies 8 months to children of ages 14. I have also worked with kids who have ADHD, ADD, as well as autism . I know every child and parent have different likes and interests, wether it is going out doors and being active, or staying inside for arts and crafts. I try to really help kids grow through the activities we do together no matter what they may be. I am also bilingual and I like to teach the kids that I nanny some Spanish (with parents OK of course). I am looking for either full or part time, or even just summer! Weekends as well if needed.

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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

Buffalo Grove 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.
