I started babysitting around 5th or 6th grade for families around my neighborhood for when they wanted to go out to dinner or for short engagements. When I was in high school, I began a full-time nanny position over the summer for 3 kids ranging from 5th grade to 8th grade. My role was to drive them to camps, friends houses, and to get food if wanted. I was responsible for cooking meals and entertaining the kids during their summer vacation.

I started babysitting kids in my neighborhood when I was 13 (I am now 23). I have always been fun loving and kids just seemed to gravitate towards that, so I was asked to watch my cousins, neighbors, girls from my dance studio, etc. I danced my whole life, so I've taught classes so I am no stranger to kids of all ages. I genuinely love kids and enjoy teaching, caring for, and having fun with them.

I took a babysitting course when I was 11 years old. In that course, it taught me how to take care of infants, how to change diapers, feed them, how to give them baths,and how to hold them. And overall how to take care of toddlers and all children. I am CPR certified twice. I have babysat from newborns up to 11 years old. I have babysat up to 3 children at a time. I have 3 nephews. Two of my nephews are twins that are a month old. They were 5 weeks premature and when they came home I assisted in the feedings, diaper changing, baths, etc. Also, i have a neice who is turning 2 in September that I always babysit for. Not only have I just watched the children i babysat for, I have also helped them with any homework they had and drove the kids to any sports or other activities.

While I have never had an official nanny position, I have a great deal of experience working with and caring for children. I am completing my first year as a physical education teacher at Prairie Grove Elementary School in Crystal Lake, so I have worked thoroughly with children ages 5-11. I also held babysitting jobs over summers when I was in high school and grew up helping care for my brother who is 8 years younger than I am.

I have always loved kids but I have just recently been watching them, now having step siblings. I am good with the kids, we do tons of crafts, bake and read. I have taught my four year old step brother different letters, using flash cards. He almost knows what the whole alphabet looks like. My step sister is big on dancing, I was in pageants as a kid, so I love teaching her new moves! It is important for them to learn manners as well. There is no excuse for a child to not say please and thankyou.

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

Cary 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.
