I have 30+ years of experience working with children. I have 32 college credits in Child development from Blackhawk College, Moline, Ill. I am CPR qualified and have taken first aid classes this past year. I have worked as a preschool teacher working with children ages 6 weeks through 12yrs. I ran my own daycare out of my home for 10 years, eventually moving to one of my families homes to be a nanny to their three girls. When the family was no longer in need of me (all the girls being in school full time and Dad running his business out of his home, I moved on to take a job at a daycare. I was hired as the lead teacher in the nursery taking care of 4 infants ages 6 weeks to a year - I worked there for 5 years. I worked for many of the parents from the daycare/preschool where I worked taking care of their children after I would get off work in the evenings and on weekends. I took a job three years ago working for a family with 2 twin girls (age 4 weeks at the time I started) I still work for them on Wed. I also take care of a little guy 3 days a week (he is now 19 months old - was 6 weeks old when I started) This family is no longer be in need of a nanny and as April first. I will be working only Wednesdays. (My day during the week that I work for the twins can be moved to any other day of the week.

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

Champaign 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.
