Allison Fagin
Champaign$15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Hello dear families :)
My name is Allison and I am new to Champaign. Originally from Kansas, I have also lived in Hungary, Romania, and the Republic of Georgia, teaching children English and working as an Au Pair. I love the arts, healthy eating, yoga, cooking, and especially dance! I have experience teaching beginners ballet, tap, jazz, and gymnastics to young children.

My most recent nanny experience was with a great family in D.C. I was with them for 5 years and still visit them on occasion.
My nanny style is firm but fair. I believe children respond best when treated as equals and given some autonomy over decision-making,(within reason of course). I also support a Montessori approach that emphasizes independence, creativity, and discovery, and hope to become certified in the future.
Because fitness is important to me I am currently working on a personal training certification.
If you feel my values match your family's, please don't hesitate to reach out!

I’m a 19 year old expecting mother that lives here in Champaign Illinois. I’ve been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I’m trauma certified, have experience with kids of all ages. Also have experience with kids with ADHD and Down syndrome. I’m looking to babysit- I love activities with kids and have lots of free time on my hands now that I can’t work a regular commercial job (no one wants to hire a pregnant girl because they believe we’re incapable of doing things which isn’t true). I can babysit in my home or yours (:

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.
