I was babysitting for about 8 years and then decided to become a nanny. I love children and enjoy teaching them about the great world we live in. I have experience in all ages and don't really have a favorite age group because I genuinely love them all! I still keep in touch with most of the families I have sat for and nannied.

I am currently an enrolled college student at the University of Iowa looking to work full time as a Nanny for the summer of 2012. Though I do not have prior nanny experience, I do have a large amount of experience working with children. I have been a camp counselor for the past two years. Within that job position I worked with a group of 15-17 first grade girls every day, thus working with multiple children is not a problem. In this position I followed a basic schedule, however I also had to create and run many games to entertain the children during downtime or group time. In addition, I have 4 years of experience as an AYSO soccer coach. There I worked with children ages 6-10, as a coach for both boys and girls teams. I also have 7 years of babysitting experience. In this position I have worked with kids ages 5 months to age 13. While I do prefer to work with younger children, I have a large amount of experience working with both boys and girls of all ages, and a large amount of experience working with families who have multiple children. I have no issues with pets or animals, and in these babysitting jobs have worked with both children and pets.

I began babysitting at eleven-years-old and have continued to babysit on a fairly regular basis for eight years now. This has allowed me to gain much experience taking care of infant to elementary school-aged children. I’ve also been employed as a camp counselor at Deerfield Park District's Little Scampers camp (ages four and five) for the past three summers.

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

Deerfield 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.
