A little bit about me…

I'm Abi Placek, a 27-year-old woman living in Woodridge, IL, with a passion for childcare spanning over a decade. My journey began at the local recreational center, where worked in the Childcare Center before transitioning into a full-time nanny role straight out of high school. Over the years, I've had the privilege of working with children of all ages, taking on a diverse range of responsibilities. I take an incredible amount of joy in what I do, and would love to find a long term role!

A little bit about me…

Hello, I'm Sophia Clark! I’m 20 years old! I’m starting esthetician school in November and I’m also a licensed nail technician! In my free time, you'll find me relishing quality moments with my friends and family, doing my nails, and skincare routines. And, of course, there's always room for some retail therapy. I love children and I’m told I’m great with them, so what’s better than being a nanny?! I would also like to add, I’m not yet CPR certified but I would love to be. I did complete a course in high school but I unfortunately let it expire. I’m so excited to meet you and your family. Thanks for visiting my profile! Hope to hear from you soon!

"Ruby was the most flexible and patient nanny I have ever had! She made my kids so happy and they waited for her to arrive everyday. Ruby would take my kids to the park, get them ice cream, and let my kids convince her to play any game🤣 I just became a stay-at-home mom, so I no longer need a nanny. Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions on Ruby, but I would 100% recommend!!"

"ANNA IS AMAZING! Such a kind girl. I have 4 kids, she has been watching my littles for 2 years, and does an amazing job with my newborn! I feel so comfortable leaving her home with my kiddos, she really does it all! From laundry, to dishes, crafts, food, activities, down time, etc! I have to say she the most intuitive, engaging, patient and reliable nanny I’ve had. My little ones look forwarding to spending time with her she will do anything to put a smile on their face! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions 😊"

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

Downers 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.
