I have been babysitting children for 6 years. Children between ages of newborn to 12 years.

A bit more about me,
I am moderately skilled in infant care, with extensive knowledge of educational activities that stimulate physical, social, and cognitive development. I worked at a math and reading tutoring center called KUMON for about 6 years where my responsibilities included tutoring kids of all ages by using educational activities to stimulate physical, social, and cognitive development.

**Comfortable using safety precautions in case of emergency, and finally, feeding techniques.( I know how hard it is to trust your baby in the hands of a stranger you just met.

I am a University of Cincinnati student looking for a nannying job in Chicago! I love kids of any ages and I love spending time getting to know and bonding with kids. I am currently 19 years old and living in Clifton, OH. I have grown up in Cincinnati my whole life, and I have nannied for the past 2 summers, and I love it! I also have a younger sister, so I am very experienced with both teenagers, and young kids. I am looking for a change of scenery, however, and looking to get outside of Cincinnati, yet still get to do what I love- which is nannying! I also am very organized, so I do not mind meal prepping and getting the house together during the day. I am very interactive and outgoing, and I would love to find a family with these same qualities. If you have any further questions, please message me and ask!

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Elk Grove Village, 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 Elk Grove Village can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Elk Grove Village 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.
