Im Dana. I'm 27 years old and have been a nanny/babysitting on and off since I was 16. I have some free time and would love to help out where/when needed! My sister is also a full time nanny and I have spent many days with her and her families. I love to watch the bond they have formed!
Jordan Miller
Elmhurst$15/hr  |  6 yrs experience

I am a college graduate from DePaul University with two sisters aged 4 and 6 who I have played a large role in raising from birth. I additionally was a long term nanny for two children who no longer are at an age where they require care.

I have extensive experience working within my community and volunteered for many years through Big Brothers Big Sisters, mentoring special needs children.

I am very passionate about child development and wholeheartedly believe that reading, writing and singing to children is so crucial in aiding their growth and communication skills. I love working on crafts and science projects with my two young sisters, and work to also promote strong emotional support. Mental health is a topic I care deeply about and something I feel we do not look at enough when wondering how to best help support our young ones. Therefore I feel that instilling confidence, curiosity and empathy at an early age is crucial in helping children grow up healthy and happy.

I live in Elmhurst off of St. Charles Road and would love to set up an interview if you're interested. Looking forward to hearing from you!

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

Elmhurst 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.
