Geneva$10/hr  |  1 yrs experience
Hi! My name is Jae and I am a recent graduate of Portland State University where I studied International Studies and Conflict Resolution. Although I loved living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I'm so happy to be back in Geneva, IL where I grew up!
I have experience working as a lifeguard and children's swim instructor at Goldfish Swim School in St. Charles, IL. I have also been a summer camp counselor at Mountain Camp in Northern California for three summers. At camp, I worked with children aged 7-15 instructing outdoor activities like sailing, rock climbing, and nature crafts! For two summers I was a nanny for two boys aged 5 and 7, including one child with developmental disabilities.
I am passionate about caring for little ones and helping to create a positive, creative, and safe environment!

I first started looking after my sisters around age 11, as I am the oldest of three girls. My first babysitting job for another family was around 13, where I was in charge of a family party and 9 children. After that, I babysat pretty regularly for three-four families in my neighborhood, starting as infants and extending into 11 years of age. I started nannying 30 hours a week in the summers between school years in 2007.

I have been a babysitter for several families since I was thirteen. I grew up the oldest in a family of five kids, so I've always cared for younger siblings. Last summer, I was a nanny of an eight year old girl. I worked a few days a week from 8:00am to 6:00pm caring for her. I also took her to swimming lessons, parks, and museums. I cooked her meals and helped her with her summer school work.

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

Geneva 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.
