Hi my name is Aeden, I’m a 18 year old kid and I’ve lived out in glen ellyn for about four years now and I’m very familiar with the area. I’ve been watching my two siblings since I was nine and nowadays I watch my neighbors kids who are 2 and 11. I’ve also had other experiences babysitting in the past with people around the area so I’ve had many experiences with kids and taking care of them. If you’re interested in contacting me please do you won’t regret it!

I am a college student looking for a summer nannying job! I have been a babysitter since 2013, and have loved every minute of it. Every family I babysat for is unique, and it is so interesting to get to familiarize myself with such incredible kids :)

I have provided families with childcare for many years. Some families I would babysit occasionally, other families needed me more often (in a nanny sense). I worked for a few families anywhere from 4 to 10 years (during high school, college and after college). The children ranged from 1 to 13 years old. While earning my college degree in elementary education I have gained important skills and experience that add to my ability to handle and watch over kids.

I raised three successful children of my own--27 year old software engineer son in Chicago, 25 year old public relations daughter in New York, and youngest daughter, 19, is a sophmore in college, and had a full-scholarship for the first year and summer school because of superior academic, sports and philanthropic achievement. (I'm very close to my own children.) I was a school teacher for 12 years, pre-school to 8th grade, and I've taught swimming to babies up to adults. I was the head of a camp for children that included swimming, gymnastics, tennis, music and art. I've babysat for all ages of children, from babies to 12 year olds, from the time I was 12 years old myself to now. I've tutored reading and math, and have worked in gifted programs, as well as individualized teaching programs to target each child's unique learning, emotional and physical abilities. I love children, and they seem to love me, too!

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

Glen Ellyn 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.
