My past experience was nannying for three children while the parents were at work. Twin infant girls and a 3 year old boy. I prepared meals, played educational games, potty trained, went on excursions, drove to dr. appointments, and was available at additional times when requested by the family.

Do you need someone to watch your school-aged children over summer break while you work? Or, do you want your little ones to enjoy the summer away from daycare? During the summer months, I will babysit your children on a regular basis or occasionally as needed. I am available to work full-time or part-time hours. I am very flexible and can work with your schedule (even if it isn't consistent week to week).

Before I came to the States as an au-pair, I worked in a daycare as a teachers aid for a year. I also worked there the last couple visits back home while I was visiting my family. When I came to the states, I first worked for a family with 5 children ages one to eleven. I stayed with them for 3 years and they are like family for me now. After I had my son, I started work for a family with a baby girl, and she happend to be the same age as my son. They were able to grow up togheter for 15 months before we moved to Illinois.After we moved to illinois i started to work in a family with one babygirl,i stayed with them till june 2010.my second son was born last november and in february I got lucky to find a nice family with two kids unfortunately they deceidet to have family helping them out after some financial problems.so we are hoping to find some nice family again to be part of.

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

Grayslake 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.
