I have a lot of experience babysitting. I was also a nanny for one summer for a 1 year old boy, and last summer I was the nanny for a 7 year old and a 10 year old. I also have experience working with a child who had been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.

I began my nanny experience with a wonderful family that I've remained close with ever since. After graduating with a degree in elementary education, I was in the process of looking for a teaching position when I came across a position as a nanny. It was a true blessing. I had the pleasure of caring for two fantastic girls who kept me busy and laughing all day long. I was responsible for driving them to school and appointments, helping them complete school projects/assignments, looking after the family pets, miscellaneous household chores, and anything else needed by the family. The mother expressed how much their family enjoyed my presence in the home and praised my efficiency. The family had hired me strictly for after school care and the mother urged me to pursue my teaching career, which I have been doing for the past two years. I continued to care for the children much after I attained the teaching position as they attended the same school in which I taught! I am still contacted to house sit for the family periodically.

The three families I have nannied for, I had the same responsibilities. I play, read, bath, cook, feed, help with homework and occasionally take them to school. The current two families I nanny for will not need child care over the summer. The kids ages are 5,5,4,3, and 1 years old. I honestly love the children I care for so much. I love watching them grow and helping them learn new things.

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

Joliet 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.
