Lake in the Hills$13/hr  |  6 yrs experience
Hi, my name is Caroline! I'm currently a senior at Illinois State University majoring in Special Education! I've been working with kids since I was 15 and love it. I first started helping my aunt at her at-home daycare, watched my younger brother, and then began babysitting for kids in our neighborhood. It takes a big heart to help shape little minds. Ever since I was a little girl I've always known that I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. I love kids of all ages! If it's nice out, I like to take the kids outside, but if not, I'm always ready to get silly and have a dance party :) I love animals, working out, watching sports, being outdoors, traveling around the world, and cooking. I am a responsible, trustworthy, and reliable person that considers each day working with children a new adventure and look forward to meeting you and your kid(s)!

I am a college student home for the summer looking for a fun job that will give me experience with children. I also love animals and spend my free time with my dog Vino at the dog park. I really enjoy any sort of outdoor activities as well! I have a swimming pool that I like to tan at with all my friends when we are home for the summer. I have great experience with cleaning since I have my own list of daily chores at home I have to complete.

I started babysitting at the age of 12 for a few families I met through church when I assisted in the childcare service. I have always felt most comfortable and happy working with children because I believe they have so much to offer. I have been an opportunity babysitter meaning I babysit whenever a family has a date night or some conflict. I am now looking for more options and positions. I have babysat one family in particular consistently through the birth of their two children. I have been certified in CPR, most recently last summer. I worked kids camps through my high school and in college through when I was on the volleyball team.

My career revolves around children! I sustained myself throughout high school and college by babysitting for a few wonderful families (of whom I've grown attached to, over the years). Additionally, I taught swim lessons and coached soccer during my late high school and college years. In college, I majored in education (2009 Augustana graduate). I taught in a public school district full-time for two years (2009-2010 and 2010-2011) and now I am preparing for entrance into graduate school for Occupational Therapy. I am taking this year "off" to study for the GRE, take a few night classes, and prepare for admittance into a full-time, two or three year masters or doctorate program.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Lake in the Hills, 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 Lake in the Hills can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Lake in the Hills 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.
