Hi there. I have experience in the medical field as a Nurse Care Technician for over 8 years. I wired as a live in care taker for 4 years during that time. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I myself have two children. My daughter now 12 and my son is 11! I just finished up being a single leader for my Girl Scout troop for 4 years with some of the greats girls. I’ve been married for 18 years and now that my children are older I’m looking to head back into the working world. I have experience with ADHD children and special needs children as well. They hold a special place in my heart and my cousin also has special needs.
I’m available Monday through Friday. Hours are flexible and I’d be happy to watch your child in my home or in your home. I’d also like to add that I am very crafty, love reading and cooking and being outside.

I am graduating this May with a Master's Degree in Speech Language Pathology. This major has provided me with numerous classes in child development, language development, and early childhood education. I have a variety of experience in the field through internships working with children and plan to work with kids for my career. I have nannied every summer during highschool for a neighbor family with 2 young girls ages 7 and 9. I coordinated play dates, drove them to summer activities, handled meals, light cleaning, etc. This was a full time summer job. I have also babysat for various families in high school who needed help. I also watch an infant occasionally and have since he was born. I am currently a speech language pathologist at a primary school where I work with early childhood and kindergarten aged kiddos.

My past childcare experiences have been good. I have learned a lot working with the families. Most of the families I have worked for, I have been able to watch the kids grow up. Everyone always says kids grow up so fast, and it is true. They are all grown up in the blink of an eye. When I first started babysitting, it was for the families in my neighborhood. They are all great kids, and I love that I have been able to watch them grow and change, as they have gotten older. Some of them are now too old to be babysat, and now we have a different relationship. One that is based more on a friendship than an authority figure. Then my neighbors started recommending me to his/her friends. Some of those situations turned out good, and others did not. I think it is important for the families to find a babysitter/nanny that fits in perfectly with the family. Otherwise the relationship between everyone will be strained. Over the years, I have learned to work well under stressful situations, be slow to anger or frustration, and to be easy-going. I have worked with a wide variety of age groups, each requiring their own needs and responsibilities.

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

Libertyville 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.
