Hello! I have been around kids for as long as I can remember. I am the youngest of 7 children in my family and I have 11 nieces and nephews that I love taking care of and spending time with. I started babysitting/nannying when I was 12, and have always loved being around kids and watching them grow. I also babysit part time for multiple families, so if you need it, I have many references that I can provide you with! I was CPR/AED certified, but have not taken the certification exam in a few years, this is something I am definitely willing to retake if you feel more comfortable. I have experience with all ages from newborn babies to teenagers, I am comfortable with everything! I also have helped tutor the children of some of the families I nanny for.

I currently work at a daycare with children ranging in age from 6 weeks up until 12 years. I have worked there since February of 2007. Before that, however, I had babysat neighbors and other families since I was in eighth grade.

Education, professional opportunities, and personal experiences over the last 10 years have groomed me for a position working with young children. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Music. I worked two years as an infant caregiver for 4 infants at a child development center. After that, I worked for two years as an at-risk Pre-K teacher. I volunteer at children's museums and host literacy workshops for children. I am a committed educator to children and families.

I started babysitting for the two children next door when I was 13. At age 16, I babysat every Thursday night at my church for the children of the choir members during their weekly practice. During this time, I babysat up to 12 children at once varying in age from a few months old to about 14 years old. In summers while I was in high school, I was in charge of nursery care during my church's Vacation Bible School week. This involved coming up with fun activities for children under the age of 3. I also have worked in my church nursery on Sundays for about 5 years. I have babysat for a few local families for many years, and transported their children to and from events, such as band practices, with their vehicle. I have a clear driving record, and may possibly have access to a car this summer if necessary. Since I do not have one of my own and have to share with the other members of my family, this access may be limited. I really enjoy working with children of all ages.

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

Mokena 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.
