Hi My Name is Valentina, I’m 26 and I’m from Italy. I’ve always loved hanging out with children, they are so full of amazing energy and such a joy to be around. In 2017 I had an incredible experience as an au pair in Chicago and I became passionate about children because you can learn a lot from them, like how to enjoy the simple things in life. During my au pair experience I took care of 2 sweet children, a boy and a girl, I became their big sister and we are still in touch with each other. I have been working with children for the past 4 years and I’m so excited to work as a nanny!

I used to nanny for my neighbors daughter in the summer and after school. I would help her with homework, cook her dinner, take her on walks and bike-rides. I also have two nephews and a niece that I babysit all the time. I have been watching them since they were born so I have experience with all ages. I currently just went to Florida to nanny for them for a month. I also nanny-ed for a family with 3 young boys ages 2, 5 and 7. I watched them for about 6 months while the mother finished teaching for the rest of the year.

As the second oldest in a family of 6, 3 brothers and 2 sisters, I have always been surrounded by young children and have truly enjoyed in helping my mother/father raise my brothers and sisters. Additionally, I have worked countless volunteer hours in the nursery at my local church over the years. Furthermore, I took on a nursery job while down at school. Here, I was privileged to work with children among all ages but primarily cared for children between the ages of 18 and 36 months. When I am not volunteering in the nursery or head deep in books studying, I baby-sit for local neighbors. I have nannied during summers and throughout the school years for a local family for nearly 6 years. This family graciously took me abroad for 3 weeks where I was a nanny for her 2 children. In addition to all the above, I have been a camp counselor at the YMCA. Here I coordinated daily activities for my campers such as unique, fun, outdoor games, swimming pool games, and creative art projects. Overall, I am very outgoing, active, and enjoy entertaining children of all ages. School is very important to me and as such, I try to encourage the children to do activities in workbooks that develop reading comprehension, math and science skills. Despite my allergies, I enjoy outdoor activities such as bike riding, roller skating and my favorite, picnics. I am truly passionate about caring for a parents most prized possession.

I am currently working as a substitute teacher during the school year and am looking for a full time summer nannying position. I am studying my Masters in elementary education, so I am a full time student but not taking classes this summer. I have taken additional classes in Physical Education and Spanish as I am very interested in these subjects and hope to eventually teach one or both of them at some point. I have worked with children for about 6 years on and off through college. I have worked as a camp counselor with Adler Day Camp and Grayslake Park District during the summers in years past. As a camp counselor I had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of ages spanning between 5-14 years old. I have also volunteered during the summer as a softball coach for girls between the ages of 9-11. While in my undergraduate degree, I studied abroad in Australia and worked as a nanny for 3 Australian girls ages 7, 11, and 14. I have also had the opportunity to nanny full time for two weeks during another nanny’s leave of absence. I cared for 1 year old twins, both a boy and a girl. All of these jobs I have enjoyed as I really love working with kids. These are just a few of the many experiences I have had with children. I have babysat for all age ranges and I really believe that they all have their benefits. The teacher in me really enjoys showing children new things to learn and do so I would say I am most comfortable with those over the age of 5. As a caregiver, I believe it is important for children to eat healthy and be involved in exercise. I also think it is very important for them to have fun, smile, laugh and enjoy being a kid. I love playing games with kids!! My favorite games to play are ones in which they have a lot of fun and learn something!! In one of my PE classes I loved teaching lessons that integrated other subjects into a PE game that was really fun and allowed kids to learn while being physically active!!! I love working with kids of all ages and look forward to hopefully being able to influence at least one child’s life this summer!!!

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

Mundelein 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.
