My childcare experience consists of 7 years of babysitting along with almost 4 years in the child care business. I have enjoyed every minute of my experience working with children, and it has been nothing but positive. It has always been about helping children learn and develop in life. Also, the children I have worked with have ranged from infant to 12 years old, and every single one has always put a smile on my face. My passion for children has really been of great benefit as well.

I have been babysitting since I was about 12 years old, but I have been a nanny for the past 3 years. At first, I began watching younger cousins (ages 1-5), then children of family friends (ages 4-13), and then began finding babysitting and nanny positions online. Although I have been a live-out nanny, I would definitely consider live-in. My duties have consisted of getting children ready for school, some light housework, doing laundry, taking care of pets, helping with homework, meal prep (usually just breakfast and lunch), engaging arts and crafts, etc.

I have always loved being around children, starting when my cousins were very young. I began by helping out watching my cousins at family gatherings. At the age of 11 I began babysitting for neighbors. Over the years I have babysat for a number of families in my town, with ages ranging from infants to middle school age. Through college I nannied part-time for a family with 3 children, beginning when they had 2 children (4 years and 3 months old) and ending when their 3rd child 3 years old. After my job with the Montalvo family had ended, I worked part-time at Target for 6 months, then sought out another nanny position. I began working for the Shields in March of 2011, when their son was 7 weeks old, and have been working for them full-time to date. They are moving out of state because of work and to be closer to family, so this is why I am seeking a new position.

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

New Lenox 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.
