Jordan Hamilton
Normal$10/hr  |  2 yrs experience
My name is Jordan and I’ve been babysitting/nannying for as long as I can remember. From a very young age I knew I wanted to pursue an education with children. I have a 9 year old sister who I’ve been helping watch her whole life, not to mention numerous cousins and family friends who turn to me when they need a babysitter. I love being active and finding activities/projects to fit each kids needs and wants!
Caroline Slezak
Normal$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)!
Brittany Lurz
Normal$10/hr  |  1 yrs experience
Hi I'm Brittany, I am a transfer sophomore at ISU majoring in social work. A little about me; I am about to turn 20, I have my own car here, I'm an optimistic hard worker, my hobbies include hiking, baking, hanging with friends, and listening to podcasts. I started working with kids in middle school helping babysit and then throughout Highschool. After Highschool i worked at a daycare for little over a year. At the daycare I was an assistant float teacher, so I worked in every room which ranges from 6 weeks to 6 years old. I loved it so much, the kids and the experience I've gained, although because of Covid I think it's in my best interest to not work in a daycare setting and rather with a family. I'm super excited for the opportunity to work one on one with a family.With the kids I like to do many activities such as, arts and crafts, baking, puzzles, building, playing outside, homework (or virtual learning) and my personal favorite dance parties! I look forward to hearing from you!

Kate was so great with my daughter. She sang songs with her, took her on walks, played with her and read her books. My daughter always asked about Kate and always sang the songs she would sing together. Still to this day my daughter asks about Kate.

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

Normal 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.
