My name is Nicole. I have been babysitting for 7 years. I love out door activities and reading. I am very patient with kids and enjoy growing with them. Parents tend to have a lot of trust in me as time goes and ask for duties at home. I clean a little here and there. I take the kiddos to museums, parks, zoos, ice cream. As long as I have the parents permission.

I took care of an 11 year old boy with disabilities as well as two other children, 4 year old and a 7 year old. In addition, I took care of their mother who had huntington disease. I was a live in nanny five days a week who woke the children up for school made breakfast, did the car pooling as well as the shopping and household duties. for the past year an half I was a live-out nanny. I arrived at 8am and took over from there. During the school year I would help the kids get ready, feed them breakfast and walked them to the bus stop. During the time they were in school I took care of the youngest child we would play, cook and I also worked with him on speech, numbers, alphabet and potty training.

My experience working with children began at a young age when my baby brother was born. Because we are nine years apart, I gained a lot of experience helping my parents: changing diapers, feeding, and consoling a screaming baby. When high school came around, I began babysitting frequently on the weekends for neighborhood children and relatives. I got my first nanny job when I was eighteen, in which I looked after two girls who were nine and twelve for the duration of the summer. On most days, we enjoyed the pleasant weather playing in the backyard, riding bikes, getting ice cream, and going to the pool. In college, I began coaching volleyball for the Riverfront Bruisers. I coached for the 11 and under age group, teaching them fundamentals of volleyball and the importance of teamwork. Because I coached the same group of girls for my first two years of college, I had the pleasure of watching them develop as athletes and as young women. In the summer of 2014, I began working at Little Hands Learning Center. There, I worked primarily in the nursery, but bounced around the other classrooms when help was needed. I gained an immense knowledge of the needs of infants and how to care for multiple young children at one time. Another skill I have acquired from my time at Little Hands is hands on experience with children with disabilities. The two children I worked with were in inclusive classrooms with students their age. Because they are learning in this general education environment, it is easy for them to feel that they are behind the rest of their class and become frustrated. It was important that as their teacher, I made accommodations to their learning style and helped them succeed. I continued working at Little Hands for the past two years, working over the summer and on my breaks from school.

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

Oak Lawn 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.
