A little bit about me…

Hi! I am a nanny with around 7 years of experience working with kids. I've worked in all types of setting from daycare centers to nanny positions to backup care and even school settings. I have worked with all ages as well, from newborns to 14-year-olds. My favorite age is 2-6 because I love helping with early childhood development. I've done so many different levels of care for families with different needs. Some ask for help around the house, some ask for help with homework and some even need help with all aspects of a child's life from doctor appointments to navigating school life. I just moved to Oak Park and I'm excited to find the right job for me!

A little bit about me…

Well, I’m Daniela , I’m 23 years old and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do in life, but Ive always been really good with children because I guess you could say I’m a child at heart, I’m a very kind, funny, bubbly , but not too bubbly personality, I am also very respectful , gentle and stern when I need to be because I believe when dealing with children there needs to be a good balance of both in order to have a strong, loving and healthy relationship

A little bit about me…

Hi, my name is Uriah! I’ve been taking care of and working with children since I was 10 years old, and I absolutely love it! I started off babysitting my nieces and nephew, and then began working as a sitter for families around my neighborhood. I’ve worked primarily with children between infant and pre-teen ages. Depending on the weather, I like to take kids out to the park, for a snack, or just for a regular walk around the neighborhood. I also like to have non-scheduled, indoor dance parties, ensuring that they have the most fun, while staying healthy and active. In my free time, I like to watch movies, read, write, workout, and create music! :)

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

Oak Park 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.
