Hi my name is Lauren. I am a senior at the local high school. I have been working at my local synagogue as a teacher's assistant for four years now and have experience with newborns to preteens. I also have experience with kids with special needs. I also worked at a day camp this summer so I know how to keep kids occupied for a long time without technology. I'm just looking to do something I love to help fund my gap year program in the fall. I love animals and I'm not allergic to any.

I have been a nanny for ten years and I have loved every experience I have had. I have had the privilege of meeting several children who I grew to love very much. I can't think of anything I'd rather do and I'm very grateful for the bonds this job has provided. I am very reliable, patient, loving, silly and responsible. I love being silly and having fun, but I also understand the importance of discipline to teach respect and boundaries. In my free time, I like to read, do yoga, spend time with friends, travel, and go to concerts. I love being outside and being in nature and I LOVE animals. I have an interest in the mental health field (I worked in a group home for three years) and I always try to mindful of the importance of taking care of yourself and the people around you.

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.
