Besides having a 6 year old son of my own I grew up in a fairly large family and am the oldest child. Being the oldest child meant babysitting all the younger children in my family on a regular basis. I completed a babysitting course at the age of 13 through the local park district and began babysitting our Village Presidents children ranging from ages 1-8. I babysat for him and his family for 4 years until his wife was able to stay home full time. I am a licensed EMT in the State of Illinois. I currently work in an Alzheimer's and Dementita Memory Care Unit taking care of 22 residents on my own. This alone is babysitting experience!

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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. Due to me starting a new job I decided to place my daughter in a daycare. But she adores Miss Kate! - Randi

Kate S.

We have used Kate for many years as an occasional sitter. She is amazing with all my kids ages 2-10. They always have so much fun with her and we never have any worries when they are in her care. Two of our kids even took swim lessons with her as their instructor. I can’t recommend Kate enough and will continue to use her as our date night sitter ! . - Jennifer

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

Oswego 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.
