Nurse..looking to go back to working with my favorite group of people...CHILDREN. I was nanny throughout nursing school. I've spent the last 20 yrs working as a nurse in various settings. I've always dreamed to return to working with children. Its not about the money but rather my passion.

For the past 3 years I worked as daycare teacher. I mostly worked in the infant room( 6 week old babies to the age of 18 months) however, I was also trained and would help other rooms when staff numbers were low. In addition, I wanted to provide the best care possible to the infants I had in my care so I completed 120 hours of ECE classes and a yearly course of CPR and First Aid

I worked for a family where I took care of two children, but they relocated back to London. I fell in love with the family and the job and discovered how great I was with children. I also was a nanny for a little girl, age 3. I fed and played with her while she was awake, and during the nap time I did light housekeeping. Then I was babysitting with newborn for a few months. Last time I worked with a nice family with a 9 year old girl. I helped her with homework, and was driving her to school or dancing classes. I'm looking for a nice and welcoming family, and I will be glad to help you with children and the household.

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

Palatine 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.
