Plainfield$10/hr  |  4 yrs experience
I have always loved kids. Each one has remarkable qualities and are delightful to be with.
I dedicated my life to child Nutrition in schools. Later I branched out and worked in a Day care center at Chesterbrook Academy in Plainfield. I took care of from newborns all the way to 13 years old. This gave me a broad base of knowledge working with the special needs of each age group. I also received special training.
In summary your child would be safe well cared for and loved.

Hello my name is Peyton. I'm an 18 year old high school graduate. Throughout high school I interned at our in-school preschool, becoming the leader of the entire pre-school by my senior year. I spent many months nannying for a family of 4 including a child of cerebral palsy. This past summer I was a live in nanny for a family with 2 children. One under 6 months old and 2 years. I love being outdoors, cooking, going on adventures and animals. I am currently the assistant manager at my local Starbucks but would much rather work with children full time! I have reliable transportation and am willing to travel up to 20 miles each day. I look forward to talking to you :)

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

Plainfield 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.
