A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Ms.Anita! I'm 29 years old, and I've been a career nanny for the last 6 years! I have experience with children of all ages, but specialize in toddlers. That's probably because im just a giant child with bills! Haha. I was with my last nanny family for 3 years. I still see them often. One of my nanny children was neurodivierse. I worked hand in hand with his behavioral therapist team, and learned so much! Being a nanny is not just a job for me. It's a passion. I come from a large family. I have 6 siblings, 3 nieces, 5 nephews, and one 6 year old myself! My parents fostered over 40 children while we were growing up so that is where this love of caretaking comes from. Two of my sisters are also nannies. Its in our blood! Haha. I come with years of experience, glowing references, and so much love to give. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks!
Am not currently cpr/first aid certified but have no issue getting certified.

"What made Anita such a good nanny was that she puts her whole heart into her profession. She’s by the far the best baby sitter I’ve ever had. She’s so patient with my two year old daughter. My daughter always comes home clean, fed, and happy. She’s not had an injury or illness in the year that we’ve been going to Anita. Anita has checked in with me throughout the day since day 1. I’m a new mom and always ask questions. She’s always happy to help and suggests exercises to do with my daughter to help with any concerns I may have. My daughter absolutely loves her. She’ll be your child’s favorite person and your dream come true. I recommend her to anyone any chance I have."

A little bit about me…

Hello, my name is Jen.

I am a mother of one, but I have raised many kiddos throughout the years. I have been a nanny for years, then I opened a in-home preschool when I had my own daughter. I have been teaching second grade at a local private school for the last two years. I am looking for a change of pace and would like to nanny kiddos again.

I have a BA in ELA education. I love all things science, nature, history, math and READING. I am a wonderful tutor in all subjects. I love making fun and healthy meals with kiddos. I think it is important to educate kiddos about nutrition and how our bodies work.

I am a very organized, I love planning, and I keep things tidy.

I am looking for a family in need of part-time, nanny sharing or full-time. I am available to work days, and afterschool hours, but I would like to be home to make my family dinner and put my daughter to bed myself.

I am looking forward to meeting the family in need of my love and support. Have a great day!

Experienced nanny with a nurturing and bubbly personality.
Caring for others is my passion, and I have been doing this for over 5 years. I worked as a behavior therapist for children with autism for over a year, and transition into professional nannying about 3 years ago.
I excel in communication, patience, and being able to work learning into playtime. I can help with milestones, emotions, and much more.
I love being outside and staying active with my kiddos, going to parks, libraries, and if parents have signed up, fun classes!
I am very down to earth and calm, and can handle any tough situation with ease and comfort.
I am looking for my next long term family, I just relocated to the rockford area.
I am looking for full-time work, and i’d love to hear from you to see if we’re a good match. Looking forward to chatting and becoming apart of your family!

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

Rockford 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.
