Hello! I’m looking for some experience in childcare because I’d like to one day become a Pediatric Nurse.
I’m currently a lifeguard and I’m looking to switch to a job in childcare. I’m also a certified nursing assistant with some experience in caring for the elderly. I’m CPR and First aid certified, and I have lots of younger siblings and cousins who I’ve helped look after since a young age. I don’t have any experience with paid childcare but I have to start somewhere! Please reach out if I sound like a good candidate and hopefully we can meet to see if I’d be a good fit for your family!!

Danielle B.
Round Lake Heights$17.14/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
My name is Danielle and I am twenty-two years old and have been a nanny for seven years. I'm currently enrolled in school to get my associates, but I take online or night class. School will not affect the work week. I have a clean driving/criminal record. I drive a 2011 Chevy Cruze that fits three in the back. For my past families I have worked with multiple children or all ages including infants and teenagers. A typical day consists of waking kids up, getting them dress, make breakfast, and brush teeth/hair.Drop-offs/pick-ups from school and activities. I have done household work as well including dishes, vacuuming, sweeping, weekly laundry, running errands and basic straightening up at the end of the day. Playing, crafts, reading, playing outside, and planning activities throughout the week.

Starting at 14 years old, I volunteered at a local day care assisting the teachers in any age group. I was also very active in babysitting locally throughout those years and continuing through my teenage years. After high school I became involved in a nannying/babysitting situation with a family that I became very close with. I would watch the children about 3 times a week and any other chance I could get. Unfortunately the father was re-located with his job but I am still in contact with them on a weekly basis. During high school and into my college courses, I was involved in the Big Brother's Big Sister's program. I loved being a member of the program because I was able to be one-on-one with a child in need to benefit her life and help her overcome any problems she had.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Round Lake Heights, 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 Round Lake Heights can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Round Lake Heights 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.
