I am a mother of 3 children myself. I am currently enrolled at Oakton community college in the process of completing my associates in Early Childhood Education. I have reliable transportation and a current drivers license. I am enthusiastic, funny and see my patience level as a my best attribute. I am creative and think outside of the box when it comes to activities and plans for the children's day. I am a motivated, reliable and dedicated individual that also sees myself as a great role model. I love watching children grow and the light in their eyes as they learn through play and everyday interaction. I enjoy reading books, writing and pretty much anything outdoors. I am an avid photographer with year’s experience photographing children and families. I enjoy being creative, and as a teacher, my favorite part of the day would be planning new arts and crafts activities for the kids.

Trina M.

She is compassionate, disciplined and amazing with children. She is constantly teaching the children important life skills and independence while caring for them. She essential in helping me through a transition from 2 to 3 children (and kept me sane!). She is great with children of all ages, from newborn and up. Highly recommended! - Heidi

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

Skokie 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.
