I will be a sophomore at Campbellsville University in KY this coming fall. I wrestle on the national championship Women's Wrestling team at CU. I enjoy hanging out with my friends, coloring and sitting in my hammock reading books.

Hi! As the eldest of four, for my entire life, I have become very good at being Mom when she's gone. I've worked with all ages of kids in all different settings: babysitting, summer camp, after-school care, tutoring, etc. I love having fun with kids but I am very aware of the balance between fun and also providing a safe environment. My assertive personality enables me to be able to keep children within bounds while also understanding kids on their level. I am dedicated to providing parents with whatever help they may need around the house as well as childcare. I'm an excited and motivated individual who would be happy to help you!

South Elgin$12/hr  |  3 yrs experience

My names Taylor Bach and I am 25 years old. I have nannied and cared for over 4 different families during college and beyond.

I view being a nanny very seriously. I am looked up to, honest and have other people's children's lives in my hands.

I am a very outgoing, energetic, and compassionate young woman. When dealing with children I know how to have fun while maintaining appropriate boundaries.

With past families, I have done grocery shopping, meal preparation, laundry, car pools and have experience with multiples, and allergies. I also like to leave people's homes in better condition then when I arrived.

I have nannied and worked in the service industry but find nannying the most fulfilling-because I am able to positively impact the lives that surround me.

Finally, I am about 3 classes away from an Associates Degree at Elgin Community College; and working towards completing that.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Kids are a huge part of my life! Whether it’s cousins, neighbors, or family friends — babysitting has been a passion of mine since early high school. The two girls I have babysat the most are near and dear to my heart and luckily, they are cousins of mine so I’m still able to spend a lot of time with them :) There isn’t much better than hanging out with little ones!

I have cared for children for over 9 years. I worked in my church's nurseries for over 9 years. The nursery ranges from ages newborn to 3 years old. I am responsible for changing diapers, feeding, taking them to the bathroom, playing with them, and making sure that they stay happy. I have also been an occasional babysitter for over 4 years. The family that I was babysitting for most recently had 3 boys; ages 1, 4, and 7 years old. I loved watching them and we always had a great time playing games together and having fun. I was also a nanny for 2 girls; ages 10 and 12 years old. My responsibilities to them included homework help, cooking, light cleaning, transportation to various activities and sports, and general care. I absolutely love children and I love taking care of them!

I have been babysitting children since I was in high school. While in college, studying Childhood Education, I worked at a daycare and substituted in every room and later worked full time in the infant room. After college I got a job as a nanny for a family with 3 children and have worked for them for the past 4 years. Also, my husband and I recently had our first child so I am looking for a position that would allow me to bring him with me. I have many great references and love working with children of all ages!

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

South Elgin 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.
