I have over 20 years experience with children aged 2 -10. I have been a nanny for three families, have taught pre-school and children’s art classes at our local park district. I have been a site supervisor for before and after school programs.
I love the daily interaction with children, especially reading, art and nature inspired activities. I believe children are happiest with firm boundaries coupled with fun and curiosity. I am currently available to work any hours needed and look forward to talking about your family’s needs.

I have had 10+ years of child care experience between family, friends and other child care jobs. I am a Vocal Performance major in school about to finish up my degree. While I am in the process of auditioning, I am looking for a child care job that will allow me to fulfill my love of children and creativity. I always try to have games and other creative activities for the children to do. I am comfortable with taking children to activities. I would love to help out with housework as well as cooking. I have a background in early childhood education, so if any homework or tutoring is needed, I can provide this as well. I previously worked at a xx Center where I provided math and reading tutoring to children ages 3-17. After that, I was employed by a child's gym where I was a Play and Music teacher for newborn to 5 years old focusing on music and physical development. I am currently a photographer at a Portrait Studio in xx and photograph children of all ages. As you can see, I have extensive background in working with children and would be an asset to providing childcare for families.

Violet I.
St. Charles$14.28/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I began babysitting for children in my neighborhood when I was 14 after I took the first aid and babysitting course at the local community center. I enjoyed watching my neighbors children so much I voluteered to work in the nursery at my church. This led to many babysitting jobs through the parents of the children I watched and played with every Sunday. I began nannying for one of the couples during summer taking their children to soccer, the local pool, we would have field trip days and go to the park and have picnics, go to waterparks, etc. I am 24 now but have babysat since I was 14 and thoroughly enjoy the experience from assisting reading books, playing outside, to learning new interests of the children being cared for.

Erika F.

Erika worked for us for almost a year, and sat our three children Baron (12), Adelyn (8), and Andrew (1). She was outstanding! Very artistic, my daughter loved drawing with her and doing crafts, and both boys enjoyed playing video games with her. She drove the kids to and from school Monday-Friday, and was great with communicating. - Brent

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

St. Charles 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.
