I have been helping my sister with her children for the last 5 years. I started with both of them since they were first born. When the weather is nice I take them outside to the park or swimming, when it is cold outside I find some board games or indoor activities for us. I also clean the house and make homemade breakfast lunch and dinner and healthy snacks throughout the day.

I was a nanny for six years for a family of four boys and three dogs. That family has taught me how to bring a family together and work together as a team. We were on a set schedule, with naps, eating, play time and learning time. Their family became my family as they welcomed me into their home to take care of their 4 boys! I helped teach 3 of them to walk, talk, spell their names, potty trained and be respectful. It was the best experience I've had as a nannying.

I have a large family, including twin sisters whom I am five years older than. My whole life I was a "built-in babysitter"! Babysitting was my first job and by far my favorite. I studied communications and sociology in college, focusing on family studies. While my experiences after college have led me to management positions, the recent passing of my mother has convinced me that life is too short to not do what you love; and for me it is helping assist others by caring for the ones they love! I realize that this Q&A is not enough to thoroughly cover my qualifications, so please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to meeting you!

Kate was so great with my daughter. She sang songs with her, took her on walks, played with her and read her books. My daughter always asked about Kate and always sang the songs she would sing together. Still to this day my daughter asks about Kate. Due to me starting a new job I decided to place my daughter in a daycare. But she adores Miss Kate! - Randi

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

Streamwood 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.
