I am a loving, caring, and kind person. I have been taking care of kids for a long time. From taking care of my younger sister, who had special needs, to helping my aunts take care of their children while they worked. I have helped raised four amazing little cousins. It's a passion of mine to help, teach, and nurture a child to grow and learn about the world around us. Growing up in a big family has taught me that it really does take a village to raise one. I want the family I work with to know their children are in excellent hands with me. Being in this field requires a lot of trust from individuals like myself. That is one of my top priorities. Recently, I've been at home raising my two children, and taking care of my two nephews. Since my youngest child is of school age, I am looking forward to helping a family in need.

My grandma runs a daycare from her home,and I was employed to be her assistant. My duties were to help prepare food, change diapers, read with the children, and put them down for their daily nap. The reason I had to stop working there was because I went away to college. I have also baby-sat many times for my cousins as well as family friends.

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

Waukegan 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.
