My past childcare experience was pleasant to say the very least. I cared for my younger siblings (6 younger than me; ages ranging from infant-16) as well as their friends, neighbors and other family members. I am also the mother of a beautiful and smart 4 year old. I find it truly rewarding to teach them new things, new books, new games and songs. I almost felt guilty receiving a paycheck because we had so much fun. I've always loved children and enjoy being apart of their everyday lives.

I have been baby sitting for eleven years. I very much enjoy taking care of children and hope one day to be a mother of my own little ones.

As the oldest of four children, I have been taking care of kids all my life. I started babysitting outside of my family when I was 12 and have been doing it for families in my neighborhoods and churches ever since. I have been employed by two different day cares and have experience working with children of all ages. I do child care and teach Sunday school at church. My most hands on childcare experience happened when I was 16-17 years old. My youngest sister was born and I helped my mom out a lot. Then when she was 15 months old, my mom had to have hip replacement surgery at the same time that my dad broke his foot. I took care of my baby sister and the rest of the family for quite a while and learned more at that time of my life than at any other.

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

Wheeling 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.
