Woodstock$15/hr  |  8 yrs experience
My name is Rachel, I am currently a student at the University Of Tampa, majoring in psychology. I LOVE working with kids; I've babysat/nannied children ages 3 mo. to 12 years over the past five years. I was a teacher in a preschool program for three years. I also worked as an associate in special ed classrooms, so I'm able to adapt to the different needs of kids. I'm prepared to assist kids with their homework, provide transportation, cook, clean and keep them entertained. I am comfortable around all pets, I love them as much as the kids. A day on the job may consist of meal prep, tutoring, and playing games! I'm always there for your kids, whenever you need me. I'm energetic, flexible, and responsible. I'm your girl!

Hello! My name is Tammy. I have been working in the Early Childhood Education field for 15 years. I began as a Home Daycare Provider for the military. I was awarded Provider of the Year 2 times. I worked as a Room Lead at a couple of different child care centers. I was a nanny for a family in Colorado and for another family in Illinois. I was also a Preschool Director/Lead Teacher at a school for 4 years. I was awarded Director of the Year during this time. I have experience with all age groups from newborn to 14 years of age. I am First Aid and CPR certified. I also have a Child Development Associate (CDA). I moved to Woodstock, IL in July and currently am employed at a childcare center in McHenry, but really miss the one on one interaction as a babysitter/Nanny. I love working with children and am looking for a full-time, long-term, and year-round employment with a wonderful family. I am also available for occasional weekend evening or overnight weekend care in my home. Please feel free to contact me at any time to see if I might be a good fit for you and your family. Thank you for your time!

Dear Prospective Family, I am writing to you in excitement and hopes you will accept my enthusiastic application for the Nanny position available. This would be my very first Nanny position and I am absolutely thrilled to finally start doing something I am truly passionate about. Over the years I have gained a favorable amount of Child Care experience starting in High School babysitting for relatives and close family friends. I have experience with children ages infant to 18 years and a total of about 8 years of Child Care under my belt. However nothing compares to the experience I have as a mother of my 5 year old son. I genuinely realize how important everything is in our children's lives such as the things they learn, the people that influence them, there safety, the time they enjoy, the love they share, and how they need someone to inspire there creative minds and direct them to grow into respectable people. I attended Child Care classes at Tri-County pregnancy and parenting services out of Crystal Lake, IL. They covered absolutely everything there is to know about all ages of children including CPR and emergency situations. I also worked as Supervisor at a cleaning company in Mchenry, IL for almost 2 years and loved it. I have been preparing meals for my family for about 10 years, and I don't mean to boast but I am a very good cook thanks to my Italian heritage. I have tutored younger children on basic materials but if tutoring is needed and I am not familiar with the subject thoroughly the child and I will be learning together which I believe will strengthen our relationship and inspire them to want to learn more. I am used to running a fast paced household so there is really nothing I cannot handle. When it comes to my work I am extremely mature and professional. I am looking forward to providing my potential family with a safe, warm, loving, educational, and fun environment. I am extremely passionate about everything I put my heart into and am so excited to start the next chapter in my life as a Nanny. Sincerely, Nicole

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

Woodstock 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.
