Hello, my name is Mary and I will be a freshman at Olivet Nazarene University this upcoming fall. I have been babysitting for 5 years and I am currently looking for a summer job; particularly to be nannying! I have worked at Jewel and Panera but I want to work with kids this summer since I will be going to college to pursue a degree in nursing; specially pediatrics. I love babies and kids which would be great if you have young children. I have my own car. I do not vape/smoke/drink. I have a dog so I don't mind pets but I am allergic to cats. I am an active runner so being active with your toddler wouldn't be a problem for me! I would also love to be a returning nanny/babysitter for your family!
I hope to hear from you soon! I’d be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone. Looking forward to hearing from you and I wish you the best of luck with your search!!

As an experienced babysitter of four years, I certainly loved the experience. When I first started, two of the children were 6 and 8. I have experience with infant children because of one of babies I babysat as well. After 2 years, the family expanded with another new born baby boy and I watched over him as well. The types of duties I attended to were things such as; cooking meals (lunch or dinner), feeding the baby, putting them to bed, changing diapers etc. I would also watch over them while the older kids swam, and sometimes I would even swim with the kids If the infants were with their mother.

Tova K.

My son adored Tova. She loved to do creative projects with him, like painting and making crafts. Her caring went beyond just doing a job. She really kept him engaged. Her face would just light up when she saw him. She was also vigilant with his safety and took him on many outings. We continue to appreciate her thoughtful care of him. - Heather

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in West Chicago, IL

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

West Chicago Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in West Chicago? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in West Chicago?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in IL? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

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 prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!
