BabySitting Services

Let our caring, highly qualified and well-trained babysitters care for your children ages six weeks and up in our fully equipped and comfortable babysitting room while you participate in our programs at the Community Recreation Center. A variety of recreation activities, along with loads of toys and books are available for playtime fun and ensures your children a safe and happy stay.

Reservations are not required, but can be made 24 hours in advance, between 9 a.m.-11:15 a.m., Monday through Friday, subject to space availability. Reservations are required for infants six weeks to 12 months of age. You may also register for a standing time slot for an entire session. When signing up for a standing time slot, participants must register the child (or youngest child if more than one child needs babysitting service) with a $10 registration fee, which will be applied toward the total fee.

Participants will be billed for the session based on their needs and availability, and must pay for the entire session on the first scheduled day. Participants are limited to two hours of babysitting per day up to a maximum of eight hours per week. Note: We cannot accept children under the age of six weeks. The Park District reserves the right to cancel your space for the session after three no-shows, or for non-payment of fees. For more information contact Babysitting at 847-256-9633 during babysitting hours.
