Loving, Responsible Nanny

Avg response < 4 hrs
Hi families! I am an elementary education major at Illinois State University. I have a huge heart for children of all ages and would love to help you and your family take care of your kids. I have experience with all ages from 15 months through teen years. I babysit for a few different families on occasion in my neighborhood. I have worked a summer dance camp at my local park district for two summers. I have nannied for 4 families in the past years, most recently last summer I nannied for a 15-month-old and a 3-year-old and had an absolute blast with them. I love to take kids on adventures, but also get creative in the house. I am currently home for the summer in Des Plaines, but work at a daycare when I am at school. I have a few references that I would for you to reach out to if you consider having me watch your child/ children. I look forward to hearing from some of you soon and I hope that everyone is staying safe!

I wish I needed two nannies so that I could hire Nataley back to take care of our kids again! Nataley took care of our kids full-time last summer when they were three years old and one year old. She's one of the sweetest, most caring, patient and fun people I know. I never had any concern that they were in the best of care, and she went out of her way to plan fun activities for them (either at the house, or out and about). She's highly dependable and responsible (was never late). I never had any concern about her taking the kids on the highway or out for an adventure to the zoo, Children's Museum, etc. My kids absolutely loved her and even now (9 months later) ask about her consistently to see if she can come play (which she still does). :) You would be crazy not to hire Nataley!

My daughter has been attending kiddie palace for almost a year and it has been a wonderful experience and place to grow and learn, the group is small and the kids ( and parents) have formed wonderful friendships. The teachers are kind, compassionate and sweet to all of the kids and parents, Mrs Semma has created a great place to learn and to play, she puts lots of intension, pride and love into every day and activity that the kids work on. My child is moving on to preeschool soon and im sad to leave but, very happy that she had the opportunity to learned so much and spend so much time at Kiddie Palace. Kiddie Palace has great security cameras and fences, the teachers know at all times what's happening outside and inside the home. the kids have a private yard and in the summer they enjoy games and water activities and in the winter the classroom is warm and cozy. We love Mrs Seema and her family and hope to keep in touch with them and visit often if you have a chance to get a spot at Kiddie Palace you are very lucky.
