Meet Karyn

I'd say I am an active and optimistic mom of a wonderful 14-year-old boy, so lots of good experience there! I'm available for part-time work 1-2 days/week and 3 - 4 hours/day, with some availability for Friday evenings. I'm looking to supplement my work as a freelance communications producer. My rate is $20/hr. for 1 child and $25/hr. for 2 children.

The best scenario for me is to take kids on a fun outing, Kohl's Children's Museum, Barnes & Noble in Deerfield with great kids area with stage and Thomas the Train set, seasonal outings like the Botanic Garden/Train...

I'd say I am an active and optimistic mom of a wonderful 14-year-old boy, so lots of good experience there! I'm available for part-time work 1-2 days/week and 3 - 4 hours/day, with some availability for Friday evenings. I'm looking to supplement my work as a freelance communications producer. My rate is $20/hr. for 1 child and $25/hr. for 2 children.

The best scenario for me is to take kids on a fun outing, Kohl's Children's Museum, Barnes & Noble in Deerfield with great kids area with stage and Thomas the Train set, seasonal outings like the Botanic Garden/Train Expo in the Spring/Summer/Fall, Pumpkin Patches, and Christmas Holiday Events. Something to give you parents some time to yourself at home or going out and a fun time for your kids! :)

I also have good experience with infants and I'd be available for taking care of your baby in your home or mine. It's been hit or miss as far as pets and being allergic, so to be safe it's best if you don't have pets.

I worked with an agency part-time from 2010 - 2012. I had a wonderful family in Lake Bluff with 2 kids that I worked with often during that time. Also, I cared for an adorable 6-month-old baby boy and twin toddlers in Highland Park. I've taken care of a bright 3-year-old boy in Glenview and twin toddler boys in Glencoe.

I live in the Wilmette/Kenilworth area. I'm open to working families from Wilmette to Lake Bluff, also the Near East Side/Millennium Park area. I do have a car and am comfortable driving your kids to and from activities.

I've always loved kids and started babysitting when I was 12 years old. I enjoy creating good memories and have done that with my son and his friends as well as all the kids I've taken care of over the years.

As a mom, I know it's important to make sure you feel comfortable with the person taking care of your child(ren). I'd be glad to set-up a time to meet you and your family!

Rebecca C. says:
Simply outstanding. Karyn is someone you want to be with your children. She was a joy, and our son loved her very much. I felt comfortable with her watching him and enjoyed my time away without worrying about what was going on. I came home to a clean house and a happy boy.
