Experienced Babysitter/Nanny Looking For Summer Job; Available Most Weeknights And Sundays
Hi! My name is Imani and I am a an *almost* graduated senior from Lane Tech College Prep. I'm 18, and have over 5 years experience taking care of children ranging from about 2 months to 11 years old. I am leaving this summer to study at the University of Rhode Island and am looking to book steady nannying/babysitting opportunities before I leave. I am confident, outgoing, and fun! However, I m also responsible, am able to multitask while staying organized, and mature. I enjoy playing tennis, hanging out with my friends, and performing with my show choir. I have experience in picking up children from school, running errands for families, doing housework, laundry, cooking, and cleaning. I genuinely love children, partially because of my background growing up in a big family with lots of little cousins and a 9-year-old sister. I believe that I am qualified as a babysitter/nanny because of my patient and caring approach to children, and can balance a fun and respectful environment!

Hello families, I am a 19-year-old girl with lots of experience babysitting children of all ages. I have babysat for a little over five years now and love children. I also was a lifeguard and swim instructor so I am experienced in that field too. I am very responsible, fun, and caring. I love being outside, making crafts, taking kids to the park, on walks, playing sports, and participating in fun activities with them. I am a great driver and also experienced with taking CTA. I go to school at the University of Kansas but will be home from May 17th-August 9th. I am a full-time nanny in the summer, but available at night and on weekends. I will not be starting until June 10th so I will have a couple of weeks available, and the week of July 1 and July 15th available. I live in Lake View and have a car. Thanks, hope to hear from you guys soon!

Hello! My name is Liz, and I'm looking for a great babysitter for my 2 and a half year old son downtown Chicago on May 7 and 8 from 10 a.m. until about 4 p.m. while I work. Duties will include playing with my son, feeding him lunch and nap time. Looking for someone who has a big imagination and loves to play trucks and roads! We will be located near Michigan Avenue and Chicago Avenue so there are a couple great parks close by weather permitting. He is used to babysitters and very easy going. There is no parking but close to the red line and 66 bus. I usually pay $14-$18 per hour. I work in Chicago often on Tuesday and Wednesdays so this could turn into a re-occurring opportunity if there is interest. Message me if interested! Many thanks!

Transportation Required
Seeking care for my grandmother in her 90s. Services needed: companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about my grandmother: she can be pleasant, independent. My grandmom name is Jackie and she is 92 yrs old. She is a talker. She likes good conversation, and is fun to talk to. She don't like to be honest if she wants to eat more after she's had a meal. You have to ask her if she would like more. Her memory is not good at all. I think she's in the early stages of dementia. She also don't have a sense of smell. She also may have a urine accident in the bed and will act as though she's not aware that she did it. Keeping the pads on the bed & she wearing Depends at night eliminates/minimize the accidents. I'm looking for someone who is patient, chatty. My ideal caregiver is someone who s honest, mild-mannered and will treat my grandmom like their own. My grandmom has a difficult time walking so she stays in most of the time unless I take her out. She won't need to go out while I'm away. Having someone to talk to everyday (for the 2 weeks I will not be with her) will make her happy. She may asks questions and she does majority of the talking so someone has to be willing to listen. She is funny and great to talk to. She will make you laugh constantly.
