I Love Working For My Elders.
I have been working as a caregiver for 8 years now. I need an elder I can take care of just the way I took care of my mother in law.

My name is Sereena and I'm currently looking for a nanny position! I'm CPR and first aid certified. I love kids and have experience with all ages from newborns to 14 years of age, working with up to 4 kids at once. I'm very caring, genuine, honest and loving. I take full responsibility on duty and taking care of the kids as if they were my own. I'm an active nanny and I love to take kids on walks, parks, library etc. I'm a huge animal lover and love all kinds of animals. I love sports and hands on activities, but also enjoy arts and crafts, reading, and down time. I have my own transportation and can provide for the child(ren) if and when needed. I do laundry, make healthy nutritional meals and other household chores. I hope I meet the criteria you are looking for in a potential caregiver and I look forward to hopefully working with your family! If you like what you are reading or have more questions and want to know more about me, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Maryellen Poppins, To The Rescue!
Hi There! I have a great outlook on life, a wonderful sense of humor, and a positive attitude towards each day. I have 26 years of child care experience (NB-12 yrs), including 14 as a full time nanny (NB-7yrs). I am creative (improv/acting/stand-up), don't mind getting dirty, or looking silly; whom children always love (my references can attest to that). I am willing to do housework or anything else you will need, to help things run as stress free as possible, in your house. I am honest, punctual, dependable, hardworking, and cannot wait to become an addition to your family!

We're looking for a part time, MWF, nanny to care for our 3yr & 1yr old boys in Des Plaines. G is our oldest. He's so sweet and shy until he gets to know you. He loves going to the nearby parks and anything construction related. His younger brother, M is such a happy, little flirt. He wants to do everything that his older brother does even though he can't walk yet. I'm sure it'll happen soon enough. As our nanny, besides basic care, you'll be responsible for prepping snacks and meals, the boys laundry, and keeping the common areas, as well as their rooms clean and organized. We want someone who can also implement educational and age appropriate activities. Our older son will be in preschool on Wed from 9-1 so you'll need to drive him and pick him up. Pay will be discussed & based on experience. We hope to find our perfect match!
