Hello! Im a friendly, loving, and reliable 18-year-old babysitter with little under 2 years of experience watching children for a few different families. I have worked with children from the ages of 2 all the way to 12. I'm currently a senior in high-school and am graduating early this December 2019. I have experience working with special needs children in my high-schools "Best Buddies" program, and also have had experience with children needing daily injections or medication. I'm very artistic and grew up doing tons of crafts with my mom and sister! I love introducing new fun, and creative things to do with the children I watch. I have received a 3. 5 gpa all of high-school and can easily help with any homework. My passion is teaching children how to be creative, respectful, and making sure they are having the most fun while in the safest care! **Currently I'm available to do late nights Friday and Saturdays, after December 17th I am available during day hours 9:00am-2:30pm

Reliable And Fun
Hi there. My name is Kelly and I am 45 years old. I have 3 kids ages 18, 19 and 25. I was a stay at home mom with my kids and I am truly thankful I was able to do that with them. I really would not have had it any other way. I am what you would call a kid at heart. If I could get my kids do do art projects with me still I would. When my kids were old enough I opened a store in Downers grove and then moved to Clarendon Hill for 3 years. I have lived and worked in this area my whole life. I have a part time job but since my kids are grown I'm looking for something to fill my time and I just love kids so thought this would be perfect.

Compassionate Caring Companion And A Person Who Just Cares
I was a Nanny in Sacramento, CA and worked with three young children. I also was a live in for a Paraplegic Man whom I fully cared for. I took the 6 month course and classes for CNA, not certified though. My grandmother is also dementia and I sit with her on occasion to assist my sister with household cleaning and meal preparation. I love going to church, run errands and helping with tasks. I am just a caring person who was raised in church and was taught to are for my siblings being the oldest daughter. I occasionally babysit for my sister (16, 9, 5 yr old) I recently moved back to Chicago and need to have some income coming in. I am patient, soft spoken, kind, detailed, following directions and I think of others before myself.

We need someone accommodate our less than typical work hours. Our little one is clever, busy, so sweet and gives lots of smiles. He loves walks, books (for a few minutes at least!) and playing in the yard. We are looking for someone to replace our family who have been providing childcare. Initially we would like someone to cover every other Friday and then increase to two days a week for 20 hrs /week. Looking for care 12-1030 p.m. and the occasional night out. Flexible start date. My schedule varies every other week. Coverage needed Monday Friday one week and Wednesday Thursday the next. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with our large dog and a non-smoker. Looking for a kind and gentle caregiver to love on our infant son while we are away.
My 2yr old has a big imagination, loves to dance and make up songs. He goes with the flow and is very easy going as long as he's engaged and not bored. He's very inquisitive and likes to learn about things... if he's upset, the easiest way to turn that around is to suggest a nature walk or to play blocks with him. Our ideal caregiver: I imagine him or her to be a calm presence who enjoys interacting with my 2yr old. They would go for walks, play ball, play games together, and maybe do an art craft on occasion. He or she would make their time together fun and structured. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son and 2-year-old son. Looking for care Tuesdays (8:30am-5:30pm) and Wednesdays (9-2pm).
