Full-Time, Part-Time, Live-Out, Professional Nanny Available
My name is Jan and I am also known as, Mary Poppins. I have over 10 years of experience and live in the Bartlett area near Villa Olivia. I became a professional nanny after I was laid off from my corporate job as a Director Level of Training and Documentation Design in 2001. Since 2001, I have had the pleasure of being a nanny for the following families.
My first family was two young ladies aged 18 months and 3 years as well as a golden retriever. I was with this family for 5 years until the 18-month-old went to first grade. I am in still contact with this family and can say we have become close friends!
My second family was for two little ladies aged 18-month-old and a newborn. I was with this family for 6 years until the newborn (now three) went to preschool. I am still contact with this family today and remain involved as much as I can in their lives.
My third family was for 3-month-old young man. I took care of him until he was a year old. He is now on a new adventure exploring day care.
As a nanny, I try to incorporate learning through conversation, reading, and song! With all my nanny-children, we have enjoyed playing games (board and pretend), making tents out of pillows and blankets, crafts (painting, making birdhouses, making stick horses, holiday crafts, etc.), picnics (inside on the floor when the weather is bad or outside under a tree), field trips (zoo, parks, swimming, bowling, etc.), or just hanging out in our "PJs" for a movie and popcorn day!
I am a college graduate, a safe driver, a non-smoker, an animal lover and CPR/First Aid certified.
If you think your little one would benefit from a fun, Mary Poppins type nanny, I would love to chat with you and discuss my experience in detail. Thank you in advance for your time.
