Hi there! If you're looking for a lively, creative, and reliable sitter or nanny look no further! I've worked as a babysitter/nanny for 12 years now having started as just a pre-teen (pretty young, I know. But that's being a 90's kid for ya!). I've worked with children of all ages, twins, preemies, and children with disabilities. Mostly I've been a caretaker in northern Illinois but worked on Long Island as well when I attended college, and then as a nanny for a year for a high end family in NYC. Currently I'm with the best family I've ever had the pleasure of working for in Gurnee, IL where I care for a 12 (soon to be 13!), 10, and 9-year-old part time. Sadly I will be leaving them this summer as I'm relocating to Chicago. More about me: I'm very energetic! I love sports - Soccer and Track being my favorite. I'm very artsy - with a deep love of theatre. I've read all the plays of Anton Chekhov and if you want your kids to know about the works of Shakespeare, I'm your gal!

Over the past 20 years I have had the privilege of working with many different children. I have experience from ages 2 weeks old to 12 years old. I have also cared for twins and children with special needs. I consider myself a creative individual. I would say my specialty would be in creative crafts and games, but not limited to only that. I also like spending nice days playing outside with children. Creating fun new games that challenge them physically as well as tapping into their imaginations is something I like to do on a regular basis. I believe the relationship between parents and nanny is extremely important. Trust and strong communication is a must. I have found it helpful to keep a journal logging meals, naps, diaper changes, and important milestones that happen throughout the day for parents to reference and review. I can provide nanny, professional, and personal references for you.

I've worked at two different elementary schools as a counselor/teacher assistant. I've taken courses and training for my past jobs to work with children of all ages. I am mostly experienced with children in elementary school but I work really well with children of all ages. I'm originally from Florida but I moved to Chicago to attend the University of Illinois at Chicago. Baking and dancing are two popular activities I do with children. I also am very active. I ran track in high school. I also enjoy riding bikes and playing with the kids in general. I was in choir and drama all four years of my high school experience. I love music and dramatic arts. In college, I am active in my FBI Academy and acapella group. I received a 3. 85 GPA my first year of college. My career goal is becoming a Federal Agent. The safety of your children is very important to me. I guarantee your child will be happy to have me as their care giver. I also can help out with light cleaning and meal prep.

Hello, my name is Michelle and I am 26 years old. I attended Triton College for my Associates Degree and took many Early Childhood courses. I used to work for KinderCare daycare in Des Plaines, Illinois. I worked there for over a year as the Lead Infant room teacher as well as a floater in the Kindergarten and Pre-school rooms. I also have many years of experience in baby-sitting while I was in high school and had a part time Nanny gig for about 2 years now. I absolutely believe that children need a strong, responsible role model to look up to as Children are our Future. Teaching them new things and helping them achieve and believe that they are the best that they can be. I encourage all the children I work with to do their hardest and never give up no matter what. Children truly bring a smile to my face and love nothing more than seeing them happy. Thank you for your time and consideration! -Michelle

I have worked with children of all ages for over 7 years now. I have upheld wonderful relationships with all the families.

In addition, to being a nanny I have worked at a hospital as a C-section tech assisting in deliveries of newborns and providing care in the nursery. I love to cook, do crafts and participate in outdoor activities. Growing up I was an all season athlete and till this day I fully advocate eating healthy and staying fit. I am a very outgoing and caring individual who is passionate about working with children. I am outstanding at multitasking and staying organized.

When I was 17, I worked in daycare part time as a teacher's assistant. That is when I discovered my love and passion for children and youth. The discovery of my passion of educating and caring for children led me to become a nanny. I have 10 years of experience caring for small children in the city of Chicago. I had the privilege to nanny for several different families in Chicago over the years, developing solid trusting relationships with both child and parent. When I am caring for your child, I will love them as if they were my own, with a strong emphasis of being their friend. A friend who will provide for their needs, where they will enjoy the time spent together while you are away. I am someone who will play and interact with your child, by being active throughout the day while also helping them learn and grow.
