Born and raised in Texas, I received my B. A. in Musical Theater and Dance in 2013. I have taught dance and theater for the past 5 years to various ages and love having fun, singing, and dancing with kiddos. In the off season from doing musical productions, I was a live-in nanny for 5 years to 5 children, ages ranging from newborn-14 years old. It included housekeeping, meal preparations, and home schooling. I'm new to Chicago (moving there June 10th) and excited for the opportunities that await!

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.

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.

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!

$15-25/hr • 10 yrs exp • 32 yrs old
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.

$10-15/hr • 2 yrs exp • 27 yrs old
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
