Hello. 24 years old and I have been a nanny/babysitter since I was 17. I currently work for a family of three children. Mom is a teacher so on holidays, spring break, Christmas break, and summer break I am not needed (CPS calendar off days). Those are the only days I am looking to babysit for any family. I have been around a lot of ages starting from newborn to 8 years old. I have worked with up to 4 children at a time so any number of children is fine with me. I love to work with children and I have grown to love every child I have worked with. I enjoy taking the child(s) to daily activities, baking, arts & crafts, parks, reading books, library trips, help with homework, and on long walks. I have great references, my license, & insurance are up to date if needed. I can help with cleaning, I can follow any recipe, laundry, dishes, vacuuming, walk the dog. You name it! Please reach out if you have any questions. Thank you.

The "Experience" You Want
Avg response < 7 hrs
I have been nanny and a baby-child sitter for more than 20 years. I worked for public schools for 10 years. Playing outside. Helping/teaching children to write or do some homework is fine with me. I have also worked with all sorts of "special needs and children with disabilities". The families I have worked with have children ranging from 5 days old to 23 years old. Date night or emergency sitting is also something I do. The earlier you know the easier it can be.! I am up to date on my shots. CPR certified. Current passport. I have been on international and domestic trips as a traveling nanny.

Part Time, Full Time Nanny. Available Days And Most Evenings
In the five years that I have lived in Chicago I have had the pleasure to help raise three families of children. My first family was for 1 year for two boys ages 6 mo and 6 years. And was a live in situation. My second family has also been full time and for four years and will be ending this August in 2018. It is for a family with two children I have been with them since their daughter was 6 months old their son was 4. They are 4 and 7 now. The third is a part time after work tutoring position for my neighbor to help him with his reading and writing skills. I have over 30 years of experience raising my own two children as a single parent. They are 35 and 29, respectively. I can drive but do not own a car and have a clean driving record. I enjoy teaching children and preparing them for school. I will also do light housekeeping, errands, laundry, homework help. I believe outdoor time is very important so trips to the park or your back yard are a daily occurrence.

Hi there! My name is Ashley. I am 23 years old and currently in my second year of teaching. I have had the pleasure of teaching both 3rd and 5th grade. I absolutely love working with kids and started at the early age of 10 years old. Since then, I have nannied and tutored for several years. I enjoy working with kiddos on their reading and assisting with homework as needed. Along with that, I love getting them outdoors/active as much as possible. I am comfortable with the use of electronics and technology but would much rather have the kids doing other face to face activities like board games, crafts, etc. I have worked with all ages with very different needs. I am comfortable working with all ages, and embrace new personalities! I am currently in the process of going back to graduate school and am looking for a full time summer position and a following full time position for the upcoming school year. I would love to work for a family in need of a long term nanny.

I have experience with special needs children and I am familiar with a lot of the floor time therapies many children learn to grow through. I am okay if you have 1 or 15 kids. I assure that I can handle it. I am extremely patient. I have no problem working through homework, making sure you never come home to a dirty house, or dirty kids for that matter. I am the oldest of 5. I currently care for my 92 yr old disabled Nana but she finally found a nurse she likes so we will be hiring her. Please give me a call if I can answer any questions or concerns. I' d be more than happy to come meet you and your kiddos if you' d like. I have a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee in perfect condition and full coverage insurance. I've never been in a car accident (knock on wood) and so driving and picking up is no problem.

Hi there, my name is Elaina and I'm excited to meet you! I'm an artist in Chicago so I have a ton of flexibility in my schedule and I love doing crafts with kids. I'm also very passionate about literacy and have done a lot of reading tutoring in the past. I love to read with kids! Growing up my mother ran an in-home daycare so I spent a lot of time around toddlers and infants. In my high school and college years I babysat for several neighbors and spent the most time with children from 3-7. Most recently I have been volunteering as a reading tutor for Chicago's Open Books program where I work with second graders. I've been working in sales for the past 5 years but I don't find a lot of fun, creativity and meaning in my work so I'm looking to move into childcare as a full time job. I hope I'll get to meet you soon!

Avg response < 4 hrs
ONLY AVAILABLE DATENIGHTS 2018 I am a reliable, punctual, energetic, & creative individual with excellent childcare skills. Having graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre, I moved to Chicago to pursue my passion for performing & thus carry a unique sense of play & music to my work. I have attended children ages 3 mo to 12 years old with my background spanning from a YMCA Camp Counselor, T-Ball coach, vacation bible school teacher, to babysitter & nanny. Through this experience, I have acquired a large variety of skills needed to nurture kids' potential for growth, success, & joy. With that said, like to encourage the kids I nanny, as my parents encouraged myself & my sisters, to stay active & enjoy the beautiful outdoors. A few of my favorite nanny activities include trips to the zoo, exploring the Nature Museum, & lots & lots of games. I look forward to establishing positive relationships with you and your family and wish you luck in finding a provider that fits your specific needs.
