Full-time Nanny Available

Avg response < 4 hrs
I have been working for two years as a nanny for two wonderful children (aged two and five) but am currently relocating to Chicago from New York. I have been with the family since the 2-year-old was born and have experience with caring for newborns including diaper changes, getting them down for nap, and bathing. I am familiar with baby sign language and developmental stages that children experience as they grow as well as activities that can help encourage healthy learning. I am adult and pediatric CPR/AED and first aid certified through the Red Cross. I have worked with the 5-year-old throughout the years on letters, colors, numbers, and reading. However, we also spend a lot of time painting, playing dress up, singing, and other fun activities. I have also accompanied the family on vacation. I am comfortable with families with pets and have experience working with them too!

Kristen has worked as a nanny/babysitter for our family for the past 2 years. She is so much more than a babysitter/nanny to us she has become part of our family. She is one of the most responsible, caring and dedicated people I have ever met. She started working for us weeks before we had our 2nd child. She drove my daughter to activities, played, read, prepped meals, helped with homework, organized clothes and performed any task that was asked of her. She also helped care for me during those 1st post-partum weeks. She is always on time and ready to work with a smile. She takes on board whatever style of parenting one ascribes to, to make sure that there is consistency for the children. She makes them laugh all the time but will implement a time out when needed. She has come on vacation with us (Disney) and was a tremendous help. She has also helped with our cats and has house sit for us. We are devastated that she is moving but look forward to visiting her.

Energetic, Creative, Compassionate Summer Nanny

Avg response < 9 hrs
(AVAILABLE DATE NIGHTS ONLY) 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.

Alli has been our son's nanny for the last two years (age 3mo to a little over 2 years). She has been a complete dream, and we cannot say enough good things about her. First and foremost, she knocks all of the basic requirements out of the park - punctual, great with kids, great communicator, tidy. But you can find a lot of people that meet those minimum requirements. Alli is special because she truly acts like a member of our family and a partner in raising our little guy. She would research challenges we were having and suggest ideas. She flat out LED us through how to get him to give up his pacifier (this is kid two for us too, so its not like we're complete newbies!), but in an absolutely non-pushy way. Occasionally, she would also watch our older daughter (5) and always brought ideas and supplies for crafts they could do together. Both of our children absolutely adore her. You're welcome to contact me as a reference if you have other questions.

The Nanny!

Hello! I am a 29-year-old woman who earns her living working as a schedule coordinator at a pediatric dental office. I have spent 7 years as a nanny and 10 plus as a babysitter. Prior to working as a personal nanny, I worked at an athletic club in the daycare department. I was there for three years. I worked the summers when I was on vacation from High School. I have to admit that though my sister got me interested in becoming a nanny, the athletic club is where I first grew a love for working with children. I find it inspiring to watch them transform into astounding young adults. They are so interested in life and in learning, it's a beautiful thing. I take my job very seriously, as I know how important it is. I also know how hard it must be for a parent to leave their young ones. Therefore, I always do my best to make sure the parent knows that their child's early development, safety, and happiness are always my number one concern!

Lynette is an excellent caregiver and a wonderful person. Lynette joined our family as part of a full-time nanny share as effectively the nanny of twin 4 month old babies. We couldn't have been happier or more blessed with the experience, especially as first-time parents. Lynette was a natural with the babies, and they bonded with her immediately. Lynette went outside every day, fed the children balanced and healthy meals, extensively played for learning and socialization, read, went to Chicago parks, encouraged music, and talked to the kids. She also taught them sign language to accelerate communication. Lynette's core personal values of family, politeness and kindness shined through in her natural care giving style. She was always highly capable and unruffled in any situation, and she adapted to our extra dynamics of care giving, such as apartment living, stroller navigation, and my work schedule. Lynette continues to care for us as a babysitter, and we are thankful!
