Meet Amber

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a very energetic, loving and outgoing 29 year old who loves working with kids.  I have great references and tons of experience.  I began babysitting at age 11 and nannying at age 18.  I have worked with children ranging in age from newborn through teen.  I am comfortable with multiple children, as I currently work once a week in a nursery with infants and toddlers.  I have also taught parent/tot/infant swim lessons and have been a camp counselor.  Until recently I was a Special Education major at NEIU, here in Chicago.  I love working with children and helping them grow, learn and develop. I believe it is a great responsibility and I cannot think of anything I would rather do.  I enjoy taking children on adventures and try my best to turn everything into a learning experience.  I do not encourage television, especially in younger children.  I prefer Read more to play, read and explore, getting out as often as possible.  I always make sure the the children tend to any responsibilities they may have, such as homework and chores, first though.  I am very affectionate with the children I care for and am looking for more than just a family to work for.  I have always felt that a good nanny becomes part of the family.  So, if you're a family, looking for your Mary Poppins, please contact me, so we can find out if we're a fit for one another.
