Allyson’s Bio

I've been sitting 2 local children for just over 2 years now. It has been a super gratifying experience watching the oldest learn his colors, shapes, numbers, and letters & the youngest learn to walk, talk, and identify colors & shapes after watcing her brother learn them.
I am a 22-year old college student going to Columbia College in Chicago. My first childcare experience, at 10, was helping to raise two of my cousins, ages 11 & 12 now. I love to stimulate learning while encouraging fun and creativity in activities I invite the children to do. I am "fun" and very creative (I paint, do photography, sew, and cook).
If hired, I'd want a family that is open and loving yet has boundaries set so as to help their children flourish while not giving them entirely free rein. While I am a strong proponent of letting kids do their own thing, I do not condone excessive spoiling and therefore extreme "prince/princess"-like behavior. I have an infinite supply of ideas for activities and field trips. If hired, I would love taking the children (if old enough) to places such as the zoo, the Art Institute, any of the Museums, the park and other nature preserves, while planning activities for the children to do and learning exercises based on where we go. We can learn about the animals we are going to see, a specific artist, or an ancient culture. I'd love to incorporate food and a faux-travel to a country and get the kids involved in things different cultures do. However, these are all ideas for kids who can grasp concepts like that. If the children are younger, I'll stimulate their creativity and imagination with plenty of art and music exercises and activities. They won't even know they are learning!

Allyson has done after school sitting for me for a few months. She is very reliable and took the initiative for crafts and activities with the kids (8&11).
