ENERGETIC, CARING & EXPERIENCED CHILDCARE PROVIDER AND HOUSE MANAGER I'd say I'm an active and optimistic mom of a wonderful 19-year-old son in college, so lots of good experience there! :) Over the years, I've enjoyed working with wonderful families! Beginning with a family in Lake Bluff with 2 kids (girl 2 and boy 6). Also cared for two adorable 6-month-old baby boys, one in Wilmette and one in Evanston...and sweet/energetic boy & girl twin toddlers in Highland Park. I've taken care of a bright 3-year-old boy and his newborn little sister in Glenview. Also provided care for twin toddler boys in Glencoe and 8 & 10-year-old brother & sister in Wilmette. Most recently, I've worked with a couple families in Wilmette, one with active twin 15 yr. old boys & 2 adorable Labradoodles, and the other with 3 siblings (boy & 2 girls) grades 1,4 & 6, helping to Read more keep their schedules and home running well. Just prior to these families, I cared for a 12 & 10 yr. old brother & sister in Winnetka, along with their cute labradoodle puppy. I recently moved to Arlington Heights and am open to travel 10-15 miles. As a mom, I know it's important to make sure you feel comfortable with the person taking care of your child(ren). I'd be glad to set-up a time to meet you and your family! :) My rate is based on a minimum of 3 hrs./day: $18/hr. - 1 child $25/hr. - 2 children Payment is due after each day booked - cash or check. I do have a car and am comfortable driving your kids to and from activities (if using my car it would just be $.55/mile).
