Looking for work as a babysitter or nanny

  • 8 years paid experience
  • Babysitter in Chicago, IL 60651

Meet Terri

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

I am a 26 year old recent college graduate who grew up caring for children both younger and older than myself (mostly my older brothers). Past experiences as a nanny/tutor/teacher's assistant have involved planning activities, maintaining schedules, cleaning and cooking, and I have over 5 years of experience in this field. I am non-smoker and CPR Certified. I have worked with all age groups ranging from 3 months to 13 years old. I have professional references at request. I enjoy being outdoors, singing, and playing sports. I believe structure is very important in a child's life, and I love being able to assist families in providing that structure and help ease the load for the family!
