I love being a nanny I feel I get back what I give. I have worked with only three families in 17 years. I think that speaks volumes and says a lot about me. My style of childcare is keep it simple, I like routine and stucture for children, as I feel they understand what's 'next' this makes there little lives easier. But it's all about having fun at the same time. People would describe be best, as loving, caring and kind, and a big heart, extremely organized, very puntual and dependable and flexible with an outgoing personality. My first family used to live in Oak Park, I worked for them for eight years, with only one child to start, he at that time was only 18 months old. When I left the family they had three children total! One is now off to college in the fall:) My second Read more family was in Western Springs, a 10 year old with special needs. Two years for this position. My current family have three boys, age 11, 7, and 5. I started with this family when the 7 year old was only 4 months old. The main reason for leaving, although sad, the youngest will be going to school full time in the fall, so going from 42 - 22 hours, is not afordable to me! As you can see I have many many years of experience from newborn/infant through 12 year olds, multiple children at on time. I have two amazing written references from my two previous families whom are contactable!
