Meet Nakita

I have been working with children for 17 years, starting with my little sisters, moved on to family and friends. Word of mouth helped me start a little babysitting business. I was a nanny for a year, for a 2 year old girl and a 4 year old boy. During the summer I work for the Chicago Park District as a rec. leader for a Nature Adventure Camp and Harvest Garden program. I am currently in school majoring in Health and Wellness with a minor in Child Development. I truely love working with children of all ages, they have so much to offer and contribute to the world and do so with big smiles. Childhood is a time for fun, adventure, learning and growth; my passion is to see and help children do so with guidance, providing direction without force and manipulation. Listening to them, letting them know they are Read more heard, underdtood and appreciated.
