Meet Alana

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there! I'm Alana, and I've been babysitting children of all ages since I was 15. When I was 17, I got my first job as an after-school teacher where I worked with between 30-100 children in 1st-5th grade. After a year working there, I became a part-time nanny for children who were 6 and 9 and worked there for 2 1/2 years. My infant and toddler experience is from years of babysitting and helping my family with my baby cousins. I've done caregiving through babysitting and my previous jobs that has given me 6 years of experience working with children from newborns to 12-year-olds. I have experience with tutoring, meal prep/feeding, playing, light housework, and transportation (however, I'm recently moving to Chicago and don't have my own car). I have CPR and First Aid Training and can provide multiple references. I start at DePaul this fall majoring in Sociology, Read more and I hope to work with children in my career. I look forward to working with you and your family!
