Kristin’s Bio

Hi! I’m Kristin. When I began my career as a private childcare provider nearly ten years ago, I had no idea this job would lead me to where I am today. After graduating with my Bachelors and working for five years, I am now pursuing a Masters in Child Development with Infant Specialization at the Erikson Institute here in Chicago. My love for children and curiosity for the world has taken me all over, from volunteering in African orphanages to volunteering locally at Gigi’s Playhouse Chicago, working with children is my passion!

I have worked for a variety of families around Chicago, I have had positions anywhere from a mom’s helper with one to a FT family manager with multiple children. My preference at this time is working with newborns because that is the career path I am choosing to take in my Masters degree program. I have experience in newborn consulting, including help with sleep training, digestion issues, and calming techniques. I also have years of potty training experience for the early toddler years.

My small town, big family upbringing has always been my motivation to provide superior care for each and every child I work with. With the childcare experience I have, rest assure that I can handle most childcare situations. With the encouragement of social play dates, organized classes (such as music) and secure discipline I do my best in promoting your child’s mental, physical and emotional development when it matters most. I consider myself a professional and always put my best forward to assure the safety and responsibility of each child I care for while still letting kids be kids. My childcare experience has been rewarding and I love doing it, which I believe is essential in life. My hourly rate reflects my 10 years of experience and my quality of care.

Beginning in May, I am looking for a PT position on Mondays, Thursdays, and the occasional Friday. This position would need to accommodate my evening school schedule (classes are 6pm-9pm downtown Monday and Wednesday). Please contact me if you think I would be a good fit for your family’s needs. References are available upon request and would be happy to speak with you. On a side note, I am allergic to cats and have a difficult time working in a home with cats.

Please check out the link below to get an idea of what kind of childcare provider I am. Thank you!
