Norah’s Bio

I am a 25 year old single female residing on the north side of the city of Chicago. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2004. I have always had an interest in children and began babysitting in junior high. I worked for several families from this point on through high school. The families included friends and relatives, and later references through these two avenues. I sat for children ages 4 months to 13, for up to four children at a time, as well as for twins, and for single parents and couples. While earning my bachelors degree I worked as a teacher’s aid in a public school for grades K-4. I also participated in a course in which I assisted in a preschool classroom consisting of 10-15 four year olds.
I am currently working as a part-time nanny for an eight month old boy and have been doing so for the past 5 months. My duties include feeding and changing the baby, putting him down for naps, taking walks, and providing a stimulating environment with age appropriate toys, games and books, as well as light housework. I have found great joy in the experience and am looking for more part-time work with children of all ages.
I believe the most important quality for a child caregiver to possess is the ability to adapt. Children are constantly growing, learning and developing and it is crucial for a caregiver to be observant of such changes and ready to respond to a child’s various needs at different points in time. I believe that it is in an environment that constantly stimulates children and keeps them active that they are best able to develop. As a caregiver I assume responsibility to work with parents to provide this stimulating environment with learning tools, arts and crafts, games, etc.
Most importantly I believe it crucial for a caregiver to treat the child with dignity and respect, as well as care and concern. It is important for the child to feel that the adult is someone to be approached for instruction and guidance, and not simply an authority figure ever present to correct and dictate orders.
I am a loving, patient and responsible individual with a passion for working with children. I look forward to meeting your family and hope to hear from you soon.
