Cheryl’s Bio

Hi Parents,

My name is Cheryl and I just returned to Chicago on December 29th. I previously lived in River North and was a full time nanny in the city until my husband and I moved to California in 2012. We lived in San Luis Obispo and San Francisco, where I was a full time nanny as well. In the summer of 2017, we moved to the Netherlands as my husband was offered an opportunity to finish his MBA while on exchange from Berkeley. Now we are back in Chicago and I would love the chance to be your family's date night sitter!

I have seven years of experience as a full time nanny and over 16 years as a date night/part time sitter. Here is a quick overview of my nanny experience:

Family 1 (2008-2010): Children were 3 months, 4 years and 5 years old when I started and I worked M-F, 7:30-5:30.

Family 2 (2010-2012): Child was 4 months old when I started and I worked M-F, 8-5.

Family 3 (2013-2014): Children were 6 months and 10 years old when I started and I worked M-F, 8-5.

Family 4 (2014-2015): Children were 6 weeks and 17 months old when I started and I worked M-F, 9-7.

Family 5 (2016-2017): Child was 1 when I started and I worked M-F, 8-6.

Family 6 (2014-2017): Child was 4 months old when I started and then family welcomed a second child in 2016. I was their weekly date night sitter so dates and times varied.

Can't wait to meet you!

All the best,
Cheryl

Cheryl was great with our two girls (ages 3 & 1). Our oldest keeps asking for Cheryl to come over to play again. She is great to work with. She gets back to me very quickly and arrives early. I highly recommend her.

Cheryl was wonderful with my two boys (ages 2 & 4) -- I was in town on business and had her watch the boys for two evenings and they LOVED her. Very professional, responsive, and great with kids!

Provider's Response

Thank you very much for such a glowing review! I can honestly say it was the easiest sitting job and that is a result of your wonderful parenting and family structure. I had a blast coloring and creating mazes! I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Chicago and hope you come back to visit soon!

Cheryl is a true gem. My daughter had the best time with her this summer! She even took photos of their adventures around the city, which they then made into scrapbook pages. My daughter wants to know when Cheryl can come over again. We are big fans!

I used Cheryl to babysit for my 2 year old son while vacationing in town for the weekend. She came both days early, and was prepared with stickers and art projects! She had stayed in touch with me for 2 weeks leading up to our trip. She is very personable, my son had a great time with her, and I wish we lived here so we could use her often! I can't say enough good things, we were just very pleased with the way it worked out.
