Ellie’s Bio

Hey parents! I'm a recent transplant to Chicago from Austin, Texas, currently working full time in development at Goodman Theatre. I am a responsible, loving, and honest babysitter. I have experience with all ages and have been sitting for over eight years years. I enjoy engaging kids' sense of humor and having a fun time. I love to be outdoors and do artwork with kids, and especially read books at bedtime. I always clean up after myself and the kids, and never leave the kitchen dirty. I pride myself on being on time and responsible, and will always report truthfully on a kid's behavior. Please feel free to contact my references, as I've done steady, long-term work for both and have established great relationships with them. Please give me a call or email, whichever you prefer. I look forward to meeting you!
Currently I am open open to occasional, casual nighttime and weekend babysitting gigs. I do not own a car but do not mind biking or taking public transit up to 45 minutes to a job. Thanks for your interest!

Ellie did a great job with our kids who are almost 6 & 7. They had fun and were in bed on time (school night).

Provider's Response

Hi Ellen!

I haven't seen Alec and Avery in awhile--call me sometime! I'm still babysitting and trying to get as much work as I can. My number is 203-980-3071. Hope your summer vacation is going well!

Best,
Ellie

We have had Ellie babysit for us on five occasions. She watched both of our boys (16 months and 3 1/2 yrs) on three different evenings, including the dinner and bedtime routines. She also watched just our older son (3 1/2 yrs) two other days during the day. (He is usually pretty unhappy when we leave him with babysitters, but by the second day, he was practically pushing us out the door.) She was always on time and pleasant and clearly very good with the kids. We were very pleased with her work and will definitely call her again.

- Stephen P.

Provider's Response

Hey Stephen!

Thanks for the kind review! I'd love to see the boys again sometime soon. I miss them!

Best,
Ellie
