Dalila’s Bio

Hi, my name is Dalila and i would be honored to be your baby-sitter.
I have had experience in child care for over eight years. I studied for two years at UIC and then left to work as a nanny. I have worked with various wonderful Chicago families. I have worked with families for over two years and have left either because of location change or the children entering school. If given the opportunity to care for your child(ern), I would insure no regrets.

I have worked for one family in particular for over two years. I started when the infant was only a couple of months old. I worked with the parents in formulating an adequate schedule and allowing a sleeping schedule to begin. We have a routine set that everyone agreed with. My number one goal is to allow very open lines of communication with the parents. My belief is that communication is essential in having a good nanny-family relationship. When the family introduced another lovely child to the equation, we were thrilled. I followed the same procedure as with baby #1. Then, after about 6 months, the family relocated and so did I. The almost 1.5hr commute started to become too much and I had to part ways.

I have been in the childcare field for a long time. I am committed, hardworking, fun and very determined. I create bonds with the families I work for. So much so, that I still visit the first family I found on this site in 2008.

Allow me the opportunity to make your family needs for childcare a smooth transition. You will not regret your decision.

Said she liked dogs, then was not happy with them. Called 15 minutes before she was supposed to be here on her 3rd day and canceled. Our son was happy with her, but she didn't stay as long as we asked or do light house work as she said she would. Our son's room was also a mess when she left.

Provider's Response

Hi Abbey,
I am very disappointed in your review. I initially was delighted to work for you and thought that your dogs would not be a problem. I began to feel sick after I began to watch Dylan. I was told I would be paid daily and had been working for three days without pay. The light house work was fine. I unloaded your dishwasher and fixed the house as much as I could. The only problem that I encountered was the lack of communication. The house was a mess and I felt uncomfortable.

Dalila was a dream initially. She was always available for any day I asked. She was often 5-10 minutes late which really didn't bother me much so I let it go as I knew she often took the CTA.
I used her for almost a year and I really thought we had a good working relationship. Recently, I called and texted her with no response. I realize she is in school and may not have time for sitting anymore; however, have not heard back from her. I'm quite surprised that she didn't call me to at least let me know if she's no longer available.

Provider's Response

Hi Lorena,
Yes i am still available but have been busy with school. I would love to watch Alex and Sophia whenever needed because I miss seeing them. Call me whenever you need me and sorry about the mis-communication.

I can't believe she did this!!! I had fixed an interview with Dalila for 10 am. She called to tell me she'll be 10 minutes late but didn't show up at all! I called 35 minutes later and she pretended that she was downstairs and couldn't find my building. She said that she had a doctors appointment that went over. Even that's fine but then she never showed up!!! Huh?!!

Provider's Response

Hi. I am so sorry to read your response. When I called you to let you know I was outside, you were very rude. I have over four years of experience and great references. I do not like to be late nor waste anyone's time. I came from the doctors that day and hoped that the time span would be enough. I am not rude to people and wish you the best of luck finding someone to fit your family. Thank you
