Rachel’s Bio

  
I have been a childcare provider/nanny/mother’s helper for the past 21 years.  I've had great experiences with children of all ages, including newborns.
 I am currently looking for either  full time or part time position Monday Wednesday and Friday 7.30am til 4 or 5pm and occasionally Saturday nights (date night) starting September. I would also consider a long term, consistent position with some flexibility. I currently live in Independence Park Area so it would ideal if i found something that is close. I would be willing to travel to surrounding areas, Old Irving Park,  Albany Park, North Center, Portage Park. Logan square and Bucktown, Wicker Park.

I am nurturing, responsible, fun-loving and active.  In my many years of experience I have been involved in all aspects of children’s lives at all ages. 
Experience with babies and toddlers included:
-          Following nap schedules
-          Daily outdoor activities such as walks, parks, beaches, playgroups, other activities
-          Cared for sick children, took children to the doctors when needed
-          Potty training
-          Age-appropriate educational activities such as Educational activities things with the children shapes, colors, alphabet, numbers, puzzles and animals etc
-          Supervising play dates with other families and children.
Experience with school-age children included:
-          Preparing children for school
-          Attending extra-curricular activities
-          Assisting with homework and class projects.
-          Educational activities and trips including museums (e.g. Museum of Science and Industry, Shedd Aquarium) and nature exploration (e.g. Lincoln Park Zoo, local Chicago beaches)
-          Supervising play dates with other families and children

As a mother myself, I know how important it is to make life easier for parents.  In addition to caring for the children, I also prepare meals (breakfast and lunch) and light household work (including laundry, errands, etc.) and general assistance with what is needed for the entire family.
I have loved the children and have had wonderful experiences with all of the families I have worked with over the years.  I hope that you find my profile to be something that is of interest to you.

Thank you.

Rachel is my current nanny and sadly we have to move. She sits for us on weekends and overnights in addition to regular 3 days a week schedule.

Rachel is absolutely wonderful with my kids (girl age 2.5; boy age 9mo) dog (annoying black lab) and house (I am unorganized and seriously don’t know what I am going to do without Rachel). She is British, in her late 30s, has 10+ years of experience as a nanny, a mother herself. Rachel is extremely active and engaged with my kids, taking them out and about in all seasons. When they nap she doesn’t stop, she does light housekeeping and laundry and is always asking if she can help me or taking the initiative herself with things above and beyond her role as a nanny. She is just a good person with a good heart, trustworthy, smart, reliable, I just can’t say enough good things about her.

Please feel free to contact me. Beth els1129@hotmail.com
