Maryellen’s Bio

Hello,
I am a 31 year old female who currently nannies full-time Monday-Thursday. I am able to help out with babysitting on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
I have twenty years of child care experience with ten as a nanny. I currently live in Des Plaines and work in Glencoe.
I moved to the city to take improv and acting classes, eight years ago. I will be starting pre-requisites for the nursing program at Oakton in the Fall.
I am hardworking, dependable, honest, fun, outgoing, and creative. I own a safe car, willing to travel up to twelve miles. I have positive reviews on my profiles ( a couple reviews on my nanny profile didn't carry over to my babysitting profile) as well as wonderful references available.
I look forward to help with your weekend babysitting needs!

I ultimately hired another nanny and have not worked with Maryellen, but I did interview her in person. I found her to be very professional, personable with a great attitude and a super cheerful outlook on life. She was definitely one of the top contenders for our nanny role and I would encourage other families to interview her. I think she would be a wonderful addition to your family and has solid childcare experience.

Mary Ellen was a part time nanny for our now 1 year old daughter for the past 2 months. During that time she was incredibly helpful and accomodating to our needs. Her interaction and attention to our daughter was outstanding. We also surprised to find her performing various duties that were not required of her (ie laundry, dishes, etc.). We could count on her to be on time with a great attitude every single day. Overall she exceeded our expectations and would be a great candidate to nanny for children of any age.

Talk about helping out in a pinch! Maryellen came to our rescue one sunday when we needed a sitter at the last minute so my husband and i could go to the last Bears playoff game. Maryellen arrived with very little notice and in good cheer to look after my two children. They had a great afternoon together. Bears lost, but we won with Maryellen's company. Thanks again!

Super Nanny!!!

Maryellen has helped us in a part-time capacity for three weeks while our full-time sitter focused on her upcoming wedding. She has been simply AMAZING! The kids are happy, engaged but directed. She has coordinated meals, naps, play at parks... the gamut. She has an easy-going demeanor and consequently, the household is calm, orderly -- yet F-U-N! She's driven the two twins kids to camp (age 4, boy and girl), taken all three kids to the zoo (age 4 twins + our 11 yr old daughter), done crafts, built forts and been an all around FABULOUS addition to our lives. We highly recommend Maryellen to other families... she's punctual, kind, and able to command a child's respect at the same time, letting them explore and be young people. We will remain in touch -- this lady is a gem!!! Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further context. THANK YOU MARYELLEN... I mean MARY-LEMON as she and our younger ones have coined!

Maryellen watched my son for an evening while we were in the area for an event. She arrived early and brought board games for our son and immediately sat down and started playing with him when she arrived. He was thrilled! She communicated quickly and with great detail when I asked for updates throughout the evening. I would recommend Maryellen as a babysitter.
