Meet Shelagh

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

My name is Shelagh Healey, I am 20 years old, and I am an Environmental Science student at the College of Lake County. I have been babysitting since I was 15 years old. I have cared for all ages of children, from newborns to fourteen years old. I worked as a caregiver at a local church’s mom’s group in a classroom of twelve one year olds, I was a babysitter at the park district child care room, and I babysit regularly for many families in the Libertyville and surrounding areas. Coming from a big family, I love caring for kids in every stage of their life. Because I have worked with such a wide variety of kids, I feel comfortable with whatever might be thrown my way! I love finding ways to keep kids busy without relying on a screen. My go-to activities are arts and crafts, reading books, and Read more playing outside- no matter what season it is! I have my own car for transportation and I have experience taking all ages to and from day care, school, and other activities. I have two large dogs of my own, so I am comfortable with pets. I am CPR, first aid, and AED certified for infants, children, and adults by American Red Cross. I can’t wait to hear from you to further discuss my qualifications!
