Mara’s Bio

Hi there! My name is Mara.  I have 11 years of experience which consisted of caring for infants, toddlers, school aged, twins, and triplets. I also have nanny share experience, as well as extensive experience in managing and coordinating multiple children and the parents schedule.  I am CPR/First Aid certified for infant, children and adults. I have extensive knowledge with infant care. When working with infants in the past I have assisted parents in creating a sleeping and feeding schedule, swaddling, changing diapers, and bathing. When working older children, I have helped with homework, art projects, puzzles, play games, and drive them to their sports and extra curricular activities.  I receive great joy from seeing the smiles on children's faces when they are having a good time.  I believe that I create a fun, safe and loving environment for the child/children that I nanny for. I help parents run errands, do the laundry, and make dinner if needed. I take children on field trips around the city, such as, the library, Nature Museum, Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, Little Beans, etc.  I am known for being a helper and love to help out the parents in any way I can. I try my best to be there if parents' need emergency care or even overnight care.  
Just to tell you a little bit about myself, I enjoy cooking, scrapbooking, sports, outdoor activities, crafts, and reading. I am a very positive, fun, nurturing, dependable, patient person, that is family oriented, looking for a wonderful nanny family. Hopefully, I can go through this amazing adventure of parenthood with you. Hope to hear from you soon.
