Hi Families, Thanks so much for viewing my profile! As a mother myself, I understand how difficult it can be to choose a care provider for your little one. I have a wealth knowledge in early childhood education as well as solid experience working with children. During the week, I work full-time as the director of a preschool. I am CPR/First Aid Certified. I have in undergrad in Marketing with a minor in early childhood education from Columbia College Chicago. I am bilingual in Spanish and enjoy exposing the children that I care for to a new language. I became a caregiver because I enjoy working with children, I am creative and I enjoy doing children's activities like jumping in a bounce house or going to an arcade probably just as much as the kids I care for do. I also feel like I have a lot of knowledge I Read more can share with little ones. I love being a caregiver because I get to be creative. I get to imagine. I also get to make new friends, see different perspectives through children and do a ton of different activities that you typically do not get to do working in a conventional office setting. I am a good childcare provider because I am experienced in caring for more than one child at a time, I am patient, I am educated in early childhood education and I am a mother of a 4 year old myself. Looking forward to meeting new families soon!

Jessica is extremely professional, kind and full of joy when working with our 5 month old daughter. She is proactive and so helpful in all regards. Our daughter loves being with her even when she is teething and miserable. Jessica is always reading, singing or talking with her which she enjoys.

Jessica was amazing! She took care of my daughter for my wedding day and went above and beyond. She kept my daughter entertained, made her flower girl crown and even cleaned up the house before we go home. It was a long day for her and she was upbeat and energetic the entire time. Definitely recommend!

Jessica was wonderful—called before the first booking to touch base, sent me a photo an hour into the sitting and played, fed, put both my girls down for naps...and picked up our living room and play room. I would definitely book her again.

Jessica was wonderful! I booked her for a moms group, and even though our other sitter had to cancel at the last minute, Jessica handled it like a champ. She brought bubbles and games and was very engaged, friendly, and responsible. I would definitely book her again!

I highly recommend Jessica. She is a patient and caring caregiver. She got along very well with my 4 year old and 2.5 year old. My 2.5 did not make it easy for her to take care of him. She finished cooking dinner for my kids and even washed the dishes, which was a wonderful surprise. The place sparkled and my kids were calm and happy when I returned home.

Fantastic. Great connection with our kids, and we came home to a clean house. I'd love to have Jessica again.

Jessica was great! She came a few minutes early to get settled, immediately put my boys (1 1/2 & 3 1/2) at ease. She send me a photo of them smiling and playing while I was out, and when I came home she had made dinner, fed them and she even cleaned up after their dinner! The boys loved her, my older son was so sad she had to leave that he cried. I hope we can have her back again soon.
