Looking for work as a babysitter or nanny

  • 10 years paid experience
  • Age 34
  • Nanny in Chicago, IL 60601

Meet Aruna

  • Speaks French and Hindi
  • Comfortable with pets

I have been baby-sitting for 18 years and have watched children ages 3 weeks to 12 years old. I have worked in three different day cares, all in the infant room. I have also babysat for over 165 families. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED, renewed in December 2017. I have come to believe that the core of child care is truly loving kids and helping them become the best versions of themselves. I learn something new from each child I have the privilege of babysitting, and most of all, I love getting the opportunity to nurture kids when they are young! I'm also actively involved in the Second City Acting program. I absolutely love engaging children in creative role-play! Finally, I also teach in the Northwestern Program for Gifted Students. I love making learning fun, and it is my dream to open an empowerment institute for Read more kids one day.

Aruna has cared for our son at least two days each week for most of his life. She began working with us when he was a newborn and he is now 4 1/2 months old. Aruna is an excellent resource for a first time parent, we have learned so much from her. Moreover, we trust her implicitly and she is a joy to be around. Our son has developed a very strong bond with her and it is important to note that we have also. She has truly become a part of our family and we feel fortunate to have her in our lives.

Aruna cared for our 5-month-old daughter for a 5-day period while her daycare facility was closed for spring break. Since I work from home, I had the opportunity to closely observe Aruna's style of care. I was very impressed with Aruna's preparation. She arrived each day armed with numerous options of things to do with our daughter, and always with backup plans in case the weather (or our daughter) didn't cooperate. On nice days, Aruna and our daughter went for walks, visited the library downtown, and attended classes at the Bubble Academy. On the cold and rainy days, she made cookies, sang songs, read books, and played with our daughter. I felt as if our daughter was in loving, capable hands whenever she was in Aruna's care. I highly recommend Aruna to any parent looking for a prepared, proactive, inventive and loving caregiver!
