I am currently looking for a family to join in on a nanny share with my current nanny family in Evanston. I have been with my current family for two years and have developed a strong and loving bond with the children and parents alike. Both girls will be in school in the mornings, leaving me open to take on a new family part time or full time.
I have lived in the Chicagoland area for a little over 5 years and have great idea of where all the cool 'kid friendly' hang outs are! Crafting is one of my main hobbies and I am always looking for new fun and exciting things to do with children. I enjoy encouraging them to be creative and step out of the box. While at the same time offering them the love and nurturing that they need. I am easy going and very patient.
A little about my background in the nanny/child care field...
I graduated with my bachelors in child development from NIU in 2008. Prior to college, I babysat just as almost every teenager did. The only thing that set me apart from your typical teenage babysitter was the fact that I also babysat for families with special needs children. This brought me to work for Easter Seals Dupage in the suburbs, in their child care center. This was an inclusive child care center which also gave me experience working with a variety of ages and abilities. During college I also nannied for several families. After graduation, I moved to Indianapolis where I worked as a primary infant teacher at Bright Horizons. I worked there until I decided Chicago was the place where I wanted to ultimaltely settle.
I hope that I will be a great fit for your family!
Please feel free to contact me for a list of references and full resume.
