Hi there! My name is Colleen, I'm 27years old and I live on the southside of Chicago. I was a full-time Special Education Teachers Aide for an elementary school in Beverly, Illinois since 2009 where I worked one-on-one with special needs children ranging from kindergarten to 5th grade.
I want to be your child care provider because since I was about 13 years old I was very much involved with watching children in my family and/or in the neighborhood. Taking care of children truthfully just comes natural to me. I wanted to be a pre-school teacher and open my own day care service, but I've switched my major because I wish to work in Social Work and hopefully become a School Counselor.
*I have no children of my own, however, I have 6 nieces & 2 nephews; ages 5months - 11years old that basically live at my parents house in Oak Lawn.
*I am willing to watch children of all ages; newborn-12 years old at the oldest, after that age, I believe they're too old for a sitter, however I have no problem helping with homework or driving anywhere.
*I have no rules for the family, you are their parents, I will follow your rules that you provide for your children.
*I believe in going outside, exercising and having fun; arts and crafts, swimming, going to the park, photography, playing softball, basketball, volleyball & football, riding bikes, doing whatever the children genuinely enjoy. I do not care for video games. I love to play outside games, I'm a Pisces which makes me a very creative, fun, and energetic person who loves to smile, make people laugh and take tons of pictures.
*I am willing to travel to your house, I have my own transportation. I'm extremely easy to get along with and am a very reliable person. I would love to find a job.
*Rates are negotiable depending on hours/ location/ and number of children of course.
