I am the oldest of 4 so I have many years of babysitting. I am also a baker in my free time. I am able to meal prep and help/perform housekeeping duties.

A little bit about me…

I have been around children of all ages since my childhood. I am the oldest of 6 and started babysitting when I was 10 years old. During my junior and senior year of high school I worked as an aide in a daycare center and took several classes from the community college in early childhood development. Then in 2001 I worked as a nanny for a family of three with children ages 9,6, and 1 in Naperville, IL for 6 months. The reason for the short duration is that the mother was transferred to Britain for work and they wanted a local nanny. Because of the time that has past I have been unable to keep in touch with this family. But I would like to say that we got along really well and I had a great relationship with the children. It was just too far for me to go at that time in my life. I then continued my collegiate studies in early childhood development and worked in a center for childhood development as a preschool teacher for 1.5 years. I have also cared for my brother's children, now 8, 6, 3 and 1 year old, since they were babies. I have watched them daily, nightly, and even weekly so the parents could get away or go on vacation. I am a very responsible person and have a lot of patience and love when it comes to children. I can multi-task with housekeeping duties while keeping the children engaged in whatever activity they are or need to be in at the time. I love watching children discover new things and to be engaged with them while they are experiencing new things. I believe children learn the best through play and enjoy creating activities inside and out whether we are at the park or going for a walk or bike ride. I believe that children need a structured or consistent environment with educational based activities through play like I mentioned before. Caring for children comes natural to me and I truly enjoy the time and experiences I've had working with children.
