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.

Diana started nannying for us when my children were 2 and 4. They are now 11 and 13 and we are still very close with Diana. She’s like family to us which shows how much we value her. She did a wonderful job with my kids. She took them to all the parks, the museum, library, etc. They were her priority. She also helped with meals and tidying. She will forever be a special part of our family. - Heather

We look for consistency and fun first and foremost in a nanny, and that is Diana all around! Our kiddos never want us to pick them up when they’re with her, and she’s always willing to go the extra mile with things like cleaning, cooking, and arts and crafts! - Sonja
