Dinah K. - Seeking Work in Buffalo Grove

Full-time hours

I have extensive experience with children and have always loved taking care of them. Now that I am a mother of my own 5 month old, I have a new found patience for caring for the little ones. I enjoy spending time with the kids reading, writing, singing, playing and even dancing. I take the little ones to play outside and know the importance of fresh air. I do not opt to let kids sit in front of a TV for entertainment and believe human and face to face interaction is the most important. I also will take care of light housework as needed and will do laundry.
