I have been babysitting since I was in 7th grade. At that time I was watching kids that were 3 and 5. As the years went on, I watched more children with various ages. I also have four siblings, whose ages are 20,17,15, and 10 years old. In the past two years, I have been a part of my church nursery at xx Church. In the nursery I work with children from 3 months- 2 years old. I also work in our preschool and elementary classrooms which range from 3-10 years old. And in the past year I have been taking care of my infant cousin since she was a month old. I also have experience with children with autism.

Hey! I'm Sophie. I am a very dependable, responsible, and loving individual looking for a family to care for! I really enjoy caring for, playing with, and helping children learn and grow. I love keeping them busy with educational things like, playing outdoors, going for walks, playing at parks, and doing arts & crafts. I have been around kids for most of my life since I have 3 younger siblings, and started helping my mom care for them when I was young. I currently have the privilege of caring for a young girl, and have been for the past 2 years, but I am looking to get more hours. I have also had the opportunity to care for an adorable 16 mo. little guy for the past 10 months. I love being outdoors, playing yard games with my family, gardening, volleyball, swing dancing, piano, sewing, crafts, cooking and baking. I hope to share some of my interest with your family! I am willing to care for your pets as well if needed. I look forward to talking with, and meeting you & your little ones!

I have been a nanny since i was 18 years old .I am currently 25. My first nanny job was for a family in the upper bluff of Joliet. I nannied for them right out of high school full-time and stayed with them for four years. My hours were 7 am to 6pm Monday through Friday, sometimes including weekends. When I started the children were at the ages of 2,4,6,8. They are homeschooled and the teacher came to the house. The children were not allowed to do anything electronically during the weekdays unless it had to do with school. No TV, games, computer, xbox, iPads etc. My job consisted of coming up with atlas two crafts activities weekly and two meals to cook for dinner where they could help. I meal prepped, changed diapers, helped with schooling, prepared play dates, came up with many crafts and made our own games( even board games that helped with cleaning up ), did laundry, breakfast, lunch, dinner etc with the food groups included in each meal, took walks daily unless the weather stopped us from doing so , and tried making everyday fun and exciting . My second year into working they had another child and I was with her since day 1. I helped the mom out and shadowed her for the first few weeks learning how to do things and when she went back cared for the infant. I prepared bottles, diaper changes, stages of feeding, read to her, helped teach her how to read/ talk / use a spoon etc. It was an amazing experience and so rewarding. I lost my job due to the father retiring and being home everyday but they are still family to me. After this I nannied a family for four children at the ages of 3,5,7 and nine for two years and did the same things, but unfortunately they moved away. It came at a time where i had been pregnant and needed to stop working anyways. I now have a son who is one and just a bundle of joy!
