Full-time hours

I have experience babysitting for children ages infant-10 years of age both for family, friends and neighborhood families throughout the last 10+ years. I also studied to be an educator at UIC before pursuing my career as a stylist. My greatest and most valuable experience in child care would be becoming a parent myself! The innate patience, understanding and love for a child that comes with motherhood is the greatest past experience of all.

Hello, my name is Ryann & I am 19 years old. I live in New Lenox and graduated from Lincoln-way Central in 2017. During the school year, I will be taking online classes so I have extreme flexibility in scheduling. My passion for kids started at a young age- I started babysitting when I was 13, was an aid for a preschool for 2 years, volunteer at gigi’s Playhouse, & am nannying. I am extremely comfortable with children of all ages, following any routines you have, meal prep, light housekeeping, laundry, etc. I worked downtown as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant (CNA) for about a year at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center so I am CPR certified & first aid trained. I have a clean driving record , have reliable transportion, & am a non-smoker!
