My experience is from infant to early teens. I'm very active and reliable. The creative side of me is what makes being a nanny so fun. i always have something planned. I worked my last nanny position for 8 years in the Lisle/Downers Grove area. I did everything from the childcare, running errands to walking the dog.I also had a position p/t with a family in the Joliet area caring for an infant and 15 month old. This was a 3 year position on a as need basis.I'm very caring and like the long term positions best. I will consider temps. and p/t if the situation works for us both. It's important for family and nanny to communicate and be happy. I take my career seriously but at the same time the kids and I have fun. I also have a medical back ground which is good to have when around active children.If you want reliable, responsible, and fun in one nanny that would have to be me.
