Jillian U. - Seeking Work in Westville

17.14 / hour

I graduated in 2010 in Palos Park, IL. with an A.A.S in Early Childhood Education. I interned at a Center(about 230 hours in total). I took a first aid class and I was CPR certified for children and adults (it recently expired). I currently work in valparaiso, IN as a nanny M,T,Th,F from 8-2. I care for a 4yr old & soon to be 2yr old both boys and I absolutly love my job but im looking for something full time or part time to supplement since I really hate to leave the family I'm with now but I have to do what's best for me. I babysat a lot in high school, mostly infants and toddlers of friends of the family and the neighbors third grade kids, the "quads" (3boys & 1 girl). I still watch my friends kids on occasion when they ask to stay with me. I have experience with all ages (infants and toddlers being my favorite ages) and I'm totally comfortable with cats and dogs of any size. I'm also comfortable with light housework, running errands and cooking is not a problem.
