Hi parents! My name is Phyllis. I am from Chicago, IL. Last year, I graduated from Western Illinois University with my degree in Communications.

My care for children started when my mom and her friends always would say " Phyllis kids just love you, you"are a natural". When I was 17 yrs old, I was given an awesome internship as a teacher"s aid for first grade at Passages Charter Elementary School, located in Chicago IL. That experience opened a lot of doors for me. Not only did the school invite me back to help out with the children they offered me the after school instructor position, at the age of 19. The after school program was for children ages 6-10. My task was to make sure the children complete their homework and the left over time was on fun educational games.

I started nannying after I left high school. I met a lovely family that offered me a nanny/manager position for the summer. I was in charge of two 5 months old baby boys (twins) along with their 3-year-old sister. I was with this family for 4 years .

Doors continued to open, from getting babysitting gigs through the school to people requesting my services baste off of former employers.
I have been babysitting/ nannying for over 8years now! I was a former student athlete in college where I played soccer and ran track, so I am very active and love playing any kind of sports with the kids I take care of! I also love being outdoors, arts and crafts, going to amusement parks, and finding cool, new places to go around Chicago. When I graduated college I Ianded a job as a preschool teacher last year for several months. I met a family through my class that hired me to be a after school nanny.soon on after I also became her weekend nanny as well.

Teaching is awesome but I love the one-on-one interaction that comes with being a nanny. I am currently working for a family as a nanny house manager in Wilmette with two boys, ages 7 and 10. Although, I adore this family There will be a change in location so I am looking for a new job within the next month. I am also working part-time once a week for a family with newborn and a three year old.
I am looking for a fun, friendly family to work for full-time! I believe it takes a certain type of person to work with children and I'm highly qualified!

*Please note I will be out of the state & country from April 10th-24th for my wedding and honeymoon.*

Hi, and thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Mirella and I absolutely love children! I've been working with them for more than 18 years now.

I graduated from Columbia College studying music business management & marketing, as well as early childhood education. I also have a masters degree in internet marketing. I have extensive experience and education in child development that I am constantly continuing. I have been a professional babysitter, professional nanny, daycare provider, nursery attendant, camp counselor, tutor, ECE teacher (birth-2nd grade) and Newborn Care Specialist (birth-18months). I am bilingual in English and Spanish, as well as CPR and First Aid trained and certified. I participated in the 2012 to 2016 national nanny training days, happiest baby on the block, and nanny Stella of nanny 911 certifications. I'm an active member of the International Nanny Association. I am currently studying baby sign language. I am also the child care provider for the cast & crew of 3 TV shows filming in Chicago. Lastly, I was nominated for America's Top Sitter 2014. In early 2016 I created, hosted, and spoke at Chicago Nanny Training Day 2016. In August 2016 I became a certified Postpartum Doula and in December 2016, a Labor Doula.

Most importantly, I truly adore children! I treat each child as if they are my own to give them the best love and care possible. I love encouraging language, music, and reading. I also love to do outdoor activities and arts & crafts. More than anything, I love being a positive and loving influence on their development and in their lives.

I have trained my fellow sitters on Newborn Care. I also provide one on one or small group workshops for parents, as well as nanny hiring and training.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my fiance, friends and family. I also love to travel, support the arts, and do charity work.

So whether it's spending the day with your precious little one, training your full-time caregiver, or giving you support, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Take care! :-)

Hello! My name is Dani. I live in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood with my fiancé! I have been a nanny/sitter for the same family for the last 7 years and cared after their two girls (ages 7 and 9 now) since infancy, whom I absolutely grew to love! I have also cared for their baby cousin in between, and most times all 3 of them (he is now 18 months). I have babysat/nannied for plenty of other families with children of all ages for date nights/on occasion/weekend sitting with children ranging from infant to pre teen ages. The main family that I was with just recently moved away, which is my reason for searching for a new family. I am also super comfortable with and adore pets of all shapes and sizes, if that applies. I truly love bonding with babies and children of all ages and the overall nature of the "job". I like to spend my spare time doing lots of creative activities as well, which I like to incorporate in my nanny/sitter style. I have also spent many years volunteering (mainly at battered women’s shelters in the city) accompanying the children there and helping them socialize and grow through various activities. I truly love giving back where I can! It’s so important that these children grow up in a safe, nurturing, positive environment with people around who genuinely care and can help mold them into awesome individuals. I’m always willing to roll my sleeves up and get the job done, whatever that may be! I am completely comfortable with light house keeping and picking up after your child/children and preparing their food. I am also first aid/CPR trained/certified and speak intermediate/moderate Spanish if you would like to start your child off with learning a new language. I can also provide both personal and professional references with no problem. I believe I can be a great addition to any family and would love to create another close bond with whomever I work with next. Thank you so much for reading— please feel free to message me with any questions, hope to hear from you soon!

With an extensive background in childcare as well as a nurturing spirit, I am confident that I can provide
excellent care to your child and support for your family. For over six years I have cared for children, birth
through elementary school, in different capacities. Starting as a 12 year old volunteer in my church’s
nursery, volunteering in schools, orphanages, hospital pediatric units, and most recently as a nanny, I
have cultivated skills in ensuring children’s emotional and physical wellbeing.
I put my heart into my work as a nanny. I believe it is vital to foster a relationship with children built on
mutual trust and respect. I believe this is best achieved through being fully present and engaged while
investing in their growth and development by creating a safe, loving, and structured environment. I truly believe it is my calling to work with children and have for as long as I can remember. My
qualification as a Registered Nurse gives me special insight into a child’s wellbeing. I can rock any baby

books, music, and art and love sharing that with others. I am meticulous and very organized. I am great
at keeping schedules and routines while at the same time am flexible to adapt to new situations and
opportunities. I maintain open communication with parents and appropriately act on feedback received.
I really look forward to speaking with you more about your family’s needs and how I could be a part of
your child’s life.
