At the age of 12 I had my first babysitting job for a family of two, a girl at the age of 2 and a boy at the age of 4. From then on, I would babysit for families at my church or family friends. I became an aunt at the age of 14, so I would babysit my little niece all the time. My sister had another little girl when I was 16, so I would babysit them both. In high school, I took two child care classes, one my junior year, which we were taught how to take care of children, and how to create a teaching curriculum. My senior year of high school, I was in the Child Care II class which was two hours long a day, and we even had a small day care at the school were we would take care of over 25 children. I taught a Sunday School Class for over a year for 7 & 8 year olds. I was a full time nanny for 2 years for a family of 4. They had 2 children ages newborn and 3 years old. I am currently an after-school Nanny for 2 girls ages 5 & 10 and love it.

I have been caring for my younger cousins and neighborhood families for as long as i can remember. This includes overnight watching, vacations, and watching children while the parents would be at work. There's really no task i can't handle. Picking up children from school, making dinner, doing laundry, and helping with homework are all things that have just come naturally to me while babysitting for so many years.

Hi, my Name is Staci. I am a mother of two girls, a 5 and 3 year-old. Just a little about my childcare background, I started out in childcare in 1998 I was 18 at the time. I worked as a childcare assistant at xx in Palos Park. I assisted in caring for children of all ages that had been taken in by the state for various reasons. It was an incredibly rewarding job and I fell in love with children then. I continued with that position part-time and also was a Nanny part-time while I got my Associates from Moraine Valley. After obtaining my Associates I continued to nanny for another few years because I truly enjoyed it. I then decided to go out and get a position that pertained to my schooling. I worked as a Master Scheduler for five years before having my own children and then ultimately going back to being a Nanny. Over the last five years I have been with 2 families and also worked for Charter Fitness in the kids room. I am fun, loving and very interactive. I love to play, do crafts, sports and all kinds of activities. I would love the opportunity to meet you and your family and see if we would be a good fit for eachother.
