I have cared for a family of three; 8 month boy, 7 year old boy and a 9 year old boy with severe cerebal palsy. I was a nanny for them for 2 years before they moved out of state on a job transfer. Before that, I was a Nanny for Wyatt, he was 8 and had severe autism. I taught him beginner Spanish, and aided his teacher in the classroom with him. I worked with him for a year and then his mother decided to stay home with him full time. Since then, I became a xx and work part time, but I would like to become a Nanny again. I really enjoyed the families that I worked for, and would love to find another famiy!

I worked for a family in Villa Park during high school doing after school care. I worked with them for two years for their daughter from three months old until she was two and a half. I stopped being their full time nanny when the mother got laid off, but still continue to do time to time babysitting for the family, which has grown to two children. The kids are now seven, which is the daughter I care for at a younger age, and their son who is now two and a half.

Hello! I love caring for kids. It's such a passion of mine! Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than playtime, reading stories or doing an educational activity and seeing a child's response to it and how they grow over time. I am an experienced CNA with about five years of experience, with about three of those years being with children ages 2 months to 21 years of age. I have always had a passion for working with others. Growing up, my mother ran a daycare out of our home. I believe this is what gave me my passion to care for others. I love interacting with children, helping out with crafts, being active outdoors and helping them learn. I am a very loving, responsible, dependable and honest person. I have experience working with multiple children of different ages at once. I am currently seeking a position that averages around 20-30 hours a week. I hope to hear from you soon!
