Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have 25+ years total experience in early childhood education, childcare, & nannying. For the past 5 years, I have been employed as a nanny. Currently, for the past 2 yrs, I've been a nanny in Lake Zurich for a family with 1 boy & 1 girl, now ages 2 & 5. Prior to this, I was a nanny for 2 years in Barrington for a family with 2 girls ages 1 & 3 upon start. Before that, I was nanny for over a year to a family in Woodstock with 2 children, ages 1 & 3 upon start. I found all three families either on or because of xx. I was blessed all three times to have been matched with such wonderful families, and I hope very much to be lucky a fourth time! My position with the families came to an end only because the children began kindergarten/ school programs, and a full time nanny was no longer needed. I had wonderful relationships with the families, felt very much "part of the family", and they are all used as references. Prior to nannying, I had been the lead teacher in two, three, & 4-year-old rooms in several daycare centers/ preschools over the years. I have worked as teacher in infant rooms as well. I have also run a daycare/school from my own home. I have experience working with ages newborn through 12 years old. Additionally, I have worked with special needs children having behavioral, learning, and physical challenges including Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, fetal alcohol syndrome, hearing and vision impairment, motor skills disorder, and developmental delays. I have also worked with children who are victims of emotional and physical abuse. I have a BA in Psychology. I am certified in CPR/First Aid. I have completed many in-service class hours of childcare, child safety, &. early childhood & development. I am an interactive, doting mother of two wonderful children: now a young adult boy and a 15-year-old daughter. I am involved in the lives of my many nieces & nephews.
