I have over 30 years of nanny/babysitting experience with children infant thru preteen. The past 4+ years I have worked full time (54 hours weekly) for a professional couple. They commute to Chicago and also work from home at times. I care for their three wonderful children, aged 2,3,& 4 when I began. My job included prepare/serve meals, dress/groom children, organize play, outing's, transport to/from activities, keeping home organized, and feed/walk dog. All three of the children attend school full time now, decreasing my hours to part time. I am looking for full time.

I’m 52 and have raised my 2 daughters who had needs beyond your usual child.
My 18 year old is a brain cancer survivor and my 16 year old has Autism. I mention this because my role as their mother stretched me and grew me in wisdom medically and how to comfort a child.
I hope you will consider me.
