I have been a watching kids since 15 from watching family kids to friends kids. Professional nanny for the past 3 years. I have plenty of experience with newborn/toddlers.

I love seeing their personality blossom and I have plenty of patience. My one cousin that has a 4 yrs tells me all the time. You’re so great with kids have some already but I prefer to give all my love to others. I’m also familiar with Chicago as my family and I grew up in Chicago. I’m very excited to go back to the city. I hope to meet you and your family. Any questions please message me. Thank you

Rogers Park, Chicago$14/hr  |  10 yrs experience
Hi there!! I've held many jobs, but my favorites tend to be involving watching kiddos realize the world around them & being part of the growth! I'm stoked to get back to teaching & learning alongside kids. My availability is fairly flexible, but I do have another job I will be holding onto for a bit.
Chloe Meek
Chicago$18/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Empathic yoga teacher & doula-in-training who enjoys helping children grow & develop confidence & happiness. I encourage development of self-awareness, healthy communication needs & feelings. I'm enthusiastic, nurturing, patient, organized & creative. I love working with kids on creative activities like art, music & more, as well as kicking a ball around, walking or adventuring! My priority is safety, health and happiness.

I'm a detailed caregiver who notices the unnoticed, can read moods and feelings, and help quell anxiety or fear. I teach healthy coping mechanisms, compassion and critical thinking. I love to see personalities shine through.

My goal is to become as integrated as you want me to be with the family. I feel that a nanny is both a great responsibility and an honor.

I also love animals, can train dogs in both basic and service-oriented tasks, and will happily help out around the house as needed (call me crazy, but I love laundry)!

I’ve been a nanny for about 7 years now. I’m currently working in order to pay off my student loan in order to get back into school. I am in the process of getting my degree so I can become a preschool teacher. I’ve taken care of children as young as 6 months and as old as 13 years and will continue helping families for a few more years until I start having kids of my own!

Hi! My names Maliha and I’m 19 years old. Graduated High-school and going into college in a month or so. I love taking care of kids. I want to start saving up for college and this seems the absolute best option. I get to earn my finance as I do what I enjoy and am best at. Taking care of kids. I’m open minded and very flexible when it comes to my schedule. Definitely happy to oblige with any rules given when taking care of ones child. I can only describe myself so much but if an interview is needed from me I’ll be more than happy to meet the parents. I’m as transparent as it gets and nothing matters but the caring of the present’s child and their safety:)
