My name is Nicole and I was born and raised in Chicago. I have 32 years of childcare experience, 25 years of of which are as a professional nanny. I have expertise with children from birth through 17 years of age. I have extensive experience with newborn through 6 years of age. I am well versed in teaching children life skills and getting them ready for preschool, kindergarten and beyond. I love teaching small children through play and song and older ones through games and other age appropriate activities. I love taking children on outings (pre covid) to the park on walks or to museums and other fun and educational activities. I believe in being honest and loving with children. I am looking for a family that will consider me part of the team so we can all be on the same page and allow the children to thrive with that continuity. I have been told more than one four-year-old that I am better than Mary Poppins and have been compared to Supernanny by more than one family. I absolutely love working with children and love watching them grow and change. I am a hard worker, honest and very dedicated to any family that I work for. I am very punctual because I understand how important it is that I am there on time so the parents can get to their work on time. I take care of sick children. I am CPR and first aid certified and I am a non smoker. I own my own car and I have a clean driving record. I live with my 78 year old mother so I take Covid very seriously. I am currently looking for a full time position preferably long term but would consider temporary or part time that turns into full time as well.
