Hi.... I've been here for one year. I'm looking for babysitting job in the Oak park area. I used to take care of my nieces and nephews...oh....I've  missed them too much...... :(   I am architect and right now I am studying English and I've applied for another master program in UIC . I am 36 years old.

We need one more artist to fill the class.  Please check it out.  Well - if you haven't checked into the Oak Park Art League's classes - you should do that anyway BUT the Monday class - well I know some pretty great kids who are in it already.

Hi Molly - welcome!  Another vote for Pedios.  We usually see Dr Turk and love her!

Hi Molly, I love Pedios, Ltd on Chicago Ave.  They have been wonderful with all three of my children.  Here is a link to their website.  I really love their morning call in hour.  You can call in and ask questions to the doctor immediately instead of waiting for the message to go through a nurse and you don't have to go in!!  I have used it many times.  We have seen everyone in the office between the 3 of them, but our doctor is Dr. Heather Haukness. Good luck with everything!

Hi Molly, welcome to Oak Park! Many of us go to Oak Park Pediatrics. They'd a an ad with a link to their website in the homepage. We've been seeing Dr Thompson.

My family just moved here from NYC and I'm eager to find community/friends for my 8 yr old daughter and myself. (My husband is a native Chicagoan.) For now I'd be very grateful if parents in Oak Park would share recommendations for pediatricians and babysitters. We really don't need a nanny, just the odd evening here or there or I'd contact some of the childcare providers who recently posted here.

Thanks for any info.

Hello moms of Oak Park,

I just moved to the neighborhood and am a full time nanny looking for work. I have 5 years experience, primarily with infants and great references. If you know of anyone that is in search of a great nanny please pass along my information. My email address is and a link to my profile is below.

Hi All!  I'm due August 3 with my first.  I'll need infant care beginning in late October and wanted to put feelers there anyone out there that would want to do a nanny share around that time?  Any recommendations for in-home or commercial daycares?  Thanks :-)

Hi, I'm an Oak Park preschool teacher looking to spend my summer off with a babysitting/nannying job.  I have 4 years of school setting teaching experience and 2 years of day care experience, as well as 10+ years of babysitting/nannying experience.  I am currently in grad school, so I am hoping to find a family that requires part-time help.  Send me a message if you think we'd be a good fit for each other.  Thanks!

Hi, Moms of Oak Park! I'm not a mom yet (my husband and I are approaching our first anniversary!) but I am a certified music educator/pianist and am hoping to start teaching again this summer when we move to the area permanently. 

I have years of experience working with students from age 4-15 and truly love being able to share music with aspiring musicians! If you're interested in lessons for your kids, feel free to contact me:   

I'm more than happy to send along a resume, references (past piano students' moms and my university instructors) and letters of recommendation!

Hope to hear from you soon!!
