Jeanie Grant
Oakland$15/hr  |  13 yrs experience
I’m 32 years old and have been working in the field of Hospitality and Guest Services for the past 14 years. My most recent job with children was managing a Children’s Science Museum in Seattle, but I have 1 baby niece and 4 nephews under 10 that have kept me active in raising children. I started working at a young age and had 3 families that I consistently nannied for throughout high school. I was known for my art project and elaborate make believe games. I have chosen to return to childcare now because I know that I have a creative approach to playtime that encourages learning and imagination that would benefit children while Covid-19 restrictions are in place. I have a BFA in Art History and Studio Art and love to pass on my passion for creative learning to youth. I enjoy a very active lifestyle and would promote active play and outdoor activities where possible.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Nanny Shares in Oakland, CA
The Valenzuela Family
Oakland$17/hr  |  1 kid
We are looking to join a nanny share starting in mid-January 2021. Our little boy was born in September! My husband and I both work from home so ideally, we would love to have another family host. We are open to both part and full-time options!
The Pretzlav Family
Bushrod, Oakland$18/hr  |  1 kid
Hello! We are looking for another family to form a nanny share starting Jan 2021 for our son, who will be 3 months. We live in Bushrod area near Dover Park and would love to find another family close by if possible. We’re ideally looking for a nanny share that will last a couple of years (until preschool) and so would like to find another kid around the same age. We have the space to co-host but as we expect to be working from home for a while still would appreciate sharing hosting responsibilities.

Ideally we are looking for ~25-30 hours in Jan and Feb ramping up to full time in March. We would be open to full time starting in January as well. We're interested in paying fair wage, sick time, vacation, and other benefits. We are being very Covid risk-averse given our kiddo is so small and are looking for a family doing the same (working from home, minimal grocery store trips, etc). Once we find a family, we will start looking for a nanny, unless you have one already.

Kealie is an environmental scientist, Alex is a software engineer, and baby August is just plain adorable (IMO).

Adela R.

Adela was an amazing childcare provider and really loved our daughter. She was punctual, clean, and communicative about the babies. She also washed dishes and tidied up around the house, which was a huge help! - Dusty

Adela R.

When Adela held our 3-month old daughter in her arms and looked in her eyes, we were amazed at our daughter's attentive response. We found this is because Adela is truly loving and talented with children. Sadly due to the pandemic we couldn't continue the relationship, but I highly recommend her. - Charlotte

Joia E.

Joia is a very caring nanny, who takes her work seriously and understands the huge responsibility that she is entrusted with. She is affectionate with children and has a lot of patience.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Oakland, CA

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Oakland can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Oakland Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in California?
  • Do you have a California driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
