Hi im Candice, 37 and I live in the philippines. I am already experienced as I have 4 kids myself. and I'm proud to say that I have raised them ever since I was pregnant. my 2nd child was diagnosed with ADHD and yes he is ok now.. I don't know CPR but I am willing to be trained. I am a very fast learner so you need not worry about me learning new stuff. I graduated with a college degree so perhaps I can tutor your children as well, for free. I am very well organized and I intend to ensure that kids needs are met. Moreover, love kids, as you can see I have 4 myself.

My name is Victoria, I’m 18 years old. I absolutely love children, I started babysitting when I was 14 years old and I’ve had a passion to work with children ever since. They really make a difference in ones life and bring tons of happiness! At the moment I work at the Waldorf preschool, but I’m looking for something a bit more consistent and nannying definitely fits that category.

Therese Capriglione
San Francisco$23/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hi, my name is Therese. I'm a cat person, yoga-lover and spiritual being.

I'm looking to relocate from Santa Fe as a live-in nanny to, ideally, the West Coast but am open to elsewhere. I graduate from Indiana University in December 2020 with a degree in Management (school being online means I now have the time and capacity to work a full-time job).

I began babysitting my cousin's toddlers while I was in middle school; babysat for local families throughout high school and college as well as nannied for local families during summer break. I've babysat infants, toddlers, twins and even triplets.

Through my experience, I've grown to be a fully present, receptive and responsible caretaker. I practice meditation and mindfulness, and I take this knowledge with me while I babysit. I'm very patient with children because I understand that their brains are still trying to understand themselves, their emotions and the world around them.

I'd love to learn more about you and your family!

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.

& Azalea Sanchez
San Francisco$26/hr  |  1 kid
I have a wonderful nanny and am in a share situation right now. The family we share with be moving this summer/fall. My 19 month old son is thriving in this set up and loves his nanny and buddy. The nanny takes them on daily walks and attends music and other class activities in the neighborhood with the kids. She is very patient, loving and kind with the children. I host at my home three days a week and the other family hosts two days a week. Although we’re sad to lose our share we are very excited to meet another child/family. :)

Central Waterfront, San Francisco$32/hr  |  1 kid
We're looking for a family to join our nanny share (Dogpatch/Mission Bay/Potrero preferred) and would love any referrals. Our daughter is 18mo old, and we have a wonderful nanny that has been with us for 14 months! She's kind & loving - please message with any interest for additional details.
The Gonzalez Family
& Irina Llorenes
Pacific Heights, San Francisco$30/hr  |  1 kid
We are looking for a family to join our sharecare. Our daughter is 20 months old.

Our amazing nanny - Irina is an absolute gem. She has worked as a nanny for several other families and before joining us worked in a sharecare setting with two boys for 3 years until they were ready for preschool. I honestly interviewed a dozen people when we were looking to set up our original arrangement and she was so clearly of a different caliber. She is full of energy, incredibly warm, very focused on the children's development, and reliable. She ensures that there is ample stimulation and takes the girls to a local activity (music class / library) every morning and spends lots of time with them in the park. She also cooks healthy meals, reads lots of books (never turns the TV on), and keeps the area tidy. She speaks Spanish to the girls but is also completely fluent in english (she is from Mexico but here legally for over 10 years). Most importantly, Irina genuinely loves the girls and gives them an incredibly nurturing environment.

Our family:

Our daughter is 20 months old and a very happy toddler. We are both working professionals and moved to SF about two years ago from NYC.

The details, location, and current set up:

Our sharecare family's last day is Sept 7th, so we'd love to have the other family start around then (I'm sure we can find flexibility in the dates for the right fit). We live in Pacific Heights and currently host the sharecare exclusively in our home (because the other mother worked from home and preferred a little more quiet). Irina currently works with us Mon-Thurs 7am-6pm and Fri 7am-5pm. We are hoping to find a family that is interested in overlapping for at least 40hrs a week (ideally more). Her rates are $30/hr for both children (i.e., each family pays $15/hr) and $22.50 for one child (if you need early/late coverage or for babysitting).

The Dorian Family
& Mylla Miranda
South of Market, San Francisco$14/hr  |  1 kid
We are two working parents who are so in love with our little Beckett! When we found Mylla, after not being able to get Beckett into a daycare - it was like a sigh of relief. She is incredible! She is also bi lingual - Portuguese is her first language. Mylla is open to speaking to your child in English/Portuguese or both (what she does with Beckett) and also works sign language into Becketts mealtimes. Mylla taught young children language in Brazil before becoming an Au Par. Mylla plays, reads, they do sing a long and practice all kinds of ever changing developmental activities throughout the day. Beckett naps in his nursery and we would have a very comfortable brand new pack n play available for another child to nap in our loft(He has only used it twice). You would be welcome to store your own toys, feeding supples, books, etc here full time so that it would minimize having to bring things back and forth. We also have a highchair and floor chair with tray for feeding two at a time. If you work close by Mylla is completely open to parents popping in and out to say hi (we do that sometimes too:) We are very excited about finding a family who is looking for the same things we have found, while helping minimize the cost of childcare in the city. We look forward to meeting you and looking for a mutually great fit for both our families!

Betty is the best! She is a mother of 3 grown children and a grandmother. We've had her with our family since my daughter was 4 months old and she has been perfection. Never late, always reliable, takes my daughter to the Zoo, Academy of Science, Golden Gate Park, and to play groups at the community center. She has other nanny friends so my daughter is always playing with others. She will even do babysitting on weekends and evenings and has been there for us on short notice. The. Best.

Mallory A.

She was always on time with a great attitude. She did not just supervise the children, she played and interacted with them, too. Flexible and honest, we were consistently impressed with Mallory. We even took her on a trip with us to provide trusted childcare and she was reasonable, patient, and reliable. Very highly recommend. Sad she moved. - Lauren

Sol C.

Sol is very good with children and speaks both English and Spanish with them. Our children were happy to see her every time, and enjoyed the time they were together. We told her that they were her children, when she had them. She was great to take them on outings around town, and to the park. She is very good with being positive and in a good mood, we were sorry to see her go. - BJoy

Naila A.

During this duration I found naila is hardworking honest and sincere toward her work.her way of communication is great. Personally she is gteat girl - Farida

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in San Francisco, 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 San Francisco can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

San Francisco 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.
