Hi! I'm maddie and I am the oldest of three siblings. I had to take care of them when my parents went away on business trips or stayed late at the office as well as my neighbors kids. I have had experience with many families and watched their kids in private homes for about 6 years. I have worked with ages from infant to teen and love all kids. I have worked as an assistant in schools, camp counselor and with special needs children. I'm very fun and loving and have a lot of patience with kids. I don't go to school as of now and am looking to make money with something I I love to do.

Hi! I’m a mother of three beautiful boys, ages 6 mo., 3 yrs, and 4 yrs. My four year old attends preschool a few days a week. I’m looking to nanny another little one close in age to my own, as I would be bringing my own children to nanny! I’m looking to financially help my family, while doing what I love, with the people I love! My philosophy on children is to be kind, warm, and gentle, yet firm. I love the outdoors, eating healthy, dancing, reading, and singing with my children. I am CPR certified. I am also currently pursuing my Masters of Arts in Teaching, Elementary Education.

I’m great with kids and babies. Plus they all basically love me. We have fun playing all sorts of awesome games inside when it’s too cold or rainy and outside always when the weather permits. Every moment is a learning experience, even snack time. Nap time is a moment to regroup and reenergize for all of us. I’m reliable, responsible, dedicated, and lots of fun. Plus kids love me ☺️

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.

Looking for another family with a baby to join our share! We have a single level home with a dedicated playroom. We live very close to an excellent park with lots of shade. We already have an excellent experienced and loving nanny. She is smart, completely bilingual, hard working, neat and tidy. We trust her with the safety of our child, as that is our number one priority. Our baby is all smiles with her. Looking forward to finding the right family! Thanks!

Saranap, Walnut Creek$26/hr  |  2 kids
TLDR: We have an amazing nanny that we are still paying but not currently using due to COVID. We are looking for a family who would like her services now and then be part of a nanny share with us once things are safe to resume. We will continue paying our part until that happens. Shared cost the entire time but solo nanny for you until we resume.

More Details:

We are so lucky to have the best Nanny in the world. She was with her last family for 8 years, and we have been lucky enough to have her as part of our family for the last 4 years. She is loving, friendly, constantly teaches our daughters and takes them to a variety of activities (Pre-COVID). She has gone above and beyond countless times for us, including making me this amazing father's day present with our daughter's help :)

The family we nanny shared with for the last 1.5 years is not able to continue. They are super sad to be leaving and are happy to share how much they loved our nanny and our girls being best friends.

We are looking for another family to nanny share with. Once we resume things we would like to have the share at our house as it has been the past four years. In the meantime, we will still be paying our nanny and you will only have to pay $13 per hour to have her by yourself (until we resume).

Our Setup Once Share Resumes (likely several months away):

Nanny share at our house in Saranap (on the border between Lafayette and Walnut Creek).

We have two daughters (4 years old and 1 year old). We have a big playroom for the kids and all the toys etc...Large yard with sandbox, swings, slide etc... We have an 11 year old dog that hangs out and sleeps on the couch all day as well. She is super gentle and sweet with kids but wanted to be sure to share that.

We normally do 8:45 to 5:45 Monday - Friday. Your share would be $13 per hour.

Open to a range of ages but with our 4 year old starting Kindergarten in a year it might be best to have someone around 1 or 2 years old.

Paige T.

Paige babysat my kids a few times, while I was out of town for a wedding and a date night with my husband. When we came back home, at night, the house was tidy and there were no toy messes. My kids said they watched Moana, played board games, and read books. The kids were clean and in bed before bedtime, too! She did an amazing job! - A Church Mom

Paige T.

She is super loving, and always brings a smile to my daughter. She would babysit play dates, when my child had her friends over. Paige played dress up, colored and painted, even played house and pretend kitchen. My daughter still talks about Paige today! - Rebecca

What really amazed me with Jasmine's work ethic was her way of communicating what her schedule was like and able to accommodate with things I would like her to do. My nephew really loves her and she helps him with making him food & anything he might need. Definitely recommend! - Brian

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Walnut Creek, 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 Walnut Creek can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Walnut Creek 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.
