Hi! My husband and I just had our son. I'll be returning to work in mid-December, when our son August will be about 4 months old. We're looking for a nanny to take care of Gus for about the next year.

A little about us:

We'd be looking for nanny support from ~8a-5p. 
We live in Rockridge, which has some great parks in walking distance. 
We're looking for light house cleaning and meal prep, to the extent that Gus's schedule allows
We both work in San Francisco - Tre in media, myself in tech, though we've both been working from home since March. 
We want to create a great partnership with our nanny!

What we're looking for:
Someone with nanny experience with babies (4-12 months)
Someone who likes spending their days with babies (since they aren't always as entertaining as older kids)
Someone warm and affectionate 
Someone who wants to be hands-on with play and cuddles, but also knows how to help babies grow more independent (good sleep habits, self play, etc)

Let me know if you're interested in connecting! Look forward to getting to know you.

About us: My husband and I live in Rockridge, Oakland with our two kids - Niko who is 3 years old and Mia who is 6 weeks old. I am on parental leave until early September and my husband is working from home right now.

What we are looking for: We need part time care primarily for our toddler (3 years), with occasional hours for our infant (6 weeks) as well. For right now, we are looking for approximately 25 hours a week (something like 9am-2pm daily but flexible). Occasional weekend availability is nice to have. If the arrangement works out we would love to convert to full time care for our infant when I go back to work in September. We think we will start out just with our family but

Additional responsibilities: We’d ideally like to find a nanny who can do light housekeeping (e.g. laundry, putting away dishes, tidying up) and meal prep for dinner. Nice to have is a drivers license so you can go to parks (we have a car you can use if needed).

Hello! We are new parents of a little boy that was born November 2019.

We're looking to coordinate with another family to find a full-time (Monday-Friday) nanny share starting on March 30. We are open to starting a nanny share part-time in March if that's better for another family.

The family and nanny we work with must be okay with pets because we have one cat.

We are willing to host in our 2-bed, 2-bath apartment conveniently located close to the MacArthur BART station.

We hope to connect with some of you soon!

The Hasson Family
Forestland, Oakland$20/hr  |  1 kid
First time parents, expecting a baby Girl in January 2020. I will need to go back to work in March 2020 and so we wanted to get a head start on finding someone great for our little one. We are open to sharing with another family. Part time, 24 hours a week including Saturdays and Sundays as our schedule is cyclical. Both of us work in healthcare so we are not your typical M-F family. Shifts would start as early as 6am. Would love it if you came to our home in Montclair, but we are flexible if the fit is right. Clean Driver's license please and background check, non-smoker, female preferred, experience working with infants, BLS certified. If you speak Spanish, French or Hebrew that would be a huge plus !! Thanks in advance.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Oakland, CA

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Oakland. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a nanny job interview. Here is a list of some nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What do you think children like best about you?
  • What kind of activities will you do with children this age?
  • How do you handle problems that arise behaviorally and emotionally with kids this age?

Beyond answering questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
