Find a nanny share in Berkeley, CA
The Moore Family
& Miriam Gonzales
Berkeley$22/hr  |  3 kids
We have three boys, ages 13, 10, and 5. The two older boys are pretty self sufficient, so the care is mostly for our 5 year old. We currently need school pick-up for our 5 year old, and after-school care to around 7pm. We would love to get into a share situation with our 5 year old, either at our house or the other family's place.

We are very easy going, but do like to limit screen time and have plenty of outdoor time for our 5 year old.
