Hi there!
Youssef here!

I am a Jazz guitar and piano player who lives in berkeley. I graduated in economics and management from a french prestigious university "Universit Paris Dauphine" and decided to switch to music because that is what I love to do and I believe that what you love is what you will be successful at.
So this is why I came to berkeley, for jazz studies in California Jazz Conservatory.
I speak arabic french and english very fluently and can teach your child languages and music and entertain them! I've been dealing with kids for almost 2 years now. I love it! I teach guitar to kids in music schools and I babysit an 11 years old boy serving as a "big brother" to him and influencing him for the best : culturally, musically , and behaviour. I am ready to do the same for your kids, feel free to reach out anytime!

Miriam Gonzales - Nanny Share Member

with Miriam G.
Hourly rate22.00 / hour
Number of children3 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.

What are some common responsibilities for nannies in Berkeley, CA?

As a parent, it’s natural for you to ask your nanny for a little extra help around the house. However, the boundaries for a nannies duties vary from person to person. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met. This includes things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active, that they have a healthy diet and a sanitary home. When tasks go beyond child care, for example scrubbing kitchen counters, folding laundry, gathering groceries, or teaching a language, you will likely need to provide additional compensation.

To start, it’s important you set expectations and are aligned on compensation from day one. This includes outlining vacation days, a protocol for sick days, and everything else you would want your own employer to cover. From here, spend time getting to know them. Take your nanny out one of Berkeley’s great restaurants, learn about their childhood, and discuss your parenting philosophy. Finally, be sure to resolve conflicts as they arise. Open communication is crucial to ensuring a healthy long-term relationship.
