Whitney G. - Seeking Work in Berkeley

I have worked as a nanny and babysitter for four years with children ranging from ages 4 to 13. During the summers, I have worked as a personal assistant and nanny, driving children to their various commitments and supervising them throughout the day, as well as helping out around the house. I am accustomed to preparing meals, running errands, doing laundry, cleaning, and organizing the house. I have also worked as a babysitter for various parents who need a week night to themselves. I am used to assisting children with homework and constructively working on tasks they need to complete while their parents are out on a date. I am creative, artistic, and imaginative, and I use these traits to entertain children and keep them inspired and involved.

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.
