Gayatri S. - Seeking Work in Berkeley

Hello I am a professional holistic nanny with over 13 years experience caring for kids ranging in ages 1 month to 12 years old. I have been caring for infants, toddlers and preschoolers mostly for the past 5 years. I have also assisted in the management of activities for pre-teens and teens. I truly enjoy spending quality time with little ones walking around, enjoying the sunshine at parks, out and about on adventures around town. I have quite a running list in my head of outdoor activities as well as a myriad of engaging rainy day activities. I offer a multicultural influence, as I have a background in Balinese Dance as well as Classical Indian Dance. I have learned many music together with songs over the years, and enjoy singing and dancing with kids. Educated in Nutritional Sciences at UC, Berkeley. I emphasize good nutritious habits early on, sparking the young one's interest in healthy foods by modeling. I am well versed in the eating, sleeping, changing routine of infants. I consider my parenting/discipline style to be holistic, emphasizing communication, compassion, and mindfulness. Currently, I am looking for a weekday 25-30 hours long-term commitment including a regular date night. I'm generally available during the week 8 am-7 pm, however on Monday evenings, I would need to leave by 5:00 p.m.

Full-time hours

At the age of 12 I began babysitting for families with younger children at my elementary school. I've held steady babysitting jobs for as long as two years. I've cared for infants (from 2 months and up) as well as toddlers and older children (up to age 9). My job descriptions varied, whether I was there to watch the children while the mother/father was at home or if I was alone with the children and required to make them meals, as well as wash and clothe them and but them to bed. I've changed diapers and kissed booboos, and everything in between.

< 1 yr of experience

Hi there! My name is Hannah. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Public Health back in December 2014. I've been working in San Francisco doing healthcare consulting since then. I am headed to law school this fall (2018), but I would like to babysit/nanny until then.

I started babysitting back when I was thirteen after I obtained SafeSitter training. I babysat mostly through high school, but a little bit in college as well.

I absolutely love children, especially toddler age. I have babysat for a large range of ages, 2 to 13, and I have worked with children with special capabilities.

P.S. I received CPR training in 2014, but if you wish for me to retake the course, please let me know.

Invalid date with nanny

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.
