Brentwood, CA Nannies

Emily C. - Seeking Work in Brentwood

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have been babysitting since I was 11 years old. Watching and caring for children is something that has always come naturally to me. I have many families whom I have continued to babysit for over the years. From July of 2008 til July of 2011 I helped nanny my twin nephews. They were 3 months old when I first started watching them. Taking care of the twins taught me more about childcare than anything else. I still watch them often, and I continue to learn from the experience. Because of this experience, I am extremely comfortable caring for infants and toddlers (even more than one at a time). I have a lot of experience with infants, as well as older children. I have also babysat for large families.
Hannah D. - Seeking Work in Brentwood

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I've been nannying/babysitting for over 6 years now and I still love it! I started as a mother's helper when I was 12, and then began babysitting on regular basis at 13. When I was 16, I lived in Africa for a month and worked with orphans. Their sweet smiles and joyous laughter made leaving them far tougher then the trip itself. At 17, I lived in North Carolina and worked as a nanny for three children, two of which are special needs. I lived with the family for almost three months, while the father of the children went through military training. I am now living in Brentwood and going to school at LMC. I'm also currently working at a office for a few hours a week. I plan to pursue a career in physical therapy, possibly working with children. I love the outdoors, and keep active. I'm willing to do light housework, laundry, and such. If you feel I could fit in with your family, please let me know! :) Have a great day!

I have worked in a preschool four years after High School. I began babysitting at a young age for three boys and continued caring for children into my twenties. I have worked for the school district as a lunch supervisor after having my own two children begin grade school. My two children are now 14 and 15, involved in sports and have consistently achieved academic honors maintaining GPA's of 3.5 or greater. I also worked for the Gymboree play program. I have plenty of experience in caring for and raising children. I have also cared for a friend over a summer with cerebral palsy. I have been blessed to work part time over the years in order to care for my own family. I am now available to accept full or part time work.

Rita O. - Seeking Work in Brentwood

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

In the past, I have spent most of my time in childcare as a babysitter. I also serve at Golden Hills Church and I used to lead Sunday School for the children's ministry there. I am very well acquainted with watching over 10+ seven year olds by myself. The children I have babysat have ranged from 5-14 and the reason I have stopped babysitting is due to them being too old for a sitter :)
