Hello,
My name is Shanley Wilson, I am a CSUN and Calabasas High School graduate. I have been a nanny in the Westlake Village and Calabasas area for 6 years. I have been a babysitter in the Hidden Hills and Calabasas area for 8 years. I began babysitting and nannying after volunteering at Round Meadow Elementary in my mother’s classroom. I believe what makes me a great nanny is the bond that I create with the child/children and family. I believe in building a relationship of trust, honesty, and loyalty with the family I work with. I am great with time management and believe in having fun but also getting work done when needed. I know it is difficult to leave your children in the care of someone else besides yourself so I try to do my best to make you feel comfortable and secure. The last two families I have worked for were in the entertainment industry so I know how to be flexible with my schedule. The last family I worked for moved out of state and called me several months later asking me to move across the country to be their live in nanny for 7 months while the mother was recovering for surgery. I didn’t hesitate and was packed up ready to help. My time here in Nashville has been served well and now it’s time to go back home to California. I love working with children and I grew up with an awesome mother as a mentor since she works as an elementary school teacher. I have outstanding references as well.

I started babysitting with a family of three boys, and I stayed with them for 8 years before moving. I also was an elementary tutor all through middle school and high school. I have volunteered at my church in the nursery, story time, VBS and Sunday services for about 8 years before moving as well. I became a nanny for a family with two boys, ages 7 and 4 (now), and had been with them for the past four and a half years. I have worked with them in 12 hour days, 5 days a week, and occasional weekends, so I am always willing to be with the children for long hours. I've also stayed the night for extended periods of time while the parents were away. The boys are school-age now, and had attended a Montessori school, and after the mother had started working part-time, I decided to work at their school as a teacher's assistant to remain close to the boys and to still be able to work with them before and after school. I was a teacher's assistant in Children's House 2 for the entire school year working with a classroom filled with 33 students ages 3-6. Teaching has always been my passion, however I ended my teacher's assistant job in order to stay with the boys since the school schedule was conflicting with the mother's work schedule and they were not offering elementary for the oldest child. I was also a nanny for a 2 year old and 3 month old (now) for the past year, and am currently working as a nanny for two girls, ages 6 and 7 for the summer.

I worked for 5+ years in a residential treatment facility for kids ages 6-14 with mental illnesses and behavioral issues. This job included overseeing all aspects of the childrens daily lives, getting them up and off to school, administering medication, planning activities and outings, help with homework, transportation to appointments and activities, providing emotional support, and dealing with behavioral issues. I also have experience assisting in a school setting, supervising other staff, general house upkeep, and various errands. Previous to this I babysat for several years. I love getting outside with kids and being active, as well as encouraging their individuality and creativity. I believe in teaching kids to be safe, responsible, and respectful from an early age. I am big on forming the type of relationship where the kids that I work with can trust that I am going to follow through with the things that I say, whether it be an incentive or consequence, and that I expect the same from them. Also, I have strong feelings about the types of consequences I am willing to give. It is your choice if you wish to use "spanking" or something similar with your children, but I do not believe that this would be my place to do so as well. Further, I do not believe in giving consequences out of anger, and do not yell or raise my voice to get my point across. This is not to say that I cannot be assertive when needed, or that I come across as a pushover,
