(Cleaning, making meals, changing diapers, preparing them for bed, taking them out to the Park, grocery shopping, etc. I'm a very hard working person and I'm definitely always on TIME!

I am friendly, positive, responsible, and fun. A little bit about myself.. I love traveling especially if it has to do with camping or the outdoors. I have some college education, but I strive to get my bachelors. I have many little cousins and a sibling who I watch and take care of. I am available pretty much everyday except Sunday mornings!

I was in a program in high school for a preschool where we taught the kids. Us students planned activities for the kids to do, like math, science, and art. We planned snack time for them too. The second year I was the teachers assistant. I worked at a daycare for a few months while the owner was on vacation. Right now I am a live in nanny for a single mom with three kids, ages 5, 8, and 10. I am looking for a new live in nanny job because of the moms financial problems.

Hi, thanks for stopping by! I started nannying a few years back and loved every minute of it so I decided to continue full-time. I grew up in the east bay so I'm very familiar with all the fun things the bay area has to offer; whether its finding a really cool park, fun activity places, or kid friendly events. Staying active outside and/or being indoors doing arts and crafts is always my goal. Also, I love engaging kids in educational activities to help them grow and think critically. Patience and care has become a valuable asset of mine as I've watched kids in all age groups. Aside from watching kids, I've also help families with their daily household needs (i. e. errands, chores, organizing, etc.) so I'm very open and flexible to helping beyond just the kids! I'm happy to provide references upon request. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
Happy hunting! Dana.

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I was a full time nanny with a wonderful family of 3 children ranging in ages 8 to 13. Although I am no longer a full time nanny with the family I still continue my relationship with them at least a few times per month. I have been with this family for 8 years now. Before joining this wonderful family who I consider family I also watched for another family who I continue to be close with. I started watching their daughter when she was a baby. She is now 13 years old. Before both families I have had other nanny positions and babysitting jobs.
