Hello, my name is Jay and I am a live-in nanny. Currently, I am located in Cherry Valley, California, but looking to relocate to the Palm Springs area. I have over 8 years of experience as a nanny. I have taken care of children from ages 0-12 years old. I am very loyal, trustworthy, and have a strong work ethic. People have described me as a loving person and a “people person.” I am able to perform any and all expected duties of a typical nanny. However, I do not drive, but I am very comfortable utilizing public transportation, including Uber, to complete shopping or run any necessary errands. My duties as a nanny have included waking, dressing, and supervising meals and play times of the children. Additionally, I transport the children to their various activities, assist with school work, and ensure they are put to bed appropriately. I also have experience with maintaining the overall household, which has included performing light chores (i. e. washing dishes, laundry) and preparing meals. I am a non-smoker and do not have any alcohol or drug history. I truly enjoy being a nanny and cannot wait to start doing it again. If you have any interest, please message me and I will respond quickly. My resume and references are available upon request.
