Hello! Im Brooke, a 24 year old student and mother. I am finishing up my B.S. in Psychology through Penn State's World Campus. I have really enjoyed being a nanny these past 7 years and can't wait to help more children excel during their early development. I have a 3 year old daughter who attends pre-school full time. She has taught me more then I could have imagined about child care and what parents are really looking for in a child care provider. I love taking children to local parks, libraries, Discovery Museum, and Happy Hollow. The great part about the Bay Area are all of the amazing play grounds and parks in each city. Also, there are so many free children activities around the various Holidays that I love to take the children I nanny to. I provide a fun fill day, with lots of hands on learning for children age 2 months to 3 years old.
Before having my daughter I used to teach swim lessons and violin lessons. I love being out doors, going for walks, playing in the pool, or inside singing songs and have mini dance parties to my favorite Disney and Baby Einstein songs.

Hello! My name is Erica, I'm a 21-year-old college student and I am currently looking for a full time nanny position. I have been babysitting for 5 years now. I have worked with kids from the ages of 4 months to 13 years old. I take my job seriously, but I also do take time to make it fun for the kids when I'm there. Based on my previous experience with kids I have a better understanding of what children look for to feel comfortable with someone other than their parents. Very often it is matter of giving a child a lot of attention and being very engaged. I am an active person and I enjoy being outdoors, playing games, and reading books with the little ones. My schedule is very flexible, so feel free to message me. Hope to hear from you soon kind regards, Erica.

The mind of a child is the most wonderful place, we could all learn a thing or two. The unbridled imagination that flows through children is astounding! I love to foster the curiosity and creativity by doing a lot of reading, fun science experiments and art projects.

I was homeschooled as a kid so I like to take from my favorite childhood school activities and trips for inspiration!

I have not nannied in a few years but I recently moved here with my husband and am looking for employment.

I have been babysitting kids ever since I was about 11 years old. I started off with just my nephew and my little sister, and I ended up babysitting almost all of my 20 little cousins at some point in time. I have provided care for kids from the ages 0 months - 10 years. I love to create activities for kids' entertainment. Taking care of kids has never bored me, as I see so much potential in all aspects that a child shows interest in.

3 months with nanny

I am looking for 1 or 2 families who want to share my son’s nanny. I live in Cambrian Park, South San Jose, CA.

I have a six and half month-old son who is at the moment cared for by our amazing full time nanny. We are very happy with her, that's why we wanted to share her care with other kids too as well as and share the cost.

More about our nanny: She was a preschool teacher before starting employment with us with excellent references. She has been with us for the past 3 months and from our experience she is very competent in all-things-babies. Starting from making baby food, to playing with him, participating in development activities, encouraging him to crawl, doing baby's laundry etc, she takes care of all these and more.

I can share my experience in more details, and her curriculum she follows with my son if you're interested. Looking forward to hearing from some wonderful families :)
