Part-time Nanny, Ages of Children upon Hire: 12 months and 4.5 years old Provided part childcare to the 12-month-old boy born with an unidentified chromosome, having a developmental delay. Attended feeding therapy, floor time therapy, jump-start and speech therapy with the parents. Duties also included bath times, bed time prep, meal time prep, cleaning, taking the kids to the park, structured art time, play time and helping parents cope and adjust to the needs of their child. We met occasionally to discuss my ideas for intervention for both their 12 month old son and their 4.5 year old daughter; some of these interventions included suggesting emotional mindfulness training which includes teaching parents to allow their children to feel the emotions they are feeling, placing a name (language) to these emotions and helping children develop adaptive coping skills, I also helped them to monitor their reactions to the older child which included parents’ being aware of when they became upset and overwhelmed by their daughter’s behavior and instead of reacting right away, they would take a second to breathe and deal with their own emotions, and lastly I discussed implementing a behavioral momentum sticker chart, taking data on intrusive outbursts and professional expressive therapy. Experience also includes: Behavioral Therapist Provide one-to-one in home and school based therapy sessions to children with Autism, aged 1-10. Practice applied behavioral analysis teaching methods such as: Discrete Trial Teaching, Errorless Learning, Applied Verbal Behavior, Pivotal Response Training, Natural Environment Training and Incidental Teaching, to create meaningful behavioral, social and academic outcomes. Collect and record skill acquisition and behavioral data while communicating effectively with the clinical team regarding clients’ most intrusive behaviors. Attend weekly meetings to evaluate client progress and program updates. Also: Senior Counselor Camp It Up is a camp that provides an open, welcoming and loving summer experience for gay, lesbian and transgendered families and friends. I planned and directed recreational programs for thirteen campers, aged 7-9 years old. Along with another senior counselor, a junior counselor and a counselor in training, I formulated a schedule for the two weeks and ensured that our plans were appropriately timed, taking into account how long we will stay at each activity, and how long it would take us to get from one activity to the next. I also made sure to always have a back up plan or activity in mind in the event that our scheduled activity did not work out. Also, as a team we collaborated to make sure that we were selecting age appropriate activities and that these activities were fun and enjoyable for our kids group. At the end of camp we asked each camper to evaluate the counselors in an open and honest manner. Also: School Based Behavioral Therapist Implemented principles of applied behavioral analysis in one-to-one school based sessions to students with Autism, aged 3-10: formulated and employed behavioral plans, collected and recorded data, attended monthly clinics to evaluate student progress, employed various teaching strategies to effectively teach specific skills or modify behavioral excesses, including Reinforcement Procedures, Discrete Trial Teaching, Task Analyses, Picture Activity Schedules (PAS), Incidental Teaching and Behavioral Shaping; Designed program materials, data sheets and stimuli. Also: Camp Counselor and First Responder Planned and directed recreational programs for fifteen campers, aged 4-70 with multiple developmental disabilities including Pica, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Psychosis, Epilepsy and Schizophrenia, at a summer camp with no electricity and running water: administered medications, provided pre-hospital care for medical emergencies, educated counselors of campers’ conditions’, identified symptoms and documented incident reports. Assembled campfires to cook meals and provided physical care to assist in maintenance of campers’ daily activities. And much more direct childcare experience.

Most recently I worked with twins (a boy and a girl) staying with them from the age of 7 to 9. For awhile I was working to take care of both of them, and then towards the end was primarily working with the girl, in an attempt to establish some independence. Before that I worked with a three year old for a year, before she entered pre-school. This was a situation where her mother worked at home, and I would come to their home for the morning then normally to the park or museum during the day. Before that I worked with a family as a family assistant, taking care of grocery shopping, food prep, and caring for two children, a boy of the age of 5 and his sister who was 12. I have also worked to try and help socialize young adults and provide vocational skills, both at home and in a more classroom setting. From the ages of 12 to 21. There have been gaps in all these experiences for I also work in the arts, and have worked as an art teacher here and there.

At the end of August our nannyshare buddies of a year are heading off to daycare and we are looking for another family to join us for four days a week of childcare.

We feel very lucky that our 14th month old has had such amazing care since he was 5 months old. His caregiver has decades of childcare experience and is incredibly loving and playful - playing them music, reading, going on walks, etc. Our son is so excited to see her each morning. She is also very communicative with parents and actively shares observations about child development, along with being first aid and CPR certified. We’ve learned a ton about parenting from her.

In our ideal world we would find childcare for about 40 hours a week - 7am to 5pm on Monday through Thursday with a child of similar age to ours. We live in East Oakland just south of Mills and would ideally love to find a family not too far away, but can be flexible. Rate is 12.50/hr each family.

We are so lucky to have an amazing nanny. She has been with us for the past 9 months and we have been in a nanny share with another family. My son is 18 months and we'd love to find another family with a child around that age. Unfortunately, they no longer require her care, so we are looking for another family to join our share! Our nanny keeps the kids really active and speaks Spanish. She always has a positive attitude, encourages our son to continue his development, and is always on time. I can't imagine our son with anyone else! We have her from 7:45am to 6pm. We can be flexible and creative with coming up with an arrangement with the right family.
