Kathryn K. - Seeking Work in San Diego

Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have 20 years plus of child-care - plus nanny/nurse experience. I have worked the last five years exclusively for a local San Diego Nanny Agency; placement was mainly with brand-new infants and multiple-birth families, as well as very ill babies on heart/lung machines.g-tube, CVC etc. I was a nurse in S.D. for two years, from 2005-2007, and I am a retired professional interior designer who went back to medicine/child care after a very successful career in Interior Design in S.D. I have a year of pre-med at Yale New Haven Hospital in Conn., specializing in autistic children, but stopped this schooling because of a divorce when my only child was 8 years old. I went back to medicine when I became a nurse in 2004. I went into Nanny/Nurse again in 2007 because I really love and adore new babies: the teaching and nurturing of them is a real joy to me; it's what I really want to do as a career at this point in my life. I have many many references from local families and can fax a full resume and many letters/recommendation to your e-mail. This is a true profession to me, and I take it and the responsibilities very seriously. I am truly gifted and wonderful with children. I have a degree in child psychology and worked for 7 years as a visitation monitor for abused children for the San Diego Courts. I taught Sunday school for eight year olds for 7-8 years and I am l00% dependable, honest and trustworthy. I have had long-time jobs with 25 new infants from 3 days old on and I specialize in brand new babies - straight from the hospital. I always plan to stay with each one for a minimum of three years. I have worked with both indigo and crystal children and have many other qualifications for that specialty. I prefer to get a new baby at three months and stay for at least three years with them. I am extremely flexible with my time and energy/holidays/evenings/trips with family, etc. I work my personal life around my new families' lives. I prefer two full-time working parents in order to get the hours I need to make my own life work. I can do total household management but do not do heavy cleaning/housekeeper's job. I am a wonderful cook who has written two cook-books, but my newborn comes first. In the beginning - there is no time for cooking, light house-work, etc. because I stay l00% busy with the child, which is my main priority.

SEEKING A FULL-TIME OR 2 PART-TIME NANNY POSITIONS STARTING OCTOBER 10TH WITH AWESOME FAMILIES ! ! I am 24 years old, worked at a daycare on campus at the University my sophomore year in college. I volunteered as a Vacation Bible School summer camp counselor and had my own class of 10+ kindergarden and first grade children for two summers when I was in high school, I've been a full time nanny for the past four summers, a M-F before and after school nanny for the past three school years (all of which were Sittercity families), recently worked at a daycare three days a week, and have babysat pretty much every weekend night for the past four years! I care for children with severe food allergies (having to carry an epi pen at all times), Asthma, ADHD, as well as developmental and social issues. I do quite a bit of overnight babysitting while parents are either on business trips or week long vacations. I've travelled with families, done housesitting and petsitting for extended periods, and have babysat at parties and weddings. The last two parties I worked were a Valentine's Day dance with 17 two to six year olds, and the one after that I played the character Rapunzel from the movie Tangled at a five year old's party with 15 girls. I consider all of the kids that I babysit my friends and promise every family that I sit for reliability, honesty, a fun, positive, safe environment, and sincere care. I have had such a wonderful experience thus far an have become great friends with quite a few families though this website. I've worked for about 30 families through this website with every job responsibility you could possibly thing a nanny would have. I'm also registered with a nanny agency in San Diego that would charge a family $1200+ just to place me with them! I was a live-in summer nanny in La Costa this past summer (I moved from Chicago to SD) and cared for a four-year-old boy on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I have been this boy's babysitter since he's been two, was his summer nanny in Chicago, and accepted their offer to hang out with them in SD for Summer 2010! I was also a MWF summer nanny in La Jolla. I decided to stay in SD once my contract was up, and moved to La Jolla. The family that I moved to CA with is just moved back to Chicago at the end of May, so I'm in the market for a new nanny position! I had accumulated over twenty families that I worked for on occasion in Chicago, and would love to establish a reputation in CA as well! I own a safe, reliable car (04 Toyota RAV4) and am seeking a position with a fun family that has super-active kids that love to play outside and go on adventures! I'm INA certified, am registered for an American Red Cross Pediatric First Aid & CPR recertification course on November 14th, and am in the process of becoming Trustline certified. Impressive resume, including all previous and present childcare experience, provided at interview. Awesome references available upon request.

Hello to all the beautiful families searching for a wonderful nanny. Over the past 10yrs I have worked many caregiver/nanny positions involving teenagers, middle aged children and infants which includes everything from childbirth to being a nanny for kids in their early months and older. I am CPR certified, First Aid trained and conduct annual training courses for nannies to learn more at becoming the best that I can be at what I do. As far as my history I am a Portuguese language teacher and taught in a Brazilian university and other schools while living in Brazil. Currently I am here in San Diego studying international business at the SDUIS college. I also am currently employed full time since 2014 as a nanny/babysitter for a family with one beautiful 6-month-old girl and have been with her since she was 1 month old. In addition to being a teacher, my years of a nanny/caregiver experience I have gained knowledge in many aspects of a daily routine to keep your children safe and happy. My responsibilities in my nanny career and even currently for the beautiful girl I care for now include everything from preparing healthy meals, making sure the children enjoy their day by going on daily walks in the park, depending on the childs age placing them down for evening/bedtime nap routines, story time at the local libraries or at home, establish a positive relationship by creating stimulating games and activities to aid in their learning process while having fun at the same time, maintaining a healthy and safe environment and making sure that only permitted people come to visit. I understand that being a nanny is much more than being a body watching your child. I implement games and stimulating activities to help your childs brain to grow and become more intelligent as well as keeping them fully occupied throughout the day. If I sound like someone you would enjoy having as your nanny I would love to hear from you.

For the last 1 1/2 years, I've been a nanny to a wonderful 2-year-old. Unfortunately, she is going to preschool. Before that, I was a Preschool Teacher and caregiver for one year to 14 children ranging in ages 5 months to 8 years old.

I am also LiveScan fingerprinted with criminal background clearance. I am very easy to work with and I am confident I would be a great fit for your child. My recent job duties included caring for a child at least 3 days/week since she was 18 months old. I would take her to the park, pool, library, museum, beach, or any other fun adventure we came across. I read her books, made crafts, played with her toys, and engaged her in many activities. I assisted with potty training and prepared her healthy snacks and meals. My last job job duties included caring for and teaching 14 children ranging in ages between 5 months and 9 years old. I aid in implementing educational approaches throughout the daytime, evening, and weekend programs by creating a daily preschool curriculum. I worked with children to increase their process for memory, perception, attention, and imagination, taught students simple skills to assist them for entry into elementary school, led weekly lessons, taught children how to create crafts, organized activities including outings to parks and museums, provided child care, supervised during outside play time. Daily activities include art, crafts, circle time, reading, letter and number instruction, field trips, morning nature walks, preschool curriculum, group play, outside activities, and fine and gross motor activities. My duties also include potty training, transportation, light housecleaning, caring for four dogs, and preparing healthy meals and snacks for the children. Other duties also include managing enrollment, nutrition program, and paperwork.

I have worked as a babysitter for several families with children ranging from infants to teenagers for the past twelve years. I have worked as a nanny for three families. The first family I worked for as a full-time nanny was for a 4-year-old girl; I worked with her to get her ready for first grade and I took her to ballet and gymnastics. I also oversaw play dates and took her swimming. The second family I worked with as a full-time nanny was with a 18-month-old boy (at the time I started). In our time together we went on outings to the zoo, museums, and parks; we also worked on baby sign language and potty training. The third and most recent family was for a baby girl who was 6 weeks old when I started, I worked for this family for nearly two years (until the family decided that in their situation, it would be more financially responsible to hire live-in help). While working for this family I took responsibility for every aspect of the baby's care; I took her to all of her classes, fed, bathed, and put her down for naps and to sleep at night. I worked with her on different activities that served to help her develop mentally and physically, helping her to achieve each of her milestones; we also worked on baby sign language and her bilingual vocabulary. I was also in charge of transportation, tutoring, and swim instruction for the family's two teenagers. During the nearly two years with this family, I traveled domestically and internationally with them and, on many occasions, stayed at home with the baby while the parents traveled for extended periods of time.

We have an amazing nanny who has been caring for my son and another little girl of the same age since they were 4 months old. The other family has to leave our share and we are looking for someone to take the little girl's place. Betty, our nanny, speaks to them in spanish (my son can say more in spanish than english), gets them outside for >60% of the day, and takes them around San Diego to see all the parks, museums, zoo, Sea World (you name they've been there). We have been looking to enroll them in other classes (music, dance, swim, arts, etc) that she can also taken them to. We are open to all ages but a child around one year would be ideal.

We are located in North Park. Betty watches the kids from 7am-3pm Mon-Fri and we pay her taxes and employment fees so total is about $20/hour (or $10/hr split).

Looking to share my awesome nanny. She is amazing with my 9 month old girl. She speaks Russian and English fluently. She is older and therefore far more mature. This is Ina's full time job and she takes it very seriously. She loves taking my baby outside for long walks. I live 3 blocks from the beach so they go to the water every day. I have two very friendly dogs and a big back yard that can accommodate toys. I have Ina at my house from 9am until about 6pm Monday through Friday. I am looking to nanny share with a family with an older child, 2yrs and above.
