Nanny Shares in San Francisco, CA

The McNally Family
& Ashling Pierce
San Francisco$32/hr  |  1 kid
Long-Time Nanny Share looking for a family to join our share care. We've worked with the same nanny with our first child for the last three years. She heads to preschool and we're expecting our second in mid October.

Logistics:
- Timing: November 2020, flexible on dates if needed
- Currently host in downtown Glen Park (corner of Diamond / Chenery)
- Open to sharing hosting if that's important

Details:
We are looking for a new family to join our share care nanny and our second child starting in November. If starting 2-4 weeks earlier or later is important, we are open to that.

We've been with Ashling since our first child was born 3.5 years ago. We interviewed countless people before deciding Ashling would provide a loving, supportive and experiential environment and we couldnt feel more happy, confident and grateful that we made the decision!

Ashling turns every day into an adventure with daily visits to Glen Park Canyon (and other parks!), Glen Park Library and explorations around the neighborhood. Otherwise, it could be a day trip to the zoo, the local museums and more. Or painting and making Playdoh, drawing with chalk on the sidewalk and reading, reading reading! Olive is potty trained thanks to Ashling, but it's not a requirement for our share care.

Most importantly, Ashling deeply cares for Olive and their relationship is truly beautiful.

About Us - Liz and Tyler have worked in the bay area since 2011 and have lived in Glen Park since 2016. We have strongly held, but not rigid values around creating a caring, meaningful high quality learning environment for our children - healthy, natural foods as much as possible, but an ice cream sandwich at the beach as a special surprise is nice too. Little to no screen time during the week, but we own TVs and sometimes Elmo is an OK distraction.

Sabrin N.

She was amazing and exactly what we needed with our family. She very passionate with what she does and it’s her major. She makes sure baby’s safety is first and always stayed in good communication with us. We would have totally kept her but we moved. She’s definitely the one your looking for - Julie

Mallory A.

She was always on time with a great attitude. She did not just supervise the children, she played and interacted with them, too. Flexible and honest, we were consistently impressed with Mallory. We even took her on a trip with us to provide trusted childcare and she was reasonable, patient, and reliable. Very highly recommend. Sad she moved. - Lauren

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in San Francisco, CA

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

San Francisco Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in San Francisco? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in San Francisco?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in CA? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
