Hannah G. - Seeking Work in San Francisco

Hourly rate12.32 / hour

I have worked with all age children and love every age! I have worked on long term bases with two families (one for 7 years the other for 2 years) and have done childcare for 15+ additional families. The family that I was with for 7 years (2001-2008) had two daughters that I began caring for when they were 3yrs and 5yrs. I had a very flexible schedule with them because I was very much a member of their family. I would pick up the kids from school, take them to events, help with play dates, after school activities, date nights, and sometimes overnight care. Apart from the hours I worked, the family would always include me in family camping trips, and make sure I was present for all the big events, such as getting a new puppy. The second long term family I was with for two years (2009- present) had a son and daughter who I began caring for when they were 7yrs and 9yrs. I was responsible for picking up the children from school, helping them with homework and piano lessons, preparing dinners and arranging play-dates. I also worked with this family as a house-sitter when they were on vacation the last two summers. The additional families I have worked with were some part time and some full time jobs who had children ranging for infant to 14 years of age. A part from working for families, I also teach and have taught theatre and dance to children for 10 years. I run a summer camp for kids aged 3-10 years and love teaching. I love music, dance, creativity, outdoor activities, and keeping and healthy and upbeat lifestyle!

Our former nanny Amanda has taken loving care of first our son and then our younger daughter, both from the age of 2 months to about 2 ½ years old. Amanda is now looking for a new full-time position, and she is available immediately. She is extremely responsible, incredibly patient, very loving, and our children simply adore her. She is devoted to children, treats them like her own, and has become a part of our family. Amanda set up a regular daily routine for our kids, and actively engaged them in all sorts of activities: going to the park and museums, reading, playing, painting, drawing, singing, dancing. Our children learned their alphabets and acquired a love of reading from her, but also learned to converse in Spanish. To keep us informed of what happened during the day, Amanda helped us keep a daily record of when the kids ate, slept, and pooped. Amanda is very punctual, trustworthy, and never took a sick day during the five years she worked for us. She worked 50 hrs./wk. for us, but during her 15 years experience as a nanny, she has worked longer for others and taken care of more than one child at a time (including twins). Amanda’s own home is meticulous, and she always cleans and tidies up after all the kids’ activities. For single child care, she is happy to do chores that relate to the child care, such as laundry (our kids clothes were always carefully folded and beautifully organized), housekeeping, meal preparation for children, errands, and shopping. Although we did not routinely ask Amanda to do extra babysitting during weekday evenings or on weekends, she was almost always available and happy to do so whenever we needed her. We did not have a spare car to lend Amanda, and she didn’t need one because she could walk or take public transportation to many activities from our home, but she has a good driving record, and other employees have trusted her to drive their children around the Bay Area. Public transportation limits her to working within San Francisco. Her primary language is Spanish, but she speaks decent conversational English (all our communication with her was in English). Amanda is a US citizen, Trustline Registered, CPR certified, First Aid certified, TB tested negative. To contact Amanda and/or for reference letters, resume, questions, please email.
Kristina M. - Seeking Work in San Francisco

Hourly rate12.43 / hour

I am a passionate individual with a unique and diverse skill-set, enhanced by my Interdisciplinary Studies degree in American Sign Language, Early Childhood Education, and Maternal/Infant Health. As a childcare professional, I will be able to provide support to the family by serving as a loving, nurturing and trustworthy companion to the children. I can offer the family convenient, high quality care to meet each child's physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs. I am qualified to care for children of all ages, but specifically seek to care for a newborn or infant. For the newborn or infant child, I am well adept to provide developmentally appropriate care. Infants learn by experiencing the environment--by seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, feeling, and by physically moving around. I will help to meet these needs by spending ample time holding, playing, and talking with the infant, and by pointing out things to look at, touch, and hear. I speak to children in a warm, supportive manner, often utilizing my knowledge of American Sign Language to support language development, by signing objects and describing what children are doing and feeling. Additionally, children, especially the young infant learn a sense of trust through interaction with consistent, caring adults. I aim to be responsive to a child's needs and recognize their cues for sleepiness, hunger, and/or affection. I am experienced in diapering, washing, dressing, and feeding a newborn or infant, and can support the breastfeeding or formula feeding parent. I abide by proper heating methods and storage times to eliminate risks of illness or injury. I am also sensitive to the separation anxiety dealt with by parents and children alike, and will offer a warm, welcoming, and pleasant atmosphere to help ease the transition. Communication with the parent(s) is an essential part of my care, in order to ensure a high level of comfort and satisfaction.

Irina  Llorenes  - Nanny Share Member

Number of children1 kid

We are looking for a family to join our sharecare. Our daughter is 20 months old.

Our amazing nanny - Irina is an absolute gem. She has worked as a nanny for several other families and before joining us worked in a sharecare setting with two boys for 3 years until they were ready for preschool. I honestly interviewed a dozen people when we were looking to set up our original arrangement and she was so clearly of a different caliber. She is full of energy, incredibly warm, very focused on the children's development, and reliable. She ensures that there is ample stimulation and takes the girls to a local activity (music class / library) every morning and spends lots of time with them in the park. She also cooks healthy meals, reads lots of books (never turns the TV on), and keeps the area tidy. She speaks Spanish to the girls but is also completely fluent in english (she is from Mexico but here legally for over 10 years). Most importantly, Irina genuinely loves the girls and gives them an incredibly nurturing environment.

Our family:

Our daughter is 20 months old and a very happy toddler. We are both working professionals and moved to SF about two years ago from NYC.

The details, location, and current set up:

Our sharecare family's last day is Sept 7th, so we'd love to have the other family start around then (I'm sure we can find flexibility in the dates for the right fit). We live in Pacific Heights and currently host the sharecare exclusively in our home (because the other mother worked from home and preferred a little more quiet). Irina currently works with us Mon-Thurs 7am-6pm and Fri 7am-5pm. We are hoping to find a family that is interested in overlapping for at least 40hrs a week (ideally more). Her rates are $30/hr for both children (i.e., each family pays $15/hr) and $22.50 for one child (if you need early/late coverage or for babysitting).

How to get in touch if you are interested:

With nanny since date2 years with nanny

We are two working parents who are so in love with our little Beckett! When we found Mylla, after not being able to get Beckett into a daycare - it was like a sigh of relief. She is incredible! She is also bi lingual - Portuguese is her first language. Mylla is open to speaking to your child in English/Portuguese or both (what she does with Beckett) and also works sign language into Becketts mealtimes. Mylla taught young children language in Brazil before becoming an Au Par. Mylla plays, reads, they do sing a long and practice all kinds of ever changing developmental activities throughout the day. Beckett naps in his nursery and we would have a very comfortable brand new pack n play available for another child to nap in our loft(He has only used it twice). You would be welcome to store your own toys, feeding supples, books, etc here full time so that it would minimize having to bring things back and forth. We also have a highchair and floor chair with tray for feeding two at a time. If you work close by Mylla is completely open to parents popping in and out to say hi (we do that sometimes too:) We are very excited about finding a family who is looking for the same things we have found, while helping minimize the cost of childcare in the city. We look forward to meeting you and looking for a mutually great fit for both our families!
