Suzanne H. - Seeking Work in San Francisco

Hourly rate23.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours
Years of childcare experience6 yrs of experience

My name is Suzanne and I have cared for children in various capacities for over 15 years here and on the East Coast. I have also babysat and nannied in San Francisco for the past four years. I started as a babysitter for my younger sister and neighbors, then progressed to teaching tot Creative Movement / summer camps to teaching Ballet and dance to ages 2 - adult, teaching and directing theatre with children ages 5 - 16, teaching art and free play / for gym to toddlers, and finally to nannying.

I love nannying because I get the opportunity to help foster wonder and learning, and share in kids’ joys and discoveries, as well as learn from them as much as they learn from me! Kids I babysit for and I have enjoyed: singing; dancing; building; doing arts and crafts; going to the park, playgrounds, beach, library, museums, and tot classes; lots of reading, etc. Exploring the city; new cultural experiences and art forms; science and nature exploration; reading and making up stories together; creating art; and safely pushing boundaries are all big favorites of mine!

I have been required to do light housekeeping for former families, and would be happy to do the same for yours while the child is napping if desired. I love dogs and am happy to work for a family with a pooch, but am allergic to cats. I have experience nannying for kids between the ages of 4 months old and 13 years old, as well as teaching children as old as 16. I speak English and Spanish.

I grow attached to my families and am still in touch with former families. It’s so exciting to see how everyone has grown and progressed! I can’t wait to meet you and your little one(s) today!

Irina  Llorenes  - Nanny Share Member

Hourly rate30.00 / hour

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).

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!
