Alexandra F. - Seeking Work in San Francisco

Hourly rate12.32 / hour

My first experience in childcare was when my little sister was born. Having two parents with busy schedules, I was left to care for her on my own from the age of 10. When she was 3, I moved to San Francisco to live with my mother but at that point, started babysitting for 3 children at the time an infant girl, and two boys 3 & 4. Over the course of 9 years, I fostered a relationship of trust and love with the children and their family. I now consider them to be a part of my family. Though they have since outgrown their need for me, I still I try to see the children at least once a summer for a play date. In October 2011, I was asked by an aquaintance to my family to care for her 7 month old (whom she had never left alone with a non-family member) and her collegues friend's child a little girl (age 7) who were in from out of town to help organize the Nike Women's Marathon. It had been about 2 years since I had done any formal child care but took on the task of caring for these children during the 5 days prior to the event almost every waking hour out of the St. Frances Drake (an unfamiliar environment and new experience for all). 'Field trips' around San Francisco and my nail painting skills earned me some definite brownie points with the 7 year old. I had such a positive experience during that time, I've decided to look for more babysitting work. I have since been certified in infant, child, and adult CPR & First Aid to increase my attractiveness to potential employers.

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Hi! Hola! Hello! My name is Elaine and I just moved to San Francisco. I worked as a full-time school psychologist in a school district in Phoenix, AZ, primarily with elementary aged children, but do have working experience with preschool and middle school students. In addition, I was also on the bilingual evaluation team and worked closely with Spanish speaking students and their families to assist them through the Special Education process and provide other community resources as needed. I have Masters and Certification in School Psychology and I am proficient in Spanish. I am the oldest of four-siblings and helped my mom out as a caregiver; I helped my mom with changing diapers, baths, helping them brush their teeth, change clothes, putting them to bed, taking them to the playground, light laundry and cooking, and overall caring for my siblings. When I babysat from 13- to 19-years-old, I took care of children as young as 1-year to up 13-years old. I have baby sat for families with pets as well. I really love animals, and I am looking to volunteer at a pet shelter in the area soon. I am exploring how to get CPR/First Aid/AED/Pet CPR certified as well.

I have 3 years of recent babysitting experience, caretaking my best friend's adorable son, Caiden. I have taken care of him since infancy, including feeding him, bathing him, changing him, helping him learn to use the toilet, and entertaining him:) I also have 7 years of child care experience from my teenage years.

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!
