Tampa, FL Nannies

Gaillyn P. - Seeking Work in Tampa

Hourly rate8.79 / hour

I have been a nanny/babysitter for 5 years. The first family I nannied for had 2 children. A boy, 6 years old and a girl, 9 years old. I picked the children up from school everyday. As soon as we arrived home I gave the children their snack. After that we enjoyed playing outside or doing games or activities inside. Then I helped them with their homework. I also started dinner before the parents arrived home from work. After that family I nannied for a 2 year old girl while her mother was at work. The little girl is Korean and her first language is Korean. I learned a lot of her words to make communication easier. She was so sweet and patient with me that language was not a barrier. Everyday activities included lunch, playtime, naps and diaper changes. With my most recent family I was a nanny for 2 children. A boy, age 3 and a girl, 6 months. I had the pleasure of watching the girl learn to walk. She and her brother are very active. We kept busy doing indoor and outdoor activities. Everyday activities included meal time, diapers, nap time and bed time.
Tiffany C. - Seeking Work in Tampa

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

I started working as a sitter when I was 16. After I graduated high school I began taking full time nanny positions in Tampa. The family I am with now has three children ages 2-8 and I have been with them for the past three years. Unfortunately, they are relocating for work and I must find a new family. I have experience caring for infants all the way up to teens. My mother owned a cleaning business so I can also take on housekeeping tasks if necessary. I have an AA degree in general studies and I am currently finishing up my BA in Psychology (so I am a great tutor as well!). Ultimately I plan on becoming a Mental Health Councilor specializing in children's and developmental therapies. I studied ASL so I would be happy to work with any signing families, but it has been several years so I would need to brush up on the vocabulary.
Beverly G. - Seeking Work in Tampa

Hourly rate8.54 / hour

Fun-loving, responsible and health conscious. I want to make Mom and Dad’s lives easier by keeping their children happy, entertained and safe! I raised two happy, healthy children who are now successful young adults. I then became a nanny for infants and found that I absolutely LOVE every minute of it. I just spent over a year with a wonderful family whose needs have changed so I am now seeking a full-or part-time position in a similar positive home environment where I can nurture a child while helping to meet appropriate developmental milestones through songs, books, puppetry and fun exercises. My expertise includes creating a predictable nap/feed/play schedule to help babies sleep through the night, preparing fresh baby foods (like I did with my kids) and helping mom and dad with occasional home-cooked, healthy meals. I have had extensive volunteer involvement including Girl Scouts, Sunday School classes, summer camps, Lowry Park Zoo, Sweetwater Organic Farm, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation and the public school system. I have a lot of love, patience and kindness to share. I also enjoy capturing sweet moments with my professional camera. Other hobbies include cycling, hiking, gardening and bird watching. I love to take babies for walks, swims and park visits. I would be happy to take them in my car to library story-time, music, dance classes or even run errands for you.

I have cared for little girls and boys. one with behavioral issues and some not. some with special needs and some not.But by listening ive learned so much from kids. there has never been a kid I have not loved that Ive cared for. We have fun and do many activities. I do not believe in being a lazy nanny.The kids I have watched have been respectful and well behaved mostly because I do enforce the rules and without being too strict or ever mean. They like when we do crafts and I help them with their homework. They like playing outside. If the parents were ok with it sometimes I would take the kids to the beach. We always have clean safe fun. and sometimes I clean the house too.
Sheyene G. - Seeking Work in Tampa

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

In the past I have babysat overnight, for weekends at a time. I am the oldest grandchild and sibling so naturally I have grown up babysitting cousins and siblings. I have watched as many as 7 of my younger cousins at a time; we have recently had an addition to the family, a baby girl from my aunt. I enjoy going over to my aunts house and spending time with my four month old cousin, so I love infants as well. I have entertained my family friends' twin girls when they have came over in the past, and after meeting them for only two hours they want to stay, something about children amazes me.
