Mercedes Bowie
Northridge, Los Angeles$35/hr  |  6 yrs experience
My name is Mercedes Bowie I have been a nanny for almost 15 years. As a full-time nanny, I have encountered a variety of children and family situations which has shaped me into a flexible and quick-thinking worker. While working with my nanny family, I watched two elementary-aged children and managed their daily schedules of school, playdates, appointments, and extracurricular activities. My first family left me with a glowing recommendation upon moving on.

Beyond basic childcare, I uphold high standards of academics and healthy living for the families I work for. When cooking, duties are asked of me, I always aim to serve balanced meals for the family. In addition, I sit down with the parents weekly to discuss the children’s growth, possible issues, and general expectations.

My experience and personal skills make me a reliable candidate who will effectively help run your household. If you would like to discuss the potential for a partnership together, feel free to contact me.

Hannah M.

Hannah made our lives SO easy. We could always count on her to go the extra mile. She took time to emotionally understand our children and take her time to work through anything they were having issues with- whether it be school, friends, so on. She is prompt and always prepared! - Laura

Kaetlyn M.

Kaetlyn was a pleasure to have around. My two kiddos (ages 8 and 10) loved her and she was exceptionally responsible and accommodating. - Miki

Norma O.

Norma has been a part of the family for two years exactly. We love her dearly. She has taken care of the kids as they were hers. I honestly can say I can leave my kids to her without any hesitation. She has traveled with us on business trips and many family vacations and always made sure kids are fed and clean. We will miss her tremendously. She would be a great addition to any family. - Vanessa
