Professional Caregiver, Babysitter, Nanny

Hello families! My name is Cassandra and I am looking for a family whom I can help with my services, and make sure each day goes as smoothly as possible. To give a little background, I have been a babysitter/nanny for a little over 10 years. I am also finishing up my studies in Early Childhood Education; working with children has won my heart. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to hear more about my experience, and possibly see if I could be a fit for your needs. Thanks and hope to hear soon!

I can not recommend Cassandra enough. She is one of the best nannies we have hired. She is very professional and she communicates well. She is prompt to reply to questions and address any concerns or questions that may arise. Cassandra worked for us for 8 months and after the first week, it felt like she had always been with our family as she was able to adapt to our daily routine flawlessly. We have a unique situation as we have twins, and one of our sons has special needs and he is non-verbal. Her level of care with our son with special needs was exceptional and he would always give her a big huge smile when he saw her!! She was also terrific with our other son and was able to support him with his school work and getting him to and from his sports activities. Our boys adore her!! During the beginning of the pandemic - Cassandra was even able to shift the routine to help out with in-home-schooling and keeping the boys active and engaged - which was a huge help!!

Hello! I'm a Junior at the University of Redlands studying to become a Behavioral Therapist for children with Autism. I'm a Psych major, minoring in Early Childhood Education. I have been babysitting for several years and am an RBT with experience in clinical, school, and home settings. I believe in hands on, exciting interaction and hope to find a family who's willing to accept my help with their little one! I'm honest, reliable and very passionate. I can help your family with OT, BT, babysitting, meal prep, cleaning, and online learning/homework. I am fully vaccinated, recently CPR certified (for the 3rd time) and background checked. My schedule listed is based around internship schedule, which is full time this summer, therefore I will only be accepting part time/one time jobs. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Camille has been a lifesaver for our family. She has been with us for 5 months, 3 times per week. Camille completes our sons OT and PT regimens with him, in our home. As our sons needs changed, so did Camille's regimen with him. She is highly intuitive with him and takes initiative to update his program. Our child's therapists are in awe of his growth since Camille started. Camille is respectful of our child's feelings while clearly communicating expectations to him. Quite honestly, as parents we learned a lot about working with special need children from Camille. She is also extremely organized and her binder has helped me communicate with his specialists and IEP coordinators. 5 stars aren't enough and we have heavy hearts looking for her replacement as she moves out of state.

Hi! I'm Tiff. Oakland native, mother to a 7-year-old budding philanthropist, & your typical atypical product of society, trying to find my peace in this world. Although becoming a SAHM at a young age, most of my professional career revolved around children and community. In the past, I have been fortunate to have worked in a few Oakland schools, in guiding our children as they navigate their studies and the world around them. I maintain a strong philosophy of self worth, agency, and cultivating an environment of love and open space to remain curious & growing, while always striving to keep basic needs met. I believe children who spend time outside grow up to be happier adults. I believe children who are treated with respect grow up with acceptance. On the surface, I am a fun, gentle person with lots of great energy & positive vibes. I enjoy music, nature, and art. Not afraid to be silly, fiercely caring, and will likely fall in love with your kids as if they were my own.

Tiffany watched our 5 month old baby for a few weeks during a temporary position and we love her! She is an exceptionally professional caregiver and a great communicator. She's punctual, responsive on phone and texting, fun, a really experienced educator, and very attentive and aware of our baby's mood and needs. She was an angel to him. She followed all our requests and preferences to a T. I have interviewed and done trial days with many caregivers, and she really stands out. Anyone who gets to work with Tiffany is lucky!

Spanish Speaking Nanny

Hello! I'm Eva and I have 13 years of experience as a nanny. I am a very responsible, respectful and punctual person. Very active, clean, organized, and a NON smoker. First Aid/CPR Pediatric certified with a clean background and driving record. I'm honest and strive to provide safe, fun, loving and educational nannying. I specialize in caring for newborns-3 years old. I work with first time parents in guiding them into their new role as parents. I am proactive in helping your baby/child master key developmental tasks like potty training, walking, crawling and fine motor skills. Your child/children will engage in activities such as learning how to speak Spanish, singing, coloring, reading books, and going to the park. I am open to discussing any additional tasks or activities of interest. Above all, I enjoy taking care of children and believe in providing quality care and a safe environment for them. I am happy to provide references.

Eva has provided full-time care for our daughter for the greater part of the last three years, since our daughter was three months old, and I could not recommend someone more to care for your child or children. Eva has decades of childcare experience, and is truly a third parent to our daughter. She is loving, resourceful, reliable, and raises our daughter to be a good, well-rounded little person (who is also completely fluent in Spanish!). Eva has supported us through all the baby milestones, through family emergencies, through COVID, and everything else. We're unfortunately moving out of the area, otherwise Eva would also be providing care for our second child, due shortly. She keeps our place clean (despite this not being a formal part of her role), cooks me chicken soup when she feels I'm not getting enough protein :), and my daughter still shrieks with delight when Eva comes through the door in the morning.
