Fun College-Student Nanny/Babysitter

Responds within a few days
I am a hardworking, responsible, caring student who loves spending time with children of any age. I am a 20-year-old college student who is looking for work during the summer break before I return to school on Saturday, 7/24. I love interacting with all ages of children and can also assist in housework if needed. I am fully vaccinated. I was a nanny for two families from January- December 2020. One family had three young girls, and the other family had two young boys. My previous jobs include crew member at Chipotle Mexican Grill, Assistant Humanities Teacher for a middle school summer program, lacrosse coach for young girls ages 6 to 10, and an intern at Abilities United where I worked in the preschool, teen, and adult programs. Resume available if needed.

Grace has been an amazing babysitter/nanny for my 2 high energy boys (ages 5 and 8)! We hired her during the beginning of the pandemic in March to nanny for the boys 5 days a week as our current nanny had to take a leave of absence. Grace was quickly able to manage the boys, from monitoring my first grader in his daily forced online learning, to engaging my preschooler with educational and creative activities. In addition to academic activities, Grace played with the boys outside and made sure they were able to burn off steam. They spent much time outside running around in our yard, going on nature walks, and riding bikes. Grace also takes the kids to explore local parks. Most important, she was able to accomplish all this with limited instruction from me. When she arrived every day, I was able to get back to work and felt that I could trust her with the boys completely. She did a great job handling a very complex situation and we are very grateful for her!

Young, Fun, Loving Part-Time Babysitter/Nanny

I've been a babysitter/nanny for a little over 3-4 years now. On my free time I enjoy, reading, taking walks with my dogs, and volunteering. I've been a volunteer at the Boys And Girls Club for 2 years now. I love volunteering, especially because it involves children. In the past, I've been able to work with different families with kids ranging ages from newborns up to teenagers. I've worked with families with many different backgrounds and needs and I believe every experience has made me a better babysitter/nanny. Some of my many responsibilities are: being in-charge of pick-ups and drop-offs, managing schedules, getting kids to start their homework, grocery shopping, scheduling play dates, taking kids to activities, and preparing afternoon snacks, these are just to name a few. Also in being a nanny, I like to make it fun for the kids. I like to be able to bond with them, and learn more about their likes and dislikes are. In that, I like to take kids to get ice cream or some kind of treat when their schedules permit also taking kids to the park or the library. In some occasions, I've been able to take the kids to the zoo, movies, or other places that are enjoyable for the kids. I would consider myself to be a very hardworking person, responsible, honest, and reliable person. I not only try to make it a fun environment for the children, but a safe one as well. I always want to make sure the family is comfortable and knows their kids will be taken care of at all times. I have amazing references from past families I've worked for that know first hand what it is like having me work for them, and who are willing to speak to you if needed. Please make sure to check out my reviews! Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

Hello! My name is Graciela but everyone calls me Grace. Since 2005, I started volunteering. At my son's school in his classroom, I helped with activities, and reading to the kids. I was also the typical soccer mom, did carpool for the kids in the team. I was the assistant coach for 7 years. Once my son graduated from that school. I still went back to volunteer in the after-school program called kids club, we had the kids cooking and doing crafts and puzzles. In 2011, I started working in a daycare in redwood city. The ages ranged from 1month to school age. The school age kids needed to be picked up from school. While at the daycare, I was able to get CPR certified. I was in charge of looking after the the children and feeding them as well as playing with them as well as doing crafts with them. While at the daycare, I was able to built great relationships. That I was asked to babysit for the families. In the evenings and weekends.

Grace was our nanny for a year taking care of our 2-year old son. This year was a complicated as our son was continuing recovery from a major illness and was a recent recipient of Cochlear implants. Grace jumped fully into all the challenges and did a marvelous job maintaining our son's complicated schedule of therapies. She also learned a lot about how to help with his recovery and was a key partner or ours. Grace thrives at continually conquering new challenges as a nanny and we'd happily hire her again. Once our son turned three, he started attending a preschool for deaf and hard of hearing children which ended our need for a nanny.
