Maritsela is an amazing babysitter. She told care of my baby grandson for many hours. She was patient with him, talked to him, entertained him, and all the other usual things. She has a natural talent with babies. He was very content. I would trust Maritsela to do the very best for any child she takes care of. If you have questions or would like a reference send me an email or a text message. Just write in the subject line or at the beginning of the text-this is about Maritsela. Best wishes to all, stay safe, Ana

Full-Time Nanny Available

I am a mother of three living in Alameda, originally from Nepal. All my children are grown up. I have always been serious in caring for children and have never overlooked their needs. I am completely free and staying at home and wish to look after other children whose parents are busy. I have taken all the immunizations required including TDaP (Whooping cough), flu shots, measles, mumps, rubella and have cleared the Tuberculosis test.

We were lucky enough to have Manjula join our family as a full-time nanny from January 2020 through May 2020, while our son aged from 3 to 8 months. She is an incredible nanny and we would absolutely keep her if it wasn't for an unexpected move. Manjula is the most professional, loving, caring, capable, reliable, and punctual nanny you will meet. She always arrived at our home early and with a smile on her face. It's clear that caring for your child is her top priority! Each day as she walked through the door our son would smile ear to ear in excitement. She was instrumental in helping him get comfortable with tummy time, starting solids, and his transition from 3 to 2 naps. Beyond her incredible care for our child, she went well above and beyond normal nanny duties. While keeping our son happy, she also managed to fold clothes, do light cleaning, and cook for the entire family (she's a wonderful cook)! We 100% recommend Manjula to anyone who needs a nanny/sitter/cook!

I care for the people I help and feel I get along with most everyone because I am confident with my skills. but most of all I like to have fun. my specialty is with children of all ages. I have been with animals my entire life and I also volunteer at the animal shelter. I am happy to care for your animals and take quality care for their well being

I am so glad I found Bonnie, and I would definitely recommend her! She is reliable, responsible and she cares about my children like they are her own. Bonnie was an excellent babysitter who worked for us from October 2018 until the shelter in place order March 17, 2020. The kids loved her and we depended on her to pick up the two kids from their schools and make dinner with a meal kit. We trusted her to figure out activities to fill the time and get them a lot of exercise. She took the kids to parks, library and activities like T-ball. In the summer, she also gave our son swimming lessons, which was amazing for him.
