Nanny/Household Manager

I was born in Colorado and spent most of my days hiking in my backyard and riding my bike. I moved to the bay area in January 2018 and I have fallen in love with everything that has to offer! I enjoy the outdoors such as going for hikes, walks, bike rides, snowboarding and trips to the beach. I am also an avid reader and love inspiring others, especially kids to read. I started off babysitting my nieces in high school and inevitably fell in love with kids. I have been a full-time nanny for nearly 10 years with experience teaching early preschool. I have great organization skills, and I thrive on routines and consistency. I worked with all ages from newborns to teens with extensive infant/toddler experience. I have a keen ability to provide a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment that is suitable for various ages. It is very important to me to create a loving and lasting bond with all of my nanny kids, and I hope to find a wonderful family to become a part of!

Angie is an excellent nanny and an even better person. If we could convince her to move back to Colorado and be our nanny again we would do it in a second (but we also respect her desire to explore and try new things). She checks all of the boxes you could want in a nanny but her biggest strength is her love of and instant connection with children. Our kids adored her from the very beginning. She is the right combination of fun and silly, but also instills respect in them. They listened to and respected her but she also gave them the freedom to be kids. She is also an incredibly calming presence, and was really good at defusing meltdowns and conflicts between our children (we have 3 girls, now age 4, 6, and 7). I honestly think we learned more from her than she did from us. She was always on time, was totally professional, and is just an incredibly nice person.

Hi there!!! I would be happy to babysit for your little one! I would be available:8:30 am-2 p.m. Mondays/ 8:30 am-8 p.m. Wednesdays/ 8:30 am-2 p.m. Thursdays. A little bit about us: I do have an 11-year-old boy who is in 5th grade. We love going to the library, swimming, riding our bikes together. We do speak Spanish at home. * Spanish Tutor I have lots of experience teaching Spanish to kids. You can give your kids the gift of acquiring a second language and why not now that they can learn easily. Take advantage of your kids window of opportunity to learn Spanish now. I teach your kids with language immersion, an easy and fun way to learn the language. There are no translations, your kids connect images with words and learning becomes automatic. Kids will learn first words and intuitively they will start noticing patterns and then phrases, sentences and finally they will start a conversation. * Elementary Math Tutor *Swimming Tutor

Clara is a very sweet person who will take such good care of your baby/child. She has been hands on with both of my kids from day 1. My kids love being around her. I can go to work knowing that my children are in good hands with Clara. My kids understand a lot of Spanish thanks to Clara who speaks to them in both Spanish and English. I am sad to lose her as my children will be attending school. Whomever decides to choose Clara to care for their baby/child will not regret it.
