Meet Bridget

Hi! I've just moved to Santa Monica from San Antonio, Texas :)

I have a lot of experience caring for children. I've cared for kids as young as 6 weeks old, up through 5 years old, while I worked in a daycare. I worked in a residential treatment facility with youth aged 6-18 years. I've been babysitting for over 10 years. I have a younger brother and several younger cousins that I've also taken care of many times.

Hi! I've just moved to Santa Monica from San Antonio, Texas :)

I have a lot of experience caring for children. I've cared for kids as young as 6 weeks old, up through 5 years old, while I worked in a daycare. I worked in a residential treatment facility with youth aged 6-18 years. I've been babysitting for over 10 years. I have a younger brother and several younger cousins that I've also taken care of many times.

I'm CPR/first aid certified and trained as a lifeguard. I also have training in transporting children safely, so picking up kids or taking them to the park is not a problem. I can also understand and speak a small amount of Spanish.

I've listed my hourly rate as at least $15/hour and this is for watching between 1 and 2 children. I would like to add an extra $2 per hour, per kid, but understand that is not always possible. I'm willing to travel a far distance, but would definitely appreciate any help with gas.

As stated above, I have experience with ALL ages. I've changed hundreds and hundreds of diapers, cleaned up vomit and other spills, taken kids as young as 9 months to the park, up through teenagers. I am comfortable teaching babies, children, and even teens to swim. I avoid using electronics as a way to "entertain" kids. You will almost never find the TV or games on, unless you designate a movie night. I'm always encouraging kids to go outside with me to play, or coming up with crafts to do inside when the whether does not permit outside play. I love games and sports. I'm good with working on homework, and teaching basic school subjects (experience with the kids I worked with at the residential treatment facility, as well as with my 12-year-old brother).

I have worked with kids who have down-syndrom, autism, and even hearing issues. I am very patient with children and ages of all kinds. I am very open and communicative and love feedback from parents. I also feel valued with parents ask my opinions on matters, as I've studied Psychology, and have over 10 years experience working and being patient with kids who come from several different backgrounds.

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions. I've tried to put as much detail as possible in my profile here, so please look through it. I built a large network of families that I sat for in San Antonio, so I can provide reference letters and numbers, as well as a resume, and copies of my certifications!

Hope to hear from you soon.

Lindsay E. says:
Bridget goes above and beyond what I've experienced in a "babysitter" or "nanny". She is a very organized, mindful young women. Bridgett has a gift to embrace a child's active imagination. My daughter spent her time with her learning and having fun. She was at ease while I was away! We look forward to seeing Bridget again.

Elizabeth C. says:
Bridget is an amazing nanny. She's always early and keeps the day and our home organized. Bridget plans fun things for our son to do everyday. She is kind yet firm with the rules we set for our son. She cooks amazing pancakes and comes from a wonderful family herself. She has a gift with children.

Sandra G. says:
Bridget was only able to help our family for a few weeks before she left Texas to move to California, but we were VERY sorry to see her go. Our 2 year old twins absolutely loved her and still ask about her. My husband calls her "the baby whisperer" because she was able to engage them and keep them entertained and happy for hours. She is very proactive and knows what to do. She was a wonderful resource for us... More

Estebanie T. says:
Bridget is one of the most kind-hearted individuals I know. We worked together at a long term placement for children who have been taken by CPS and cannot go back to their families. She was not only my co-workers, but became one of my very best friends.
