Meet Ruth

I have more than 25 years of experience caring for young children to teenagers. I have helped many different families all over the bay area. I have taken child development classes at foothill college. I have worked as a teachers assistant in preschools and also in kinder garden classes. I love caring for all kids as it is a passion of mine. I also have helped around the house form picking up groceries to light duty house work. I have excellent references that I would welcome you to call and verify. I would describe my self as a very on time and caring person. I handle stressful situations well from dealing with infants to older children. I have worked with families with 2 kids and I have no problem handling all the challenges that come with that. I have worked with families in Los Altos Hills, Stanford, Menlo Park, And Palo Alto. I like to take my time learning about each individual child so that way I can learn how to take care of them best. I am also Bilingual so if the family chooses I can also teach them another language. We would enjoy reading, going to the park, singing taking small trips around the area if that is OK with the parents. I look forward to helping your family.

Anne R. Hired Ruth

Ruth was a wonderful caregiver for my daughter - she cared for her full time from about six months to three years, then worked part time for one more year until we moved. Ruth always knew what my daughter needed, even if we didn't know she needed it - starting with her offering to expertly trim my daughter's sharp fingernails during her interview, a task that I still struggled with as a new mom. Ruth focused on communicating and interacting with my daughter throughout the day. They played, talked, sang and read books together. She made sure to engage her in age-appropriate activities ranging from nearly daily trips to the local park, where my daughter made lots of friends, to read-aloud time at the library. With her experience, Ruth knew how to set rules, to establish daily routines, how to add spontaneity as needed ... in short, she made it easy for me to leave for work because I knew that my daughter was in excellent hands.
