Child Care Available

Responds within 5 hours
Hello I have been working with kids for 15+ years including mental illness and special need children. I have over 4 years experience working in the ABA field with children age range of 4 years old - 18 years old. For the last 2 years I have been working with infants - toddlers. I enjoy when I am being challenged, especially when I learn new things. I love children and I enjoy spending time with them. My experiences outside of working I love to cook, organize, spend time with my family! When I was in college I volunteered at an Elementary and Middle school, a Counseling Center as a mentor. I am also really good at following rules but usually I need minimum instructions. I cannot wait to meet a new family and make a positive impact with the family.

I cannot say more positive things about Flor. I was lucky to have Flor come into our life when I became a first time Mom and it was my greatest blessing. Flor is so kind, considerate, fun, playful, and loving. Her and our daughter are best of friends. It has been so special to watch. On top of that Flor has great organizing, cleaning, and even cooking skills that you can leverage. I loved all of her help with keeping the house in good order, helping out with laundry and even organizing for us. Flor has amazing attention to detail and always reminds me of any household or baby items I need to order which is helpful. I would no doubt hire Flor again if we had another young child and not ready to send him/her into daycare yet for socialization.

My children are grown and I don't have grandchildren so I have not hired Yen-chi to care for them, but I most certainly would. I've known Yen-chi for a long time. She is very caring person who is dependable, honest, intelligent and is extremely hard working. Yen-chi is thoughtful and loyal. She is cheerful, has a positive attitude and is a pleasure to be around.

Ally babysat our 2 year old son several times where they did indoor activities like painting and outdoor activities like water play. She kept our son engaged throughout the 4-6 hours that she spent with him. I appreciated her flexibility if there were times when we needed her to come earlier or stay later. Our son asks for her every now and then which to me illustrates the positive interaction they shared. I highly recommend Ally to my friends and family and will hire her again and again.

Fun, Loving, Experienced Nanny

Growing up, my mother ran a daycare for special needs kids out of our home. I feel that the way I was raised was the best preparation a person could ask for when they aspire to work with kids. I began my first nannying job at 17 for an 8 and a 10-year-old, I cared for them after school for 3 years and full time in the summers. Following that job I began nannying full time for a family with three kids, a 6-month-old, a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old. I stayed with this family for 7 years, until they moved away. Following this job I worked as a preschool teacher for 2 years. I was the primary teacher in the 2-year-old class for a year and then the primary teacher in the 3-year-old class after that. I love crafts, music, board games and sports. Whether I am changing diapers, pushing a stroller, helping with homework, or driving kids to soccer practice, I do what I can each and every day to make sure every child is in a safe, caring, and of course fun environment!

Emma worked for our family for 6 years, starting from when my kids were 6mo, 3 and 5.5years old. Not sure how I would have survived those years without her. First and foremost, she is a natural with kids of all ages. She is loving, kind and supportive but also expects kids to follow the rules and be respectful which was very important to me. She knew how best to support each of my kids and their different personalities. My kids adored and respected Emma. In addition to her skills with the kids, Emma is incredibly dependable, creative, artistic and organized which was so helpful in managing our busy house. I highly recommend Emma...she will be an asset in any situation!

Tori was amazing as our summer sitter! She was engaged with us as well as the kids, happy, playful, and did all the things a nanny should do - coming up with fun activities daily, teaching the kids manners at every opportunity, and just plain being FUN. We were all so sad our time together ended but we'd absolutely have Tori back in a heartbeat!

I have 15 years of experience babysitting and 6 years of Nanny experience. I have worked with children of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, health conditions and special needs. I work with children who have Autism or behavioral issues. I have a bachelors degree in Nutritional Sciences. I have completed various programs/coursework in the areas of Child Life Specialist, Lactation Consulting and Massage Therapy. I a member of The American Red Cross, Children's Disaster Services, and SJ CERT. Safety is ALWAYS a priority to me. I did hospital work with children at Stanford LPCH and Philippines. I believe that music and dance are amazing ways to help children develop better communication and have fun exercising. I love arts and crafting, painting, reading out loud to children, singing, and dancing (and I encourage them to do the same). Like a coach I want children to believe in themselves and know that they can achieve; so I encourage them to be independent.

Michele showed great attention to detail, compassion and enthusiasm in everything she did. She had outstanding techniques to help them acclimate to her and their new routine. By day 2, our boys were simply obsessed with her (which was surprising to us as our youngest had a case of stranger danger/separation anxiety). It helped that she came up with so many activities to keep our boys engaged and happy. She was also very communicative, keeping us in the loop throughout the day with updates and pictures. She was even willing to talk during her off hours to recap their day and address any concerns we may have. In my opinion, that's going above and beyond! If it wasn't for our full time childcare needs, Michele would no doubt still be with us!

I am a big sister, a daughter, and a mother to an 8-month-old pup named Juniper! I a new graduate from the University of Southern California, and plan to start a graduate program for occupational therapy in June. I've always dreamt of working in pediatrics and have worked in positions that gave me the opportunity to work with special needs children. For two years, I worked as a karate coach at an occupational therapy based karate program for children with special needs. I also worked at a deaf preschool and gained experience working with infants. Working as an applied behavioral analysis for a year also provided me the necessary training to understand and adapt to any situation! Additionally, I worked with an occupational therapist for 3 years and have built amazing relationships with each family. I can provide resume, CPR certification, and references.

Rose is fantastic! She has been beyond wonderful with our daughter. We've been so lucky to know our daughter is with someone who is always patient, compassionate, creative, and active with her. It's great to have confidence that our daughter will be socializing, learning, and gaining crucial life and social skills during the toddler years. Our daughter will be going to full-time preschool in September, and we are really sad to be losing Rose, but we know that the next family and kid(s) she works with will be just as lucky as we've been.
