Suzanne H. - Seeking Work in San Francisco
Suzanne Halka
West of Twin Peaks, San Francisco$25/hr  |  6 yrs experience
My name is Suzanne and I have cared for children in various capacities for over 15 years here and on the East Coast. I have also babysat and nannied in San Francisco for the past four years. I started as a babysitter for my younger sister and neighbors, then progressed to teaching tot Creative Movement / summer camps to teaching Ballet and dance to ages 2 - adult, teaching and directing theatre with children ages 5 - 16, teaching art and free play / for gym to toddlers, and finally to nannying.

I love nannying because I get the opportunity to help foster wonder and learning, and share in kids’ joys and discoveries, as well as learn from them as much as they learn from me! Kids I babysit for and I have enjoyed: singing; dancing; building; doing arts and crafts; going to the park, playgrounds, beach, library, museums, and tot classes; lots of reading, etc. Exploring the city; new cultural experiences and art forms; science and nature exploration; reading and making up stories together; creating art; and safely pushing boundaries are all big favorites of mine!

I have been required to do light housekeeping for former families, and would be happy to do the same for yours while the child is napping if desired. I love dogs and am happy to work for a family with a pooch, but am allergic to cats. I have experience nannying for kids between the ages of 4 months old and 13 years old, as well as teaching children as old as 16. I speak English and Spanish.

I grow attached to my families and am still in touch with former families. It’s so exciting to see how everyone has grown and progressed! I can’t wait to meet you and your little one(s) today!

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in San Francisco, CA

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

San Francisco Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in San Francisco? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in San Francisco?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in CA? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
