Dana Schleske

Professional Nanny and Family Assistant Available

Sitter in Oakland

Hello. My name is Dana and I am a professional nanny/family assistant. I am looking for a new nanny position. I currently care for a six month old infant, but his family's needs have changed, and the position ends June 5 (or sooner). My last position ended last December. I cared for twin boys from 7 months of age to 2 1/2 years. They are now in school. Infant/Child CPR & First Aid Certified, TB Tested. Registered with Trustline (background checked & finger printed), Excellent Driving Record, New Car and Insurance , 15 Years of Experience (all ages, twins, and shared care), and Several Excellent References Available. A past employer writes, "Dana Schleske was our nanny from December 2012 to December 2014. She took care of our twin boys, beginning from when they were 7 months old. Her duties included dressing, feeding, taking the boys to activities, light housework, taking care of them when they were sick, reading / storytime, supervising indoor and outdoor play, naptime, etc. She was very adaptable as the boys grew up and their needs changed. Dana did a great job keeping the boys safe, stimulated and happy. She had a long day alone with the boys as both of us work. Therefore she had a significant amount of responsibility to manage the boys days, from morning activities, through lunch, naptime and afternoon activities. She took the initiative to suggest new activities for the boys to keep them entertained. She drove the boys daily to activities (park, Gymboree, etc.) in our vehicle, and she is a very careful and safe driver. Dana was very reliable and attentive to our preferences and wishes. She was also a good teacher for the boys, helping them learn what is appropriate behavior and what is not. They matured significantly while under her care. Our schedule also meant that we often dont get to speak to Dana face-to-face on a daily basis, but she is a good communicator and left us detailed notes about the boys. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dana as a nanny and/or family assistant. She is very professional, and would be an asset for any family looking to engage her." YY&D A past employer writes, "Dana is a truly amazing person. Not only is she kind, responsible, compassionate, thoughtful, fun and firm (when necessary) with our kids but she is beyond helpful, considerate, flexible, honest and giving with us grown-ups too. We trust her without hesitation. Dana is a loving, careful, and patient nanny. She looked after my almost 6 and 8 year old girls at the time (2 and 4 when she started with us) and did a fabulous job - they love her. Dana is always straightforward, courteous, considerate and goes the extra-mile every time. Dana loved to take the girls places and seemed to have no problem handling two energetic and slightly crazy girls (I don't know how she did it). I am a little fanatical about food and things and Dana respected my wishes and followed instructions well. If you are looking for responsible Childcare, Dana is it! Dana charges a professional nanny rate and is worth every penny!" Lynn A past employer writes, "Our son was three months old when Dana started working with us. Dana is great at what she does - my son really feels connected to her and always had a huge smile on his face when she arrived in the morning. She was very patient and attentive to his needs and enjoyed playing with him. Infants can be quite demanding and Dana always seemed to know exactly what to do in every situation. Plus she found the time to change his sheets, do the laundry, clean up after him and wash all the bottles. She is also very neat and organized and helped tremendously with ensuring his room was always in order. Dana left us because unfortunately I was laid off from my job. We all were very sorry to see her go!" Natalie
