About this nanny job
We are looking for a part-time nanny to help with our 2 sons starting when they are 15 months and 1 month old. My husband is self-employed and won’t have a proper paternity leave, and I will be recovering from a c-section and won’t be able to lift my older son for about 8 weeks after the surgery.
Once I am recovered I have some professional certifications I will be working on during the remainder of my maternity leave, so I need some blocks of time to study and someone to give 100% attention to the kids during those times. The job will continue until we feel comfortable sending our younger son to day care, probably around the time he is 6 months old at the end of March.
Our home is a decent sized 2-bedroom apartment. We regularly work from home so we just got small desks for our bedroom so that we can lock ourselves away and give the nanny full range of the rest of the apartment with the kids. We are located close to a park for daily walks, etc.
Our older son is a total sweetheart and he is smart and catches onto things. He uses some baby sign language, says a few words, loves to sit and flip through all of his favorite books, and he can walk but still wants a finger to hold while he drags you around the house. He is also going through typical toddler behaviors, such as some screaming when we don’t give him what he wants, but he is pretty easy to calm down.
I don’t know what my younger son is like yet, but I will start to get to know him when he arrives at the end of September!
A little more about us, my husband and I are easy going and accommodating, and we try and create a relaxed and welcoming environment. We do have philosophies and expectations about how we want to raise our kids, which we will communicate to you and will need your support in creating consistency for the kids’ upbringing.
We are looking for someone located close by and has experience with young children. Since our older son isn’t in day care right now, we want someone who will keep him engaged in fun and give him some educational structure. For our infant son, we need someone who feels comfortable juggling him with me, and has experience with infant care. I don’t expect any cleaning help outside of the messes that the kids make.
Hours would be from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m, preferably Mondays - Thursdays but we are a bit flexible with exact days and times.
