About this nanny job

We are a young family with a 3-month old son in Long Island City seeking part-time, in-home help ranging from 15-25 hours a week—starting closer to 15—during weekdays. We both work from home, and one or both of us will be in the house during your care. My husband works full-time from a basement office and I work as an actor, with remote auditions and outside gigs that vary in frequency. We mostly need someone to care for, play with, feed, and help put to sleep our baby when an audition comes up, when we have doctor appointments, and when we need to get home projects like laundry, cleaning, and breast-milk pumping done around the house—and the occasional nap! Because we recognize that experienced caretakers are usually seeking both flexibility and stability, we are willing to provide a few more hours than we technically “need” at this time to build in a buffer for the future. What that means day to day is that we likely will be interacting with our baby and checking in frequently during your care. If that sounds like a good fit for you, please reach out with a note, your profile, and your availability. We plan to conduct interviews the week of October 18th, with follow-ups and reference checks in late October and care starting in early November. We are looking for the following qualifications: - At least five, but preferably over five, years’ experience caring for newborns and/or infants - Infant CPR-choking-certified required and infant First Aid knowledge preferred - Non-smoker - Cat-friendly: We have a very active feline who loves to be involved and we’ll need you to be comfortable around her - A genuine joy in working with babies and an extra caring touch; our son was a preemie and we’re trying to guide him gently toward his milestones - A language additional to English is a big plus; we speak English and Hebrew in the home and welcome other languages and cultures - Bachelor’s degree preferred - Experience with and/or knowledge of early childhood development preferred - Please note: As a family, we tend toward “attachment-style” parenting, with an emphasis on baby-led feeding (mom will be breastfeeding or supplying pumped milk during your care) and sleep cues (no sleep training) along with lots of time in the play gym, reading, and listening to music and languages. We also have an outdoor patio and shared backyard in our development that you are welcome to use with the baby. - Full COVID-19, T-DAP, flu, and other standard vaccinations required
