About this nanny job
First time, WFH parents looking for a regular part time sitter to hang out with our toddler after daycare! Primary duties would be on Tues-Thurs afternoons, but we would like to add a few hours on a weekend day / date night in the future. Rate starting at $25 but negotiable for a very experienced individual! Ideally we are are looking for a long-term care partner who is willing to work with our family.
We are both working full time from home and our son attends a wonderful daycare in the neighborhood, but due to COVID staffing shortages, daycare pick up ends at 4pm. We are seeking someone to work with three days a week to pick him up from daycare after 3pm and spend a few hours engaging with him while we finish off our workdays.
We are seeking someone who loves engaging with active toddlers, can provide interesting communication and play opportunities, and understands that he is a little human who is building his confidence as he grows. Our daycare follows Magda Gerber's REI philosophy. It'd be great to find someone who also appreciates that approach, but not required.
Daycare is located a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute drive from our home. Caregiver can pick him up in their own car (safety checks) or use our car, but also can to pick him up on foot using the stroller we drop off.
Duties at home will include engaging / playing / communicating with him, changing diapers as necessary, and starting the dinner process. We have prepared dinner for him so the caregiver will only need to help with feeding.
Our son is playful, kind, very physically capable and absolutely adores playing and interacting with others. He likes bringing you books to read to him, and sharing his toys. He also loves to be outdoors on walks or to play. You will have access to our fully fenced in back yard for safe outdoor play or you can take him on a walk to nearby parks. We also have a membership to the Zoo (a short walk away) and plenty of toys to entertain him with!
Because our son cannot yet be vaccinated, we are keeping to fairly tight COVID protocols. We are vaccinated + booster, do not participate in group indoor activities, and have a very small bubble contacts we've safely maintained throughout the pandemic. We require anyone working with us to be fully vaccinated / boosted and to be equally cautious in their off-time. We are comfortable with the caregiver wearing a mask, and we can also wear masks in shared spaces.
Looking forward to chatting more!
