About this nanny job

We are looking for a sitter to care for our 7-month-old son during the day. We live in a one-bedroom apartment with two cats, so the person would need to be comfortable with animals. We live about two blocks up from Lake Merritt and are walking distance to several parks, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. Our son loves to picnic outside and is also completely content hanging out at home. We have no expectation of help with cleaning, with the exception of cleaning up after mealtimes during the day (i.e. cleaning whatever bottles, bowls, spoons, etc. are used, wiping down highchair, etc.). Our main priority is finding someone who is engaging, energetic, and nurturing, and can keep up with our son's energy. He is generally a very happy, bouncy, busy baby who likes to dance, play on his activity table, play with toys, and read books. I am a children's therapist and will be in and out of the home, which was helpful for our former sitter and allows for a slow transition. I can also work in an office if me coming in and out becomes too challenging for our son. My husband is returning to work on 1/31/2022, so we hope to have someone start part time the week before in order to become familiar with our son and our hopes about structure and routine. There will also be days in which we won't need someone for the full day or holidays that I will be off. We can guarantee 32 hours per week of pay, although the person will likely not be working all of those hours in a given week. At this time, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we would need someone 9-5:30, and we have a lot of flexibility for Thursdays and Fridays. We will also pay for major holidays if they fall on a day that the sitter would have otherwise worked. We are also open to discussing this arrangement and reevaluate the agreement if we find the best fit for our family, and signing a contract if that provides peace of mind.
