About this nanny job

Hello! Our family of four is looking for consistent, part-time help during the week in Hyde Park to assist with end-of-the-day responsibilities. With two demanding jobs that can sometimes be unpredictable in the evenings, we’re hoping to find a partner who can help ensure a smooth transition for our family from daycare/school/work into the evening. About us: we live in a townhome in Hyde Park (no pets), and one of us will usually be working from home in our office, while the other may be commuting home. On a typical weekend, you could find us visiting multiple neighborhood playgrounds, biking/scooting to a farmer’s market or the beach, and reading lots of books. Our toddler has limited screen time (only 1-2 cartoons during his bath), so we’re looking for someone active and creative. About the role: We are transitioning back to work after parental leave, so some of this may slightly shift as we figure out our new rhythm. Right now, we know that we need help with a mix of household management responsibilities in addition to childcare. Household tasks would include light toy pickup/organization, kids laundry (usually washed, but putting away/organizing drawer) making healthy snacks and packing lunch boxes, helping with dishes (loading/unloading dishwasher) and tidying kitchen/common areas. Typical childcare responsibilities would include picking up the kids ~4:30-5 (one location until September, when they’ll be at two locations in the neighborhood), playing from 5-6pm, at which point we’d eat around 6-6:30. While we eat, you could help get the bath/bedrooms ready upstairs, and then while we do bedtime, you could help tidy in the kitchen, prep lunches/snacks, etc. This of course is flexible, as one of us may have to work late so we’d need more help at bedtime, or on the flip side we may be done early and want to go play while you help get dinner started; hopefully this provides a good sense of the role. About you: you genuinely enjoy engaging and playing with children vs watch from afar. You like being outdoors in most types of weather, and you’re comfortable walking 1-2 miles in the neighborhood for pickup and adventures. You’re organized, a strong communicator, and able to anticipate needs. While we are happy to explain where things go and share expectations, ultimately over time we want you to take the lead and see ways to jump in and help. For the right fit, we’re happy to guarantee hours, and willing to consider a higher rate based on experience.
