Nanny needed for 6-year-old twins in Mountain View (Full-time or part-time) We're looking for a nanny for our 6-year-old twins, Gray and Ella. This position can be full-time or part-time in the afternoons. They are heading into first grade — creative and lots of fun. You are someone experienced — warm, active, and ready to engage them in homework, extracurriculars and adventuring around the Bay. Schedule: Full-time: Every weekday (except Thursday) you’ll come to our house at 10am to do some house tasks, pick them up from school at 2:40pm, and stay until 6pm. On Thursdays, they have an early release day, so you’ll pick them up directly from school at 1:25pm and stay until 9pm (date night!). Part-time: Every weekday (except Thursday) you’ll pick the kids up from school at 2:40pm, and stay until 6pm. On Thursdays, they have an early release day, so you’ll pick them up at 1:25pm and stay until 9pm (date night!). Activities with the kids: You’ll help the kids with their homework, play learning games, take them out for fun activities around the Bay Area, shuttle them to piano and swimming lessons, and sometimes host after school playdates with a few friends. They are learning how to read and do basic math, and we’d like to encourage this development with activities outside of school as well, along with art, music, dance, puzzles, and exploration to stimulate their brains and budding personalities! Tasks for the household: You will help with extra tasks around the house, like prepping kids lunches and dinners, family dishes and laundry, and tidying up (and teaching the kids to tidy up after themselves!). You’ll do occasional errands like food shopping, kids clothes shopping, or picking up kids birthday presents. You’ll walk our dog Chloe at least once a day. Optionally, you can do additional cooking and caring for the garden. We can plan these activities together, based on our needs and your interests and proclivities. The full-time job is a total of 40 hrs/wk, and the part-time is 20-25 hrs/wk, negotiable. There will be opportunities for extra babysitting and house-sitting when we go out of town, if you're interested. You'll need your own car, safe, maintained and insured. You’ll need to be CPR-trained, plus a non-smoker. And we prefer someone with a college degree. We pay $25-30/hour, depending on experience. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our family! - Leslie, Ian, Gray & Ella
