A busy Brookline family of five is looking for an experienced and active nanny/household assistant to join their family beginning ASAP! Care will be for 3 children – a creative 7 year old, a science experiment-loving 6 year old, and a 4 year old who loves nothing more than telling stories.
The base schedule for this position is M/Tu/Th/F 10:30am-6:30pm and W 11:30am-7:30pm for a guarantee of 40 hours/week. If desired, Wednesday hours can be 10:30am-6:30pm instead. If less hours are preferred, the family can consider a schedule of M-F 11:30am-6:30pm for a guarantee of 35 hours/week. The first several hours of each shift are focused on child-related household support, such as children’s laundry, packing school lunches, tidying playspaces and bedrooms, organization projects, and errands. School pickups are at 2:30pm and 3pm respectively, with the first being within walking distance and the second requiring a drive into Boston before coming home to outdoor playtime and assistance through the dinner and bathtime routines. It is unlikely for the nanny to have all 3 children at once as a parent or second nanny will always be available to assist.
To offset their busy schedules, this family loves to have fun and are eager to welcome a nanny to their family who is an active multitasker who sees themselves as a thoughtful partner in raising happy, healthy children. There is a pool on the property so comfort and strength in swimming is preferred, but not a necessity. Being knowledgeable about early childhood education and social-emotional development all the while being a team player are important! Spanish speakers are highly encouraged to apply! Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
