A warm and wonderful Cambridge family is seeking a full time nanny for their 3 month old infant daughter beginning ASAP. There are 2 older siblings (4 years old and 2 years old) who will also need care on no school days, but this role is primarily focused on the baby.
The schedule for this position is M-F from 8am-4pm for 40 guaranteed hours/week. Both parents work from home in a closed office – mom 100% of the time and dad for the afternoons. Driving is not required for the role, however parking is available. This role is completely child centered. Core responsibilities include all aspects of care for the baby including bottle preparation and sterilization, baby food preparation when table ready, developmentally appropriate activity planning, structured and unstructured play, and spending time outdoors each day.
Additional duties include simple children’s meal prep and clean up, emptying or running the dishwasher, children’s laundry/linens, and general tidying as you move throughout the day. Each day should be focused on the enrichment of the children, engaging them in activities that promote language (constantly reading, talking, and singing to build vocabulary), stimulating their innate curiosity in the world around them, and having fun, all while using your knowledge of child development. Attentive, loving care and the ability to find teachable moments throughout the day are the keys to success in this household!
Ideal candidates for this role are patient, energetic, easy going, proactive, and have a positive attitude. A sensitive and nurturing approach to the children in this home will set the care provider up for success. Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
