A busy, professional Needham family is seeking an efficient nanny/household manager to join their family beginning in early September (flexible between August 29th and September 6th)! Nanny duties will be for 3 children – a social 9 year old, a smart 7 year old, and a joyful 5 year old who are all a blast to spend time with.
The schedule for this position is M-Th 10:30am-6:30pm and F 9:30am-5:30pm for a guarantee of 40 hours/week. A 7:45am start on no school days is needed. Child-related duties include school pick up (camp pick up in the summer), facilitating afternoon activities and outings, unpacking and repacking backpacks, lunches, snacks, and sports gear, providing homework supervision, and helping to keep track of and manage their busy school schedules. The ability to follow school/activity emails and notices in order to manage activities independently is key here! Household duties include healthy children’s meal preparation, light family meal support 2x/week, keeping track of and restocking household items, grocery shopping, errands, family laundry, the occasional organization project, and general tidying.
The best match for this family is someone who connects on an individual level with each child in their care, understands their unique personalities, and is happy to support them as they continue to grow into healthy, kind, confident, and independent adults! Reliability is crucial, as is being proactive, intuitive, and able to manage a busy schedule with ease. The family has a home in Vermont and would welcome their nanny to join them on their ventures there, though this is not required.
