A sweet Newton family is seeking a live in OR live out nanny to join their family beginning ASAP! The family has three children, ages 7, 4.5, and 10 months, though care is primarily for the baby as the older two children attend full day school from 8:30am-4:30pm. If interested in living in, accommodations include a bedroom and bathroom on the 3rd floor of the home or in the finished basement.
The schedule for this position is M-Th from 6:30am-10:30am and 3pm-7:30pm, F from 6:30am-10:30am, and Su from 3pm-7:30pm for a guarantee of 42.5 hours per week. Duties include all aspects of childcare, developmentally appropriate activity planning, going on exciting outings and spending time outdoors as the weather allows, and making schedules for play-based learning. Responsibilities for the older children include getting them ready for school, serving them breakfast, and cleaning up after the meal. The afternoon routine involves dividing and conquering with mom, supervising homework, simple family meal preparation twice per week or family meal support each night, children’s laundry, helping with baths, and prepping backpacks when time permits.
There will be a parent home most of the time and a reliable vehicle to arrive and use for work purposes is a must. They are excited to meet nannies who are gentle, patient, dedicated to their craft, and open to being a bit flexible with their schedule. A calm approach with children and the ability to provide boundaries and discipline when needed is ideal. Top priority will be given to candidates who have household experience, a background in early childhood education, and/or child development. Mandarin speakers are highly encouraged to apply! Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine.
