A kindhearted family located in gorgeous Sharon is excited to welcome a warm, positive nanny/family assistant to their home beginning on January 3rd or January 9th! They have 2 children, a smart, caring 8.5 year old and a fun-loving, energetic 3 year old! Both children attend school until mid-afternoon daily.
This position offers a schedule of 30-35 guaranteed hours/week with the core required hours being 3pm-6pm each day. A possible schedule is M-F 11:30am-6:30pm, though the extra hours that fall around the required 3pm-6pm time frame are flexible and the family is open to other configurations. If interested in a specific scheduling configuration please inquire. Optional extra hours may be available via occasional Friday date nights. While the children are in school, household responsibilities will be the focus and include cleaning up from the morning routine/rush, household laundry, family errands, basic family meal preparation (chopping veggies, or full meals if the candidate enjoys cooking), packing school lunches, preparing snacks, and keeping children’s play spaces and rooms organized.
Childcare duties include meeting the older child at the bus stop, then picking the younger child up at preschool, which is a 5 minute drive away, then continuing through the afternoon routine which includes providing a snack and dinner, making sure there is playtime to expend energy, and overseeing homework.
The family can’t wait to meet someone who has a naturally calm demeanor, positive outlook, and ideally, experience with sensitive children as they will excel in this position! Having prior experience supporting children with frustration tolerance and managing their emotions is a plus! A reliable vehicle for work use is strongly preferred, but a family car may be made available. Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
