A busy Wellesley family is looking for a fun, organized nanny/household manager to care for their curious, joyful 8 year old daughter beginning in September! They are focused on finding the right match, so the start date is flexible for the right person. Also in the home is a friendly, hypoallergenic Labradoodle.
The schedule for this position is M-F 10:30am/11:30am-6:30pm for a guarantee of either 35 or 40 hours/week based on the nanny’s choosing. The ability to shift to a 9am or 9:30am start time on no school days is preferred. As this is a hybrid role, childcare responsibilities include school pick up in the afternoon, transportation to after school activities, homework supervision and support as needed, packing and preparing the child’s backpack, lunch, and sports equipment to make sure she is all set to go the next day, and arranging playdates. Household duties include walking the dog upon arrival, grocery shopping, children’s laundry, folding household laundry, and general tidying throughout the day (running the dishwasher, cleaning up after breakfast, etc.).
Staying mindful of being fair but firm, plus understanding when the child may need some extra support with homework or patient encouragement with household chores is key. Those who are organized, engaging, and genuinely care about their profession are the perfect matches for this family and they can’t wait to meet you! They’re excited to meet someone who is looking to stay with their family for years to come. Both parents spend some time working from home and some time working in person. Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
