A busy West Newton family is looking for a full time nanny beginning ASAP! Although this is a three child household, care will be for their 11 year old daughter who is a caring, good student and their 8 year old son who is curious and loves to build things. Driving is an important piece of this position, so feeling comfortable and confident while driving the children is necessary!
The schedule for this position is M-F 1pm-7:30pm or 8pm with an end time of 8pm preferred on at least some nights (35-40 guaranteed hours/week). If less hours are preferred, the family is very open to a schedule of just afternoon hours. The biggest part of this role is dividing and conquering the children’s schedules with dad, working through the afternoon/evening routines, supporting the children with homework, unpacking backpacks, and children’s meal/snack preparation. Other responsibilities include children’s laundry, accepting grocery deliveries, keeping track of item stock, occasional household organization tasks and errands, and transporting the children to/from activities.
One parent is currently working from home on occasion and one parent is home full time. Candidates should take pride in helping the family unit run smoothly, be active, calm, and comfortable working alongside dad to manage the children’s days. Those who are honest, proactive, experienced, and comfortable driving with children are great matches for this family. The family also has a summer home in New Hampshire that includes a separate, one bedroom apartment where the nanny can stay when joining on travel. Travel is preferred, but not required. Candidates must be fully vaccinated, including the COVID vaccine and booster (when applicable).
