Closed Job #710

Gentle, Experienced, & Progressive Long-Term Nanny for Two

Schedule

  • 8 AM-4:30 PM Monday-Friday

    Occasional date nights desired, but not required

    Travel, domestic and international, required

    42.5 hours, including 2.5 hours of overtime pay, per week

This warm and friendly family of four is looking for a knowledgeable, collaborative, and inclusive nanny who is ready to make a very long-term commitment of, ideally, five or more years. They have two children, big sister, who turned two in January, and 3-month old baby brother.

For the first several months of the position, nanny will only be responsible for big sister. She is described as talkative, observant, and cautious. She loves butterflies, singing, reading, and dancing. She goes to music classes twice per week and mom and dad plan to enroll her in additional classes/activities as they become available and/or age appropriate. She is not yet potty trained and while she’s a great night sleeper, she has recently fallen off her daytime nap schedule, so a nanny who can provide very gentle support with potty training and naps is strongly desired. This family does not subscribe to any childcare methods which involve “crying it out.” 

Big sister attends physical therapy once per month as she has some motor skill delays, but she is expected to catch up with her peers. She only recently began walking and while she is overall a very easy-going child, she tends to be somewhat risk-averse, so nanny should be eager to encourage her independence. However, safety is always of the utmost importance, as big sister also has a medical condition resulting in an enlarged heart and abnormal blood vessels. Nanny does not need to be experienced with special needs or medically fragile children, but does need to be mindful of big sister’s limitations and attentive to any alarming symptoms which may require prompt medical care. 

Baby brother is a calm, even-tempered infant who eats and sleeps well. He is exclusively breastfed currently, but he’ll begin taking expressed breastmilk when mom returns to work. Mom is on maternity leave until August and dad will begin paternity leave when mom returns to work. Nanny should be experienced with infants and expect to care for both children beginning in the fall. By this time, baby brother will also be on solids and will likely have a very different daily routine than he currently does. The plan is for big sister to start a preschool program around the time that nanny begins providing full-time care for baby brother in the fall, but because of her health and development, a final decision won’t be made until closer to that time. Depending on her signs of readiness, she may be enrolled in a full-day program, partial-day program, or may remain home with nanny until she is closer to age 3.

Finding an exceptional long-term fit is this family’s priority, so there is flexibility on the start date for the right candidate. The ideal candidate is highly engaging and attentive, minimizing distractions like non-emergency phone use. Candidates should also be patient, respectful, and communicative with the parents and children alike–big sister loves to have conversations about anything and everything and has fantastic language skills, so continuing to encourage her verbal skills and curiosity is very important. While not required, it is preferred that nanny is bilingual in English and any other language. Mom is bilingual in English and German and dad is trilingual in English, German, and Danish. This family would love their children to be immersed in languages. Additionally, a nanny with some college studies is preferred but not required if the candidate has exceptional and extensive professional childcare experience. Finally, this family values candidates with more progressive caregiving styles, who actively challenge gender stereotypes, use gender-neutral language, and celebrate role models who defy traditional gender expectations.

Both parents work in the tech industry with mom in HR and dad in management. Dad works from home full-time, permanently. Mom will work from home for the first three months following the end of her maternity leave in August, and then will have a hybrid role working from the office in San Francisco three days per week and working from home the other two days per week beginning in December. A detached in-law unit is undergoing renovations and will become mom and dad’s home office space in the fall. 

These parents would love to find a nanny who is willing to occasionally provide date night care, but this is not required. They also have a 5-week international trip planned in July/August and would expect nanny to join them for this trip. Trips of this duration are not typical for this family, but they are looking for a nanny who can join them for travel, both domestic and international, as it comes up.

The bright and cozy Danville home is located in a very walkable area within a 10-15 minute stroll of downtown and the local library. A park is within driving distance but there is a school playground that can be walked to after school hours and there is a half acre of yard space which is also undergoing renovations to add two grassy terraces and a play structure. Inside, there is a spacious, open living area leading to a sliding door to a very large back patio and wrapping around to a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar. Through the kitchen is a hallway leading to the three bedrooms and a bathroom.

This family has one mellow, non-shedding Portuguese water dog. He is in training to become big sister’s service animal, so he spends much of his day indoors. Big sister loves to interact with him, so while no pet care is required, nanny should be very comfortable with medium-sized dogs.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on all vaccinations, including COVID-19

Experienced, Child-Led Nanny for 11-Month Old Baby & Big Brother

Schedule

  • 6:45 AM-3:45 PM Monday-Friday
  • 45 hours, including 5 hours of overtime pay, per week

This delightful and welcoming family of four is seeking an experienced, safety-oriented, and energetic nanny to care for two active children. Mom and dad describe their baby boy as ‘on the go’ and is just starting to walk. Big brother is intellectually gifted, and already starting to read at 4 years old! Nanny should be excited to follow the lead of the children in regards to their interests and be truly invested in nurturing their learning and development. The ideal candidate has the physical stamina to care for two children at different developmental stages for 9 hours per day, and has a keen understanding of the various stages of development.

Baby has a flexible routine that mom and dad are not looking to change, with naps and feedings during typical time frames, but no set times. He has a social personality and a calm nature, loves to crawl and play with toys, but is also content to observe the world around him, especially when watching his big brother!

Big brother is 4 years old, and attends a co-op preschool program very part time, and has a movement class two days per week. Mom, dad or grandma will handle all drop offs and pick ups and attend all classes with him. Big brother has a speech delay that is being addressed. While he overcomes this challenge, nanny must be comfortable taking the time to understand what he is saying, as he is very talkative! Big brother enjoys reading and math, with his current obsession being Numberblocks (the toys and the show). 

This position is completely child-focused. No household duties are expected, although, if nanny is comfortable with and has time for helping out with the children’s laundry and organizing playspaces, these parents would love for nanny to get big brother involved to foster independence and helpfulness..

Both parents are software engineers and work from home two days per week on the same days. Mom has an office on the lower level of the home that is equipped with a crib for the baby. During baby’s nap times, mom will go to another room to work. Dad also has a dedicated home office.

The Menlo Park home is on two levels, although everything child related is dedicated to the first floor. Upon entering, the home opens up into a wonderful, well-equipped play area that also has a huge playpen available as needed for the baby. This room leads into the kitchen, dining area and living room. There are baby gates for safety. Upstairs holds the family’s bedrooms. There is a backyard available for use for big brother, but because it has gravel, the backyard is not a safe play space for baby. Nanny will need to either hold, wear, or have baby in a stroller during backyard play.

Nanny should be comfortable with Grandma visiting throughout the week, as she may want to stop in for a visit or come to the home to pick up big brother for school or class.

The family is Covid cautious, and typically stays close to home. The home is in a quiet, safe, walkable neighborhood, and has a wonderful park within walking distance. If driving the kids is needed in the future, a car will be provided. 

This family does not have any pets. There is a critical allergy to cats in the family. They can consider candidates who own cats, but the nanny would need to change into fresh clothing provided by the family when arriving at work each day.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on all vaccinations, including COVID-19.

Loving & Organized Career Nanny for Family of Five

Base Schedule

  • 8:30 AM-5 PM Monday-Friday
  • 42.5 hours, including 2.5 hours of overtime pay, per week

Additional Hours

  • Flexibility to start as early as 7:30 AM and end as late as 6:30 PM (as needed)
  • Occasional date nights

This wonderful, down-to-earth family of five is looking for a dedicated career nanny with a deep love of children to join their family team. Of utmost importance to them is someone who is truly passionate about and committed to being a nanny. Candidates who are engaging, enjoy getting out and about, participating in classes, and coming up with creative and age-appropriate activities to keep little ones busy and learning are highly encouraged to apply!

Care is primarily for 16-month old baby sister, who is active, but not quite walking yet. She loves crawling, engaging with her siblings, exploring her toys, and getting out and about! It’s important to her parents that she has daily outings to parks, playspaces, the zoo, or classes. She loves food, and eats what the rest of the family eats. 

3 year old little brother goes to preschool three days per week from 9 AM to 12 PM. Nanny will drop him off and pick him up. In the fall he will be in full day preschool Monday-Friday. Big brother (turning 6 in April) is currently in Kindergarten from 8:30 AM to 3 PM. Parents will take care of his school drop offs and pick ups. Both brothers will be participating in summer programs. Although the majority of the day will be spent with baby girl, nanny should be comfortable caring for all three children. The boys will be with nanny after school, and managing the three of them on outings during school closures is a must.

The oldest boy is a friendly guy and quite self sufficient. He enjoys engaging with nanny and siblings, but also loves screentime. Nanny should be comfortable redirecting him away from screens and creating an engaging environment when screentime is over. 3 year old brother is very active, and loves to run! He is not always aware of his surroundings, so nanny should be a pro at ensuring he stays safe while on the move. His most recent passion is making mud pits with the garden hose!

This is a child-focused position but the ideal candidate is naturally tidy and organized and will be proactive with keeping the children’s spaces and common areas picked up. Only household duties relating to the children, including children’s laundry and meal prep, is required.

Mom and dad are college sweethearts and make a great team! Warm, friendly, and laid back, they are experienced nanny employers who have a track record of strong and mutually respectful relationships with those that they have employed. They are looking for a minimum of a 1.5 year commitment and may continue to expand their family, so the ideal candidate is open to growing with the family.

The bright, four bedroom home is located in the Sleepy Hollow area of Orinda and backs up to Briones Preserve, so there is great access to nearby walking trails. Additionally, there are plenty of sidewalks to take neighborhood strolls. The backyard is tiered with a paved patio, wooden deck, and stairs leading up to a spacious lawn. On one side of the home is an open space area, so the views from the windows and the yard are absolutely lovely. Inside, there is a large playroom, and a contemporary kitchen with a delightful window nook. The boys share a bedroom, and baby has her own room. Mom works from home and dad is in and out depending on the day. They have dedicated office spaces.

A vehicle will be provided for use on the job. This family has one senior dog.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on all vaccinations, including COVID-19.

Experienced & Loving Nanny for 4-Month Old

Schedule

  • 9 AM-5 PM Monday-Friday
  • 45 hours, including 5 hours of overtime pay, per week

Are you an experienced nanny with a special place in your heart for infants? This position may be just what you’ve been looking for! A kind and caring tight-knit family in Fremont is seeking full time care of their 4 month old son. Baby is simply delightful! Calm and easy-going, curious and adorable, he is a great eater and sleeper who is rarely fussy. If his needs are anticipated and met, he flows through his days as happy as can be.

A caregiving approach focused on respect for children is a must. Emphasis on fostering communication and language, as well as social, cognitive, and physical development will be the best fit for this family. They are enthusiastic about the Montessori method, so fostering exploration and independence is expected.

Baby sleeps two hours at a stretch, and is bottle fed with formula. His routine and schedule will evolve, and nanny and parents will work collaboratively to find a rhythm that is best for baby. Duties for this position are completely focused on baby’s needs, with no household duties expected. House cleaners do a deep clean, as well as family laundry weekly. Nanny should expect to do some laundry for baby if his sheets are soiled or he spits up. Once he starts solids, nanny should be open to making homemade food for him.

Nanny is encouraged to take baby on neighborhood walks to explore the outdoors and socialize. There is a lovely park with a paved walking path, playground and expansive fields of grass literally next door! Once trust is built and baby is a bit older, the family will provide a car for nanny to take baby on further away outings. There is a library and a wonderful park with a lake that is about a mile from the home. 

Baby has a 2.5 year old brother who is in Montessori school from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, so nanny will not have any responsibilities for big brother except during school breaks. Brother is such a sweet boy who loves people and has a happy and easy-going disposition. 

The ranch-style home is all one level, with a dedicated play area in the living room. Currently, baby sleeps in the guest room, but once he is sleeping through the night he will share a room with big brother. Mom works from home and will conduct business in a dedicated office three days per week. Dad works from home two days per week. The home has a wonderful yard with a patio and an outdoor eating area, as well as plenty of lawn space.

Please note that this family has two indoor/outdoor cats. No pet care is required.

This family requires that nanny is up to date COVID-19 vaccinations.

Experienced, Child-Led Nanny for 8-Month Old Baby & Big Brother

Schedule

  • 6:45 AM-3:45 PM Monday-Friday
  • 45 hours, including 5 hours of overtime pay, per week

This delightful and welcoming family of four is seeking an experienced, safety-oriented, and energetic nanny to care for two active children. Mom and dad describe their baby boy as ‘on the go’ and likely to walk early. He’s in the beginning stages of signing, so a nanny who can support with baby signing would be a wonderful addition to the family. Big brother is intellectually gifted, and already starting to read at not quite reaching 4 years old! Nanny should be excited to follow the lead of the children in regards to their interests and be truly invested in nurturing their learning and development. The ideal candidate has the physical stamina to care for two children at different developmental stages for 9 hours per day, and has a keen understanding of the various stages of development.

Baby is currently breastfed, but takes expressed milk and formula from bottles easily. He has started on purees and some finger foods, and just got his first tooth! He has a flexible routine that mom and dad are not looking to change, with naps and feedings during typical time frames, but no set times. He has a social personality and a calm nature, loves to crawl and play with toys, but is also content to observe the world around him, especially when watching his big brother!

Big brother is nearly 4 years old, and attends a co-op preschool program very part time, and has a movement class two days per week. Mom, dad or grandma will handle all drop offs and pick ups and attend all classes with him. He’ll begin TK in the fall. Big brother has a speech delay that is being addressed.

Attentive, Loving, & Collaborative Nanny for 2-Year Old Boy

Base Schedule

  • Candidate’s choice of Option A or Option B hours.

Option A:

  • 7:30 AM-6 PM Monday-Thursday
  • 6 hours overtime pay per week
  • 42 total hours per week

Option B:

  • 7:30 AM-6 PM Monday-Friday
  • 12.5 hours overtime pay per week
  • 52.5 total hours per week

Additional Hours

  • Flexibility to stay as late as 7 PM one night per month required

This loving, tight-knit family is looking for an experienced, nurturing, and gentle temporary nanny for their very active 2-year old son. His favorite activities are running and climbing, playing with cars and trucks, imaginary play (he loves pretending to be a dog or cat!), and going for car rides and stroller walks. A friendly demeanor, mellow personality, and the ability to keep up with a toddler with advanced gross motor skills are important qualities for nanny to possess. This position is expected to last approximately 4 months.

This family has a very child-led caregiving style, but also prioritizes structure and routine. Little one naps daily for 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours and has a consistent eating and playtime schedule. Mom and dad value RIE methodology and fostering little one’s autonomy by letting him choose the activities he wants to explore and participate in for playtime. A familiarity with RIE practices is preferred, but this family is also happy to consider candidates who are willing to learn about RIE and they will pay for nanny’s professional development in this area and/or offer reading materials. Like most toddlers, this little one can have some big emotions that he doesn’t fully understand how to appropriately express. Patience and empathy are key, as he responds best to having his feelings acknowledged, and being talked through those big emotions respectfully and calmly. Along with his energetic and physically advanced nature, he can be impulsive, which may put him in some tricky situations. This family is looking for a nanny who is exceptionally watchful and safety-oriented.

No household duties are required, but nanny should be comfortable doing little one’s laundry during naptime. Mom and grandma prepare all of little one’s meals. It is imperative that nanny is completely comfortable being around the whole family–this is a multi-generational household and mom, dad, and grandma will be home throughout the day. Mom and dad are very involved and seek a nanny who is content to collaborate and strategize with them. No driving is required on the job, as mom or dad will drive and join for most outings. Nanny should be experienced enough to take the lead without a need for a lot of guidance, but should also be comfortable following instructions and being a team player. Mom and dad are personable and open to feedback. They strongly value a high level of communication and transparency. Nanny should also have a track record of being dependable and very punctual. 

This family has two cats and a dog, so candidates must be comfortable with pets. Nanny will not have any pet care duties, and for the most part, the pets will be gated away from the main living areas. Little one absolutely loves the dog, but he can be rough when playing with the pets, so nanny should be comfortable supervising those interactions and gently correcting rough play or redirecting. 

The Los Altos home is on one level with a spacious family room with high ceilings. The family room is fully equipped for play with toys, art supplies, a child-sized table and chairs, and bean bag chair. Off of the contemporary kitchen is a small yard with a lawn and a covered patio. Both parents have a home office, and little one has his own bedroom. This family will return to their second home in another state in the spring, with the expectation that this position will end in April. 

This family requires that nanny is up to date on vaccinations, including COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.

Enthusiastic & Proactive Family Assistant for Family of 4

Base Schedule

  • Candidate’s choice of Option A or Option B hours.
  • Please note that family assistants who spend more than 20% of their work hours on household (non-childcare) duties are legally required to take a 30-minute unpaid meal/rest period, which is built into the schedule.

Option A (preferred):

  • 10:30 AM-6 PM Monday-Friday
  • 35 paid hours per week

Option B:

  • 9:30 AM-6 PM Monday-Friday
  • 40 paid hours per week

Every member of this close-knit family of four wears their heart on their sleeve! Warm, loving, and kind, they are looking for a family assistant with similar sensibilities to be part of their family team. Candidates should have an “all hands on deck” approach and be intuitive and proactive about identifying needs and tackling any task that will help keep the household running smoothly. This family values professionalism and experience but is also seeking a family assistant whose heart is truly in the job and possesses a fun, friendly demeanor. 

Family assistant will start their day tackling household tasks while both children are in full-day school. Duties include organizing, whole family laundry, errands and grocery shopping, and cooking for the children and packaging leftovers for the parents. Dedicated house cleaners come every two weeks to take care of deep cleaning, but family assistant will also be responsible for day-to-day tidying of the home, including kitchen tasks like loading and unloading the dishwasher and hand-washing dishes as needed, keeping kitchen surfaces clean and sanitary, occasionally wiping down the refrigerator, and sweeping. 

Little brother is 4 and big sister is 10. Family assistant will pick the children up from school each day and should be comfortable using their own vehicle on the job with mileage reimbursement. Little brother’s preschool program ends at 3 PM and big sister’s school day ends at 3:20 PM. After school, family assistant’s focus will be childcare, and this family is looking for candidates who genuinely love working with children and who will truly teach, engage, and spend quality time with the kids. Dad describes both children as “good humored” and “wonderful beings to be around.” Little brother is sweet and charming and loves basketball, trains, and books. He’s the kind of kid who won’t let you leave without a hug. Big sister is a true creative spirit. She loves gardening, dance, poetry, and art. Both kids are very interested in music and big sister is learning to play piano. They also thoroughly enjoy being outdoors as often as possible. 

Mom and dad are busy tech executives. Mom’s office is in the home and dad’s office is in a detached, converted garage at the home. They are located in a bright, spacious, and beautifully remodeled home in the Berkeley Hills, where there are utterly amazing views all the way across the Bay from many of the windows. The living areas and kitchen are on the main floor, a second living area with a TV and large sectional is located at the basement level alongside mom’s office, and the bedrooms are on the upper level. There is also a central, paved courtyard, as well as a tiered backyard with a large grassy area for play.

Vaccines are not required. This family has no pets.

Part-Time Nanny for Intellectual Family of 4

Base Schedule

  • 4 PM-8 PM Monday-Friday
  • 12 PM-6 PM Saturdays & Sundays preferred, as often as possible
  • 20-32 hours per week

This polite, educated family is seeking a part-time nanny for their two daughters, a 19-month old and an adopted 1-year old. Both parents will be present for nearly all of the time in which nanny is working. A full-time nanny already provides daytime care so the evening and weekend support will be a joint effort between part-time nanny, mom, and dad. Mom and dad may utilize some of the time that nanny is present to spend one-on-one time with each daughter. Nanny will also be responsible for helping out with the bedtime routine, including baths, during the week–little sister goes to bed at 7:30 PM each night and big sister goes to bed at 8 PM each night. 

At age 2, big sister will begin preschool and be enrolled in some afterschool and weekend activities. Nanny may be expected to do some drop-offs and/or pick-ups and participate in the activities when the time comes. The children also go to the park at 4 PM daily, a 3-minute drive from the home. A vehicle will be provided for use on the job. Mom and/or dad will join for park visits 3-4 times per week, so nanny should be comfortable interacting and engaging with the whole family.

Candidates with a background or genuine interest in early childhood education and child development are certain to stand out to this cultured family. It is of utmost importance to these parents that their children are provided with the best foundation for cognitive, speech and language, and motor skill growth and development. A friendly, enthusiastic personality and a mindful, interactive caregiving style will align best with this family’s own childcare philosophies. This family also truly values exposing their children to different cultures, and especially languages. Both parents speak English, but mom also speaks Mandarin and Spanish, and uses Mandarin when talking to the babies. They want to raise their children to be multilingual, and though a second language is not a requirement, a Spanish-bilingual nanny would be a bonus!

This is primarily a child-focused position with child-related household duties, including tidying up after the children and washing their laundry. Nanny should also be comfortable washing household linens (sheets, towels) and helping with light after-dinner tidying as needed. This family is willing to work with candidates to find a schedule that works well for both parties. Weekend coverage is strongly desired and the ideal candidate is open to at least one weekend day a week. However, the family is willing to consider candidates who are only available for weekday evenings and occasional weekends.

Dad is a business owner and primarily works from home in a separate office, but does also take meetings outside of the home periodically. Mom works part-time, from home. She is a big animal lover and advocate, and this family does have two gentle dogs–a 2-year old Goldendoodle and a 13-year old toy poodle. Nanny should be comfortable with dogs, but pet care is not required, and the dogs spend the majority of their day outdoors on the shaded patio, or indoors napping. 

Their spacious and modern, inviting home is located in South Berkeley, bordering the Oakland Hills. It’s full of enormous windows with amazing views of the hills and the Golden Gate Bridge and patio access from every level. The main floor is very open, with a big kitchen, living area with a beautiful piano and cello and a play area for the children, and a library that doubles as dad’s office. The upper level of the home is where all of the bedrooms are located, including the girls’ bedrooms. On the lower level of the home, there is another living area with a kitchenette and more play space for the babies, a laundry room, and guest bedroom. There are two grassy areas in the yard, which is full of fruit trees and raised garden beds, and there are multiple fenced patios. There is also a big, enclosed and paved driveway perfect for scooters and bicycles as the girls grow!

This family requires that nanny is up to date on vaccinations, including COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.

This lovely family of 3 recently relocated to San Francisco from the East Coast and is seeking a proactive, dedicated, and collaborative career nanny to join their family team long-term. Candidates should have at least 10 years of professional nanny experience and be physically capable of keeping up with and caring for this self-assured, active, and absolutely delightful 15 month old little girl. 

This toddler is on a great routine and is a fabulous eater and sleeper! She eats what her parents eat and, because these parents have never kept a quiet home during rest periods, she sleeps soundly, even with everyday life happening around her. She recently began walking and she loves dancing, music, and being social. She enjoys books but her focus is most easily kept by books that are interactive or sensory in nature. Outings to the library, indoor playspaces, and parks like Alta Plaza, Moscone Park, Tunnel Top Park, and the Presidio, which are all within walking distance, are encouraged. She also attends music class regularly. It is important that nanny is able to navigate walking the hills in the area, as these parents want the toddler to get out of the home for regular outings and outdoor play and have many opportunities to explore the world around her daily! The ideal candidate is familiar with the many age-appropriate Bay Area activities and attractions.

The family has a team of house cleaners that come twice weekly to do any and all deep cleaning. Modeling good tidying and organizing habits for the toddler and providing an environment in which independence surrounding life skills is fostered is of the utmost importance to this family. Nanny should narrate the day-to-day activities when the child is present, and encourage the child to participate as much as is age-appropriate.

Currently, this sweet one year old is being cared for by her grandmother who has a background in early childhood education and who once was a daycare owner herself! Grandma is living with the family while providing care, but once nanny is settled in, she will relocate. This family would love to find a candidate who is knowledgeable about child development, uses positive discipline techniques, and has a calm and easy-going demeanor. Mom and grandma both speak a mix of Mandarin and English to the child and would prefer for nanny to be bilingual in English and either Mandarin or Spanish. They are also looking for a nanny who is eager to commit to a very long-term role, ideally five or more years, to provide continuity of care for their little one and because they plan to have another baby within the next two years.  

When this toddler begins school, nanny should be comfortable taking on family assistant/light household duties during school hours, only when childcare is not required. Once a second child is born, nanny will resume child-focused work and not be expected to perform any household duties, until the second child also begins school. Family assistant experience is preferred, but not required. During the toddler’s current 2-3 hour nap time, nanny can tackle child-related duties such as the child’s laundry, tidying her bedroom and playroom, washing her dishes, organizing her closet, tracking inventory and restocking her supplies daily, and changing her diaper pail regularly. Nanny is also encouraged to take a break during baby’s nap time once daily duties are completed. Please note that this family has a strict no cell phone use policy at the home, except for breaks, or on outings, unless cell phone use is specifically for work-related purposes.

There are three wonderful pets in the home: one cat and two Cavalier King Charles dogs. One dog is a senior who mostly sleeps throughout the day. The other dog and the cat are super sweet and friendly. Nanny should be comfortable with pets and willing to let the dogs outside occasionally for potty breaks. No other pet-related duties are required. 

Nanny should have a collaborative approach while recognizing when it’s appropriate to ask for support or bring ideas to the table and when it’s better to take the lead or follow the parents’ lead. This family is looking for someone who is solution-oriented and has plenty of experience and knowledge to draw from. There will be times in which both parents will be in the home during the day and nanny should be comfortable minimizing interruptions to the parents while they are working. Mom is a physician and has a variable, hybrid schedule. She has a direct but friendly personality. Dad works fully from home on East Coast hours as a lawyer and tends to be more introverted.

A vehicle will be provided for use on the job most times, but nanny should have a vehicle they can use on the job as needed with mileage reimbursement. A residential parking permit is available for street parking. Nanny is also welcome to use public transportation with the child.

The spacious 7,000-square foot, light-filled home has an elevator and is situated on four levels. The bedrooms, including the nursery, a future “big girl” bedroom, and the primary suite, and a laundry room, are located on the third floor of the home. The entry level is on the second floor and holds the main living spaces: the gorgeous eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, living room, and dad’s office. The playroom is located on the lower level of the home along with an additional laundry room, a guest room, and the garage. The fourth floor houses mom’s study and a sun room. Each level has sweeping views of the Bay!

This family requires that nanny is up to date on vaccinations, including flu and COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.

Confident, Interactive Nanny for Happy 8-Month Old

Base Schedule

  • Monday-Friday
  • 9 AM-5 PM
  • 40 hours per week

After several years in Canada, this loving, conscientious family of four is returning to the Bay Area and is seeking a nanny to primarily care for 8-month old little brother. He is a highly engaged, cheerful, and active baby who loves books, music, swinging and sitting in the grass at the park, and playing with his big sister. He’s very observant and also thoroughly enjoys walks in the stroller or carrier so he can scope out his surroundings–he gets very excited when he spots trucks! He’s overall quite happy and easy-going. He is very comfortable with new people and he’s a great eater and sleeper. He currently takes solids and is breastfed or takes breastmilk from a bottle, but formula will also be introduced soon. He naps three times per day in his own crib wearing a sleep sack, with a sound machine on. He will likely drop to two naps soon.

Big sister is 3 years old and attends full-day Montessori preschool. She only requires occasional nanny care, for example, on days in which the preschool is closed. Mom and dad handle preschool drop-offs and pick-ups. She’s incredibly outgoing and truly enjoys being the center of attention! She loves dancing and music. Mom describes her as sweet, brilliant, and energetic, with the occasional tendency to push boundaries, like most 3-year olds. She thrives in a Montessori environment where her independence is fostered and positive discipline techniques like redirection and talking it out are utilized. 

Of utmost importance to this family is finding a nanny who is truly interactive and enthusiastic about engaging with the children. The ideal candidate is happy to get down on the floor with baby, is familiar with or adept at finding the various kid-friendly attractions and destinations around the area, is creative in coming up with age-appropriate activities that support baby’s growth and development, and is sociable and willing to interact with other nannies or parents in the community to allow baby the opportunity to meet children his age. This family really values creative pursuits and literacy and expects the children to have ample opportunities to develop early language, reading, and fine motor skills, without the use of screens. Also paramount is a candidate who continues to follow CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19 and other communicable illnesses. Attention to health and safety, as well as reliability and punctuality, are key traits candidates should possess. 

Mom is personable and upbeat, while dad is a bit more introverted. Dad is an tech researcher working from home 2-3 days per week and outside of the home 2-3 days per week. His home office is in a converted, detached garage, and he has a very focused work style, so he is unlikely to be in and out of the house when he works from home. Mom is an archivist and, due to the move, will not be working at the start of the position. She plans to return to work eventually, likely working from home some days as well as outside of the home, but will take her time to find a position that is the right fit for her. Candidates should be comfortable with mom being present, but, while she will be home throughout the day and may pop in and out to interact with baby and nanny, this family is looking for an experienced nanny who is completely confident and comfortable taking charge. 

This position is child-focused and only household duties pertaining to the children are required. Nanny will be expected to do both children’s laundry. Nanny should also be comfortable using their own vehicle on the job, with mileage reimbursement, though the family lives in a highly walkable area so minimal driving is required. Driveway parking will be available, and a BART station is nearby if nanny prefers to use public transportation from time to time. This family has no pets.

The Rockridge home is located within walking distance of Broadway and Piedmont Avenue shops, cafes, and restaurants. It is on two levels and opens up to an entryway leading directly to the stairs. Off one side of the entryway is a sitting/living room that opens up to the front deck. Off the other side is a small built-in desk and storage nook leading to the modern, spacious eat-in kitchen with patio doors to the backyard. Off of the kitchen is a family room with built-in bookshelves. Three bedrooms and a laundry room are located on the upper level of the home. In the backyard, there is a deck, a brick area for seating, and a small lawn. Dad’s office is located in the converted, detached garage.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on vaccinations, including COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.

CLOSED Job #635

Pay: $35-40 per hour, DOE

Friendly & Proactive Family Assistant for Two Children

Base Schedule

  • Monday-Friday
  • 11 AM-5:30 or 6 PM preferred
  • Flexible start time: 10 AM-11 AM, candidate’s choice
  • Flexible end time: 5:30 PM-6:30 PM, candidate’s choice
  • 30-40 paid hours per week
  • Please note that family assistants who spend more than 20% of their work hours on household (non-childcare) duties are legally required to take a 30-minute unpaid meal/rest period, which is built into the schedule.

This sweet and close-knit family is seeking a family assistant for care of an energetic 5-year old boy and an outgoing 3 ½-year old girl. A new baby is due in October, but mom will take the lead on baby care, so experience with newborns and infants is not required. Big brother is chatty, active, silly, and curious. He loves to explore and be outdoors often and he also enjoys creative activities like art. Little sister is friendly, easy-going, and independent, but enjoys following big brother’s lead. She loves Frog & Toad books, playing outside, and coloring. Big brother will be starting first grade in the fall and little sister goes to morning daycare. The ideal candidate is patient, loving, and logical, and has experience with preschool and early elementary-aged children. Big brother can sometimes need extra support processing his big feelings. He responds best when boundaries and expectations are firm and clear, and are also explained to him so he understands the reasons behind them. 

On a typical day, family assistant will arrive to tackle some household duties 1-2 hours prior to little sister’s daycare pickup at noon. After picking little sister up and giving her lunch, an unpaid, 30-minute meal/rest period can be taken on- or offsite. After the break, family assistant can play with little sister or finish any outstanding household duties before picking up big brother at 1:40 PM. Once both children are home from school, it’s time for learning activities and play. It is important to this family that the children have 30-45 minutes of educational enrichment each afternoon, and there is a shelf full of books and supplies to support this time. Following learning activities is naptime. Little sister still naps daily for up to two hours and big brother naps for around an hour most days. Some weekdays, family assistant will take the children for extracurricular activities after naptime. A vehicle is provided for use on the job. Big brother currently participates in basketball and art classes and little sister takes dance classes. They may both eventually have martial arts, and they also both take swimming lessons. On days in which there are no extracurricular activities, family assistant will take the children to a local playground so they can get some energy out in the late afternoon/early evening before dinner.

Household duties include preparing meals for the children, ingredient preparation (chopping vegetables, marinating, etc.) for the family, folding and putting away laundry, light housekeeping, and generally pitching in wherever there is a need to keep the home running smoothly. While not required, this family would appreciate a candidate who is also willing to prepare very simple family dinners occasionally. Family assistant should be comfortable with and experienced enough to proactively identify needs and manage household chores. 

This family eats together every evening around 6-6:30 PM and prioritizes having plenty of family time after dinner, so the ideal schedule is 11 AM-5:30 or 6 PM. However, mom is a stay-at-home parent and is very flexible with the schedule. Family assistant can choose any start time between 10 and 11 AM and end time between 5:30 and 6:30 PM. Mom will also be available to team up with family assistant for afternoon childcare duties if needed. Dad is an executive in the tech industry and works outside of the home four days per week. He works from home on Fridays. He travels, on average, once per month for 2-3 days at a time, but sometimes, up to 5 days at a time. Both parents are warm, kind, humble, and eager to be outstanding employers.

The home is bright, cozy, and contemporary. On the lower level is the kitchen right off of a dining area that opens up to a spacious living room, where the children like to play. The dining area doubles as the children’s learning space and also contains a play kitchen for imaginative play. There is a sliding door from the dining area to the yard, where there’s an outdoor kitchen and a small open area with a playhouse. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms–the main bedroom, the children’s shared bedroom, and a third room that serves as a guest room, playroom, and dad’s office when he’s working from home. Big brother’s school is within walking distance of the home and the school playground is open to the public after school hours. The neighborhood is also in close proximity to the Iron Horse Trail for walking and biking.

This family requires that family assistant is up to date on vaccinations, including COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.
