Precious 3-Month Old Girl for Tidy, Safety-Conscious Career Nanny

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Thursday
  • 8 AM-4 PM
  • 32 hours per week

These pleasant first-time parents are seeking a very experienced, conscientious, and trustworthy nanny for their adorable 3-month old baby girl. Baby has a calm, curious temperament, and she absolutely loves being held and engaging with those around her. If you’re looking for a job with a total snuggle-bug, this position is for you!

Baby is formula-fed and currently eats and sleeps on-demand. This family will appreciate a nanny who has ideas and experience surrounding implementing a daily routine and getting baby into a more consistent nap and feeding schedule. Baby has a tendency to spit up heavily, though she is a “happy spitter,” and doesn’t seem to be especially disrupted by this. Mom and dad really prioritize keeping baby dry and comfortable, and are looking for a nanny who is proactive and intuitive about cleanliness and hygiene, changing baby’s clothes and bibs as they become damp or soiled, and bathing her whenever there is a need.

When baby is awake, she enjoys being read and sung to–she already tries to mimic singing and talking! She is not a big fan of tummy-time, so tips and tricks to make this activity a success will be appreciated! Nanny should be creative with finding ways to support baby’s development–she is an infant who thrives with a high level of interaction, so an upbeat, encouraging personality and eagerness to be present and attentive are key qualities in the ideal candidate. Another important quality for nanny to possess is a high level of communication. Nanny should be comfortable both taking the lead and following the parents’ lead when it’s requested, as well as leaving plenty of room for collaboration. 

This position is child-focused, with nanny expected to tidy up after baby, wash and sanitize bottles and prepare formula (and solid food meals, when the time comes), and do baby’s laundry. Mom and dad are quite organized and keep a very neat home. A nanny who has similar sense of fastidiousness will fit most seamlessly into this role. They are not looking for a nanny to drive with baby at this time, but getting out and about on walks around the neighborhood is encouraged. They live near a park with a large field, and there are two playgrounds very nearby. This family is also looking for someone who is very mindful of safety and best practices as they pertain to childcare as well as personal security. 

Mom is an Oakland-native and works in finance, as well as serving as a college student mentor. Dad is originally from Nigeria and speaks Gbo and English fluently. He is in engineering, and works Monday through Thursday.On Fridays, he dedicates his time to an entrepreneurial project. Both parents have incredibly busy schedules and demanding jobs.

Given that these parents have little time to dedicate to meal planning and preparation, a nanny who enjoys cooking, and is open to preparing lunch or dinner for them once a week is desired (not required). They are happy to provide nanny with recipes and ingredients, or allow nanny to be creative and take the lead on planning and shopping (online) for meals.

Their three-level Hayward townhome is located in the Burbank area, and is a newer build within a planned community. At street level is the garage and dad’s office, with the second level of the home serving as the main living area. There, you will find an open floor plan kitchen and living room, as well as mom’s office. The third level of the home is where the bedrooms are located, each with its own private bathroom. 

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

Spanish Speaking Nanny-Family Assistant for Energetic 3-Year Old

Base Schedule:

  • Monday, 2 PM-7 PM
  • Tuesday, 8 AM-5 PM
  • Wednesday, 2 PM-7 PM
  • Thursday, 8 AM-5 PM
  • Friday, 2 PM-7 PM
  • 33 hours, including 2 hours of overtime pay, per week

Additional Hours:

  • International travel & occasional overnights

This family of three is seeking a warm, playful, patient Spanish-speaking nanny-family assistant to care for their 3-year old son, as well as help mom with day-to-day errands and household duties. This toddler is very active, energetic, and talkative, and needs a nanny who is going to keep up with him! He loves riding his bike, reading, cars and trucks, building with Legos, getting his hands dirty in the home garden, and going to the park to run around. He’s currently potty-training, so supporting potty-training will be important. He goes to preschool 5 days per week from 8:30 AM-2:30 PM, so nanny should be comfortable with school drop-offs and pick-ups.

Little one is very attached to mom and a bit slower to warm to new people, so it is likely to take him some time to adjust to a new nanny. Being gentle, encouraging, and enthusiastic are qualities which will give nanny a leg up in building a trusting relationship with him. Like many 3-year olds, he can also be strong-willed, and mom and dad are keen on fostering his independence, so nanny should have an approach which allows him a sense of control and autonomy at an appropriate level for his age and developmental stage. A background in or understanding of some basic Montessori methodologies will be useful in this position. He is responsive to consistency and natural consequences (eg. if he doesn’t put his toys away, he can’t move on to the next activity until he cleans up). Mom and dad also value allowing him growth opportunities through things like participating in real cooking and cleaning with safe materials and supervision, rather than playing with pretend kitchens or cleaning toys. 

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are more child-focused, as little one will be home from school for the duration of nanny’s shift. On those days, nanny will pick him up from school and spend the remainder of the afternoon letting him get his energy out outdoors, at the park, in the yard, or on walks or bike rides around the neighborhood. In the evening, around 5 PM, he has dinner, and then nanny can play and read indoors with him until it’s time to start the bedtime routine. Nanny should be comfortable helping with bathtime. 

Tuesdays and Thursdays are days which include more family assistant work. While little one is at school, there will be plenty of time for nanny to run errands and grocery shop, help with home organization, tidy up little one’s meal and play areas, assist with simple meal preparation and packing lunches, family laundry, and take the very well-behaved dogs (2 chihuahuas) for walks. On these days, nanny will be responsible for preschool drop-off and pick-up. Nanny can choose whether to use the vehicle provided, or drive their own vehicle and be reimbursed for mileage.

Mom is looking for a family assistant to partner with – someone who is a true team player. She does not currently work, though she will spend time outside of the home volunteering and overseeing the remodel of their new home. Dad is in tech and works from home in a detached home office space. Mom and dad are both bilingual: mom is a native Spanish speaker and dad speaks French. They require a candidate who is also fluent in Spanish, and will be sending little one to a French immersion school in the future, so that he grows up trilingual. 

This family is not currently living in their permanent home, as it is undergoing a significant remodel for the next 8-12 months. Their temporary home, however, is on the same street as their permanent home. It’s on two levels, with the main level holding the communal area and kitchen, and the bedrooms located on the lower level. The permanent home will be much larger, on three levels, with a dedicated playroom and a large backyard with outdoor kitchen, patio, and grassy area. Both homes are less than a 10 minute walk from Lake Temescal Park.

Nanny should also be comfortable with grandma being around, as she lives very nearby and is often at the home. There will also be some days spent at grandma’s house. 

This family strongly prefers a candidate who is comfortable traveling internationally, as mom typically takes little one for a 2-3 week summer trip to Mexico annually. They are also looking for someone who is willing to provide overnight care occasionally, when they wish to spend a night away from home.

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

Gentle, Compassionate Nanny for Sweet Preschooler & Newborn

Base Schedule:
August-November 2022

  • Monday-Friday
  • 8 AM-4 PM
  • 40 hours per week

After November 2022

  • Monday: 8:30 AM-3:30 PM
  • Tuesday-Thursday: 9 AM-6 PM
  • Friday: 8:30 AM-3:30 PM
  • 41 hours, including one hour of overtime pay, per week

These kind and down-to-earth parents have a very sweet, reserved 3 ½ year old daughter and a baby boy on the way, due in late July. They are seeking a nanny for both children, and prefer someone who is, ideally, familiar with the balancing act of caring for two children of differing development stages at the same time.

Big sister is delightful! She is on the shy side, and is very soft-spoken, but she is not standoffish or slow-to-warm. She’s easily drawn out of her shell with engagement in her interests. She loves books, puzzles, MagnaTiles, and cars! She also has an exceptional attention span and is perfectly content to look at books, trace letters in her workbooks, and do puzzles independently for long periods of time. Because she has a more timid personality, she is most likely to thrive and connect with a nanny with a very gentle and warm approach. It will be very important for nanny to understand that the adjustment to a new sibling is a big deal for little ones, and may come with some challenges, so patience and empathy will be key!

Baby will be brand new when nanny starts, so newborn experience is a requirement. For the first few months of the position, mom and dad will both be home, but mom intends to spend maternity leave focusing on postpartum recovery and nursing. Nanny and dad will work together to take the lead on all other aspects of childcare. While these parents are looking for someone who is open to feedback and collaboration, they are equally open to ideas and feedback from nanny! They would consider a nanny who can offer tips and words of wisdom, especially surrounding the adjustment to a second child, and how to organize and set up their home to create an optimal childcare environment.

Both parents are software engineer managers, and have very demanding careers. Dad will return to work in September and mom will return to work in November, at which point nanny’s schedule will change to accommodate their work schedules. It is also important to note that, because of their careers, they have found that structure and routine are critical to the family’s wellbeing. In order to keep a consistent schedule and make sure everyone gets plenty of sleep, they sleep-trained big sister as an infant, and it is very likely that new baby will undergo sleep-training when it’s appropriate as well. Nanny should be supportive of and on-board with sleep-training methodologies.

Their casual and cozy Livermore home is on two levels, with the living areas on the main floor and the four bedrooms upstairs. One of those bedrooms has been converted into a home office for dad, and mom works from the primary bedroom. Baby will spend the first 6 months or so room-sharing with mom and dad, but there will be a bassinet in the living room, and baby’s nursery is in the works. Big sister has her own room, and the living area doubles as a playspace, with a small indoor slide and a table for coloring and working on workbooks. There is a cute backyard, with a cement patio with seating and shade from a gazebo, as well as a turf “grassy” area, and a water table and mini trampoline for play. 

This is a child-focused position, requiring only clean-up after the kids throughout the day and meal prep and laundry for the kids. A vehicle will be provided for use on the job. This family has no pets.

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

Mindful Infant Expert to Partner with Single First-Time Mom

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Friday
  • 10 AM-6 PM
  • 40 hours per week

This single mom is seeking a highly experienced and knowledgeable baby nanny to partner with in the care of her 3-month old, as well as help her keep up on day-to-day household needs. Baby has an easy-going temperament, but the ideal candidate will have experience with infant reflux. He is exclusively breastfed, and currently, he eats and sleeps on demand. It’s very important to mom that nanny have a gentle and respectful approach to infant care. Candidates should be mindful of the stages of development and attentive and responsive to baby’s cues. 

Mom still wants to spend ample time reading to baby, taking him on daily walks, and nursing him. She is an artist and a writer, and has a flexible schedule. She plans to spend two days per week, around 4 hours each day, at her studio, and would bring nanny with her so that baby does not have to take a bottle while she’s working. Nanny will also be responsible for baby while mom writes or tidies at home. Eventually, once trust is built and baby is a bit older, mom may start going to the studio or running extended errands by herself, and on those occasions, she will leave expressed milk for nanny to give baby bottles. 

While mom is spending time with baby, nanny should be comfortable pitching in with household duties including laundry, dishes, and general tidying. Until this point, mom has worked with doulas and a night nanny, so the idea is that the dynamic will be similar with a long-term person. A house cleaner comes once a week to tackle deep cleaning, and it’s just mom and baby in the home, so while household duties are required, they should be very light. Most importantly, she is looking for someone who wants to help and support both baby and her as she adjusts to this first year of motherhood!

Since this is a position in which nanny will be working alongside mom regularly, compatibility is important! She has a direct and somewhat serious personality, so the perfect candidate is someone who is not passive. A confident, but also warm, supportive, and empathetic nanny will be well suited for this position!

Currently, this family lives in the Potrero Hill neighborhood in San Francisco, in a very bright and modern two bedroom apartment. Baby’s sleep space is in the main bedroom with mom, and the second bedroom contains a tummy time area and diaper station. There are also two bathrooms in the home, and in-unit stackable washer and dryer. Every window looks out onto a lovely courtyard, and there are two separate courtyards on multiple levels. One has a grassy area, and the other has furniture and a sun canopy.

*It is very important to note that mom is actively searching for a home to purchase in the East Bay, so a move is imminent. Candidates should be prepared to start the position in San Francisco, but eventually work in Oakland, Piedmont, or Kensington.

It is required that nanny be up to date on all vaccinations, including COVID-19, TDaP, MMR, and annual flu shot. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required.

Friendly, Honest Nanny-Family Assistant for Delightful Family of 3

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Friday
  • 8 AM-6 PM
  • 50 hours, including 10 hours of overtime pay, per week

Additional Hours:

  • 1-2 date nights per month, with advance notice
  • Some travel, domestic & rare international

These energetic, but laid-back first-time parents are looking for a nanny-family assistant who is eager to truly become part of a team. Having an easy-going personality runs in the family! Baby is 9 months old, and is exceptionally calm and amiable, happy, and silly. He’s beginning to babble tons, and he’s always smiling! He absolutely loves being outside, so walks to local parks and along the bayside walking path right next to the home are a daily “must.” Baby is sitting up on his own and beginning to scoot, working his way towards crawling. He enjoys playing with his toys on the floor and interacting with the family dogs.

Baby takes formula bottles and is still working on getting comfortable with solids. Mom and dad are using baby-led weaning techniques to try to introduce new foods in a positive, low-pressure way. He naps twice a day, and is rocked to sleep after a bottle, then down in his crib for sleep. Rigid structure is not something that this family desires, but they value consistency and routine, so it is important that nanny is mindful of naptime and familiar with reading and following developmental cues as baby grows and the daily routine needs to be modified. Mom and dad describe their parenting style and values as being more traditional; rather than following specific methodology, they use what works best for baby and for them.

Mom is building a social media business, and works part-time from home. Family assistant must be comfortable working alongside mom throughout the day. She is very outgoing, upbeat, and talkative. She is looking for a family assistant who not only connects with baby, but connects with her as well. Candidates who are honest, supportive, thoughtful, and have a great sense of humor are sure to hit it off with mom. Dad is very kind and also quite laid-back, but busy. He is a skilled trade contractor who works long hours outside of the home, and also has weekly on-call hours. Generally he’s home in the evenings for dinner, and both parents enjoy cooking, so while baby food preparation and “sous chef”-style meal prep is desired, cooking is not a requirement. 

Most important is the flexibility and willingness to adapt to whatever each day brings. Part of mom’s business involves cleaning and homemaking, so the home is already quite neat and organized. However, family assistant should have an “all hands on deck” attitude, and be ready to pitch in with basic day-to-day tidying, family laundry, errands, and light pet care. Being highly organized and detail-oriented is a requirement for this position. 

This family has two sweet dogs, an elderly small breed mix, and a very mellow German Shepherd, who are definitely part of the family, so family assistant must love dogs. 

Family assistant should be willing to travel with the family for up to a week at a time on rare occasions. Destinations will primarily be domestic, although in the distant future, they would like to return to visiting the Cayman Islands periodically. Pre-pandemic, it was a regular destination for them. When the family is traveling without family assistant, family assistant would be expected to work on projects at the home. The dogs will be boarded, so the goal is just to keep the house occupied some of the time during longer trips, and help with coordinating maintenance workers, bringing in the mail, and stocking the fridge as needed.

The bright, spacious Bay Farm home was tastefully remodeled a few years ago. Because the first floor is level with the bayside walking path, the home was built with the second level being the main living area. This way, the windows with blinds that remain open to let light in throughout the day are not face-to-face with path visitors. The bedrooms are at street level, and each room is spacious with a walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. Right now, baby’s room is small and simple, and mom uses one of the larger guest rooms as an office, but eventually that larger room will become baby’s room. On the main level, there is a beautiful kitchen that is completely open to the living area. There is also a formal dining room that is going to be converted into baby’s play room, and a laundry room with two washers and dryers. There is an exceptional, front row view of the bay from all of the main level windows, and there is an upper level deck and a narrow street level backyard with turf. 

This family is providing a vehicle for use on the job.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on TDaP, MMR, and annual flu shot.

Cheerful, Adaptable Career Nanny for Darling 5-Month Old

Base Schedule:

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

Additional Hours:

  • Flexibility to stay until 5:30 PM occasionally, with notice

These upbeat and confident first-time parents are seeking a very knowledgeable and experienced, yet warm and easy-going nanny for their baby girl, who will be 5 months old at the start of the position. She is quiet and observant, and has a relaxed temperament. This family has had the help of night nannies until recently, and baby has done very well with new caregivers. She is exclusively fed with breastmilk, but she easily transitions between taking a bottle and nursing. The position is child-focused, and includes only baby-related duties, including some baby laundry.

This family has an evidence-based parenting style, and is looking for a nanny who is up-to-date on best practices and well-versed in infant and toddler development. Baby’s normal routine is to eat every 3 hours throughout the day and nap in her crib 3-4 times a day, typically around 8 AM, 10:30 AM, 2 PM, and 5 PM. She’s not yet on a schedule, but she does have a fairly consistent eating and sleeping pattern right now. Nanny’s knowledge of infant development will be helpful in reading baby’s cues and collaborating with mom and dad to support the implementation of a schedule as she grows. Candidates should also be familiar with baby led weaning and very experienced introducing solids, as this is a milestone that baby will be reaching very soon. 

Of highest priority is finding a nanny who loves what they do! Candidates should be attentive and eager to truly engage with baby, without the use of screens. Mom and dad are looking for someone who is creative when it comes to age-appropriate activities, and who enjoys coming up with inventive and exciting ways to help baby reach developmental milestones. Right now, baby absolutely loves being read to, going for stroller walks around the neighborhood and exploring the backyard, and playing on the floor. She is not a fan of tummy time, so it would be great if nanny had suggestions for improving her tummy time experience!

The ideal candidate is a true team player, who is both experienced and adaptable. It is important that nanny has a great balance of being open-minded and cooperative, while also possessing the necessary background to be able to take the lead as needed and bring new ideas to the table. The goal is for nanny and family to connect and work together long-term, for multiple years.

Mom is in human resources, and works from home full-time, in a dedicated home office upstairs. In the future, on very rare occasions, she may need to work from her San Francisco office, and on those days, nanny would need to be available until 5:30 PM. Notice of these later evenings will be provided in advance. Dad is a physician and primarily works outside of the home, but 1 to 2 half-days per week, he takes calls from his home office on the basement level of the home. Both parents are very friendly and have great senses of humor!

The air-conditioned Piedmont home is spacious and bright, with lots of large windows! On the main level of the home, there’s a living room with a big, comfy sectional and a baby playmat on the floor and French doors leading to a formal dining room that passes through to a large eat-in kitchen. The laundry room is conveniently located right off of the kitchen. Upstairs are the bedrooms and mom’s office. Baby’s nursery is roomy, with plenty of floor space, a crib and changing station, and a chair for pre-nap bottles. The home is not yet baby-proofed, but the family has plans to fully baby-proof before baby is showing any signs of becoming mobile. There is a fantastic, expansive backyard with a shaded eating area and large lawn enclosed by a cement path, perfect for scooter rides in the future.

This family has no pets. A vehicle will be provided for use on the job most of the time, but nanny should be comfortable using their own vehicle with mileage reimbursement occasionally.

This family requires that nanny is up to date on all vaccinations, including TDaP, MMR, annual flu shot, and COVID-19. Following CDC recommendations regarding vaccine booster shots is also required. Nanny must be a non-smoker.

Knowledgeable Career Nanny for Alert, Observant 7-Month Old

  • Wednesday, 9:30 AM-1:30 PM
  • Thursday, 8:30 AM-5:30 PM

  • 35 hours per week

Additional Hours:

  • Flexibility to start at 8 AM or end at 6 PM as needed
  • Occasional date nights desired, but not required

$500 signing bonus! These warm and joyful first-time parents are looking for an experienced, knowledgeable nanny to care for their 7-month old son. Communication, collaboration, and an eagerness to take ownership of the role are important! This family’s ideal candidate is a true team player, comfortable following mom and dad’s lead, being attentive and mindful to baby’s cues and developmental stages, and providing mom and dad with new ideas, feedback, and guidance throughout baby’s growth and development.

Baby is curious and determined; he loves to be “in the action” and he is eager to meet developmental milestones, like learning to crawl. He’s already in the beginning stages of gaining independent mobility, sitting on his own, pushing up during floor time, and thoroughly enjoying any opportunity to “stand”. He loves all opportunities to explore, observe, and engage. There is plenty of space in his room and the living room for him to play with his toys and freely wiggle around the floor. There is also a plan to turn a large loft in the home into a dedicated playroom in the future. He is a big boy, so mom and dad often utilize the stroller, even in the house, to allow him to remain by their sides as they complete day-to-day tasks like tidying or making baby food. 

Mom and dad are looking for someone who has a robust background in infant care, who they can fully trust to support baby’s health, happiness, and development every day. He is already on a great sleeping and feeding schedule, eating every 3 hours and napping around 9 AM, 1 PM, and 4:30 PM. He has an effective sleep routine as well, with a dedicated pre-nap “calm down” period for reading, rocking, and singing, before putting him in his crib for sleep. Nanny should value structure and consistency, and not only follow baby’s current schedule, but also understand baby’s cues so that the schedule can be adapted according to his development (eg. dropping a nap when he’s ready).

Mom is from Italy and dad is from the east coast, and both parents are in tech, working at the same company. Currently, they work from home, but are ramping up to return to the office three days per week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) in September. Upon their return to in-person work, nanny will need to have some flexibility to start as early as 8 AM and end as late at 6 PM as needed. This family also travels regularly, so nanny may receive up to 4 weeks of PTO per year.

This is a child-focused role, so nanny is not expected to assist with household duties, except for baby’s laundry and meal prep, and tidying up after baby. Their large hillside home is located in Upper Rockridge, with a street level kitchen and living area, lower level bedrooms, and an upper level loft. The yard is also tiered, and mostly stone, with a small grassy area for play. Lake Temescal Park is a hilly, 20-minute walk from the home. No driving is required, but nanny is encouraged to explore the quiet, residential neighborhood with baby. The home is not yet fully baby-proofed, so a candidate who is familiar with baby-proofing would be a bonus! Nanny will be provided with a phone for use during the workday, through which household cameras can be viewed, and an app to track baby’s eating, sleeping, and activities can be accessed.

There is one pet in the home, a small long-haired chihuahua who is frightened of the stairs and tends to stay in the lower level of the home. No pet care is required, except to occasionally let him outside on days in which mom and dad are not working from home.

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

Family Assistant for Full-Time Weekend Support of Growing Family

Base Schedule:
Option A

  • Thursday-Saturday
  • 8 AM-8 PM
  • 36 hours, including 12 hours of overtime pay, per week

Option B

  • Friday-Sunday
  • 8 AM-8 PM 
  • 36 hours, including 12 hours of overtime pay, per week

Additional Hours:

  • Flexibility to stay until 10 PM Fridays & Saturdays as needed
  • Rare travel possible, but not required

Are you an experienced family assistant who has mastered the art of efficient multi-tasking? Are you a diligent organizer who enjoys taking on organization projects and implementing new systems? Are you comfortable with collaboration and feedback? If you answered ‘yes’ to all of these questions, this may be the job for you!

This delightful, upbeat family is looking for a cheerful, energetic, and detail-oriented family assistant to help keep the home in order and running smoothly, as well as pitch in with childcare. There will be no crossover between duties, with household duties being expected when the kids are occupied by mom and dad, and childcare expected when mom and dad are taking on household duties. Family assistant should expect a split of about 60% household support and 40% childcare.

Household responsibilities include tidying and organizing throughout the day, pitching in with meal prep and cooking, light family laundry as needed, errands (car wash, dog groomer, local shopping), and light pet care. A vehicle will be provided for use on the job, so family assistant should be comfortable driving a large SUV for errands and outings. The family travels often, so there will be some weekends in which family assistant will be working in the home alone. On those occasions, when children are not present, bigger projects (like organizing the garage) may be expected. This family has a regular housekeeper who does the deep cleaning and the majority of the family laundry twice per week. 

Right now they are a family of 4, but soon they’ll be a family of 5–a new baby is due soon! They have an au pair for Monday-Thursday care of the older children, and mom and dad usually take the lead on weekends, but candidates should have experience with a range of ages, infants through preschool, for the childcare component of this job.

Big sister recently turned 4. She’s friendly, silly, and quick to warm. She loves making jewelry with mom, telling jokes, and is eager to be the center of attention! She goes to a very nearby cooperative preschool until 2:30 PM. Little brother turned 2 in February, and also attends a (different) nearby preschool until 12 PM. The school schedule is weekdays only, so for the purposes of this position, school dismissal times only apply on Thursdays and/or Fridays, depending on what schedule the family assistant chooses. Brother loves trucks and books. He still naps daily, and wakes up smiley and ready to play!

These siblings get along very well, but the ideal candidate will understand sibling rivalry, and be patient and understanding through the occasional challenging moments. Family assistant should also be comfortable assisting with the evening routine, including dinner, baths, and bedtime as needed.

Dad is in tech. He works long hours and travels often, but will generally be home through at least part of the weekend. He is kind and has a great sense of humor. Mom is in the beginning stages of launching a fashion and lifestyle business. She is extremely upbeat and outgoing. Family assistant will be working closely alongside mom, so someone who is collaborative, friendly, proactive, and has a positive attitude is a must! Also part of the family is a very well-behaved, adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Some light pet care, such as taking the dog to the vet or grooming appointments, letting him in and out throughout the day, and taking him for walks is required. Family assistant must be comfortable with dogs.

Attentive, Dependable Nanny for Happy Baby Brother & Fun Sisters

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Friday
  • 9:30 AM-5:30 PM
  • 40 hours per week

Additional Hours:

  • Ability to stay until 8 PM occasionally, with notice
  • Flexibility for date nights and weekends preferred, but not required

This jovial, down-to-earth family is seeking a nurturing and responsible nanny in south Berkeley, primarily for their 7 month old son! He’s very wiggly and physically active, with an even-tempered, observant personality overall, and the sweetest, most squishable cheeks! He’s not yet crawling, but he gets around easily by rolling all over the place. He is formula-fed and has also begun solids (a combination of finger foods and purees), which he is doing very well with. Baby is currently napping 3 times per day, but will be transitioning to two naps very soon. It’s important that nanny is experienced and comfortable with infant care, and has a loving, attentive approach. 

This family has two older daughters, as well, though they generally require care only in the afternoons, after 3 PM. In this later portion of the day, nanny will take a “divide and conquer” approach with mom, and care for one or two of the children so that typically, neither adult will manage all three children at once for an extended period of time. Nanny should have a “go with the flow” personality, as afternoon duties may vary from day to day, and could include school pick-ups, driving to afterschool activities, spending time outdoors around the neighborhood, or hanging out at home while the kids read, play, or do art projects. 

Big sister is in kindergarten at a school about 10 minutes away by car. She is currently learning how to read, and is very bright, social, charismatic, and full of energy! She can be somewhat strong-willed, so nanny should be patient and gentle, while also having the ability to set and maintain firm boundaries. While big sister does not have school in the summer, she will be attending local summer camps and may occasionally have afternoon activities. 

Little sister goes to a preschool within a 15-minute walk of the home, and her program is year-round, with only a 3-week summer break. She is friendly and chatty, and enjoys being the center of attention! She loves books, so much so that she seems to be teaching herself how to read! Reading is an important part of this job, as both girls are learning how to read independently, and this family loves and truly values books. Little sister is also very keen on helping with baby brother, and they have a sweet and bonded relationship.

This position is primarily child-focused, and includes simple meal preparation for the children, packing school snacks and lunches, and folding and putting away the children’s laundry. For pick-ups and drop-offs that are not within walking distance, a vehicle will typically be available for use, but it is required that nanny have their own vehicle to use on the job as needed, with mileage reimbursement. Bathtime and pajamas also generally happen in the late afternoon or early evening, so nanny should be comfortable bathing the children. 

Mom and dad are very kind and upbeat, and have a positive, respectful, gentle parenting style. They describe their family as warm and joyful, and want to bring someone who will continue to cultivate these qualities onto their family team. They also believe in fostering independence and autonomy. They use practical and proactive discipline, utilizing redirection and focusing on the root of behavior–for example, in moments of overzealous play, mom may redirect the girls into more structured physical activity, like doing push-ups together, or when emotions are escalating, dad may ask the girls to count to 10 to calm down before moving to a new activity.

Nanny should have a similar caregiving approach, with the ability to engage with and support the children, while also facilitating and encouraging independent play opportunities (for example, setting out art supplies and allowing the girls to work on freeform art projects), as well as providing respectful and considerate structure and guidance. 

Mom is a stay-at-home parent and artist, and will spend much of nanny’s workday volunteering at the girls’ schools, running errands, and keeping the household organized and running smoothly. Dad is a lawyer, and works outside of the home at his office in San Francisco 3 days per week, and from his home office 2 days per week. He travels for work 1-2 times every quarter, for between 2-4 days at a time, and during his travel time, nanny should be flexible to stay until 8 PM. Advance notice of travel dates will be provided.

The home is bright, modern, and very kid-friendly. The walls are covered in family photos, kids’ artwork, and ABCs and sight words and there are book shelves in nearly every room! The bedrooms are on the upper level of the home, and there is a full bathroom at the end of the hall. The girls have their own spacious, organized bedrooms. Right now, baby brother sleeps in a nook off of the main bedroom, which is separated from the room and bathroom by blackout curtains. There is a glider for post-nap bottles, and a changing station in the main bedroom, as well. He may transition to a pack-n-play in another upstairs bedroom for naptime soon. On the main level of the home, there is a big, beautiful kitchen, and multiple Nugget couches! There is a great backyard with fruit trees, a climbing structure, and trampoline, as well as a shaded deck where there’s a baby mat, playpen, and lots of supplies for messy art projects.

This family has no pets. 

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

Friendly, Creative Nanny for Baby Boy & Big Brother

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Friday
  • 8 AM-4 PM
  • 40 hours per week

This cheerful family is seeking a warmhearted, easy-going nanny for their 2 ½ month old baby boy and his 2 ½ year old big brother. They would love to find someone who is clever and inventive when it comes to activities, and who has experience with sleep-training to support the development of a daily nap routine for baby. 

Little one is a total charmer! He has a very relaxed temperament and is already smiling! He’s exclusively breastfed, though on the occasions in which he’s been given a bottle, he has taken it without a fuss. He sleeps very well, as long as he’s truly tired when it’s time to put him down–so it will be important that nanny is experienced with infants and able to pick up on his cues. This family has found that they thrive on a schedule, so they are looking for a nanny who values order and consistency, especially as baby gets older and becomes ready to transition out of on-demand feeding and sleeping and into a more structured day.

Big brother is equally as charming, with the most delightfully friendly personality. He’s the kind of toddler who sees everyone as a friend! He loves trucks, blocks, and books, and his favorite color is yellow. He’s very content to play independently, checking in periodically to show off a favorite toy, and then quickly returning to entertaining himself. He’s also already potty-trained! He will be starting preschool 5 days per week in August, at a nearby Montessori school. To smooth the transition, the idea is to begin with a part-time morning schedule from around 8:45-11:45 AM, and slowly ramp up to a full-day schedule with a 3 PM end. Generally, nanny will be responsible for drop-offs and pick-ups, and a vehicle will be provided for use on the job.

Currently, big brother wakes up around 8 AM and has milk, looks at books, gets dressed and ready for the day, and then has some independent playtime until breakfast at 9. After breakfast, he has some more independent playtime until 10 or 10:30 AM, when a daily walk to the park is taken, rain or shine. At noon, following the walk and an hour or so of outdoor play, big brother has lunch with mom and dad (and nanny, too!), and then goes to his room for a nap or quiet time from 1-3 PM. Then, it’s time for some more reading and a snack before nanny goes home for the day. 

While nanny should be comfortable with and open to caring for both children, most days will be a team effort, with mom staying involved and pitching in as often as she’s able to throughout her workday. Generally, this means that mom will prepare lunch, but on days in which her schedule does not allow for this, nanny should be comfortable stepping in with simple lunch prep (usually reheating leftovers). Additional childcare-related duties include kids’ laundry, preparing simple breakfasts for big brother, and packing big brother’s school lunches when the time comes. 

Both parents are in tech and work from home full-time. They have separate home office spaces which are well-protected from household noise, so nanny and the children can be completely comfortable going about their day without fear of interrupting their work. Dad plans to return to in-person work 3 days per week in the future, once big brother is able to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Both parents have somewhat flexible meeting schedules, and mom has the ability to block off time to feed baby each day, so she plans to continue exclusively breastfeeding, but bottles and pumped milk will be available if there is a need. 

Mom and dad are super friendly and easy to get along with. They want to find a nanny who has strong communication skills, a collaborative personality, and is eager to become part of the family. Mom’s parents live nearby, so grandma may relieve nanny at the end of some days. Dad’s very kind and helpful parents live in Southern California and visit often, so it’s important that nanny is also comfortable having grandparents present from time to time.

Their single-level home is very spacious, bright, and welcoming. The entryway opens up to a large family room doubling as a playroom. There, the walls are lined with toys, a train table, kids’ size seating, and bookshelves, and there is minimal furniture, so that there’s plenty of floor space for the boys to play. Off of that room, there’s a separate, more traditionally furnished living room, which opens up to a dining area and kitchen. The children each have their own rooms, side-by-side, and further down the hall is the primary bedroom where mom works during the day. There is a large laundry room with new washer and dryer and big mud sink, a street-level garage where the stroller is located, and a front yard with a lawn where the children can play. Currently, the backyard is mainly cement, but the family is planning to redo this space to make room for a play structure! There is already plenty of shade and a good amount of room for backyard bike riding, a sand/water table, and sidewalk chalk. The family would love nanny input with making the new yard functional and fun for the children.

This family has no pets.

Preschooler & Baby Brother for Engaging & Mindful Nanny

Base Schedule:

  • Monday-Friday
  • 8:30 AM-4:30 PM
  • 40 hours per week

Additional Hours:

  • Date nights 1-2x per month, on Thursdays or Fridays

If you want to work with two sweet boys with friendly parents, in a location walking distance from Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach, this job is perfect for you! This family is looking for a nanny who is experienced with babies and preschoolers, is mindful of safety, is child-led, and who really prioritizes and enjoys engaging with children and supporting their physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being. 

Baby brother, who will require full-time care, will be 3 months old at the start of the position. He has a good temperament, is very strong (and has no problems with tummy time!), and takes a bottle easily. He will let you know if his needs aren’t being met, but as long as he has a full belly and a clean diaper, he’s quite content and easy-going. He sleeps long stretches at night, and will be working toward a nap routine and schedule. In the meantime, nanny should be able to “go with the flow” based on baby’s cues throughout the day until he is on a good schedule. 

Big brother attends a local preschool that follows the SFUSD calendar, so he will be on summer break at the start of the position. He is enrolled in 5 weeks of summer camp, so he will not require full-time nanny care. He is cuddly and silly, yet somewhat reserved. His favorite activities include reading books (especially books about being silly!), doing artwork, and anything involving robots or animals. His favorite colors are pink and blue and he already knows how to write the first and last letters of his name! Mom says he’s very coordinated and enjoys doing somersaults and kicking a ball around.

Dad is a creative director and works from home full-time, and mom works from home 3 days per week, as well as outside of the home as a registered nurse 2 days per week. These parents are looking for someone they really connect with. They truly desire a collaborative relationship with nanny, so candidates should be open-minded and adaptable, but also eager to be an active and productive member of the family team. The most important thing is that all of the adults in the home work together to give the children the best possible care! Nanny should be comfortable with mom participating in the day as she’s able to when she’s home.

The organized, updated home in the Outer Sunset neighborhood is on two levels. At street level are the entrance and mudroom, the garage, which has the laundry area in it, and the primary bedroom. There are no stairs to the street, so no lugging the stroller! The kids’ bedrooms and living area, which is open to the kitchen, are on the upper level. Big brother has his own room with a big bed and lots and lots of books. Next door is baby’s room, which currently doubles as dad’s home office, and houses his guitar collection. There is a deck off of the living room with stairs leading down to a hardscaped backyard, perfect for push toys, and has a trampoline, and a veggie garden! 

This family lives a 15-minute walk from Ocean Beach and one block away from Golden Gate Park. A vehicle will be provided for use on the job for longer treks and preschool/summer camp drop-offs and pick-ups. There are two pets in the home, an elderly German Shepherd and a large middle-aged cat. 

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