Wonderful 2-dad family in beautiful Santa Barbara is searching for an exceptional full-time, live-out nanny/family assistant to join their team! They have a 6-month-old daughter and a 2.5-year-old son who are the center of their universe! They are looking for an amazing caregiver to work as a partner in parenting, provide educational value, and help to keep them organized. The typical schedule is Mon-Fri from 8:00am-5:30pm; however, you should be flexible to start earlier/stay later as needed. You should be comfortable working 45-50 hours, but they do have local babysitters for evenings/weekends as back up. Target annual salary is $90-100K gross depending on experience and education. Both dads work off-site in a private office and are looking for a nanny who can take charge when on duty.
You should have has strong infant and toddler experience, enjoy being active, and be a naturally patient, positive, cheerful, and easygoing individual. Their perfect nanny is bilingual (Spanish or Portuguese preferred, but open!), has a strong working knowledge of ages and stages, and is very educationally focused – preschool teachers please apply! Duties will include all things child-related; preparing bottles and meals for the children, managing schedules, assisting with bathing, planning age appropriate activities, reading, listening to music and dancing, getting the kids outdoors, coordinating play dates, and driving them to school and activities. Their son is in preschool a few hours each day, so during that time you will be on baby duty and handling other household tasks, including managing household vendors, communicating with other staff (housekeeper, personal assistant and gardener), and keeping a running inventory of household/baby items so they never run out! They have a housekeeper to handle deep cleaning, but you will be responsible for the children’s laundry, daily dishes after the kids meals, cleaning up after meals (think messy high chairs), general tidying, making sure the children’s rooms and play areas are tidy, and ensuring the kitchen is spotless at the end of each day. Grandma lives nearby and likes to take the kids once a week, so during that time you will be able to tackle the weekly grocery shopping, run any errands, and manage organizational projects.
They have an elderly cat and are hoping to get a dog in the coming years, so please be pet friendly and allergy free. This is a very kind and generous family and they looking to hire someone who can grow with them for years to come. The family does enjoy travel and would love to bring their nanny with; please be passport ready and up for an adventure! Must be fully vaccinated for consideration, including Tdap, Covid vaccine + a willingness to get future boosters and an annual flu shot – no exceptions!
