The BEST family in Santa Monica is seeking an outstanding WEEKEND nanny to help them care for their 3 boys, ages 21 months, 9 and 11 years! The schedule is Saturday and Sundays, 10-12 hours per day. MUST be comfortable committing to every weekend! Rate is $35/hr + OT, with room for growth long-term + health insurance stipend + signing bonus! In this role you will split your time between the toddler who is active, clever, a tad mischievous, and oh so much fun, and the two older boys, who are super active, love sports, and love all things outdoors! The eldest child has autistic tendencies, primarily in regards to attention, so patience and an ‘up for anything’ attitude is a must! You will likely never have all 3 kids, as the parents will be tag-teaming with you to ensure everyone is cared for.
This role is primarily child-focused (family has a FT housekeeper), and duties will involve focusing on the children’s development, planning fun and educational activities and outings, simple meal prep for the kids, and coordinating the daily routines. The parents would also appreciate some help running occasional errands and keeping the children’s schedules and belongings organized. On the weekends there are always activities galore so a divide-and-conquer mentality is needed! In true LA-style this family LOVES the beach so if you love fun in the sun you’ll fit right in! The right candidate also enjoys traveling as the family loves taking occasional trips (their favorite destination is Hawaii!) and would love to take their nanny along for the fun! The family really enjoys entertaining and being active socially so it’s important that you too enjoy being around people, attending events alongside the family, and can easily converse with a wide range of people.
You should be pet friendly, the family has a large (but very sweet!) dog, and a confident swimmer is a must, given their love of the beach. Covid vaccine + boosters required. At the end of the day, this family is looking for a strong team player who loves kids, enjoys working as a team with parents who are always in and out, and is seeking a long-term job for years to come with a family who will treat you like gold! Don’t miss this chance! Truly an incredible family! Hiring ASAP!
