Full-Time Nanny/Family Assistant Needed in La Canada for Family with Two Children (Ages 3 & 5)! Schedule guarantees a minimum of 40 hours per week and is generally M-F, 7a-5p; however, they are flexible on the start times for the right person, with the understanding that you must be available to start as early as 7am when the children are not in school. Rate is $25-$30/hr DOE.
Both children attend school part of the day; so the role will be a combination of nanny and family assistant responsibilities. This is a home that is clean and organized, but that needs someone to help keep everything on track! They have a weekly housekeeper for deep cleaning, but on a daily basis they need assistance with the dishes, abundance of kids’ laundry, keeping the pantry/medicine cabinet/cleaning supplies stocked, taking out the trash, scheduling appointments, shopping for kids’ clothes/holiday/birthday gifts, packing and unpacking for trips, meeting home repair people, etc. They are looking for someone who sees an area of need and will proactively step in to help. Additional duties will include preparing breakfast and school lunches, getting the kids ready for school, handling pick up and drop off, running errands, grocery shopping, preparing snacks and meal prepping for the children, maintaining their schedules, handing baths, and organizing fun activities.
The perfect person for this role will anticipate needs, values helping others and organization, has a background or coursework in education, is smart, honest, proactive, tech savvy, enjoys researching and organizing fun outings and activities, can provide consistency, is organized and thoughtful, genuinely wants to be invested in the children’s lives and grow with the family, is energetic, and provides open and honest communication. This is family that believes in structure, consistency, and organization, so that there is time and space for fun, quality time! They view their nanny as a true partner! The right person can support the children on an educational level in a fun, low-pressure, and engaging way; and can reinforce social skills, politeness, and independence – encouraging them to clean up after themselves, communicate effectively, demonstrate kindness, etc. You MUST have a clean driving record (they provide a nanny car for use on the job), as well as CPR/First Aid training and basic health knowledge.
This is an awesome family that has worked with WN in the past! They want to maintain a happy, healthy, communicative environment that is warm, respectful, supportive and mutually beneficial for all parties! Don’t miss out on this one!
