Warm, reliable, and devoted nanny needed for the most amazing (single-by-choice) working mother in Santa Monica! She has two adorable girls, ages newborn and 2 years, and is seeking the love and support of an amazing nanny. The younger of the two was born 3 months early, so her adjusted age is actually closer to one month. The general schedule is Monday-Friday but the hours will vary based on moms’ needs; typical working hours could be 10am-6pm or 7am-4pm. You will be guaranteed 40 hours a week, but MUST be flexible to work up to 50 hours a week (and occasional overnights/weekends when needed). Flexibility is KEY for this role! Rate is $25-30/hr gross + applicable OT.
Duties include full care of both children, with a focus on really investing into them with daily reading and engaging activities that will promote healthy physical, emotional, and mental development. A typical day includes time spent outdoors, whether at the park or strolling through the neighborhood. Additional duties include meal prep, general tidying, light housekeeping (dishes and kids laundry), organizing the children’s things, and running errands as needed. Their ideal nanny is kind, sweet, and gentle, and truly enjoys getting down on a child’s level to engage in play. You should have previous experience with the infant and toddler age groups as well as a strong working knowledge of ages and stages.
You will be mom’s right-hand and partner in parenting so you should be extremely reliable, dependable, safety conscious, and willing to go the extra mile. Someone proactive who can anticipate the needs of a single working mom will be the perfect fit! Please note that mom is allergic to cats so nannies who have cats at home will not be the best fit. You should also be comfortable swimming, fully vaccinated (Tdap, annual flu shot + Covid vaccine + boosters). This is truly one of the best families you could be a part of, and we are eager to find them a fantastic long-term nanny for years to come!
