Kind, gentle and engaging Nanny NEEDED for sweet Santa Monica Canyon family with 2 kids (newborn and 8 years). Schedule is Mon-Fri, 40 hours weekly – shifts will typically be 7:30am-3:30pm or 9:30am-5:30pm.Please be flexible to work more hours on weeks when dad is out of town for work. Rate is $22-25/hr Gross depending on experience and education.
The older child will be in school for most of the day, so the position is primarily focused on the newborn; however, you should be comfortable with both age groups. He is enrolled at a Waldorf school and they practice this philosophy at home – you should understand and respect their parenting style and be willing to follow their direction. Duties will include school drop off and pick up for the older child, full care of the baby, encouraging creative, imaginary and independent play, assisting with organizational projects, grocery shopping, preparing meals for the kids, running errands, keeping the house tidy and organized (they have a housekeeper 2x a week for deep cleaning) and general family assistance.
Mom and dad are often around as they work from home, so you must be a team player and comfortable serving as a right hand to very hands-on parents. The ideal candidate is maternal, patient, creative, imaginative, calm, flexible, discreet, organized, innately helpful, and lives a healthy and active lifestyle. If you love feeling like a part of the family and have created strong bonds with your past families, this could be the job for you! Start date is September 2019! Looking to interview now – don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
