Full time, Live-out Nanny and Household Assistant needed near Grand Central Terminal, Manhattan - Ref. #MDE2506
A caring, active, and cultured family of three is seeking a cheerful, helpful and patient full-time, live-out nanny beginning in June. Their daughter is nearly 4, observant, and inquisitive - loves her routines, and playtime! Both parents are professionals in their careers and are seeking someone to be a steady, reliable rock in their family whom they could trust with their daughter’s total care. The schedule will be 7:45am-6:45pm four days a week, and one day about 6 hours (12:45pm-6:45pm) with flexibility to choose which day that will be (will rotate each week), minimum 50 hrs guaranteed per week. We have met the family in their home, and they are down-to-earth, respectful, and professional individuals.
The ideal nanny is someone who is patient, conversational, organized, and emotionally intelligent, able to take initiative when they see a task or better approach that could be taken. Nanny will be responsible for full care related to children including child’s laundry and linens, grocery shopping and meal preparation for lunches and dinners, transporting to and from school and activities, playdates and organizing activities, as well as some household organizational tasks while she is in school or camp all day. Family has a weekly housekeeper, and the nanny would only be responsible for maintaining the overall tidiness of home. When their daughter is home, the ideal nanny will be focused on supporting her development, autonomy, and curiosity with lots of conversation, patience, and above all, fun!
