CLOSED - Full time, Live-out Educated Co-Nanny needed Upper West Side - Ref. #UWSB0107
A respectful, tight-knit, loving family of 5 on the Upper West Side, Manhattan is seeking a full-time, supportive and highly-organized self-starter nanny to join their crew. They also have a support nanny part-time after school. We have met their 3 children, ages 5-10, and they are polite, sweet, and a lot of fun. The schedule will be Monday-Friday, 11:30-8:30pm, (or 12-8, depending on the amount of hours desired). You must be flexible with your schedule in the event of a child’s sick day, or school holiday to come in earlier and shift the hours. More hours are offered on the weekends, and for travel, if overtime is desired.
Family has had the same nanny for 5 years, and she has become one of the family. They are looking to replicate this close bond with their next nanny, in time! Family is laid back and tight-knit, wanting someone who will be a part of the family. A genuine love of school-aged children is a must!
The most successful nanny will be someone who is highly proactive and independent: able to take-charge with household organization, cooking, and tidying up before school pick-ups, attentive to the children’s emotional and social development, and lovingly-disciplined with children to guide them as they learn and grow. Nanny will be responsible for full care related to children including laundry, planning and preparing healthy meals , transporting to and from school and activities. While the children are in school, the nanny will be responsible for managing things at home, making sure things are prepared for their next school day, meals, and schedules managed. A high level of organization is required, as is reliability.

- encourage independence, and be conversational and educationally-minded
- be cooperative and work together as a team, and give and receive new ideas and approaches
- demonstrate developmentally-appropriate practices for the children’s various ages
- have exceptional communication skills, and understand the unique relationship of private care in someone’s home
