Full time, Live-out Nanny needed Upper West Side, Manhattan - Ref. #UWSS1208
A caring, hands-on, professional family of 4 in the Upper West Side is seeking a patient, loving, and playful full-time, live-out nanny beginning soon. Their children are roughly 5 mo, and 2.5 yrs. The schedule will typically be Monday-Friday 8am-6pm, with a possible date night if desired. Mom has returned back from maternity leave and may drop down schedule at work a bit. Therefore, the long-term position will be guaranteed 45 hours, but there is always the hourly overtime for each hour beyond the minimum weekly. Their oldest will be in school half-days in the fall, and napping straight after school, so the bulk of the day will be engaging with their infant.
The ideal nanny is someone who is patient, emotionally intelligent, with a strong ability to guide children in a positive and playful way! Their 2.5 year old is transitioning through changes with a new sister and mom returning to work, and the best nanny will be someone who can bond with his cheery and loving personality, while pulling him into the daily tasks, making him still feel like a valuable member of the family.
The nanny will be responsible for full care related to children including organizing and completing laundry, meal planning and preparation of baby food and toddler’s meals, transporting to and from school and activities, playdates and organizing activities, basic tidying of the kitchen and children’s environment, and supporting their development with lots of reading and playtime. Taking initiative with ideas and tasks is so appreciated with this busy working family!
All candidates MUST meet these requirements…
- be able to lift up to 35lbs. and climb steps
- have 5 years of experience in childcare, some of which must be full-time with infants and toddlers
- 2 years as a full-time nanny
- have a valid CPR/First Aid certification or obtain one
- be legally authorized to work in the United States
- submit to a background check
- have a professional childcare resume with 3 supervisor references
- flexibility to work one date night if hours are reduced to 45
- have a warm and calm disposition, able to be highly conversational and engaging with both ages of children
- be helpful, cooperative and work together as a team, and give and receive new ideas and approaches
- have impeccable communication skills, and understand the unique relationship of private care in someone’s home
Special consideration given to those candidates who have years of experience as a nanny with multiple children. Salary for 45 hours ranges from $1100-1150 gross (pre-tax), depending on experience and trainings, but will be higher when working over those 45 hours ($1245-1320/wk for 50). Paid time off to include holidays, personal and sick time, and a metrocard.
