Family values: 

This kind, easy-going family is seeking a nanny who can come in and help to implement a bit more structure. Leaning more towards the slightly messy side (vs. immaculately clean), this family prioritizes the happiness, engagement and structure of their children.


Ideal personality (of Nanny):

This two-parent working household is seeking a talkative, engaging, warm childcare professional who is extremely patient and playful. You genuinely enjoy working with kids in a hands-on, engaging way. You would describe yourself as someone who is bubbly and playful, with the ability to be firm when needed. You enjoy helping to implement schedules AND are ok with a go-with-the-flow environment. You are comfortable spending time around parents, who both work from home.  This family is bilingual, and speaks both English and Spanish fluently.


About the Children: 

  • Child A (10 year old): This energetic, on the go, creative child loves to make home movies, read, play swords, and engage in other active games. Child has ADHD and does best with a caregiver who is able to be both playful and implement rules (handle some push back from child). 
  • Child B (8 months old): Is a very mellow, sweet baby who is crawling and exploring everything!


  • You must have a vehicle, a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record (family will reimburse for all mileage used on personal car, or can provide a car for nanny use) 
  • Flu Shot 
  • Willing to obtain COVID vaccine if haven’t already received
  • Must be comfortable swimming

Important to note: 

  • Spanish speaking nanny= A huge plus, but not required
  • Family has 4 indoor cats. 
  • Both parents have full time careers which allow them to work almost entirely remotely, from home. Nanny will be trading off with Mom between 8 month old and 10 year old, with a primary responsibility of the 10 year old. 
  • Family can provide a car for nanny’s use if needed. 
  • Though weekends are not required, they are a huge plus and a way nanny can work extra hours.

*Nanny will not frequently be responsible for both children simultaneously. When they are, baby will take priority (10 year old is pretty independent). Most of the time, Nanny and Mom will trade off, and Nanny will focus primarily on spending quality time with 10 year old. Meal prep (making simple Home Chef meals) will be a part of their responsibilities while Mom cares for both children.
