A caring and collaborative family of three is seeking a joyful, engaging, and creative nanny to care for their soon-to-be 1-year-old boy. Based in Oakland, California, they are hopeful to find a candidate who can join their family in nurturing their rapidly growing, curious son.
This family deeply values togetherness and enjoys spending as much time as possible with one another. From cooking meals together to hiking together to exploring the city together, they have made sure to prioritize family time and joy in their home. The family values communication, collaboration, and open-mindedness. Their son is growing into a happy, curious, and playful boy who loves to read, to sing, and to chat! They are excited to find a nanny who can collaborate alongside them while they guide their son’s development, stimulate his curiosity, and nurture his growth for years to come.
The ideal candidate for this role will have a cheery, open-minded, and collaborative disposition. Knowledge of developmental milestones and excitement to implement enriching activities that are both fun and encourage their son’s intellectual development will be at the heart of this role. Their son loves to learn and has no trouble leading the way with his curiosity, so the family hopes to find a nanny who will get down on his level and be an engaging and stimulating role model. This may include reading, singing, chatting, and going on fun adventures! An optimistic spirit, an attentive mind, and a nurturing and loving demeanor will go a long way in this home.
This is a full-time live-out position. The family is offering 50 guaranteed hours per week with the schedule generally falling Mondays through Fridays from 7:45 am to 6:30 pm. They are lucky to have a nearby network of family who loves to jump in and provide childcare from time to time and the family is happy to offer extra paid time off on these occasions. The family is offering between $25 to $30/hour as well as generous paid time off and sick days. The family lives right off College Ave within a 7 minute walk of Rockridge BART station and no vehicle is required for the role. They hope to find the perfect candidate as soon as possible!
This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license and passport. This family will be prioritizing local candidates at this time, but are happy to consider relocation for the right person.
