  • Overview

    A lovely, young and friendly family is scouting out the potential to move to Southern California and will be living in the Santa Monica/Westchester area during the late summer and early fall. They are looking for a nanny for their 2-year-old daughter who will begin July 15th. This will begin with a 90-day contract, with the potential to become a long-term position if it is a great match and the family stays permanently.

     

    So, would you like to spend your days with a sweet toddler discovering all that Santa Monica and Southern California have to offer? Are you excited to pack your suitcase for frequent and extended travel this summer? Will you thrive in a role supporting busy professional parents while nurturing and engaging their darling daughter? This might be the perfect job for you!


    This live-out position will be Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. Sometimes the parent's schedule will allow for an earlier afternoon off or require an earlier start time or later end time. The mother will travel regularly for work and you'll be asked to join them on these adventures to provide support as both a nanny while during mom's working hours and as a personal assistant during her time off. You'll be asked to assist with travel arrangements and accommodations, securing reservations and procuring and preparing meals for the child and family.

    The average day may include an activity, outing, or half day at preschool. The nanny will be responsible for driving the child to school and activities, so a valid driver's license, clean driving record, and a safe vehicle are all requirements of this position. The family will provide mileage reimbursements for the use of the nanny's car. They would love to find someone familiar with the area, the activities offered, and comfortable joining or creating a playgroup to encourage social engagement.

    During naptime or when the child is in school, the family would like their nanny to provide some family assisting by tidying up around the home, grocery shopping, meal prep, taking out the trash or other quick tasks that keep the chores from piling up for the parents. They will employ a housekeeper and no deep cleaning will be required. Experience managing vendors, housekeepers, and other household staff would be an asset.

    The family will be paying $20-25/hr and will offer overtime, a healthcare stipend, PTO and the opportunity to become best friends with the sweetest little girl. They would like their new nanny to start July 15th.
