  • Overview

    A creative and supportive family of four is looking for a kind, patient, nurturing, consistent nanny with a can-do attitude to join their collaborative happy household in Palo Alto, CA. This special someone will be looking after their four-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son while also pitching in with household and family assisting tasks. 

     

    This is a creative and lively household and the perfect candidate will feel the same about themselves! Both children are curious and energetic, love arts and crafts, singing, and learning. While helping out with tutoring their children is a bonus, the family is much more passionate about finding someone to help their children with their social, emotional, and character development. Consistency and communication is very important to this family! They are looking for someone to become a part of the family and to love and educate their children as they do. They hope to find someone with whom they can have an open channel of communication with where input can be shared comfortably in both directions.

     

    On a typical day, after picking up one or both children from school you may drop them at lessons, find an adventure or activity outside the home, practice with the boy's band, or run out into the yard for a game of soccer. If both of the children are occupied or engaged in something else, the perfect candidate will jump in on family laundry, tidying up the kitchen, or running errands. Light meal prep will sometimes be needed, such as packing lunches for the kids. Occasionally they will have visitors and hope to find someone who can help out assisting caterers as well as watching over their guests’ children along with their own.

     

    This family loves to travel and loves the outdoors. They typically travel one weekend a month along with several week-long trips throughout the year and are hoping that their future nanny will be able to accompany them on several vacations throughout the year.

     

    This is a full-time live-out position with a 6-day-a-week schedule with Sundays off. The family is offering $30-$35/hour with room to grow, a health and phone stipend, PTO, and sick leave. A vehicle will be provided when with the family. They are hoping to find the perfect person to join their family as soon as possible!
