Ferndale family needs a part time nanny for their 4 month old son starting in late August/early September. They have 2 Goldendoodle dogs who need very little care, but someone who likes and is comfortable around dogs is necessary. Mom is an ER physician and dad is a law student. Right now the family needs two,10 hour days on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am-6pm. Mom can be flexible on the two days per week, but she has to put in schedule requests 3 months in advance. She can accommodate a T/Th nanny but the start date would be in November if that were the schedule.
Family is offering 20 hours guaranteed per week. $18 net, with vacation and mileage reimbursement. This family does have back up care in place and has some flexibility at work to change shifts if need be. Driving is ok after a trial period. This is a long term position, and they hope to have open communication and a comfortable relationship with their nanny. Family is open to suggestions from the nanny and wants to work as a team.
Family prefers a non-smoker, someone who has at least 2 years of paid nanny experience and someone long term. Their son has a little bit of reflux, so patience is important. Safety is very important to this person. Candidates must be fully vaccinated including the flu shot. Some days Mom will be home but sleeping from doing an over night shift. Sometimes Dad might be in the home as well studying etc, but both parents plan not to micromanage. Job responsibilities are: the baby comes first, tidying the home (they have a housekeeper biweekly), some baby laundry, cleaning bottles, meal prep for baby, dishes and organizing toys/playroom.
