A new SmartFamily on the Upper East Side is looking for a full-time nanny for their 9-month-old girl. She is a pretty mellow, easygoing baby, and has a schedule of physical, speech, feeding, and play therapy, and following the sessions, she has to do certain exercises.

They have been very COVID-conscious, so having a nanny who aligns with this is very important.

Someone who is also comfortable and able to follow through with her exercises outside of the sessions. Mom is really detail oriented, especially when it comes to keeping track of the girl's stuff, so someone who aligns with this is important to them. While there are some fluid things in their day-to-day, there are absolutely things like the exercises and follow through with therapies that must get done. So, they are super big on accountability, communication, and time management!
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, extending to 8 AM to 6 PM once normal work schedules resume post-COVID.
