Are you in New Jersey and looking for a part-time job?
This lovely family in South Orange is looking for someone warm and caring to spend afternoons with their 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son. Both kids are going to school, the boy full time at a nearby private school, and the girl likely to switch to a hybrid schedule of in-person and remote through her public school.

Looking to spend your afternoons with a creative and playful first grader? Have experience with school aged kiddos?
This SmartFamily on the UES is looking for an engaging and imaginative nanny for their 6-year-old son, the eldest of three boys. He is a ball of energy who also loves to make-believe and dive into new and fascinating topics (his current obsession is chess!). The nanny will be responsible mostly for the older boy, picking him up from school and walking him home (about 10-15 minutes), helping with any homework, and playing with him (and sometimes his younger brother, 3) until mom and dad get off work at 6:30 PM.
The ideal nanny for this role is someone full of creative energy, who loves world building and imaginative play, who can also run around outside, and balance the fun with boundary-setting and light discipline. Some experience with preschool-aged kids is a huge plus for those one-off moments. The family is being careful with COVID, wearing masks anytime they're outside/in school, and would like a nanny following similar guidelines. They are okay with someone who needs to take public transportation.
Rate for this job is $25-30/hour for 22 hours/week guaranteed. This position is set to start in March, with interviews beginning as soon as next week. Apply today!
The family is looking for someone active and playful, who is up to be outside and run around as weather permits. Someone caring, who knows how to engage and entertain school-aged kids, but also is not afraid to keep them in line when needed. The boy loves imaginative play, so a great way to wrangle him is to create a world and dive into it! He also loves to learn and is very curious, so being able to connect with him and find something to capture his mind. He is currently obsessed with chess, so someone who is good at chess would be a fun bonus!
Starting in March, the core schedule for this position is Monday to Thursday, 2:30 PM to 6:30 PM, with Fridays starting at 12:30 PM. The family is happy to guarantee 22 hours/week.
They will be out of the city from mid/end of June through end of August, and would love to start back up in the fall is the nanny is still available.

Are you adventurous and fun?! Are you a great companion to teenagers and open to helping them keep organized with school and also having fun!?
A lovely UES family is looking for someone new to join their team while their youngest son, 15, is learning remotely during the winter. He is typically in boarding school in CT, and will return at the end of March. He is an active kid who is quite motivated by his school work and strives for success! He has ADHD and some issues with concentration, so someone who can assist him with this and guide him in being more organized and focused will be best. They love active and fun caregivers who are really interested in spending time with him and being with him.
While the role will primarily be in the UES, if their new babysitter was open to spending time in the North Shore on LI, they'd welcome it, though this is NOT required.
It's $18/hour gross, with room to grow to $20/hour after the trial period. This role will start as soon as they find the right fit!
They are looking for a companion and master of fun to work with their son after school. Their ideal babysitter is self-motivated, creative, patient, and has a good sense of humor. Someone with a positive attitude and wants to have fun with him. Someone patient and kind who understands him and wants to spend time with him.
The greatest nannies and babysitters that they have had were people who were very outgoing, fun, adventurous, and wants to share their interests with him. Their other nanny was super organized and tidy, she'd been the oldest of five and a true momma bear, and a real champion of his learning. If you posses any or all of these qualities, apply! :)
A short train ride is ok, or they are willing to reimburse for an Uber if close by!
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 3:30-7:30 PM.Learn more about this job

Are you looking for a short-term nanny position? Do you have experience with two-year-olds?
A lovely family in Hoboken is looking for a nanny for a few weeks while they wait for their new au pair to start. They are looking for someone with experience as a nanny for a 2-year-old and who is warm and fun. They have a growing boy on their hands who is super active and really happy. Their ideal sitter is warm, positive, easy going, and super helpful and engaging to help during this crazy and weird time in the world!
They are currently practicing strict social distancing and minimizing their trips to the local grocery store and seeings others as mom is pregnant. They are also using masks and gloves when outside for walks around the building and are strongly leaning towards working with those who live nearby in NJ and follow these same practices. Aligning with them on this is paramount.
It's $18/hour gross to start with room to grow after the first week! All transportation to and from the role each week can be covered as well if you live nearby. Don't let this one slip by!
Someone super Covid conscious as mom is pregnant and likely has gestational diabetes again. Someone who has experience with two-year-olds, is communicative and open, a true team player. Someone who can keep up with the boy - a really engaging and education-focused nanny is most ideal. A creative and proactive nanny is best for them as well!

Do you speak fluent Hebrew and can read and write in Hebrew?! Are you looking for a new full-time nanny role with a growing family?
A kind and loving family on the Upper West Side is seeking a Hebrew-fluent and literate nanny to join their child care team, which consists of two other full-time nannies. They have two kids, 3 and 1, and are welcoming a third in the New Year. They are hoping to have someone kind, energetic, flexible, and experienced (in addition to Hebrew-fluent) join their happy home.
Thanks to their wonderful child care partners, the parents are able to continue their fulfilling (and demanding) careers while their children are thoughtfully and lovingly supported throughout the next year.
It's $30-50/hour gross (DOE) for at least 40 hours/week guaranteed. Overtime as applicable and benefits included! The position has a very flexible start and they are willing to hire someone ahead of the arrival of the new baby to get settled and connect with the family and other nannies!
A fluent and literate Hebrew speaker is required first and foremost, with an understanding of non-secular Hebrew studies and an ability to teach the kids both the language and about the culture. Someone who can help their kids learn Hebrew and understand the importance of their culture is hugely important to this family.
Someone who is communicative, open, and works well with others is paramount as you will always be working alongside at least one other caregiver or parent. Someone warm, professional, and very organized.
Experience from newborns to toddlers is hugely important as they are welcoming a new baby, and while you'd likely always be working alongside another nanny or parent, the ability to shift between kids or tasks is important.
The ideal person will be open to working with the family as their exclusive employer and will maintain small circles and minimal exposure outside of their position. The family loves, values, and respects their full-time nannies who they describe as the glue and backbone of their family. One of their current nannies is higher risk for COVID, so there are many precautions being taken to keep her and her husband safe.
Their parenting style (and specialty of one nanny) is very aligned with Montessori education, so an understanding or interest in this is great, but not required!
The core schedule will be Monday to Friday, from 11am-7pm OR from 7am-3pm, depending on the other nannies' schedules.
Flexibility to stay later on occasion or shift the hours i a huge plus for these busy working parents.
$1000/week gross guaranteed and including overtime
Are you interested in a live-in position throughout the rest of the school year (and potentially longer) with a cool family on the Upper West Side of NYC starting in the new year? Are you super proactive and can be a role model for two super smart and sweet boys? Are you comfortable driving in NYC? Can you travel a few times a year (when the world is more normal)? You might be the most ideal fit then!
This busy family has two boys, 6 and 7 years old boys who are currently in school (COVID protocols in place), but it could go remote at any time. This dual career family needs to get some work done and you could be their saving grace! They can guarantee $1010/week for up to 48 hours with overtime included, your own bedroom for the weekdays, and a bathroom shared with kids. You'd wake up with the boys in the morning and get them ready for the day. Prepare breakfast, ensure they dress themselves, brush their teeth, and make their beds, then drive them to school and back (UWS to the Bronx). Clean driving record + current license is a MUST, though you can use their car.
While the kids are in school, you will have down time and help with some household management tasks. Once a week, the family ask you to do a grocery run. During this time of lighter hours, some weekend coverage will be helpful. If (and probably when) school goes virtual this winter, you would help the boys with their Zoom lessons throughout the day, keeping them on track and motivating them to stay focused. Schedules are discussed in advance and off time is OFF TIME for you. They understand that the job is not exactly 40+hours right now, but they are willing to guarantee the income so that when school does go remote, they are not in a sudden bind for child care and remote learning support. They also offer paid vacation and because they travel, the nanny may have more paid time off than expected.
Their ideal person is Spanish speaking, though they have some flexibility here, and is absolutely someone who can create boundaries in a warm and loving way. Ultimately, someone who has full-time experience, can travel, and drive, and is really proactive is their most ideal person. Someone who can teach manners and life skills (can't have two boys that get to college and don't know how to do laundry!) The oldest is super smart and sometimes struggles with that as he can get bored easily with his schoolwork when he isn't stimulated enough. He also has big emotions at times and needs guidance and patience in this area. Someone who will be able to handle this and create a fun and stimulating environment for him will be best. Someone proactive, who is ready to jump in with whatever is needed, and has a can-do attitude! Full-time experience, not necessarily in childcare, is required and a good work ethic is truly appreciated.
If interested, please respond back with your availability for an initial phone call, confirm your clean driving record, and include info about why this job would work for you (and for how long).
A consummate professional who has long-term experience in a full-time role (doesn't have to be childcare necessarily) is most ideal. Fluent Spanish speaking is super important as well. Their ideal person can create boundaries in a warm and loving way. Someone who can teach manners and life skills (can't have two boys that get to college and don't know how to do laundry!). The oldest is super smart and sometimes struggles with that as he can get bored easily with his schoolwork when he isn't stimulated enough. Guiding the boys and showing them how to be better humans and eventual adults through role modeling is super important. Someone who will be able to handle this and create a fun and stimulating environment for him will be best (bring your creative minds!). Someone proactive, who is ready to jump in with whatever is needed, and has a can-do attitude!
And finally, someone ultra communicative who can join into a partnership with the parents. Especially during this challenging time, they need someone who can communicate openly and transparently with them.
Family will guarantee 48 hours/week (with overtime after 44 hours). Exact Monday to Friday schedule TBD depending on school and remote learning schedules.Learn more about this job
