Mom and dad are both working full-time from home, and they are looking for someone who can take care of the boy while they work. It's $18/hour gross, with room to grow to $20/hour gross after the first week with stellar feedback. The position will begin as soon as they find the right fit! Apply today!

The Ideal Sitter for this Job

Their ideal sitter is someone who is comfortable working alongside both parents and is caring and warm. Someone who is talkative and outgoing who can help work on his speech by talking to him a lot. Someone who can run around and have fun with him. They are more flexible with experience, and are open to a caregiver of any gender.


The core schedule is Monday to Friday, 9:30 AM-5:30PM.

About the Children

boy, 1.5 - He is super active--walking and running a lot! His next big stage of development will be his speech! He only says a few words at the moment, so this is their focus. They are hoping their nanny will encourage speech by being super talkative with him. He may take a bit more time to warm up at first, but is a very sweet, fun toddler.


Working in tandem with the parents to help with the boy's daily care. Tag-teaming with them to play with him, feed him, change him, put him down for naps, and have fun with him. Parents will be making his food and the nanny will feed him. Helping with keeping the home tidy and organized. During his naps, they are happy to let their nanny have a bit of a break, too.

Additional Information

The family is very COVID conscious. They strongly believe in social distancing and wearing masks. They aren't doing indoor dining or visits with people. They get most things delivered and go for walks socially-distanced from people. They would prefer their person wear masks with them for the first few days until everyone gets to know each other. Ideally, their nanny is within walking or cycling distance, but they are open to someone who needs to take a short train ride to get to them.
