Overview

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).

The Ideal Sitter for this Job

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.

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.
