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!

The Ideal Sitter for this Job

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! The family would be okay with someone living in during the week when they are working, but are okay with someone who is close by and can get to them without using public transit.


The core schedule is 3-5 days/week depending on the nanny's availability. The ideal hours are 8-6/7 PM, daily. They are happy to guaranteed 30-40 hours/week depending on the schedule.
