A multi-year newborn and infant experienced nanny who can bring their expertise while really partnering with the parents to make the best decision. A strong communicator who can bring structure to the baby's day and help mom and dad make transitions and milestones that much easier and on time, i.e. nap transitions from 5-6 per day to 2-3 per day. Someone who really wants to partner with the parents on the girl's care. Someone open to teaming with the parents to find out what will work best for the baby. Someone who has a network of other nannies nearby who also care for babies this age to get her more interaction with littles or is interested in building a network when it's safe. Even someone who is outgoing and wants to make other nanny friends. Spanish speaking is a plus, though not required as the family is bilingual. Ideally their nanny is within walking distance , a short car ride, or has their own car.


The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 9-4 or 5 PM. Flexibility to assist occasionally outside the regular hours by staying later or helping on the weekend is a big plus. Starting in January with some flexibility.

About the Children
