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.

Start date would be beginning of February, with interviews to begin ASAP. Interested? Apply today!

The core schedule for this position is Monday to Friday, between 12:30 PM and 7 PM, averaging about 6 hours per day. The family is happy to guarantee 30 hours/week with potential for more.

About the Children

Her best friend up the street, and in pod with her, so they love to spend time together when they can. boy, 6 - Active and playful, currently attending private school in person.


Mom and Dad will take the morning responsibilities, so the day would likely begin with some laundry and tidying, before picking the kids up from school.

They also have two dogs who the nanny may have to let out occasionally.

Additional Information

Covid-wise, while no one in the family is high-risk, they are taking a number of precautions.

The whole family wears masks whenever they are outside, the son gets tested monthly through school, and the rest of the family get tests through home kits. There is a house keeper who comes weekly, who is being careful. The family is looking for a sitter who is following guidelines and is willing to get tested with the family on a similar schedule.
