The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The family is looking for someone who is well versed in the ways of toddlers and infants. Patience and a sense of humor are essential, and they would love someone who is educated in positive discipline. The family is looking for someone who can hold firm boundaries with the toddler, while still being warm and empathetic to big toddler emotions! They are still working out exactly what needs will be once Mom is done with maternity leave, so someone flexible and supportive is also a huge help.
The position is full-time, (30-40 hours/week, with potential for overtime), but the family is still working out the particulars and exact hours they will need once Mom is off of maternity leave
About the Children
boy, 3 - He is a funny little one, very curious, bright and outgoing. He also has big time toddler-energy! boy, 3 months - the baby is very sweet, super-chill and sleeps well.
The responsibilities for this role may shift with seasonality, and depending on when they find the right fit. During this spring/summer, the nanny would primarily with Mom while she wraps up maternity leave. The three-year-old is currently home, so this would include plenty of outdoor time with him, planning crafts/fun activities, and also caring for the infant while Mom takes the toddler to soccer and other outdoor activities. The toddler begins a half-day camp in late June. In August/September, Mom will return to work and the toddler will attend a preschool program 5 days/week, from 9 AM to 1 PM, so the nanny's main responsibility would be for the baby during that time. The position may require some short-distance driving (the older boy's school is approx. 2 miles from the house), planning some playdates for the baby, and helping out with food preparation and laundry for both boys. The family would also love support from their nanny to keep the infant on a consistent nap schedule.
They are a very Covid-cautious family, who are doing their best to keep themselves and their nanny safe and exposure low. Once Mom finishes maternity leave, she and Dad will likely both be working from home part-time, and commuting to NYC part-time. On any given day, one will likely be home and help out with driving the toddler to school. Dad is fully-vaccinated and Mom is planning to very soon. The ideal candidate would be vaccinated or planning to be as soon as possible!
