There is a private space on the ground floor with a private bathroom and entrance for the nanny to use and they are happy to offer weekends and most evenings off for your own space and time! It's $25-30/hour gross, plus overtime after 40 hours/week. They are happy to reimburse for all travel to and from Nantucket and cover food when living in. Apply today!

The Ideal Sitter for this Job

They are a pretty laid back family, especially in the summer, so someone who matches their personalities and style is best. They try not to overschedule themselves and really enjoy the time together as a family. Dad is working full-time and they like to spend a lot of time together as a family. Someone who is a go with the flow kind of person and is adaptable in terms of the responsibilities of with whom they are caring for is best! It's a real team effort with mom between the three kids. Someone energetic who can keep up with the kids. Someone adaptable who can fill in where mom can't be and can anticipate this need or see where they are needed (when they've gotten to know them and been trained on the routine, etc.). Helping with the kids, but also helping to keep things in order at home and really be a helping hand. Helping with the kids laundry and some meal prep for the kids. They eat pretty simply (rice, chicken, roasted vegetables).  Someone who can drive and swim! Comfortable riding a bike, too! They are also open to a live out situation should someone have a place to stay in Nantucket!


The core schedule is Monday to Friday, 8:30-5/5:30 PM.  They are happy to guarantee at least 45 hours/week with overtime.

About the Children

girl, 4.5- She is going to do a few camps this summer. She is in pre-K and pretty social. She is a happy and fun toddler. She is in a phase where she wants to be with mom a lot.  twin girls, 1.5- The twins are starting to talk and are pretty active. They have one nap a day and are transitioning it to the afternoons, from 1-4 PM. They all three get along really well and enjoy their time together playing. 


Working alongside mom to cover the days with the kids. Mom is usually with the oldest as she is pretty attached to mom and the nanny will be with the twins. Helping with the morning routine and getting the oldest to camp. Spending the day with the twins and taking them out for fun activities or planning creative projects at home. Doing swim lessons with mom and the twins. They also will be right on the beach at their grandparents and there is no end to the fun outdoor activities to be had there! Helping with the general tidying and management of the kids belongings (clothes, rooms, laundry, supplies, etc.). Helping with some light housework to keep things in order while they are up there.

Additional Information

At the grandparents house in Nantucket and they will be there. The family lives in the guest house and the nanny has their private space on the ground level with a bedroom and full bath. It also has access outdoors.  Regarding Covid, they've been very careful and both parents are vaccinated. They don't really do outdoor dining, but they will probably start doing that this summer. They've really stayed home with the kids this last year. The oldest girl is in school in person, but she wears a mask. She has been tested once a week at school, too. The girl will be in camp in person, but it's all outdoors and they will follow all the protocols necessary. They recently started seeing grandparents who are all vaccinated. Anyone who visits will be vaccinated and they'd prefer a vaccinated nanny to live with them this summer. They will drive up to Nantucket, but can reimburse for a flight for the nanny or gas and tolls if one would prefer to drive their own car up.
