Full-Time Short-Term Nanny in Redmond 

 

This family is looking for a nanny for their 28 month old son. He is very rambunctious and has a lot of energy.  His favorite activities are playing with a ball (especially basketball and tennis) and going on the swings at the park.  When not focused on playing, he’s very chatty and is starting to put together ~5 word sentences. He loves being read to. Some activities he loves are: going to the library, KidsQuest, or the zoo, playing tennis in the cul de sac, walking to one of the two local parks or the elementary school playground, drawing with crayons or driveway chalk, playing in the sandbox or water table, and singing songs. If the nanny was comfortable it would also be great if she could take him places like the zoo to walk around or different parks to vary what he sees a bit.  He also enjoys just playing in the yard and going for walks. The family gives the nanny a lot of latitude to choose and plan what to do with their son during the day and are always happy to listen to any suggestions or advice the nanny may have. Their ideal nanny is someone who has the energy to keep up with him and is willing to play with him, has empathy to help support and guide him as they try to get him more comfortable around other people (like other children at the park), and who has the initiative to come up with ideas and plan activities. Responsibilities include: childcare, child meal prep, children’s laundry (helpful, but not required), light housekeeping related to child and transportation. This position would probably be 6 – 9 months long, depending on daycare waitlist.

They live in a large home, in a peaceful setting in Fall City (about 20 mins from Redmond). Someone experienced in household management would be the best fit for this family.

If there was flexibility for very occasional travel coverage (no more than a couple of nights 2-3 times / year) that would be a bonus, but isn’t required.

Full-Time Nanny in Duvall

This sweet family in Duvall is seeking a full-time nanny for their son, who just turned two years old. He is a kind, smart, active, and sometimes shy little boy.  He loves to dance, help out and loves activities like cooking and “cleaning”.  He is really interested in cars and trucks right now and loves being outside (walks, playground, literally anything outside). He naps daily for two hours and has a good routine. They plan on enrolling him in pre-school once he’s three. Outdoor activities could include playing outside, walking in the neighborhood, going to the playground, small hikes, and outings to places like the zoo. The family will be welcoming twins in June (one boy and one girl). There will be maternity and parental leave once the twins are here, so nanny will not be responsible for all three children. The family is looking forward to welcoming a nanny into their family. They value developing a personal relationship with the person taking care of their children. They really want their nanny to feel valued and as much a part of the family as they are comfortable being.  They want their nanny to feel supported and recognized for the role they will play in their family. The family values quality time as a family. They like to joke, laugh, and be silly. Their ideal nanny would consider childcare as their profession and would have prior professional experience caring for multiple children.  They would love to find someone who they can develop both a personal and working relationship with.

Nanny must have COVID vaccine and booster, and be up to date on all other vaccines, including flu shots and Tdap. Note from the parents: We know that it may be daunting to accept a position caring for 3 children but wanted to make it clear that a lot of the time the nanny will not be responsible for all 3 children simultaneously.  Through November/December at least one parent will be home to aid with childcare and after that period the toddler will be starting pre-school.  Additionally, we both have very flexible work schedules that may allow for more hands on deck during the week when needed. Schedule: March – June (twins birth): 8AM-4/5PM, Monday - Friday.  After the twins are born, 8AM-4PM, Monday - Friday (may need less time since both parents will be home but will still pay guaranteed FT hours).  After Mom returns to work, the days and hours are a little unknown, but they expect there to be a lot of flexibility to create a schedule that works well for everyone. Responsibilities include: childcare, child meal prep, children’s laundry, transportation, and light housekeeping related to children.

Full-Time Nanny in Ballard

 

A family of three (and small pup) is looking for a part-time nanny for their 2 year old daughter. She is very eager to explore right now and is becoming more and more independent. She really enjoys outdoor time, going on walks, and running at the park. Their daughter is somewhat shy around new folks, thoughtful, generous, caring, and sometimes quite sensitive. Her current favorite activities around the house are painting, arranging items, and putting them in containers, practicing or learning new tasks like feeding the dog or sweeping the floor, having books read to her, climbing, running, playing in sensory bins and with playdough. Outings could include going on walks, going to the zoo, or to a park (like Discovery park). The family describes themselves as good natured, creative, and friendly. They enjoy healthy food, arts, and creating a supportive, happy and secure environment for their daughter. They are genuinely open to learning from their nanny and will appreciate a unique perspective. They care about the expertise and ideas that their nanny has, and one of the main things they value in a nanny is somebody who can bring new perspective, ideas, and culture into their home. Their ideal nanny is kind, caring and trustworthy. They are proactive, communicates actively and clearly, sets expectations, and meets them, and is reliable. Someone that takes initiative and finds fun activities and projects to do with their daughter is ideal. They would love someone who is upbeat and cheerful. It would be fun to bring more music and dancing into their house. The parents both have art backgrounds and encourage arts and crafts and creative projects. A candidate with educational experience is a bonus, particularly Montessori. The parents are looking forward to having a second child in the future, so the nanny’s responsibilities could transition to help with the new addition while the oldest is in a half/full day Montessori program. This family is COVID cautious and is looking for someone that shares similar views. (ex. small and simple bubble, extremely aligned on COVID protocols and acceptable risks). They are looking forward to having their daughter socialize more and would love it if their nanny had a small network of other nannies they know and trust to be safe with COVID, to have playdates with. Responsibilities include: childcare, child meal prep, transportation, light housekeeping related to child.
