A family who recently moved to LA from New York is seeking a seasoned nanny to care for their two children. There is an almost 6 year old girl and a 16 month old boy. We would love to find someone with at least 15-20 years experience, who may have adult children of their own. The ideal candidate is friendly, nurturing, loving, happy, engaging, and has a true love for/interest in caring for children. This is a positive, fun household, and the family will appreciate someone who has a great sense of humor with an easy going personality. The discipline structure is such that the children are redirected in gentle ways, talking things through and setting rules in place that are followed. Please be open to the family’s approach and happy to follow their lead.

The younger child is starting preschool in June, and will be there from 9am-12pm. Some light housekeeping would be appreciated during this time, and once he is home, the role will be strictly nanny duties until 7pm. The cleaning duties will consist of laundry, making beds, changing linens once per week, and general tidying around the house (resetting the kitchen after the morning rush, etc). There is a team of cleaners who come twice a week to clean the house, so this is not a deep cleaning position.

During the day (until preschool starts), the nanny will care for the toddler, taking him to classes or for walks in the neighborhood. After school, the nanny will be responsible for both children, handling school pick up (school is within walking distance from the house), after school activities, dinner, and bath time.  MUST have longevity with previous positions and have a desire to grow with a family for the long term. There is one cat in the home, so please be pet friendly! Lovely opportunity!

*Must be vaccinated and up to date with boosters

Duties/requirements will include:

Full charge child care
Meal prep (snacks, lunch, dinner)
General cleaning, laundry, tidying and organizing of kids spaces
Keeping closets up to date (pulling clothes that are too small)

Cleaning the car seats every couple of weeks
Handling all household cleaning related to the kids
