We are looking for an energetic and loving full time nanny in Weston, MA (approx 40 hours per week). We have two wonderful children and a small friendly dog. (4.5 year old son and a 2.5 year old daughter)
Skills and Duties:
The hours for July and August would most likely be: Mondays 8-8pm, Tuesdays-Fridays 1-8pm, though the ability to start in May or June, at least on a part time basis, would be appreciated
• Starting in September, the hours would be: Mondays 8-8pm, Tuesdays-Fridays 1/2pm-8/9pm
• Flexibility is appreciated. At times, we may need our nanny to come in early, stay a few hours after the kids go to bed or possibly spend the night with the kids to help cover a late night meeting, work travel or date night.
You must have your own car, feel comfortable driving with kids in the car and have an impeccable driving record. You would be picking-up our children at school, taking them to their activities and helping to plan occasional outings to museums, parks, and play dates with friends.
We both work full-time though mom works from home part of the time. Sometimes we both travel for work at the same time and thus the occasional overnight stay. Both kids sleep 11-12 hours at night, so this would just involve being the responsible adult in the house after the kids are put to bed. Additionally, the position may include travel (1-2 times/year), most likely within the US.
We both are very busy and want to spend as much time with our children as possible when we are not working. We would need someone who is comfortable and willing to do light household chores as part of the job. This would include cleaning up the children’s areas, doing their laundry, load and unload the dishwasher after preparing meals and try to help us stay organized around the house.
Positive and professional attitude, friendly and courteous nature and strong organizational skills are required. Applicant must have significant experience with children and excitement towards helping children learn and explore the world. Ability to swim and comfort in the water with kids is preferred. Knowledge of and/or fluency in a foreign language(s) (preferably Spanish) is a bonus. We are looking for at least a 1-year commitment though a longer commitment would be wonderful.
Reliability, safety and trustworthiness are of utmost importance.
First Aid and CPR experience preferred.

$16/hour (negotiable), semi-annual performance-based bonuses and negotiable benefits, reimbursement for miles driven with children
