Seeking a calm, gentle, and thoughtful nanny for a family living in Flatiron. You will have full-charge care of two children, a 3-year-old and a 7-month-old. The parents are flexible with the schedule and can offer as much as 50 hours per week or as little as 35 hours per week, Monday through Friday, but you must be able to end at 7pm 3-4 nights per week. They can settle on the exact schedule with their chosen nanny. Their ideal nanny will be meticulous and patient, mature and transparent, and proactive and intellectual. You must have a US college degree, should have experience with both toddlers and infants (even better if at the same time with one family), and should be flexible to travel to the Hamptons for 1-2 weeks 2-3 times per year.

A family in Long Island City is looking for a full-time nanny for their infant and toddler. The schedule is Monday through Friday, 8am-6pm. The ideal candidate would live close enough for the family to be able to pick up or drive to the position. The ideal candidate should live alone or live in a household with low risk and that is taking social distancing seriously. The family is also open to a candidate who lives-in/live in an apartment nearby that the family would rent (for a live-in, the family prefers a person that is comfortable driving as well). Ideally the nanny would be willing to do child-related home tasks (healthy cooking and cleaning up from meals; washing and organizing clothes; etc.), be collaborative on schedule and balance routine with new experiences, and enjoy reading and being outside with the kids. They are looking for a positive and loving nanny who is empathetic and can be engaged with the infant as well as their toddler. The ideal nanny is loving, attentive, and respectful to children, and is able to independently handle two children. The nanny must be fully vaccinated, including the flu shot. The oldest child suffers from cat & dog allergies, so the nanny can not have a cat or dog of her own (the dander can cling to the clothes).

If you are interested in this position and have a US Passport, Green Card, or EAC, please apply online to DL214.
