Motivated and Energetic Nanny (27713)
Updated: Oct 6
Select Sitters is seeking an energetic, motivated, and dedicated nanny for a family in Durham starting soon. The family just welcomed their second baby in late September. He is snuggly and learning how to bottle feed so they are hoping for a nanny with experience with handling breast milk. Big sister is 2 and is sweet, funny, and independent. She is just beginning to test boundaries and working on potty training. The family is looking for someone who is mature and patient to care for their toddler and infant with love and respect. They prefer to offer natural consequences, love, and to create realistic expectations for their toddler. The family will need assistance with transporting their oldest to preschool so the nanny must have a reliable vehicle with room for car seats. They would love a nanny who is creative and engaging and would enjoy planning enrichment activities. The family also has a small dog who needs a mid-day walk. The children are the primary focus, however, if time allows, they would appreciate help with the children’s laundry, cleaning bottles and dishes from meals, and occasionally help with unloading the dishwasher. They are looking for someone who is interested in collaborating with the parents and respecting their preferences as well as offering suggestions.
The typical schedule will be Monday-Friday 7am-5pm and will average 45 hours a week. They are asking for flexibility and understanding as both parents are physicians and at times may need to stay later. They are big advocates of communication and will let their nanny know immediately in these instances. They are seeking a long-term nanny and ideally someone who is interested in multiple years with their family. They are willing to wait for the right fit, but also welcome the help ASAP. They have flexibility with their start date through December.
Ideal Candidate Will Have:
-5+ years of professional experience
-Experience with infants and toddlers
-Reliable Transportation & Room for Car Seats
-Fully Vaccinated (COVID Vaccine, flu vaccine)
-CPR/First Aid Certification
-Ability to Commit Long-Term
