SEATTLE NANNY JOBS

Beacon Hill Nanny Needed

A Beacon Hill family is looking for a nanny for their two children who are 6 (girl) and 8 (boy) for the hours after school, though if the provider is looking for more hours, they can happily accommodate up to 30 hours and would then include family assistant duties. Both children love spending time with their friends after school at the park near home and school. They both enjoy creative projects, such as drawing/coloring, painting, making collages or paper objects, building forts and block structures, reading, and imaginative play with each other. This family believes in respect for all people, which is achieved through listening to others and developing empathy. They are engaged in organizations and a church community that focuses on climate and social justice topics. They believe all people have a role in helping each other on our journey through the world in some way.

 

ABOUT THE NANNY:  They would love a nanny who is reliable, patient, firm yet kind, creative, and communicates comfortably with them. Their son has a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder. These conditions are often invisible to others, especially at school where he appears to excel. He has difficulty with loud/sudden sounds, some textures, and some gross motor coordination. He also internalizes a lot of stress from the school environment that displaces to the home setting and can show up as many behaviors, many of which are not disruptive, but occasionally he has bursts of aggression (yelling, defiance, throwing small objects) when faced with frustration or when he unexpectedly is asked to transition away from a preferred activity. He responds best to caregivers who recognize these difficulties and can have the patience and confidence to allow him a little extra time, space, and flexibility to transition on a gentler timeline whenever possible. A caregiver experienced with these similar behaviors, or who is open to collaborating on approaches to support him in working through these difficult moments would be ideal.

 

START DATE: As soon as the right person is available to start

DAYS/HOURS: Essential need is to be with children from school pick-up at 2:20p (Wednesdays at 1:20p) until 6p (5:30p on Wednesdays). The family is happy to provide up to a total of 30 guaranteed hours of childcare/household support with additional agreed-upon household support tasks (such as meal prep, shopping, pet support, or child-related cleaning/tidying tasks)

RATE:  Please share your asking rate in the application, this family is prepared to offer a competitive/market rate.

LONGEVITY: Ideally the next year

BENEFITS:

- Guaranteed hours

Gig Harbor Nanny - Family Assistant Needed

A family in the Gig Harbor area is looking for a professional nanny –  family assistant for their busy family of four, soon to be five, here in November.  The boys are 2.5 and 4 years old and are active little boys! They love running, chasing, climbing, building forts, and pretending to be in a new land.  You can find these two helping in the kitchen, as cooking and baking are a favorite of theirs.    Swim lessons are a big hit for these two, as are playing with their cars and making art.  Both boys enjoy music – dancing, singing, and even playing the piano or guitar. 

 

As a family, being in nature is essential to them, whether hiking, camping, gardening, going to new and old parks for walks, or going to the local farmers market for fresh fruits and veggies.  They do many house projects right now - assembling furniture, unpacking boxes, and organizing their home as they just moved into their new home. When life is calmer, they enjoy trying new restaurants, traveling, and visiting farms to see animals.  Celebrating the seasons and holidays is something they genuinely enjoy – you will find them at the pumpkin patch or Christmas tree farm or running around at Easter egg hunts. Lastly, they like going to cheer on the Mariners or Kraken teams and are excited for their children to learn some fun sports skills.

 

ABOUT THE NANNY:  Their new nanny should have an absolute love for the under-5 age group, someone able to see the world through the eyes of a 2 - 5-year-old, and someone who appreciates the learning and development of this developmental stage. This requires patience and a calm attitude/outlook, someone not easily bothered by tantrums or occasional bad behavior, with the confidence to manage it calmly, respectfully, and lovingly.  Ideally, they want a provider who will become an extended family member for all of them - someone who will be a significant adult in the kids' lives and bond with them, but also will be a gift to them as parents as well. Their nanny must be comfortable working alongside us, as we will essentially be here and doing regular activities most of the time the nanny is present. This will require excellent communication, the ability to conference with the parents and make suggestions or requests, and being flexible, and they commit to doing the same.

 

START DATE: December 2022 - Beginning  of January 2023

DAYS/HOURS: Around 20hrs a week, in an ideal situation the nanny could cover all school breaks, two to seven afternoons, late afternoons 5-8, and one weekend day. This is all very very flexible. Please share your availability in the application.

RATE:  Please share your asking rate in the application, this family is prepared to offer a competitive/market rate.

LONGEVITY: Part-time hours indefinitely, though by February 2022 they would know if this position could go FT in the summer, this depends on if and when mom goes back to work.

BENEFITS:

- Guaranteed hours

- Overtime

- Legally accrued sick leave

- Paid holidays

One of my favorite clients (now a friend) residing in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle is searching for a weekend nanny to help with their three adorable children. Their two girls are 7 and 5 years old, and their sweet little brother is 2. They are kind, silly, creative, and active little ones who all enjoy the outdoors. All three are full of personality and joy. They also have the absolute sweetest labradoodle. They are a busy family that you can find genuinely enjoying the PNW.

At home, they enjoy riding their bikes, roller-skating, baking, doing fun science experiments, and climbing trees at nearby parks.

 

ABOUT THE NANNY:  These little ones are looking for their new best friend!
