A little bit about us…I’m a former nanny (10+ years) and preschool teacher who understands intimately both sides of the nanny/parent relationship. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and am one class shy of finishing my Masters in Early Childhood Education. My dream job would be a lab assistant to Alison Gopnik ;-). We really strive to make our nannies feel more than just comfortable in our home…we hope to make them a lifelong member of our family.
Nanny position open beginning mid-July for a family in Palms/Mar Vista (Los Angeles, CA). 3 boys, ages 11, 6, and 3. Must drive for school/activity pick ups/drop offs. Wed-Saturday, hours negotiable (possibly negotiable on days). MUST have a background in RIE and/or extensive understanding of Visible Child. ( Please do not apply if you do not have knowledge of, and experience implementing at least one; preference given to VC given the ages of the children). Bonus points if you are familiar with any of the works of: Ross Greene, Dr. Dan Siegel, Alison Gopnik, etc. Extra consideration given to former preschool or early ed teachers who may have lost jobs during the pandemic. Must be excited and enthusiastic about child development (and willing to talk to mom about it ad nauseum!) . Primarily child care only-some basic clean up of child-used spaces and dishes/laundry, but no significant house cleaning. All taxes covered, paid sick and personal days, paid holidays, $25/hr net pay (non-negotiable-this is the family's upper limit, but please not that this is NET, and because we cover all taxes, it comes closer to $30+ an hour gross pay). Family can provide excellent references from past nannies (this is an opening due to a family event/ moving out of state for the current nanny, and everyone's heart is breaking about the loss).
