A little bit about us…

We’re looking for a nanny who is child-focused, reliable, engaging, active, compassionate, gentle, cool under pressure, nurturing, and loving. We are looking for an experienced nanny with up-to-date certifications (infant CPR/FA, CPI) and all vaccinations including whooping cough, and Covid vaccinations (up-to-date boosters) to care for our 4-month-old daughter Juniper for 8 hours for 3 days a week, ideally Wednesday through Friday. The nanny will provide one-on-one care and meet the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs of the child while caring for her.

We seek a nanny that can create a consistent environment and provide customized and personalized childcare for Juniper. We also hope to hire an active nanny who is familiar with the area and proactive about activities both inside and outside of the house to keep Juniper engaged and stimulated.

My husband and I both work from home. They are a sound engineer with a home recording studio and I am a marketing project manager at Second Harvest of Silicon Valley and may have to go in to work occasionally. We have a small home so our nanny wouldn't just be a caregiver, they would become an extension of our family.

Hi! My husband and I just welcomed our second child a girl at the end of January. We also have a son Rhys is a wonderful happy energetic toddler. We have overly friendly pit bull mix puppy, so a dog person is a must. Other than being a dog person we are looking for someone with 5+ years experience, especially experience with infants. On top of child care we would like our nanny to do some light housekeeping and babies laundry. We like to think we are an easy going household, but we like to stay organized and tidy. My husband works from home mostly and I am currently taking some time off from full time work however I am a chef. When we aren’t working we like hiking, scuba diving and taking advantage of everything Santa Cruz has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hello -We are looking for a nanny in the Santa Cruz area starting in April to take care of my daughter Faye. We are looking for a part-time arrangement to start, switching to full-time after a few weeks as my wife returns back to work gradually. Ideally Monday-Friday 8-4ish. It would be wonderful if you have experience with infants and their development. We both will be working from home and Kate plans to continue breastfeeding. We live close to the ocean and eucalyptus grove for walks and exploration, which we love to do with her. We also have an Australian Shepard named Frida who would be hanging out at the house so hopefully, someone who loves pups:) CPR training and Spanish-speaking ability are bonuses!

A little bit about us…

Would love a funloving and silly nanny dedicated to our little baby girl Silvi. Silvi is a sweet baby who loves to laugh, eats anything, and sleeps like no other baby I know... we think she's perfect obviously. We also have a small dog Gidget who loves to be included and sticks close to her new little sister. We are hoping for a nanny that is very tidy, smiles a ton, loves to laugh, and go on adventures. We love hikes, beach walks at lowtide, and swimming in our hottub (kept at low baby friendly temp). We have the option of a live-in situation as we own a property with multiple units. Our neighborhood is quite wonderful, a block from the beach, and also plenty of walkable places like coffee shops, restaurants, markets, parks, and our favorite walk to Capitola Village.

What is an Infant Nanny in Santa Cruz, CA

An infant nanny is a nanny that specializes in caring for newborns. They are skilled in diapering and providing care for any rashes, swaddling, bathing, feeding, and burping. Some infant nannies further specialize in care for premature newborns or multiples.

Preparing for a Nanny Interview for an Infant Care Position

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is an infant nanny job interview. Here is a list of some infant nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What is your specific experience with this age group?
  • Are you Infant CPR/First Aid certified in Santa Cruz, CA? Are you willing to be trained?
  • How do you handle a crying baby?
  • How often do you usually offer parents updates during the day?
  • What do you feed an infant? At 0-3 months? 3-6 months? 6-9 months? 9-12 months?
  • How do you set up the infant’s crib for a nap?
  • What kind of activities will you plan to engage my baby?

You should be prepared with your references for past nanny jobs, and ideally, past infant jobs. Prior to the infant nanny interview, be sure to think about questions that you might have for the family. This is a great time to ask questions about the responsibilities and compensation for the infant nanny position. To make sure everyone has a shared understanding of the role and responsibilities, we recommend asking for a job offer or a nanny contract. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
