A little bit about us…My wife and I both work full time. We have three children (ages 5, 3 and 2 months) and it would be helpful to have another pair of hands in the mornings (7-9 a.m. ) and then again after work (5-8 p.m.). (We might occasionally also need extra help on weekends or after the normal weekday shift but it would always be with advanced notice and not a regular weekly request.) The job would be part-housekeeper/part-childcare for a total of 30-35 hours.

We welcome someone who would like a special opportunity to live with a family rent-free. We welcome someone who loves children, who is willing to help out with chores or cooking or laundry or childcare (anything either of us might do to keep our home running smoothly).

The typical work day would mainly be free. Your room has a private bathroom and a mainly unused sitting area which would be yours alone in the mornings/evenings. The sitting area has a TV and WiFi. We are willing to provide amenities you may want such as a coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven and/or small fridge. If you have a car, we can also provide you with free on-street parking available right in front of our home. If you do not have a car, we are easy walking distance to the Metro.

Additionally, you will be compensated per hour for the number of hours you work. The compensation will be determined with consideration of the free living accommodation.

We are willing to speak to anyone who is interested in this situation, but we prefer a commitment of at least a year’s time. And if this works out for both of us and you wish to stay on, then the longer the better! Sorry, but we are unable to accommodate smokers or pets. We will also need to have at least two references, personal and work-related.

We hope we have given you something to think about. If this is not for you, maybe you know someone else who might be interested. Please feel free to forward this note to friends or family members. We are hoping to find someone as soon as possible.

What is a Live-In Nanny in Washington, DC

A live-in nanny provides in-home child care and resides with the family that they care for. They are usually full-time and sometimes support with housekeeping, errands and other household responsibilities. Some live-in nannies stay with their employer’s full-time or they live with their employer’s for a portion of the week and spend the other portion at their home. A live-in nanny schedule can include nights as needed like any other nanny job, however, the employer should always offer compensation for any additional coverage.

Types of Live-In Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Washington, DC

Before you start looking for a live-in nanny job, it's essential to make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities by learning about the different types of nanny jobs and how they compare to each other.

Most nanny jobs vary in responsibilities and time commitment (e.g. the number of hours worked each week or the length of the commitment). There are temporary live-in nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer live-in nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary live-in nanny positions, there are differences between full-time live-in and part-time live-in nanny jobs. Given that live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want, it's very important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

How to Interview for Live-In Nanny Jobs in Washington, DC

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a live-in nanny job interview. Here is a list of some live-in nanny interview questions you should ask:

  • Can you tell me about where in the house I will live? Will I have my own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc? Do I have my own entrance?
  • What are your expectations around the cleanliness and tidiness of my living quarters?
  • What level of privacy can I expect after hours?
  • Will I have a curfew in the evenings when I am in charge of the kids the next day?
  • Can I have guests over during my days off and only with the employers prior agreement? Am I allowed guests overnight?

Beyond asking these questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
