The Coomber Family
Northeast Washington, Washington$14/hr  |  4 kids
We are a busy family in Washington DC with four active boys who are currently in virtual schooling. We are looking for someone to support our family in helping with homeschooling, light household chores, and generally being a loving companion for the boys. Right now, the older boys are in a "pod" with two other families three days a week and the twins are home those days. We expect that as things start to open up, we will have more drop-off and pick-up activities for the boys. Mom is a professor at the University of Maryland and dad is an attorney. Right now we are all at home, but Mom goes to work a few days a week and we have a separate office where the parents work. Our ideal situation is a live-in nanny who would be part of our family! We have had au pairs for years and are considering alternative options to au pair care.

We are looking for a great nanny for our almost 1-year-old daughter. My husband and I live in Washington DC with our almost 3-year-old who attends daycare/school. We are a friendly, close knit and good humored family who follow COVID protocols (masks, social distancing, only essential indoor activities). We are looking for a nanny who is seriously following COVID precautions and can help give our daughter affection and attention as we work remotely. We are flexible on timing and thinking PT from 12-5. We would love someone who could help out with light housekeeping/laundry/meal prep for the kids. We would prefer a nanny who has their own car, who does not smoke, who is willing to drive children and who is CPR certified.

In search of a nanny share. Open to possible live-in option. Starting September 2020. Single parenting my now 2-week old daughter during the week while my partner works out of state.
The Erickson Family
Northwest Washington, Washington$16/hr  |  1 kid
We are looking for a family to join a nanny share, starting in December or January. Our previous family got into their work daycare, and it was a great experience. Ideally we’re looking for a child that's a similar age (turned 3 this July), but we are open to other ages. Also, happy to host, as our house is spacious for kids to run around.

Our nanny is wonderful. She takes her job very seriously and treats our child as if her own. She has been with us 3 years, and has made our lives easier: she is caring, disciplined, and low-drama; we trust her like family. She is always on time and responds to calls and texts timely, and always positive around children. She sings, reads, cooks fresh food for the kids, teaches yoga, and does not rely on electronics/screen time. She takes the children to the library for story time, does art projects, and takes the children to the park..

She is a permanent resident and native Hindi speaker (we speak Hindi and English to our child).

How to Find Live-In Nanny Jobs in Washington, DC

Are you a nanny looking for a live-in nanny job? Nanny Lane is a nanny website to help you find a live-in nanny job in your area.

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.
