Hello! My husband and I are both in the restaurant industry- he is a chef and I am a front of house operator. My baby is due May 5 and we are having a girl, her name is not yet determined. We just moved into our house in Woodridge, next to Brookland, and are excited about how the neighborhood is developing, and to raise our kids here.
We are trying to sort out childcare and will have slightly more unique hours than the traditional 9-5. However, we also have some flexibility since we will be working on weekends at times and not always during the week. Ideally we'd love to have someone grow to be a part of our family for 40-50 hours a week, most likely Tuesdays through Saturdays, but again, with flexibility. The hours would most likely be around 9am-6pm, or noon-8/9pm.
I'd like to work with someone who has a few years of infant & toddler experience and who has their driver's license and ideally a car as well. Pick up and drop off details we are open to.
I have friends who have had good experiences with nanny shares and am very interested in being a part of one! I look forward to meeting you!

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Washington. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

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

  • What do you think children like best about you?
  • What kind of activities will you do with children this age?
  • How do you handle problems that arise behaviorally and emotionally with kids this age?

Beyond answering 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.
