A little bit about us…
We need someone to care for our sweet and super smart 18 month old! Looking for a mother’s helper type person as well who is up for helping me with some meal prep and light cleaning when I am around to play/feed/comfort her. Otherwise when I am gone, I’d love someone who can play with her, give her a nap, prep food, clean up her areas, and treat her with respect :) We use montessori and RIE-based methods with her!
We also use some sign language and would love for her to learn another language like Spanish!

Anywhere from 5-8 hours 2-4x per week
Starting anywhere from 6a-8a

I’d love help with prepping food, engaging her in play and learning activities (love Montessori and RIE, we use sign language too with her), encouraging independent play, organizing/cleaning up her things, naps, etc

I might be home but in another room to get some work done, take a nap, eat in peace (lol) or go for a walk or run an errand but she is still breastfed (I can put some in bottles too and see how much she drinks with you!) and we rock/hold her for naps so not sure if you ever babywore or have experience with it.. or maybe she would sleep differently with you!

It would be awesome if some days when you get here in the morning (possibly a little early like 6-7) you could help us by making breakfast! Like oatmeal or eggs or something vegan/Dairy free (I can’t have dairy for her) healthy and delicious that you come up with! And possibly help prep dinner or something before you leave (if I am nursing her or give her a nap and you’re here).

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Costa Mesa, CA

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 Costa Mesa. 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.
