Hi! We are new parents with a 5-month old named Finn. We’ll need help taking care of him while we work from home about 2-3 days a week (typically Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, but days may vary depending on work). We’d also love someone who can do light housekeeping while taking care of baby. Thanks so much in advance!

Hello! I will be returning to work in SF in April. Our baby girl will be 5 months old by then. We are looking for a nanny who can work 8am-6pm for four or five days a week and is open to a nanny share situation with another family.

We are ideally looking for a nanny share with parents of other toddlers, or with a nanny who is already caring with another toddler or toddlers.

We are looking for full time care, but have flexibility. I (her mom) work full time, and my husband is an academic between jobs, so we can be a bit flexible on hours.

Our daughter Valerie is very kind and empathetic, but also can be boisterous and energetic, just like any 2-year-old. :) We have been living in the UK and are moving back to the Bay Area, so she has a slight British accent at the moment. Valerie has been in full time nursery/day-care during the week since she was 7 months old, and has been very happy in a social environment with other children. It would be ideal to find a situation with another 1-2 toddlers who are between 1 and 4 years old. (Valerie turns 3 years old in August 2019.) She loves painting, drawing, playing pretend and playing outside. She spends a lot of play time at home caring for her "babies" (dolls and stuffed animals), and takes a great interest in other toddlers both younger and older than her. She would do well with another 1-year old or with other 2 or 3 year olds, I think.

She has spent time (over holidays) with both dogs and cats, and does not have any cat/dog allergies. She has a sensitivity to peanuts (her eyes get swollen, mouth gets red) so we are avoiding nuts, per medical advice, to prevent a full peanut allergy.

On potty training: we did infant potty training, starting from a very early age. Valerie usually does well (goes without accidents) but if she is transitioning to a new environment, I'm sure she'll need time to adjust.

The Raymond Family
Lafayette$20/hr  |  1 kid
We are seeking a part-time nanny, who can reliably provide childcare Tuesday-Thursday, with flexibility for an additional half day-approximately 28 hours per week. We are both employed and live in a three-bedroom condo in Lafayette. 
The ideal candidate will have 3+ years of childcare experience, preferably with specific experience with infants 6-12 months old. We would love to find a nanny who can commit to stay with us for at least 6 months or more.

Familiarity with sleep training, post high school degree, and CPR and first-aid certification preferred. Must be a non-smoker.

Our family is very careful about COVID and does not socialize with others outside of immediate family who are also self-isolating. Applicant’s lifestyle should minimize COVID exposure including mask wearing in public, social distancing and living with individuals doing the same. 

Interested applicants should provide a brief resume, including their professional childcare experience, as well as two professional references.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Lafayette, 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 Lafayette. 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.

How to Interview for a Nanny Job in Lafayette, CA

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.
