The Allen Family
Country Club, Los Altos$25/hr  |  3 kids
Let me know if this is suitable:
We lost our amazing au pair (after having 4!) over the summer and while we are not in the market for another live-in au pair or full-time nanny we are in search of an complement to our young family in Los Altos to help us through the year.  We are a high energy family of 5: dad is in tech investing, mom is managing most of the things at home while also finishing her doctoral dissertation and we travel a fair amount (incl Palm Springs when it cools down). With school not really back to normal/in person we especially need help watching over our little boy Pierce (16 mos; active boy opening everything), while the two older girls are doing their school (currently one is showing up at the physical school and in school till 12:30, the other girl is working virtually at home till early afternoon).

- Attentive babysitter / half-time nanny who can help us get going in the morning and help Grace (the 6 year old) start her virtual school day- Ability to take direction and adapt to change since every day is a bit different- Open to picking up toys/cleaning up/kid's laundry when Pierce is sleeping- Plus if you can help with occasional STEM projects, and math exercises with the girls
- Targeting 4 days per week:
  - Mon and Tues: 7:30a - 3:30 (8 hr)
  - Th and Fri: 9-2p (5 hr/day)
  - We can commit to 26hr/week but are open to adjusting based on your schedule/needs
  - Occasionally other times for date nights, ad hoc childcare etc
- If you require a full-time job, we are open to a 'nanny share' splitting with a nice family down the street that is also in search of a 20-25 hr/week nanny
- $25/hour negotiable

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Los Altos, 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 Los Altos. 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.
