The Villarreal Family
Charleston Gardens, Palo Alto$25/hr  |  1 kid
Our son Benito is 15 months old, a sporty boy (he loves kicking soccer ball), and loves when he is read to, books over and over again!
Hours could be 4-6 hours per day (mornings and afternoons), ideally Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are flexible, at least 20 hours per week. We are open to nanny share, but prefer solo part time. We would want to host at our house where we have a nice yard for playing.

The Bowens Family
Palo Alto$17/hr  |  1 kid
We’re a very active family who loves to workout and be outdoors. We welcomed our first child into the world in September and it has been an adventure. I’m returning to work in January and would love to find a great caregiver near my job (in downtown Palo Alto) to take care of my blessing. Looking for someone who has experience with infants, loves to sing, read and go on walks with my little guy, cpr certified, as well as a companion to hang out with during the day.

The Vernon Family
Palo Alto$18/hr  |  1 kid
My baby girl is 7 months, she’s happy and sweet! Her father and i both work and need a little help each week as we try to split our schedules but find ourselves stretched too thin. We would like someone who is very interactive and spends time outside. Lots of reading and no TV. Someone with some background in child development would be great! We’re both very active, spend lots of time outdoors and with our families who are both local.
The Bose Family

My son is almost 7 months old now and we both are working parents. Looking for nanny share options near Palo Alto. I believe when kids are together they work upon their social skills which in turn boosts cognitive development. Looking forward to connect like minded parents in the neighborhood.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Palo Alto, 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 Palo Alto. 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.
