Our little girl is Ella! She is super sweet, very active & playful. Her birthday is 3/29/19. She’s a pretty good eater and has a great temperament. She’s not potty trained but will be most likely be ready, soon. She’s clever and picks up words and new things pretty quickly!

We’re looking for three days a week from 8:30 to 4:30. Her grandmas watch her on Friday.

We have an English Bulldog and a cat. The pup is pretty snuggly and loves people. He gets excited with new people and then calms down.

We would want you to be hands on and phone free while you are taking care of her. We’ll give you ideas for lunch but feel free to get creative. While she naps for 2-3 hours we’ll occasionally have some laundry to fold and then before you leave just tidy her play space. Other than that feel free to entertain yourself while she sleeps!

We’re in our mid 30s, both entrepreneurs, laid back and easy going. Our only expectations are that you are engaging and kind and can keep the place somewhat tidy before leaving for the day!

our family is so great because our focus is on core values: love, respect, and kindness. We believe in raising well behaved children where they learn that there is a time for everything- play, laughter, and love. our oldest daughter loves to cook, bake, paint, and read. our younger son loves story time, playing with action figures, and chasing his older sister.

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 Santa Cruz. 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.
