Looking for a live-in nanny to help us through the craziness of COVID. Our 5 year old uses a manual wheelchair, has ADHD, and ODD (likely), she is silly, energetic, and loving. Our 2 year old is precocious, loves the outdoors, and is learning so fast. Our ideal nanny will work with us to separate out child care duties, housework duties, and become part of the family for the duration of their stay. We are an open minded home, and respect the private time of our nanny. We are assuming the hours would be M-F, 7:30-3pm, with some additional hours depending on what our fall schedules look like. We would like for you to have your own car - our area is not walkable, and we want you to have a social life in addition to needing some way to get Casey to whatever activities you think would be a good fit for her while Alicia is (hopefully) in kindergarten full day. Alicia may also need rides to appointments some days. Overall, I try to be a very organized person when managing the schedules in the house and spend a ton of time advocating for my medically and behaviorally complex kid. If you are willing to help me keep track of what needs to be done, or just cook dinner while I do that work, you'd be a godsend. We have no pets, but do have doggie visitors, so dog friendly is a must!

Overall, we are looking for a 3rd adult who is a direct communicator (because who has time for anything else), is willing to be flexible, and has an organized mind to help keep track of what needs to be done so that we can do better for our kids than we are now. In return, room & board, pay, and lifelong appreciation. We are open to having a student as well so long as the schedules can be managed, and would love someone who is interested in working with people with physical or special needs.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Connecticut

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 Connecticut. 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.
