The Brooks Family
Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Washington$12.50/hr  |  1 kid
Hello! We are in search of a nanny for our son beginning March 2019. He'll be 6 months at that time. We'd ideally like to nanny share with someone who lives close to us (Congress Heights, SE DC), but would be willing to also share with a family in Capitol Hill (that's where our 2nd grade daughter attends school). We are looking for a full-time nanny (roughly 830-530) who has strong experience with infants and their developmental needs (developmentally appropriate games, milestones, proponent of early literacy, provides structure and routines, and is very caring and compassionate). If this sounds like a match, we look forward to hearing from you soon!

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 District of Columbia. 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.
