The Stalker-Lehoux Family
Washington$22/hr  |  2 kids
We’re currently looking for a nanny for two toddler boys. Our families are observing social distancing and we would like to find a nanny who can do the same, so having a car is essential. We are looking for a FT schedule, from approximately 8:30am-5:00pm. We can pay $22/hour and $33 for OT (everything over 40 hours). We need to pay a nanny on the books/legally and we’re seeking a contract until September 2021, with an opportunity to extend if interested. Most importantly, we want to find a loving nanny that likes to do an array of activities with the kids including reading, arts & crafts, and other creative activities that help encourage the development of the boys imagination. We are also a bilingual household so we are hoping to find a French speaking nanny, but that is not a necessity. We hope to talk to you soon!

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Washington, DC

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 Washington. 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.
