We are a busy, modern family! We have a 9 month old, 12 year old and 14 year old. My husband and I run a research organization, a tech start up and manage properties around the world among other projects. We work out of a home office, but my husband travels a lot. We are looking for a nanny is experienced and professional but also can be part of our family. We can offer live in accommodations or we are flexible with another arrangement. Care will be focused on the 9 month old as he needs the most attention throughout the day while the older kids are at school and we try to work from home!
The Kempe Family
Bristol$15/hr  |  1 kid
Live in nanny needed to drop our daughter off at school or camp monday thru thursday and some fridays and pick her up at the end of the day and stay with her until her mom gets back from work. Must be ok with dogs. The reason we are looking for a live in nanny is because mom needs to leave for work between 4-5am and dad is going to be out of state monday to thursday and some fridays so we would require someone to be present in the mornings from 4am but only working for about an hour to get her to school at 8am then they would be off until pickup time at about 3pm. Then working until mom gets home by 8pm usually between 6-7.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Rhode Island

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 Rhode Island. 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.
