I have a daughter with cystic fibrosis and my son is high functioning autism with Auditory Processing. We run a strict schedule and after the initial run through, my kids are actually pretty easy to work with. My son can be challenging at times. I work during week 9-6 with some exceptions. There are three to four times a year I have a business trip over night two to three days and once a month I have to work till 9.

We are looking for an active nanny or live-in nanny who loves nature, animals, exercise, fun above all, and teaching. Our daughter, Honey, is a busy 2 year old who enjoys going on nature walks, exploring, creating, and learning about the world. She’s a ball of energy and naturally curious about all things. You would work from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday (sometimes earlier or later with occasional weekends depending on the day) at our home close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You would be in charge of preparing and feeding her healthy meals during lunch and snack time as well as keeping her busy with fun activities and learning experiences. TV is kept to a bare minimum except during lunch occasionally. We are currently expecting baby #2 this December so we would need your help preparing Honey for the new addition. We have 3 large, sweet, indoors dogs so a dog-lover is a must! Our nanny will have a bedroom and bathroom on his/her own floor separate from the rest of the house with access to a TV/living room area as well as home gym. We ask that candidates have previous nanny experience and a bachelors and/or associates degree.

Gatlinburg$17/hr  |  2 kids
We are moving to my wife’s hometown of Gatlinburg in September from San Antonio, TX. We have a 2 year old daughter and a boy due to arrive on Christmas Day. We would need help during the weekdays and occasionally on the weekends. We would prefer a live in nanny. Responsibilities would include taking care for our daughter from 9AM to 5PM at our house Monday through Friday, so it would include making lunch and afternoon snacks, coming up with fun activities during the day for her to enjoy while also making them educational and keeping things active. Being active is very important to my wife and I, screen time here and there is okay, but we really want someone who will read with her, teach her things, and get outside with her to explore and have fun. Ideally we would want someone who could “lead by example” when it comes to living a healthy, active life, as our daughter is full of energy and very adventurous. Once our boy arrives, there would be additional help needed with preparing things for feedings and assisting my wife with various things throughout the house. We hope to find someone who can work with us long term and really become a part of our family. It is important that you are comfortable with dogs as we have 3 large Indoor dogs that are incredibly sweet.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Tennessee

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 Tennessee. 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.

How to Interview for a Nanny Job in Tennessee

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.
