The Buran Family
Alexandria$20/hr  |  2 kids
My husband and I are working professionals, and he travels for work about 1-2 weeks a month. We both take the train to work, so we are looking for someone who is able to come to our home in Alexandria.

We have a 1yr daughter, Morgan, and are expecting our second child this July. Thus, we are looking for someone to start September/October when I go back to work.

Morgan is a very outgoing, happy child. She loves to laugh, dance, and meeting new people. On walks, she is constantly waving at everyone that we pass. Her favorite artists are Aretha Franklin and Ariana Grande. Morgan is close to walking but confidently climbs stairs and is constantly on the move.

Flexibility is very important to us, especially when Brian is on travel. Typical schedule will be normal working hours (8-5), but we are flexible with this. Also, a plus would be someone who could work until 6:30 on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays so that we may attend a yoga class at our gym. Our nanny should be able to climb a flight of stairs and also be comfortable with dogs (we have a small very friendly dog).

Our family leads an active lifestyle. Brian and I run long distance races; we love to go hiking/camping; and can often be found in out in VA winecountry. We also travel both domestically as well as internationally.

We also have a second home in Hilton Head, SC that is walking distance to the beach. Although not a requirement, a plus would be someone who is able to, on occasion, travel with us there in a work/vacation capacity.

Our family is new to Alexandria, VA from Frederick, MD. We are a Christian family, I am a first time mom and work full time in DC, my husband works from home so help is greatly appreciate for our young daughter. Baby Ava is super friendly and eager to learn. Our family has Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean, and Italian roots so any of these languages can be spoken with baby Ava in addition to sign language and Spanish.

We would hope to find a nanny to help care, feed, play, and teach our little one. We’ve never hired help before and we are open to negotiate time and pay.

We’re super excited to find a nanny to part of our family and our daughter’s life. Hope to meet you soon!

Hi! Looking for a part-time nanny or maybe a nanny share (either 2-3 days a week or everyday with nanny supervising multiple children) for our baby girl - likely starting in October or November. We are looking for the right nanny, other family, and situation, and are quite flexible on the days, etc. that ends up being.

We are hoping to find someone energetic who will expose our baby to sights and sounds outside the home (visit parks, museums, etc.) and willing to spend a lot of time talking, singing, and reading to baby.

Our work balance is flexible, so the days/hours can be flexible as well as weeks (or even months, as requested) off during the year.

Baby will be around 5 months and likes to be held and go outside to see things, but is otherwise very easy going.

Would be a plus if nanny is willing to unload dishwasher and complete some basic errands.

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.

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 Alexandria. 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.

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.
