The Harar Family
Alexandria$10/hr  |  2 kids
My daughter is a sweetheart. She’s in preschool until 2022 when she begins kindergarten. She’ll have half day of school 3 days a week. My smart son is in Kindergarten and is largely gone throughout the day. I’m looking for someone to take them to school at 7:30 am and then pick them up at 11:30 (her) and 3pm (him). She also has ballet one day a week. The hours are 7:30-4:15pm. I’d also appreciate meal prep for school lunch, snacks and kids’ laundry. They’ve been watched until now by a stay-at-home mom and her two children so they’re very social. We’re looking for someone with a car and drivers license.
The Buran Family

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.
The Anderson Family
Alexandria$18/hr  |  1 kid
We are looking for a full time nanny for our active toddler (15 months old). Care would be in our home – we have a large yard and live in a safe, walkable neighborhood. Our daughter loves being outdoors and music – We try to limit screen time -- I am hoping to find someone who will engage her with outdoor play, singing songs, reading , creative play etc.

A few things (I’ve learned to mention these upfront!):

1. We are looking for someone who is taking social distancing seriously

2. You will need your own transportation – I am not comfortable with someone taking rideshares or public transportation (because of COVID)

3. It is important that we be able to use a payroll service to pay you, with federal and state taxes withheld.

4. We have a dog – he is very friendly and low key. We ask that you let him out into the yard a few times daily.

5. Both my husband and I work from home – but will be out of the way – the whole 1st floor is “babyland” for the nanny and our daughter.

6. We are looking for 40 hours a week – with Monday and Tuesday 8am-5:30pm, and then Wed-Friday are a little more flexible, but in general
Wednesday 8:00-5, Thursday 8-2 and Friday 8-2.

7. We are looking for someone who will do some light housework – wash dishes, load and unload dishwasher, put away food, wipe down table and counters, laundry (move loads through cycle and fold) and food preparation for child

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.

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:

  • 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.
