Find a nanny job in Richmond, VA

The Gibson Family
Richmond$14/hr  |  2 kids
We are looking for a nanny to begin around August 31 to help care for two little girls during the day through enriching and fun activities. Harper is a five year old who will start kindergarten virtually this year and will need help being monitored while in class sessions or working independently. Rowan is a three year old who will need some enrichment with provided age-appropriate activities while continuing to work on potty training. Rowan will also be expected to take daily afternoon naps (or have quiet time). When the children are not working on structured activities, we are hopeful that they will have opportunity to play or engage in creative activities. We have a fenced in backyard with a swing set, slide, and sandbox, and there is also several natural trails and a big lake within walking distance of our house!

I (the mother) am a teacher and will hopefully be teaching virtually from home, but will often be unavailable to attend to the children's needs while teaching. My husband also has some flexibility in his hours worked on site, so he may be in and out of the house. Once we get a more clear idea of the expected hours of Harper's school schedule as well as our work schedules we can give a more definitive expectation of hours per week, but we are expecting four-five days a week for anywhere from 20-30 hours a week, possibly more.

In addition to childcare, we would like some light cleaning as preparation of meals (lunch and possibly breakfast) for the girls.

As an added note, we have two dogs (a pug/beagle mix and a German Shepherd). There is no expectation of care for the dogs, besides occasionally letting them in and out of the house or giving them water. Both dogs are very friendly, but the German Shepherd is BIG.

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 Richmond. 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.
