The Baylor Family - Hiring in Tacoma

The Baylor Family

Tacoma, WA
2 kids
A little bit about us…
The Baylor family is looking for a dedicated, reliable, and enthusiastic nanny to assist with two fantastic children, a six-year-old girl entering first grade, and a five-year-old boy getting ready to kick off his Kindergarten year. Our daughter is a fan of arts and crafts, yet she is equally at ease playing sports and getting dirty. On the other hand, her younger brother has a vast interest in cars, legos, and superheroes and possesses an incredible imagination.

Both children will be attending the same school, and we've always received positive reports from their previous sitters and care providers. Our household thrives within a structured, yet friendly and active environment where we love spending quality time together.

The nanny’s main tasks will involve picking up the kids from afterschool care, transportation to and from afterschool activities and home, helping them kick off their homework or engage in other activities once at home. You will also be required to prepare snacks and perhaps dinner and, on occasion, assist with bedtimes.

The work hours will ideally comprise a minimum of three days per week, from 4 pm to 7 pm, with the need to extend until 9 pm on several occasions within the month. If desired, we are also flexible enough to adjust this timeframe to offer more hours depending on the need. Such an arrangement would involve additional help with light housecleaning, meal preparation, and possibly running a few errands.

Additional requirements include being proficient in spoken English, possessing a valid driver’s license, owning a car, and having valid certifications in first aid and CPR. Apart from this, experience in meal preparation and light housekeeping will also be necessary.

Overall, we are seeking a caring, passionate individual who loves working with children and can easily fit into our family dynamic. If you believe you fit this description, kindly get in touch. We look forward to meeting you.

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 Tacoma. 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.
