A little bit about us…
Max will be entering 3rd grade and Zofia will enter into 1st grade this fall. We are looking for a nanny who can work 7am until 8:45am when the kids get dropped off at school and then again from 2pm until 5:30pm after the kids are out of school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. We would love for our nanny to watch the kids full-time during Thanksgiving break (1 week), Christmas break (3 weeks), Spring Break (2 weeks), and the Summer (6-8 weeks). My husband and I both work in healthcare and our days off are limited.
We nanny share with my husband’s sister and brother-in-law. My husband’s sister has two girls Ally (age 2) and Cailin (11 months). The girls are dropped off at our house 2-3 days per week from about 7am to 5pm. When Max and Zofia are not in school they play all day with their cousins. The kids all get along great. It is important to both families to keep the kids together.
The job would entail cooking for the children, assistance with packing school lunches, dropping the kids off at school and pickup, and taking the kids to do fun activities during school breaks. When the older kids are at school and the girls are in the nanny’s care cooking meals, naps, playtime, park adventure, and library classes would expected. Both family’s value indoor and outdoor play with toys, music, reading, and arts. Screen time will be limited and this includes tablets, TV, and video games. Both sets of parents also enjoy the occasional date night and having a flexible nanny is great.

Location: El Cajon, CA (Max/Zofia) and San Diego, CA (San Marcos area) for Ally and Cailin. The kids all stay at Max/Zofia's house.

Pay: For Max and Zofia the weekly pay rate is $450 for roughly 20hrs work which equals $22.50 per hour. For the two girls (Ally and Cailin) pay is hourly $36/hr. Typically, the girls join in two days per week for about 8hr each day which averages out to $576 per week. Total weekly pay averages $1,026.
