Find a nanny share in Seattle, WA

The Madden Family
Seattle$22/hr  |  1 kid
Hello! We are looking for a FT nanny to help out with our smiley baby girl Dylan who will be 6 months in late January. We are also potentially interested in finding a family for a nanny share.

Dylan is a playful, curious, sweet baby who’s in need of a loving, fun and engaging nanny to help her experience the world. My husband and I currently work from home due to COVID, so we are around to support at times. That said, our work is full-time and we fully realize that it might be easier for you to get acquainted with Dylan if we hide out in our rooms. We’re flexible and open-minded, so will rely on open communication with you to make things work well for everyone!

You’ll spend your days playing with Dilly girl and keeping her smiling. Apart from that, some light cleaning (i.e. bottles/dishes and occasional laundry) would be super helpful. We do have an affectionate 5 year-old rescue dog, but she won’t be your responsibility. We plan to have her in doggie daycare or otherwise out of the way.

We live on the east side of Phinney Ridge, a walkable neighborhood a couple blocks from Greenlake.

Pay: DOE; 40 hours/week

Start date:
Late January/early February - flexible for right fit

What we’re looking for in a nanny:
⁃3+ years childcare experience, including infant care
⁃CPR and First Aid certified for infants
⁃Drivers license with safe vehicle (we don’t go anywhere now, but could change at some point)
⁃Ability to come up with creative, engaging age appropriate activities
⁃Ability to prepare snacks and simple lunches once Dylan starts on solids
⁃Ability to help with very light housework
⁃Early childhood education experience is a big plus
⁃Enjoys getting outside
⁃Genuinely and passionately enjoys spending time with babies and young children

Please reach out if this sounds like a good fit for you!
