Extremely busy working mom looking for a PART-TIME NANNY for their give kids (10 year boy/girl Twins 8-year old boy girl twins and one 4 year old girl). The kids are in school until 3pm every day. The afternoons are busy with after school activities and homework. They are looking for an energetic, fun, loving nanny that can manage the fine line between being the kids friend and a respected adult responsible for their care and well-being. They are seeking someone creative that is willing to play with the kids, and engage with them. You must be able to help with homework, but not "do" their homework. You will be there to remind the kids to pick up their dirty clothes, but not do it for them. Must know when to be fun and games, and when it’s time to enforce the rules. They have strict policies about limited sugar and TV / screen time on weekdays, they are looking for a nanny that will support our choices and enforce them. The biggest challenge will be knowing how to keep the youngest engaged during homework time for the older kids. You will need to be comfortable with a loving, chaotic household. They are a big family, there are often friends over, it can be noisy, but its an organized chaos. You must be able to stay calm, and be very comfortable with multi-tasking. The right nanny will be willing to work in partnership parents and their housekeeper. You are not responsible for their German Sheperd but you must be comfortable around the dog! Extra hours / weekend hours may be requested but are optional.
Ideal candidate arrives an hour before school pick-ups to prepare snacks and the gear and equipment for after school activities (baseball bag, tennis stuff, etc). From 3PM to approximately 6PM there is a lot of driving to and from activities, and homework. You will be provided with a nanny vehicle to use while on the job (minivan). Once everyone is back home toward the end of the day, the job is to supervise homework, showers and help prepare kids lunches for the next day. The boys go to one school and the girls another, so the afternoons are divided. Mom stops working in time to help with school pick-ups, and driving to after school activities, so each day you and her will split up the driving responsibilities. Once the kids are all home, homework is done and everyone is showered, the housekeeper will serve dinner to the kids. While the kids eat, you are responsible for preparing lunches and making sure their backpacks are ready for the next day. The job is done at 7pm when this is all complete!
