Familiarity with Montessori is preferred as they like this approach. They would like someone who is able to follow directions and is a proponent of healthy habit formation early on. They would like daily structure but understand that flexibility is needed at times. The ability and passion to teach emotional regulation when their infant becomes a toddler are valuable to them. Experience with emotional development is a plus.  Extensive infant care experience is preferred.

The nanny should hold a valid driver’s license, have a clean driving record, and have a safe and reliable vehicle for driving on the job, and a car seat safety certification is preferred.

Detail-Oriented, Nanny/Family Assistant Needed in Kent
#ES0915

DETAILS:

•Location: Lakeland North Area border of Auburn/Kent/Federal Way, WA

•Ideal Start Date: September 2021/ASAP

Schedule: Flexible – need two days per week: Wednesday and/or Thursdays.  One 6-8 hour day is needed, and one 2-6 hour day, if the care provider’s schedule can accommodate. (Family is also open to some Monday or Friday care days if that worked for the provider. And, the family can also offer some occasional weekend and evening care opportunities if this worked for the provider.)

•Children: 3.5-year-old boy and 21-month girl

•Compensation: $20-23/hour with guaranteed hours

• Six months to one year minimum commitment is ideal.

***Must be legally authorized to work in the United States***

The Family:

This family of four is seeking a hard-working, industrious, kind, and conscientious nanny and family assistant to partner with! Seeking a provider who enjoys working with their gifts and talents of childcare and household management, and takes pride in being a hard worker who will ultimately help this family achieve more balance in their home and life.

The family considers themselves to be fairly traditional overall, and they strive to practice Respectful, Gentle, Attachment, and Simplicity Parenting philosophies.  They also integrate Montessori and Respect in Educare (RIE) approaches.  They prefer no screen or television time. 

They have fun-loving family culture, yet are very overwhelmed at this time and seeking more structure in filling this role to help facilitate a foundation of order and predictability in their home and family life. 

The parents are seeking support to ease the stress of feeling behind in the household and self-care management. A lot of big transitions have happened in a short time, such as a move, having two children in under 20 months, and having most of their existing support network move away.  They are hoping this care provider can help to provide much-needed” breathing room” and support in the form of childcare, tidying and organizing general household pick-up, and light cleaning. Possible help with vendor follow-up and appointment booking may be needed.

As this partnership and relationship between the caregiver/family assistant and parents/family progress, it immensely helps the family to have providers intuitively and instinctively know where they can best of value and help without being asked. Also, the willingness of the caregiver to ask questions or leave notes if they are unsure how to proceed is appreciated and valued by this family, as are lots of communication where needed/helpful.

The family will be having more children in the coming years and if the provider is looking for a longer-term role there will be many opportunities for this as more hours of childcare with the toddlers will be needed during pregnancy and when new babies arrive.

There is a fragrance sensitivity in the home (laundry, hair, skin products), so the family asks that their care provider not wear items with strongly scented detergents. Especially no dryer sheets or laundry fragrance “extenders,” as well as perfume. They would be happy to provide unscented detergent or provide a “uniform” for work if desired.   **Note: the family is NOT Covid vaccinated for any nannies who are not comfortable with this, but they are very Covid cautious.

The Job Description:

The nanny/family assistant will be responsible for ensuring a safe, respectful and caring environment for the children throughout the day.

The family is also strongly seeking help with household support.  As the children will often play independently nearby and do not need to be “entertained,” most times, the family deeply appreciates caregivers knowing how they can best help the family/household “move forward” and “keep up” with regular household needs and tasks.

Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Ensuring physical and emotional safety of children
  • Caring for children in a manner that is consistent with and upholds parenting and family values (gentle and respectful parenting) whilst also holding firm boundaries parents have indicated
  • Taking absolute ownership/pride/joy of home, space, and children from the moment they come to the front porch 
  • Taking the initiative to jump in and help set mom up for success by assisting her getting out the door/assessing what is needed for that (do children need immediate attention, help with gently transitioning mom leaving, keeping children engaged, etc)
  • Meal and snack prep being mindful of the family’s gluten and dairy-free diets; letting parents know if they notice food inventory low; dishes cleanup (dishwasher loading/unloading, hand washing needed items, putting dishes away after cleaning)
  • Diaper changes and potty assistance, including restocking diaper supplies and communicating with parents when stock is getting low, and keeping the bathroom area clean and tidy follow children’s use (and using children to help in these tasks where and when appropriate to help them learn to tidy after themselves in the bathroom).
  • Helping to keep play areas clean and tidy and involving the children with these tasks/“toy management” (helping to rotate toys in/out)
  • Laundry help: collect/start the wash, folding/putting away, etc
  • Daily tidying of any spaces used throughout the day (again, using kids’ help/teaching them to tidy if appropriate/if time or schedule allows, etc.)
  • Occasional additional household help with keeping floors clean (vacuuming, sweeping, mopping), tidying toys in the yard, taking out the trash, and other needed tasks or small projects (particularly if parents are home and the family assistant scope is more needed versus nanny/childcare).

Nanny Attributes/Qualifications:

The family would like to partner with an engaging, organized, and nurturing nanny who has at least two years of toddler and preschooler care experience, and who has experience with household assisting.  Familiarity with Montessori or Waldorf philosophies would be nice to have and if the caregiver also has knowledge about Respectful Parenting (RIE) or Simplicity Parenting that is a bonus. Parents are happy to help educate caregivers along the way, as well.

The nanny should be a non-smoker and be current CPR/First Aid Certification (or willing to update).  It is important to the family that they partner with a nanny who is taking Covid precautions, including masking, social distancing, and practicing stellar hand hygiene.  To note, the family is open to working with a nanny who is NOT vaccinated for Covid.
