Both parents work from home on a hybrid schedule, so one parent will likely be home at any given time. However, they will be working in an office space separate from the main living areas, and the nanny will sometimes be responsible for drop off and pick up of the toddler at school. 

Their youngest daughter is smiley, attentive, and friendly. She has a health condition that required surgery, but does not require ongoing active care.

  • General monitoring of the infant’s medical condition with expeditious communication and action to the parents or doctor should she have particular symptoms
  • Tidying of spaces used throughout the day 
  • Daycare drop-off and pickup for the toddler

Nanny Attributes/Qualifications/Requirements:

The family is looking for someone who ideally has multiple years of experience with infants and toddlers. They should be proactive, responsible, engaging and nurturing, with an eye for detail.
