Knowledgeable + Collaborative Infant-Experienced Nanny Needed For Newborn in CA!

 

 

 

A busy, warmhearted family in Silicon Valley is seeking a knowledgeable, kind, open-minded, and adaptable nanny/doula/newborn care specialist to care for their newborn expected in June! They are excited to find the perfect candidate to join them in welcoming the newest member of their family for a 6 to 12-month contract depending on candidate availability. 

 

 

Though a bustling, full-staffed household, this family has created a home environment that is full of compassion and fun. Collaboration and an all-hands-on-deck spirit is highly valued when working alongside this warm family and their team. Though this is not their first child, the family thoroughly enjoys collaborating with their caregiving staff, and are excited to find the perfect candidate with a “step in” and “step out” intuition to uphold their values and contribute their own meaningful skills to their family culture.

 

 

The ideal candidate for this position will be smart, collaborative, flexible, and have a pitch-in attitude and easygoing spirit. Good communication skills are essential in working alongside the family and their staff and contributing to the efficiency of the household. A spotless driving record is essential as running occasional errands related to their baby will be expected and appreciated. This family also has older children who are cared for by a second nanny. Though this candidate’s primary focus will be caring for the baby, occasionally spending time with the family’s older children will also be expected and appreciated. Most of all, a commitment to their baby’s growth and development will be at the heart of this role; this family is hoping to find a nanny who is excited to be along for the journey, to grow alongside them, and to positively impact their baby’s life during these first months. 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a full-time, live-out position with hours generally falling from 8am to 6pm Mondays through Fridays. Flexibility to provide occasional overnight care will also be appreciated. The family is offering $35 to $40/hour for this 6-to-12-month contract with the opportunity to extend for the right candidate. They are excited to find the perfect candidate to join their family as soon as their newborn comes home in June.
