Nurturing, Proactive + Educational UES Nanny Needed



A bustling family based on the Upper East Side is seeking a proactive and loving nanny to care for and be a role model for their bright and active daughters, aged 9 and 12 years old! 


As a family who is always on-the-go, they have lovingly put together a reliable, positive, and collaborative staff that works with care to keep their home running smoothly. Their two girls enjoy multiple activities and are very active and creatively-minded. They are hoping for a nanny who is a team player and can be both a beam of support for their family and a positive influence for their girls.


The ideal candidate for this position will be flexible, patient, creative, and have a pitch-in attitude. Someone who is excited and familiar with early childhood education will be highly valued, as the family hopes their nanny can provide homework assistance as well as create educationally enriching activities to partake in. As their girls begin to grow into their individuality, their parents’ number one priority is to find a nanny who can be a supportive, friendly, and nurturing role model. Being a home with many moving parts, a collaborative mindset and good communication skills will be essential in working alongside the parents and their wonderful staff. Someone who can lend a helping hand wherever necessary will be a valued asset to this family, such as assisting with meal prep, projects after the girls have gone to sleep, and running occasional errands.


This is a full-time, live-out position with schedule generally falling on Mondays through Fridays from 2pm to 10pm, with 40 hours guaranteed weekly. Flexibility to provide coverage during occasional weekends and when the family travels will be greatly appreciated. The family is offering $35-$40/hour, as well as a Metro Card and generous paid time off. They hope to find the perfect candidate to join their family as soon as possible!
