Warm, Developmentally-Minded Nanny Needed For Newborn In NYC


A positive, energetic family based in NYC is seeking a warm, developmentally-minded, passionate nanny to care for their newborn!


Based in the Upper West Side, these first-time parents welcomed the newest member of their family in late August. They describe her as sweet, cute, and easygoing; they are already starting to get some smiles! The family is focused on fostering positive energy and kindness in their home and are striving to raise their baby in this environment. These dual-career parents work in and out of the home, and have had newborn care for several weeks, which will be continuing until the end of November. They are excited to welcome an infant-savvy nanny to their home who can be a pillar of support and grow with their family and baby for years to come.


This position is ideal for a nanny who is enthusiastic about working with first time parents, and can act as a true partner in assuring their child is happy, having fun, and meeting all developmental milestones. They are excited to work with a nanny who is activity-oriented and proactive, always ready to come up with a fun activity both at home and in the neighborhood; this may include facilitating playdates, socialization, and researching and attending classes and adventures to enrich their baby’s growth. The family will also appreciate a candidate who is willing to jump in with child-related household tasks such as baby’s laundry, organizing, general tidying, and healthy meal prep/bottle preparation. The family is hopeful for a nanny who would be excited to grow with them for years to come, who may be interested in transitioning into a family assistant/household manager in the future, and genuinely loves helping raise children to feel confident, happy, and carry good values into their adulthood.
