Family in south-central Austin is seeking an energetic and creative nanny for their baby. Nanny must be confident, capable, and experienced in all areas of baby and toddler care including feeding, diapering, putting down for nap time, etc. (child is on a schedule). The ideal candidate will engage the baby in indoor and outdoor activities that encourage growth and development, such as assisting with mobility and speech, inspiring curiosity by carrying him around to look at things, dancing to music, going on walks, etc. When he is sleeping, nanny should assist with household duties such as tidying common areas, cleaning bottles, loading/emptying the dishwasher, wiping down counters, child’s laundry, light meal prep (cooking is a big bonus), etc. The ideal candidate will be mature, be seeking a long-term position (as family grows), and demonstrate integrity, curiosity, and confidence. Bilingual Spanish is a plus, as well as the ability to travel from time to time. Communication, trust, and transparency are qualities that are valued by the family. There is a small dog in the home (3-year-old, 12lb Maltipoo) that the nanny will let in/out on occasion, and will take (leashed) on any walks with the baby. During a normal year, Nanny will be asked to travel with the family for 2 weeks or less, out of the year. Mom works from home, and Dad works primarily from outside office (with just one other person) and occasionally from home.
NOTE: Candidates must be following all procedures advised by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for Coronavirus exposure prevention outside of their work hours (masks, hand washing, limiting contact/group sizes, social distancing, etc.). Family has been following strict COVID-19 restrictions and are looking for someone who is committed to doing the same. Initial interviews will be conducted virtually using Facetime, Zoom, etc.
