40TH ST AND CLARENDON: This wonderful busy professional returning family with a 2 1/2 year old daughter (3 yrs old in July)  is seeking a stellar nanny/ household manager to join their family for a flexible work week, that can be either part-time or full-time. Their top priority is finding the right fit so if 20 hrs are needed, they can work with part-time hours or can offer up to 36 hrs for the right candidate needing a full-time schedule.  They have a semi-formal atmosphere in their home and are desiring a nanny to grow with their family and commit to at least a year and is open to longer. Mom works from her home office M/W/F and from an office on T/Th and Dad typically goes to his office to work. Dad also frequently has evening commitments for work (which can be an opportunity to pick up hours).  Dad also travels for business. Travel is not required but there may be an opportunity to travel with the family 2 -3 times a year if nanny is available. Attention to detail, able to conform to their preferences, professional and punctual, education background a plus but not mandatory. Able to be loving and comforting but also firm when needed to build structure that aligns with how they parent. They were referred to Caring Nannies from one of our amazing longterm families. Ideal characteristics they are seeking: mature, dependable, respectful  of boundaries,  a good communicator, takes great initiative, and is creative. Their dog needs care throughout the week so must be a dog lover. (fed/walked, let in and out, etc) The parents are very particular with what their daughter eats and they want her to eat healthy nutritious meals 80% of the time. Their daughter will be 3 in July and is described as being very sweet and loving, super smart, a little sassy, a good kid, easy going and never fussy. They have high expectations for her and for themselves, but are also not very rigid. They set ground rules and enforce them. Their daughter now attends preschool from 8:30 to 3:30-5:30PM T/W/Th so therefore this is not strictly a nanny role and household duties will be needed so it has shifted to more of a family assistant / household manager role.  There will be childcare some days, light housekeeping/tidying up the home,  family laundry, organizational projects, occasional meal prep etc.  The schedule is flexible (again open to either part-time or full-time:
Monday through Thursday (roughly 8AM to 5PM, unless nanny finishes early)                                                                                Monday’s duties include childcare plus the upkeep of the house and laundry.
Tuesday: mostly house duties and getting their daughter up, dressed, fed and out the door to pre-school (parents drop her off) and allowing Mom to leave for work.
Wednesday: same schedule and duties as Monday.
Thursday: same schedule and duties as Thursday.
The family typically takes their dog to doggy daycare to play Tues/Thurs so those days will most likely be lighter days if there’s not as much to do. Paid Vacation.  Paid Holidays. Bonus.

Pets: one large 70 lb dog (Weimaraner). Compensation: $25/hr. Starts ASAP. (REF#KTPHX)

Cactus & the 101: This wonderful returning family of ours with an airline pilot couple needs a high energy, flexible, nurturing, crafty nanny for their two school-aged girls ages 14 & 12. Occasional overnights required. Ideal nanny is mature, organized and can manage being alone with the children for one to three days at a time (including overnights ) while both parents are away working. This is an example of their current nanny’s schedule starting in February 2020. She worked the following dates: Feb 8, Mar 11, April 4,May 5, June 5, July 0, Aug 12, Sep 7, Oct 9, Nov 3, Dec 13, Jan 3, Feb 8.  That averages out to 6.8 days. Rounded up to 7 per month.
Most of these days are not full days but are still included in the total. For example nanny arrives at 10 pm on Monday and departs at 8am on Wednesday. Some of the longer stretches had 24 breaks built in, which were paid and included in the total days. These are all fully discussed with the nanny.  The base pay monthly pay is a minimum guarantee based upon 168 hours per month. Which is 7 days. This is the minimum the nanny will be guaranteed every month. Right now the compensation is $1350 as a base monthly pay  however the family is flexible. These days can be in various combinations of days and length and include overnight stays. On months when the requested work days exceed 168 hrs additional compensation will be paid, which is $18/hr plus $150 per overnight.  The nanny will have  downtime during the day, but should be reachable should an emergency arise ( children sick, online school, early pick up).  If the nanny has another job that’s fine also, as long as she’s available to pick up the kids should the need arise. Some months the family will need to request more work days than 7 days. Months requiring greater than 7 days will be paid in addition to the guarantee.  The parents strive to maintain short stretches of days at work. They cannot guarantee only 1 or 3 day stretches. That was generally typical of their pilot schedules. It does change, although that’s still their goal. The kids are in school all day so when nanny cares for them she will make sure they are up and ready for school; dropped off at school and then has the full day alone while they are at school. Then pick up after school is needed and the evening routine and supervising them overnight. They have employed 4 nannies of ours before over the past 12 years and they are ideally seeking a long term commitment beyond just one year. This position needs to be a priority for the nanny. The nanny may only work 7 days per month but will get paid the same base income of $1350 (or what is agreed upon) If the nanny works more than 7 days per month there is additional pay, which equates to $18/hr and $150 per overnight. Paid vacation, use of car. Holidays are rarely scheduled. Interviewing now.  (REF#TBSC)
