NEW FLEXIBLE PART-TIME SPLIT-SHIFT NANNY POSITION IN SCOTTSDALE WITH TIME OFF EVERY MONTH! $18-$20/HR

Pima & Thompson Peak Pkwy:  This wonderful busy Scottsdale family has a 6 year old son  who is full of energy! He is a total boy in all ways. He loves to play any and all card/board games, loves swimming, reading books, being on his scooter, playing superheroes etc. He is a great eater, and loves fruit especially. He had a stroke when Mom was pregnant so he technically has cerebral palsy but anyone who meets him says they’d never know until it is mentioned.  The parents would like others to be aware because his right arm is weaker, but he is left handed. He has no allergies, no medical issues, no seizures. He is at normal levels for speech, reading, school, etc. The family recently lost their nanny of 5 years,  and she was family. They want another nanny who feels like part of the family. It is a part time  split-shift position on days mom works at the hospital with a guaranteed 80 hrs a month even though the nanny is not needed to work every week. Hours may vary as dad’s schedule is flexible. Their ideal nanny has high energy, is fun, willing to do games, crafts, reading, playing tag etc as they  would prefer to limit tv although with COVID 19 they’ve allowed more. Their son is in kindergarten so they would like someone willing to do school work on his ipad with him, follow easy directions and a creative nanny who will engage him in arts and crafts. They have a craft cabinet with fun things to be creative. They desire a nanny who is firm with their son on manners and fits and who is willing to enforce time out if necessary. Their son loves to swim and their pool is heated so they would love someone comfortable with water who may either swim with him or at least knows how to swim to supervise. There may be a need to drive him to an appointment 1 day a week, so a reliable car and clean driving record is necessary, and a booster seat would be provided. Mom is a very active mom, but they are all going stir crazy and a change of scenery can be healthy for all! They are a self-proclaimed very chill family to work for. They are fair and love celebrating birthdays, holidays, and special occasions with their nanny. Essentially Mom works one week on – one off, or two weeks on – two  weeks off. It’s a little confusing so below is the schedule for the rest of the year. Basically on the weeks that Mom works, the nanny will have the following split shift schedule and on the weeks Mom does not work, the nanny will not be needed or Mom may utilize the nanny in other ways for minimal hrs  (like when she has appointment) but most likely the nanny has that time for personal time which is a huge perk because the family is still guaranteeing 80 hrs over the course of the month (20 hrs each week) to secure the same nanny.  So for example, the nanny may work more than 20 hrs on the weeks mom works and then not work on an off week (or work very little hrs) but will always get paid for 20 hrs a week.  So it all balances out. Below are the weeks that Mom works from Oct to the end of Dec and the schedule on these days is a split shift schedule of before and after school.  The nanny is not needed all day while Mom is at work since their son is in school. So the nanny gets a break in the middle of the day and also gets several days off a month.

October 5-8 (6:30AM arrival and then school drop-off at 8AM.  Pick up at 3-6PM)
October 12-15 (Mom drops off in the AM-  Nanny picks up at 3 -8:30PM)
November 2-5 (6:30AM arrival, drop off at 8AM, Pick up at 3-6PM)
November 16-19 (7:30AM arrival time, drop off at 8AM,  Pick up at 3-7)
Nov 30- Dec 3 (6:30AM arrival time, drop off at 8AM, Pick up at 3-6)
December 7-10 (Mom drops off in the AM, Nanny picks up at 3-8:30PM)
December 28-31 (6:30 arrival time, drop off at 8AM, Pick up at 3-6PM)

Mom’s schedule just repeats itself where she works one week on, one week off, then 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off, and it repeats again to one week on, one week off, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.  S0 the nanny has time off every month on the weeks that Mom just not work. They are seeking a nanny who is upbeat with high energy, willing to drive their son to school  in the mornings (All Saints Central Phoenix) and pick him up in the afternoons. Nanny will communicate with the teacher. Their son also has PT on Tuesday mornings at 7 am so that would fall on the nanny as well and then school drop off after. He has OT on Wednesday afternoons at 4 pm – same thing, school pick up, snack then therapy. Therapy is an hour. The nanny can drop him off and run an errand or wait and be back by 4:50 for example to get him. Mornings the nanny will need to arrive early to feed him breakfast and get him dressed  and then evenings when Mom works later the nanny would be in charge of dinner for him. When dad is home early they will relieve the nanny and pay for all hours to be fair as this is part time.  They are definitely looking for someone who feels like “family”. Compensation: $18-$20/hr. 80 hrs/month.  Interviewing starts now.  Position starts in Oct.  (REF#SVSC)

Both parents have fairly flexible jobs:  Mom runs a business and dad works from home consistently.  Both currently work from home but Mom may return to the office in Jan depending on COVID. Their home offices are private individual spaces with closed door offices so as not to disrupt the nanny’s daily routine with the children. Their son will be 4 in November and he’s a very curious active little boy. He loves animals and his primary thing right now is he has every animal figure on the planet and plays with them every day independently.  He loves running around and playing outside with the dog.  He listens and follows directions well and has zero behavioral issues.  He is a very picky eater and there are limited foods he will eat so the parents will coach the nanny on the foods he will eat and would also love for the nanny to come up with creative ways to get him to try new foods.  Nap time is easy and he is potty trained.

The main challenge with her is adjusting to strangers but she does much better within her own home.  They have a cleaning service once a week for deep cleaning so nanny is only responsible for tidying up and maintaining the upkeep in main living areas and kitchen,  preparing children’s meals and  folding kids’ laundry.  Both children take 2 hr naps — down time would be used to clean up the living rooms, play areas, kids’ rooms; they have lots of toys but they are all organized in bins, light vacuum over the play areas , load/unload the dishwasher. They are desiring a nanny who is punctual, responsible, experienced and professional.  The nanny needs to focus on interactive play with the children and engage them in activities with minimal supervision as well as be able to prepare children’s meals and clean up the areas that they and the kids use throughout the day. Ideal nanny is dependable and someone who will genuinely engage with the kids.  They do not have a pool but they have a large bounce house, water slide and trampoline in their backyard for fun outside play.  They live in a master planned community with a park and live right by the Wildlife World Zoo.  Once they feel comfortable with the nanny taking the children on outings, they will provide the nanny with the family vehicle to do so.  Pets:  Springerdoodle puppy.  No travel. Compensation:  $18-$20/hr+, flexible for the right candidate. Paid Vacation.  Paid Holidays. Interviewing now.  Position starts ASAP. (REF#AWLITCHFIELD)

Phoenix Nanny

FLEXIBLE FULL-TIME NANNY OPPORTUNITY IN PHX, $18-$20/hr, ASAP     Glendale and 12th St:  This wonderful busy professional family in PHX has 3 children (9 year old daughter, 7 year old son, and 3 year old son) and they are seeking a hands-on, proactive, energetic stellar nanny to join their household and grow longterm with their family for the next several years. Dad is an entrepreneur with a very busy schedule  running his business.  Mom is a stay at home Mom. Their oldest daughter will be 10 in Sept and she’s very much a first born girl, very bright and gifted, extremely empathetic and mature for her age.  She’s a really good girl, started to play club soccer this year and guitar.  She’s in the 4th grade and is a wonderful big sister and she’s really taken her 7 year old brother’s autism diagnosis with stride.  Quarantine has been really hard for her and it has not been easy being locked up with her brothers all day every day.  Her parents are hoping a nanny will be a mentor and friend for her.  The 7 year old son is in 1st grade and was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4. He has been in therapy since he was 2 and he’s affected by it but does really well in a regular education classroom with occupational and speech therapy. He is an absolute love and is very sweet, communicative, fun, engaging and is really concentrated.  He has interest in movies and music and loves the moon and recycle trucks.  With online schooling due to school closures, Mom must devote all 0f her attention to her 7 year old son. Mom has a background as a school psychologist. They had an incredible support team at school for her son and everyone is trying to support him at home as much as possible but it has been challenging.  He needs someone to sit with him at all times and therefore Mom needs an extra set of hands to tend to the other 2 children while she works with him.  Mom loves being hands-on and the creative Pinterest Mom who does it all so having a team player with a nanny will enable her to have that quality time and also allow her to drive her son to therapy appointments, run errands, take self-care days, and so forth. Their 3 year old son is described as the easiest, easy going boy! He’s starting to miss preschool and he’s had a lot of screen time since quarantine started which is why a creative, interactive nanny is needed.  He needs 3 year old attention, loves trucks, adores his big sister, and plays so well independently with toys. The family has had a few nannies in the past and what has worked out is someone who can just roll up her sleeves, jump in and be proactive to help. They desire a nanny who is happy, takes great initiative and just comes in with a desire to learn. There’s a learning curve with their autistic son and therapists will be around all the time to learn from so being communicative is vital as well as flexibility. Due to Covid, therapists are not coming in the home at this time but when they do there has to be another adult present with therapists, which is another big reason why a nanny is needed. The ideal nanny is energetic enough for rough and tumble kids, loving enough to see the special parts of each of them and also has grace, and can be adaptable with their ever changing therapies/activities/schedules.  Must be honest and a strong communicator to join their team. Experience with children with learning disabilities would be helpful but not a requirement as long as there is a willingness to learn. The nanny will need to take a brief online habilitation and respite training (paid) to be their autistic son’s direct care worker. It is minimal and only takes a couple hours and their previous nannies did not have prior special needs’ experience and were able to learn just fine. They ideally want the candidate to be with their family long term (3-5 years). Right now, the most important thing is that the nanny must be following very strict social distancing guidelines as their son is very immunocompromised and the family is taking no risks.  Mom is home full time but taking care of therapies, errands, and all that it entails to keep a busy household with 3 children running smoothly and efficiently.  Nanny will be a team player with Mom and will divide and conquer to help out in any capacity that is needed.  They have a casual yet fast-paced atmosphere in their home.  Their goldendoodle recently passed but they are considering a new one soon so nanny must be dog friendly.  The schedule is a flexible full-time schedule with a guaranteed 35 hrs per week and up to 40 hours, mostly M-F 8AM-4PM. Once in person school starts for the children, they can be flexible about a 4 day work schedule and still provide full-time hours (35-40 hrs/week). Flexibility and availability to work an evening or weekend shift is a huge bonus but not mandatory and priority is the weekly M-F schedule. The weekend shift is optional.  Travel is not a requirement, however it would be nice to occasionally take the nanny on a family trip for an extra set of hands. No driving is required at this time since the care is primarily in their home and Mom does any driving needed.  Compensation:  $18-$20/hr.  Interviewing starts immediately and position starts ASAP.  Amazing family who truly values quality care and an excellent opportunity for growth and advancement.  (REF#JKPHX)

Educator

FULL-TIME NANNY/ PRIVATE EDUCATOR POSITION IN SCOTTSDALE, $20-$22/HR, ASAP
Mountain View & Via Lista: This busy professional returning family with 3 active boys is seeking a mature, firm, structured nanny / educator to care for, teach and keep their sons organized. Typical schedule is M-F, from 8-4 or 8:30 – 4:30, with flexibility. Both parents are still working from home due to Covid. Their sons are 10 years old, 7 years old, and 4 years old. Their family has been completely isolated for months and not socializing or taking any risks whatsoever. Mom works completely from home and will continue to do so. Dad sells medical devices to the OR and is currently working from home and if he needs to go into a hospital down the road, he will quarantine in an airbnb before returning home. The upcoming school year for the 10 year old and the 7 year old is still uncertain – whether they will do online schooling the entire school year, return to school at a later time or do a combination of online and home schooling is still to be determined. If the 10 year old and 7 year old continue with online schooling, the nanny will be responsible for supervising them and keeping them on task and organized with their school work but the primary focus will be on the 4 year old. The 4 year old is planning to start kindergarten at Basis for the 2021 – 2022 school year so the nanny’s primary focus this year will be on preparing the 4 year old for kindergarten and teaching him how to read and write so he is prepared for the advanced curriculum. The 2 older boys have been completing the homework packet for the summer and will be returning in 3 weeks to the virtual classroom, from 8AM-4PM. The 10 year old is extremely responsible , listens well and is a straight A student. He is friendly to everyone, and doesn’t like to be rough and tumble. He’s artsy and expressive and he’s a helper so he’s an asset and will be the right hand man to the nanny. The 7 year old is your boy’s boy and has a lot of energy and likes to engage in activities. It’s a struggle with him with online learning and he is rowdy and needs to get up and walk around and move in between classes to get work done. He likes to verbalize himself a lot, and he can get under people’s skin when he’s bored. He needs structure to stay on task. For the 4 year old boy, everything is no, he’s described as being super head strong, stubborn, and a challenge. This family has been with us for years and we’ve placed nannies in their household and both the nannies and the parents are very honest in saying that the 3 boys are not easy to care for. A strong structured nanny is needed to enforce rules and discipline and to keep the boys in line. Mom said they need a “drill sergeant and not a timid nanny.” Must be comfortable with both parents working from home. An ideal nanny would share the family’s philosophy that she is a care provider but also an educator. The best fit is going to be a nanny who will consistently implement a daily schedule that ensures their kids are meeting or exceeding their milestones.  They also value a nanny who can keep up with the needs of the household – kids laundry and meal prep, for example, time permitting. Pets: 2 cats and a dog. Compensation: $20-$22/hr. Starts ASAP (REF#MMSC)
