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 (10 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 10 year old daughter is 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. Position starts ASAP. Amazing family who truly values quality care and an excellent opportunity for growth and advancement.  (REF#JKPHX)
