Queen Creek

NEW FULL-TIME NANNY JOB IN QUEEN CREEK, $18-$20/hr

Hawes & Ocotillo:  An amazing Queen Creek family with a 3 1/2 year old boy and 1 1/2 year old girl are seeking a nanny to join their household for a flexible schedule with a guaranteed 35 hrs per week.  A typical schedule may be M-F from 8AM-3PM however they are flexible on the hrs so if the nanny desires 3 days from 8-2 and 2 days that are longer to add up to 35 hrs (or a variation of that), the family is open to that as well.  There is the opportunity for additional hrs in the evenings for date nights or overnights if desired. Their 3 1/2 year old son  is starting preschool July 22nd MTTH from 12:30-3:30 so they may need help with drop off and a family car is provided. After getting comfortable for the first month, the parents would be open to the nanny taking the kids out on outings.  Their 1 1/2 year old girl is a typical toddler that is into everything and needs a lot of attention and supervision. She does not sit still, really active, hilarious, goofy, super smart, and  loves to do everything her brother is doing. She’s always in a good mood, loves eating, and is always happy. She loves to be outside and engaged in fun activities.  Their 3 1/2 year old son loves to be outside all the time, loves cars and trucks, loves his iPad, games, loves hands on activities like play dough, coloring, and painting.  He’s a great listener, a feisty child, and very well-behaved. He is a picky eater and is going to a nutritionist to assist with his eating habits. Brother and sister play well together, often rough play and they do not like to be separated.  They are both loving and cuddly. An interactive, talkative nanny who is firm with boundaries yet loving works the best for them. The family lives right next to a massive park with a huge splash pad.  There is no pool in their backyard.   They have a casual atmosphere in their home. Mom works from home 3 days per week, and Dad works from home as well but also travels frequently (1 week per month on average). Both parents have home offices. Dad is highly allergic to Cats so they are needing a nanny who does not have a cat at home.  No travel will be required; however, they may request the nanny to attend 1 trip per year with the family if desired, for 1 week. They are seeking a nanny who is energetic, outgoing, and organized. Their favorite quality in a nanny is one who puts in effort to actively interact with the kids and comes up with fun activities for them to do together. Both children are very active and love to play outside. It is extremely important to them that there is always an open line of communication and that the nanny feels that they can speak to the parents freely or ask them any and all questions at any time. They are desiring a nanny who puts in daily effort to ensure the kids feel loved, unconditionally. Driving is needed only if there is a schedule conflict (rarely) – it would be for picking up or dropping off their son from Preschool. School is 2.2miles from home. Car may be provided. Both parents are Covid vaccinated and they  would feel better if the nanny is vaccinated as well since Mom has an immune deficiency and the grandparents also live close by and visit the grandchildren.  However they do not want to exclude any nanny as long as there is open communication regarding their Covid- cautious lifestyle.  As parents, it’s important to them that their kids be respectful and navigating negative behavior with toddlers is not always the easiest – therefore they would prefer a candidate who has experience with toddlers. Lastly, they hope that their future nanny feels as if they are part of the family and will treat them as such.  Paid Holidays. Paid Vacation. Use of Car. Compensation:  $18-$20/hr. Position starts in Aug.  (REF#JPQC)

It’s summer time which means it’s the perfect time to leave the electronics at home, explore the beautiful outdoors and create camping memories the kids sure won’t forget. Here are a few camping do’s to keep in mind when camping with the kiddos. We’ve also listed a few of our favorite places to camp in Arizona.
Camping Tips:
– Test Run: It’s not a bad idea to do a “test run” in your backyard prior to going on a camping trip. This will give the kiddos and you an idea of what it will be like sleeping in a tent.
– Washing Station/Wipes: It’s a must that you will get dirty camping – it’s so fun exploring in nature for worms, pinecones, fishing, etc. Although at the end of the day, it’s nice to take the dirt away. Bring lots of antibacterial wipes or set up a washing station with a bucket of soap and water.
– Entertainment: Bring along some extra fun things for the kids such as bubbles, squirt guns, coloring books, binoculars, magnifying glass and card games.
– Night Time Safety: Campsites are extremely dark at night and can be scary for kiddos but you can make it fun by bringing headlamps, flashlights, book lights and lanterns.
Family Camping Sites in Arizona:
– Woods Canyon Lake: Woods Canyon is 30 miles east of Payson and a 2 hour drive from Phoenix. You can fish, rent a boat at Woods Canyon Lake and they even have a little market to get supplies/ice cream. Check out more information or reserve your camping spot here.
– Lo Lo Mai Springs: Lo Lo Mai is located between Cottonwood and Sedona. It’s located on the creek and offers restrooms/showers, swimming pool, spa and playground. They also have a little market to get supplies. Check out this fun camp site here.
– Flagstaff KOA: If you are more of a “glamping” kind of family this is the place for you! You can rent tents/cabins, they have WiFi, Cable TV, bathrooms/showers, bicycle rentals and a cafe that serves breakfast every morning. You can get more information about Flagstaff KOA here.
We hope you found the above useful as camping with family is a lot of fun! Relax and enjoy making outdoor memories with your family.
Happy Camping ~

Mother’s Day is a celebration of honoring all the amazing mom’s, grandma’s, aunts, sister’s and anyone who has played a motherly role in your life. It’s a day to show these special women how much you love and appreciate them.
As a nanny, here are some suggestions on how to ensure the mom you nanny for enjoy their special day.

  1. Make a craft with their kiddos: A few popular, easy and non-expensive crafts are handprint cards, handprint pots (fill with mom’s favorite flowers), bookmarks, salt dough handprint or check out fun money mom for 11 adorable Mother’s Day Crafts.
  2. Tidy the House: We think all mom’s appreciate a tidy house and can relax easier when they know the house is cleaned. As a nanny, maybe go above and beyond to make sure the house is cleaned, even if it’s tasks you don’t do on a daily basis such as vacuuming, dusting, dishes, laundry or mopping.
  3. Plant Flowers: Take their kiddo to Lowes or Home Depot to pick out some flowers for outside to plant together. Moving forward, the mom and child can water the plant together making it a special time for both.
  4. Redbox: Rent a kid friendly movie ahead of time along with popcorn/snacks so that the mom and kiddo can watch it together creating a relaxing, enjoyable memory.
  5. Picture Frame: Take a picture of their kiddo and then make a popsicle stick frame together. Mom’s love homemade gifts. Check out this cute popsicle frame. 
  6. Time: Give the gift of time to the mama. Maybe go in early or stay late next time you nanny for their kiddo to help with morning/evening routine’s or give them an extra hour or two unpaid to give the mom an opportunity to go shopping/date night/mani & pedi or just to run errands.

We hope you have found these gift ideas helpful and we hope you enjoy spoiling your mama’s! We wish all mom’s out there a very Happy Mother’s Day from Caring Nannies! Enjoy your day – you deserve it!

We had a great Saturday attending and being a sponsor at International Nanny Training Day at Modern Milk. International Nanny Training Day was created to provide training and support to nannies to help foster excellence in the nanny profession.  Caring Nannies is proud to be affiliated with National Nanny Training Day since it was first initiated in 2012. As with any profession, continued education is vital and when caregivers are trained and knowledgeable, children clearly benefit.

Training began with an amazing presentation by Jill Peterson who is with Hermonia. Jill talked about BE-ing vs. DO-ing, which referenced the impact you have as a nanny and how to chose who you want to be every day. Starting with picking two goals you want to set for yourself for that day. It was very inspirational, motivating and Jill is hilarious! Our next session was by Chelsea Kunde with Building Blocks AZ  talking about super power discipline styles. Chelsea was so sweet and funny giving us a lot of great ideas on finding solutions in creative ways. Some of our favorites is the calm down jar, sensory box, time out box and behavior charts. After our lunch break, Meredith Madsen shared some very informative tools on how to perfect a resume and how to be stellar for an interview! Meredith has so much experience in the field and had a lot of great tips and tricks to share!

Overall, we had so much fun learning and enjoying our day International Nanny Training! Many thanks to our friends at The Nanny Joynt for hosting this amazing event for nannies to come together to collaborate.
