This family is about to sail into uncharted territory with welcoming their third child and they feel confident that they know how and where their family will need support leading up to and after their little one’s arrival. Their family is active, prioritizes a healthy lifestyle, and enjoys spending time together as a family. They are no stranger to hiring and have built great relationships with their nannies based on trust, mutual respect, and open communication. They would like someone to begin before baby’s arrival to help ease the transition and get to know their needs, their boys, and how their home runs. They are looking for someone who will primarily be at the home and who knows how to stay busy, be proactive, and stay on top of routine household need. This could look like laundry tasks, meal prepping kid’s lunches/food, collaborating with their FT nanny, managing household inventory, scheduling repairs or vendors, opening packages and keeping things organized, while also having the aptitude to easily fold into childcare needs for the big boys. A good fit is someone who can easily taking direction and pivot as needed.
Their boys are both sweethearts and it will be important to get to know them and develop a relationship with these tiny humans! Some afternoons may be very involved with them, picking up from school, driving to extracurriculars, playing in their playroom or backyard, or going through their dinner + bedtime routines. Their daytime nanny covers most of the planning and logistics for school, playdates and educational or social outings as she’s there in the morning through the afternoons. Success for this family heavily relies on schedules and routines, and maintaining naps and consistent sleep environments for all the kids. This role will allow this to happen while the kids are at all different stages. Eventually, they foresee their needs or job scope evolving, and are looking for someone who can grow with their family through the anticipated changes.
As dad’s work picks up again right around when baby arrives, it will be important to have someone who is reliable, dependable and flexible. Mom may need help over the weekends if dad is traveling or working long hours, or may need some hours covered earlier in the day if she can’t help with a big-kid scheduling conflict when baby is little. There is a possibility that some weeks could be more than 50 hours. A good fit it someone who is gentle with sharing suggestions, non-judgmental, and respectful of the choices the parents make for their children. Work ethic is imperative to them, they’re looking for someone who can be efficient, proactive, and intuitive in their scope of work. They keep a tidy, organized, and green home. They are calm, patient, and easy going and feel that these are qualities that would align well in a personality fit. They love a positive, optimistic mindset and a loving, warm approach to caring for children!
