A very loving family in Sylvan Park is in an immediate need of a nanny to care for their son, 4 months old, full time beginning ASAP (37209). 


Monday - Thursday: 8:30 - 6 PM

Guaranteed hours: Yes, 38/week 

Start date: By March 2, 2020

Duration: 1 year contract to start


These incredibly proud parents are seeking a kind, trustworthy, responsible, and respectful nanny to lovingly care for their little man while they are at work 4 days per week. Mom will be taking Fridays off to spend the day with her son, and is seeking a full time nanny that will be respectful of their parenting choices and mirror they dynamic while they are out of the house. Knowledge of developmental milestones is key to an active and engaging day working on little man's growth! He's currently on a pretty solid routine, but this will change throughout the first year. Adaptability and knowledge of what the first year of infancy brings is important.  

Throughout the day, child-related tasks are asked in regards to preparing and cleaning up (dishes/bottles, wiping down high chair, keeping common areas tidy, putting away toys/books/etc, helping with child's laundry). The family is big on walks right now and live close to the greenway. They are open to outings once their son is a little older and encourage someone to do story times, park trips, and such. This will require a safe driving record and very reliable vehicle that can transport the child. 

The core of this family is LOVE and they are so hopeful to find someone who shares their values of everything coming from the heart. 


- Infant CPR certification

- Comfortability with pets (the family has a black lab) 

- A laid back but professional approach to childcare

- Team mentality and adaptability to the family's parenting style 

- have a big heart for children and helping out families

Child-related duties are all that are asked, but mom and dad need a helping hand who can be diligent to clean up after themselves and the baby throughout the day so they can walk in and spend quality time as a family. Bottles washed, toys picked up, high chairs wiped down, floors cleared of any dropped food, and a tidy common area would be expected. It would be extremely helpful to get a load of the baby's laundry done each week too, washed, dried, and put away.

This family just turned into a family of 5 and is seeking a mature, loving, and engaging nanny to be a big part of their children's lives. The live just over the county line in Brentwood (37027), just past Forrest Hills. This family is easy to get to from Cool Springs, Green Hills, Belle Meade and Franklin. 


The schedule is likely to change slightly when mom returns to work in April or June, but for now:

M: 8 - 1 or 8 - 3 (8-5 when mom returns to work pt)

T: 8 - 1 

W: 3 - 8 (PM)

Th: 8 - 1 

F: 8 - 1 

*more hours if you are open to cleaning and have the experience to deep clean the family's home for separate hours than noted above. (+5-8/week)


Kid's ages: B4, B2, B2 months 

This family's ideal fit is someone who thrives on organization, doesn't rely on technology/tv for entertaining the kids, is patient, and reliable. This crew opts outside at any chance possible. Their property is an imagination's playground, equip with a big driveway for riding bikes, a stream running through their front yard, and lots of open land with big trees waiting to be run through! 

All things kid are always the priority from keeping up with the family's routines for meals and naps, prepping the kids food, picking up throughout the day after activities (If you live by the philosophy of "everything has a home to go back to" you'll fit in well), and lots of engaging and actively participating in the kid's playtime. 

 Most care will be for the baby and B2 when he's not in school. B4 is in full time preschool, so he will be around Wednesday afternoons and any days off of school. 

Fridays will comprise mostly of meal prep and folding laundry since Mom is home. Ideally they would have someone who is open to helping out around the house with things here and there since mom may be with the boys during your shift, or could be running another kiddo to swimming or running errands. A flexible nanny with both schedule and responsibilities would be great! 

The family has a 14 year old toy poodle who will need to be let outside occasionally. This little guy looks like a tiny koala bear and likes to sleep most of the time. 


- have a track record of reliability 

- eventually take initiative around the house once you learn the family's preferences and dynamic

- be able to adopt the family's parenting and discipline philosophies

- experience in a nanny role previously for 1+ year, 3 years of childcare experience in total

- current CPR certification 

- be respectful of the family's wishes to not use electronics/tv, which includes being on your own personal cell phone during work hours for non-work related reasons

- comfort with driving kiddos from time to time using your own vehicle

- comfortable running errands occasionally if needed

- experience with newborns less than 3 months old (a must!) and toddler ages 


Hourly: $ 18 - $20 

Yearly income for PT work: $23,400 - $26,000+

Guaranteed hours: the family will guarantee the hours that are agreed upon with the candidate 

Holidays + PTO: Negotiable

Mileage: offered if you end up driving 



Loving parents to brothers, 2 years and 5 months, are seeking a loving nanny who is easy going to join their family for a live-in or live-out position in Brentwood, TN (37027) that will involve traveling with them. 

A live-in nanny is preferred, but the family would consider a currently local live -out candidate.


Typical day: Monday through Friday 9 to 3 or 10 to 5

Travel day: hours shift to the evening to cover childcare during shows

Guaranteed hours: 40/week, but generally you only work 20-30.

Non-typical day (while touring): Weekdays + Weekends with hours shifted towards the evening.

Start date: February/March 2020

Duration: 1-2 years minimum 


This loving, sweet, and down to earth family is looking for a helpful nanny who is an expert at engaging with children to foster their development and growth and is looking to help a family in those big and small ways. The most important part of this role is connecting with the children and caring for them with a big heart. 


This role requires someone who is extremely adaptable and flexible. The schedule will change slightly daily; dad is a touring musician and mostly goes out on the road over weekends, which the nanny and family often join in on. Mom is currently traveling out of town weekly for 1-3 days, but that will slow down soon. Weekend help will be required when travel overlaps and when the family travels together. These parents are relying on their nanny to be there when they need her to, while being fair with advanced notice and shifting days for time off after traveling.

 It is important to providing consistent care for their children whether at home or on the road. They truly need a seasoned professional who is self-directed and a self-starter, but can also have great judgement on when to step back when Mom or Dad take over. Confidence in either solo-care or being around mom and dad will be key!

Your general expectations would be: all childcare duties as well as occasional family-assistant tasks or errands. Some weeks there won't be a big need for childcare and they may ask the nanny to help with organization, errands, and meal prep. Keeping track of things around the house would be very helpful! At the end of the day, they really want their nanny to feel like family, someone they can trust, who they have respect for, and who they have open lines of communication with. They are silly but laid back, like to be home bodies, enjoy spending quality time as a family, and have a deeply rooted faith that is part of their daily life as well.


- encourage imagination + creativity in the children and be very hands-on

- be on time!

- pet friendly, they have a small poodle mix

- have infant nanny  experience (min 2 years)

- have toddler nanny experience (min 2 years)

- not rely on the tv a lot 

- be helpful and have a pitch in mentality

- be discrete and private

- have a hard work ethic 

- love to be outside and play 

- be CPR certified 

- have a safe car + driving record

- experience traveling with a family

Travel: Required

More info on work hours: Travel will be required, especially for one month in the summer when the family travels to Colorado. The nanny will have time off there, but will have a fairly regular schedule (35-40 hours/week). Dad travels a lot for work and mom sometimes joins him (she works with him P/T), so some weekends + overnights are needed. When they're home, their social calendar tends to fill up fast, so they need some later evenings here and there too but also use additional sitters. 


This busy family needs a helping hand with just about everything! Mom is seeking a dynamic and adaptive team player who can work with her daily to tackle childcare and household tasks such as:

- Help with children's laundry

- Keeping the kitchen tidy and picked up

- Organizing the children's toys and bedrooms

- Prepping family meals 2-3 times per week

The first few months will be a bit different since the family will have just have welcomed a newborn. Overtime, this role will really focus on watching the baby at home while mom takes the boys to school and picks them up, and help keep the house in order. Patience goes a long way when working with a big family, so this is a good role for someone who doesn't easily get overwhelmed and prefers redirection. Engaging and active involvement in every step of the day with the children is highly important. They are hoping to find their Mary Poppins! 


- be seeking a career role, the contracts will be yearly, but the family intends to renew for years to come with someone who is dedicated to growing with their family and needs

Entrepreneurial parents and their three incredible kiddos G9, G6, B2 are seeking a perfect fit for their spirited and welcoming family. The family lives on Belmont Blvd. 


Ideally 2-3 days per week from 8:15 - 4:30, they are flexible with just about anything and want to be able to work around someone else's schedule as best they can. 

Total hours per week: 16 - 25

Start date: as soon as they find "the one"

Duration: would love someone a year, will take an incredible fit for 6 months 


This creative, fun, loving, empowering, and inclusive family is searching for a creative, educational, and all hands on deck type nanny to help them with all the moving pieces they call life. Easy going, flexible, and adaptable are the key components to describing this family, and they work best with someone who embodies these too.


This is someone who brings joy into the house with laughter, creativity, fun and genuine enjoyment of engaging with children. It would be a bonus if that person were musically-inclined and artistic, but it's not a requirement.  More than anything, they want someone who fits their family well and connects with each of the children--understanding their unique personalities and how to meet them where they are (we're talking full spectrum of worm-hunting to kiddie manicures to theatre bug). It would be wonderful to find someone who understands social-emotional development for the different ages of the kids. We definitely need someone who can lean into the chaos and the challenges that come with the everyday, someone who knows when to laugh things off, and someone who knows how to be present and patient when kids are having "big" feelings.

The day can be lead by a combination of things mom has planned, things you would want to do with the kids, and things that are scheduled like appointments, gymnastics, tennis, etc. You'll work with mom a lot to coordinate things, but she's in/out throughout the day.

They're the family that has the kid's friends over, and they have such a warm and welcoming home, you'll feel it as soon as you walk in! They have space to P L A Y and that's what this family is all about, from sports to building to dancing or acting out a movie in costumes, you name it, they play it. A creative personality who encourages this would fit right in. 

The best fit for this family is someone who is willing to help out wherever is needed, whether running errands, putting groceries away, picking up a child from school, an impromptu trip to the zoo, buying a gift for an upcoming birthday, greeting the dog trainer for a puppy school session, or tossing old items in a fridge, it all comes down to pitching in to keep the flow going. 

Must be dog friendly (they have a new puppy who you do not have to train/be responsible for), be reliable and on time, be comfortable with the parents working from home (it's a big house), respect the family's privacy and be discrete, have a pitch in mindset, have some nanny experience, be open to being a loved extension of their family.


Hourly: $20/hour

PTO: negotiable

Holidays: usually will reschedule the work day for another day, if not you'll have the day off paid 

Guaranteed hours: yes 

Mileage: vehicle provided

A loving and warm family in Thompson Station (37179) is seeking a full time nanny for their two children, ages 3 and NB due in February. This position requires a lot of flexibility week to week, and some travel. This is not ideal for someone who needs a consistent 9 to 5 job. 


Typically Monday - Friday, 15 - 25 hours per week between 8 am - 6 pm (but paid for 40) 

Non-typical week, 40 hours with some needs on weekends. 

Start date: ASAP

Duration: Long term, this family would love a nanny to grow with their family for years 

Notes on schedule fluctuation: The schedule will start more full time but will generally be closer to part time once everyone gets into a rhythm with baby #2. Dad travels often so mom needs a lot of help! Hours will be required in the evening sometimes until 11-12am or overnights for very late nights/early mornings. 


This family-oriented family is looking to expand their village in Nashville since they have no family in town and need some help with their 3 year old son and baby due soon! Mom is primarily responsible for the day to day schedule and routines with their eldest child, but has a lot of business and social engagements in the works that she'll need to be present for in the coming months, so they need someone who can come in and take initiative! 

Their ideal fit is nurturing and warm, very patient, laid back, and the type who is always thinking of others.


Want to pitch in wherever needed? This job is for you, and it will be a requirement while home and traveling since it's an all hands on deck type of job! This couple also likes to be silly, so a sense of humor goes a long way. They would love someone who is comfortable with their faith as it's ingrained in their everyday lives. 

Travel will involve shared spaces on a tour bus, which will occur a few times per year. This will be set up in advance when the family meets dad on tour. When you're traveling there will be allocated time off, but it's best to go into it knowing you'll be in tight quarters! You'll need to go with the flow! 

Asking for help is sometimes hard for this family, so being a team player and taking the lead on things will be needed a lot. 

There is a potential that this position could turn into a family assistant role with errand running, but primary duties include full charge childcare, help with laundry, light household clean up, and always cleaning up after the children and oneself. 


- experience with newborns and toddlers

- travel experience in a prior nanny position

- CPR certification

- Safe driver and reliable, safe car

- pitch in mentality

- patient, go with the flow, but also can set boundaries and be firm/authoritative

- have a genuine love for children and helping families  


Gross annual base compensation $35,000 - $40,000 ($17 - $19/hr for 40 hours)

*Most weeks only 15 - 25 hours are needed, but they will need your full time flexibility to schedule those hours

Travel will be compensated additionally on top of the base compensation ($3000+ annually)

PTO + Holidays: negotiable

This little guy likes to spend his days being busy! He has mild sensory integration and social regulation challenges, so his nanny must be willing to learn the family's dynamic, work with the occupational therapist that comes weekly, and be this little man's biggest fan next to mom and dad to ensure he's reaching goals in motor and social development. Climbing their indoor rockwall, scaling a giant tunnel, walking to parks, baking up treats, and throwing rocks in puddles will fill your days (CAUTION: This little man likes to get dirty, but that means he's having fun!) A nanny who it motivated to connect with their son, who is advocating for him to have a voice and coaching him through new and routine experiences is important. The parents will provide a training period where they'll show you the in's and out's of what they have learned already, with the hope that it would be integrated into the day with him while they are working. Childcare related duties are asked, and if you're a baker, it's one of this little man's favorite things to do- it calms him down and soothes him.
