A on the go family in Green Hills is seeking a mother's helper for their family of five in 37215.



Monday – Friday 20 - 35 hours per week depending on the candidate's needs

Care needed mostly in the afternoons (1-6) but also could use 1-2 full days 9-6. About 2 Saturdays per month are needed. 

Start date: As soon as the right fit is found

Duration: 1 year minimum



This is the perfect role for someone trying to dip their feet into nannying. You'll work alongside mom most days, and help her with whatever she needs that day. B10, G7, and B10 month old are on the move! Mom needs a support system at home to help her with childcare and household help such as laundry, making beds daily, and keeping the kitchen cleaned up. They’re a tidy family who definitely needs a second set of hands. Most childcare will be for the baby, no outings in the car just yet, but walks and walking to the park are encouraged! Typically, Mom handles all the afternoon driving and logistics, and will need the family assistant to stay at home with the baby. Many afternoons will be one to three children, with or without mom around. Light dinner prep, some errands, and keeping track of items that are running low would be ideal. Dad travels for work quite a bit, so the family assistant will be needed to stay later some evenings while mom takes the eldest to baseball, etc. Someone with a pitch-in mentality and who goes above and beyond speaks really loudly to mom and it’s something she very much appreciates. Their goal is for their kiddos to be happy and love their caregiver!


The family travels often, and some travel would be needed in this role to New York for about 1-3 weeks per year. This role will require the family assistant to work occasional days when the family isn’t there, helping with big organizational projects, cleaning out toys/clothes, etc. They do not have any pets.


A key to this role is someone who is very comfortable working alongside mom, adopting their family dynamic and being consistent with their routines, rules, etc. A general routine/schedule will be determined, but there will be variation from time to time. 




Hourly: $18 - $20/hour DOE

Approximate Annual Income: depends on final # of hours 

Guaranteed hours: Yes

PTO: 2 weeks, 1 of which to coordinate with a week the family takes off

Paid Holidays off: 9 Federal Holidays/year



A loving family who welcomed their first child in August is seeking a friendly, down to earth nanny to care for their son in East Nashville (Cleveland Park/37207).




Work days: Exact days TBD, but likely 9-3 or 8-2 Monday - Thursday

Guaranteed hours: 30 per week

Start date: 1/6/2020

Contract duration: 6 - 12 months





A fun and engaging nanny will be a great fit for this new family of three! Their ideal fit will focus on engaging with their little guy to spend an educational and developmentally appropriate day with him. Walks outside, trips to story times, the library, Shelby Park and playdates would be encouraged when the weather is good. Dancing around the living room to fun music or reading stories out loud in character voices are always options on a gloomy day! They want their son to explore each day with their nanny and have an upbeat, silly day! Dog lovers are encouraged to apply, as this family has two very sweet and friendly pups who hang out during the day.


General childcare duties are asked such as prepping meals and bottles, picking up child related messes, keeping the routine/schedule the family has in place, and a big emphasis on engaging playtime! This little man likes to keep moving.


Other helpful household tasks that would be appreciated, but always come second to the baby, would be loading and unloading the dishwasher, wiping down counters & tables, sweeping/vacuuming messes made or if baby will be crawling around where it’s messy, and keeping the common areas tidy.


The family has a fenced in yard that is great for fresh air. They ask that the nanny uses her own vehicle when going on outings, and ensuring that it is a safe car to transport a child in.



  • Current CPR Certification

  • Be extremely reliable + dependable

  • Be an animal lover!

  • Have a genuine love for children and caring for them

  • Love music

  • Be energetic and come in with a mental map of the day you’ll spend with the baby

A growing family in Nolensville (37135) is seeking a Family Assistant to keep their lives running smoothly and help them with childcare! 


FULL TIME HOURS: 10 a - 6 p (40 hours/week)

Will need occasional overnights and some earlier mornings 2-4 times per month


START DATE: As soon as the right candidate is found

DURATION: Long term, this growing family is needing someone for years to come!


This family needs a self starter! They are looking for someone who can spend their day assisting with household tasks and childcare, which is about a 50/50 split. They have a 7 month old, who the nanny would be spending the most time with (must have infant experience) a 2.5 year old and an 9 year old who are in school. They are expecting baby #4 in Spring 2020. After school help with the 2.5 and 9 year old is needed, so you need some afternoon energy to spend the time being creative, imaginative and playful! During the day, the family assistant will work alongside mom to manage the home, aid with childcare, and keep the flow of the house going. Some days mom will not be around, so you must be able to handle daily tasks on your own. This family is very tidy. Tasks such as all household laundry, sweeping, vacuuming, wiping down counters and tables, washing bottles, monitoring food expirations and adding to a grocery list, prepping easy family meals, running errands, and cleaning the children's bathtub daily after baths. Their expectation is if you see something out of place, it’s picked up and put away, whether it’s a game piece, crayon, or a sock.

Childcare duties will include; feeding, bathing, putting down for naps, bedtime routines, organizing toys, reading to/with the children, homework help, playing inside/outside, planning learning activities, crafts, games, etc. Bonding with and developing a connection with all of their children is very important.

The balance of the household tasks and childcare tasks will go back and forth on a daily basis, mom is seeking someone who can pick up where she leaves off and vice versa. Going on outings together would be a regular occurrence. They are truly looking for an extension of their family.  

The children have some sensitivities and allergies, so comfort with an epi pen is needed. They ask that due to these allergies, no strong scents, lotions, or detergents are used by the nanny.



Hourly rate: $17 - $20/hour gross to commensurate with experience+ applicable OT when worked

Approximate annual gross income: $35,360 - $41,600 gross base salary/year

Their needs change from week to week, so although there will be some regular routine tasks, there may be new things here and there with errands, etc. 

This position requires a candidate to have a safe and reliable vehicle for errands but also transporting, at minimum, one child. To be considered, you must have a safe driving history.

Baby’s laundry, organizing toys/clothes, planning outings and playdates, and planning daily “learning” activities will be asked. The nanny must be well versed in first year development and milestones. They would love someone who comes in with a plan for the day with things to do during awake time. They aren’t on a strict schedule, and it’s more baby-lead.


Additional tasks that would be appreciated when the child is napping is running a load of household laundry, unloading/loading the dishwasher, tidying up, wiping down counters, and potentially helping prep some easy family dinners. Occasional errands may be asked to run to the grocery store, etc.


The ideal qualities that would make a good match with this family is someone who is confident, safety-conscious, adaptable, honest and family-oriented. These parents picture someone who can check in often with photos, enjoys taking the baby to dad’s office during lunch to visit, and welcomes going on outings together with mom when she’s able to join. They would love this person to feel like an extension of their family and truly love to care for their little peanut.
