The Michigan Nanny Authority: Kalamazoo is now interviewing for the following position:
A loving family in Kalamazoo is looking to hire a Full-Time Infant Nanny for 40 hours week!
First-time parents are looking to hire an experienced, professional Career Nanny with extensive experience working with newborns and infants to provide top-notch loving care and consistent learning and development to their baby girl. Nanny will work Monday through Friday for an average 8 hours per day, and working hours will fall between 6:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. The exact start and end times will vary from week to week determined by the parent's work schedules. The Nanny's flexibility on time and scheduling, work ethic, and professionalism will be key for this position, as both parents are hospital-based physicians. Family will guarantee a minimum of 40 hours a week, though Nanny may be asked to work more on occasion, and overtime will be paid for every hour over 40 worked each week.
Baby girl is due at the end of April and mother would return to work early-to-mid June. Ideally nanny would start a week or two before mother returns to work.
Nanny will partner with the parents to care for the emotional, social, developmental, and educational needs of the baby girl. The ideal nanny will have a minimum of 2 years of experience working with children in a professional setting, with 1 year of consecutive care of an infant (ideally from birth to age 1), and excellent references. She will have knowledge of and/or experience with various approaches to infant care and be able to adapt to the parent's desires for the child as her grows and her needs change. She will be welcome to give her input and share advice and experiences, but parents want to take the lead in making any changes to the baby's schedule and routine. Nanny should be engaging and attentive, able to plan gross and fine motor skills activities and sensory activities, and should be fostering a love of and excitement for learning and exploring the world around them from day one.
The Nanny will also be responsible for light child-related housekeeping, including: doing the baby's laundry, washing bottles daily and other dishes used, tidying and maintaining organization in the baby's room and play room, and tidying up after herself and the baby in the common areas (living room, kitchen, etc.)
