Hello I will be a freshman in college next fall and I am looking for a nanny job this summer or starting now. I babysit 6 or more different families as well as drive kiddos around for their sports or school clubs. I have always enjoyed playing with children since a young age, just seeing them have fun and making them smile is such a joy. I have also been volunteering off and on since middle school in the kids programs at my church, so I do have quit a bit of experience with all age groups. I babysit families of 1 to families of 5 so I'm really open to whatever age group and number of children

Fun Childcare Provider Who Has An Extensive Child Education And Experience
I have my masters in social work (lmsw) and currently looking for a full time nanny position. I have several years of nanny experience and have a son of my own who I would like to bring with me (1-year-old)

I can watch and take out your dog, give him/her some friendly and loving company and take them on walks! My family has had a dog for 12 years but I have lived away for school for the past 8 years and haven't spent as much time as I would like with him - so I would very much love the chance to be around dogs more before I start my career as a physician (I'm just finishing medical school this semester). Contact me if you'd like any more information!

The Michigan Nanny Authority: Grand Rapids is now interviewing for the following position: A loving family in Cascade is looking to hire a Full-Time Nanny for 33.5 hours a week! Work-from-home Parents are looking to hire an experienced, professional Nanny to provide reliable, loving care for their three children, 5-year-old boy/girl twins and a 4-year-old girl. Nanny will work four days per week; the one weekday off can be Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, and can be decided together by the Nanny and Parents before Nanny starts. Hours during the school year are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 10am to 5pm, and Tuesday and Thursday 7:15am to 5pm, and Nanny will work 4 of those days for a total of 33.5 hours per week. During school breaks, snow days, and the summer, hours will be 8am to 5pm. The Ideal Nanny for this family will be able to start right away! The Nanny will partner with the Parents to care for the daily needs the family s three children and help parents facilitate the children s busy schedules. The 5-year-old twins are in all day Kindergarten at a nearby private school; the Parents provide transportation to school in the morning, and the Nanny will do school pick-up in the afternoon. The 4-year-old is in morning preschool Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and Parents will provide transportation to preschool with Nanny doing school pick-up. When the twins are at school, Nanny will be with the 4-year-old, playing and learning together, arranging play dates and field trips, and taking her to her weekly dance class and any other scheduled activities. After school, Nanny will provide snacks, help with homework, oversee chores, and facilitate playtime with all three children. In the summer, Nanny will be encouraged to seek out and plan activities, play dates, and field trips to keep the children active, engaged, and learning throughout the summer. The Family provides a vehicle for Nanny to drive when on duty to transport the children. Nanny will provide transportation for and oversee any after-school activities scheduled for any of the three children, such as once-weekly afternoon occupational therapy appointments for the boy twin, who has Downs Syndrome. The boy is very high-functioning, thriving in the same Kindergarten classroom with his sister, and receives extra support with weekly occupational therapy and speech therapy. The Nanny needs no special needs experience or extra training, just the usual measures of love, compassion, and patience found in all stellar nannies! The Nanny will also be responsible for light, child-related housekeeping, such as the maintaining the children s laundry and clothing organization, helping with family dishes, helping keep main areas and play areas tidy and organized in between professional house cleanings, helping children maintain cleanliness in their rooms, and overseeing completion of any chores assigned to the children. The Parents both work-from-home in offices that are separated from the main areas of the house. Having always had a nanny, the Parents are fantastic at setting and maintaining boundaries with the Nanny and children during their work day, and always defer authority to the Nanny when she's on duty. For the Nanny, flexibility and a fluid teamwork mindset are key, as the Parents want to be involved in the daily activities as their work schedules allow, which may mean having lunch with the 4-year-old when she's not in school, or taking over school pick-up or transportation to activities on a random afternoon. Open communication and a team approach to providing care for the children will make executing any last-minute changes to the schedule effortless. The family has two large, friendly older dogs who will want lots of love but need very little care during the day, other than an occasional let-out in an invisible-fence-protected yard. Nanny should be comfortable sharing their space and days with the family's furry children!
