A warm, respectful, and playful family in Berkeley is seeking a thoughtful, loving, and patient part-time nanny/family assistant for their two children (ages 6 and 11) to start soon, ideally by the first week of January.
The family is looking for a kind and empathetic nanny/family assistant who can be part of their family team long-term. Someone who wants to develop a close relationship with the children, is experienced in caring for school-age children, and comes with a proactive and helpful approach would be perfect for this family. The 11-year-old is calm-natured with a sense of humor and loves to read, draw, play piano, computers, and programming. The 6-year-old is a bit quieter and enjoys legos, building forts, imaginative play, drawing and painting, and anything engineering-related. The single-working father works from home in a separate space. The family is structured especially during the week, but generally, go with the flow and are easy-going in a casual household.
Duties include everything childcare related – school pick up and driving to activities (the family has a car available to use on the job), preparing meals and snacks for the children, keeping the children’s rooms and common areas organized and tidy, children’s laundry and dishes, and planning age-appropriate and fun activities for the children. Before school pick-up, duties will include running errands, grocery shopping, scheduling appointments for the children, and light pet care (they have a sweet dog and cat so please be pet-friendly). The family is cautious with Covid; strong and open communication is needed. Don’t miss out on meeting this great family!
Schedule: Monday to Friday from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Compensation: $35-$40/hour DOE + paid sick days, holidays, and vacation days, and family vehicle to use while on the job.
