Job Description

Family in Rosenberg is seeking a Nanny Manager to care for their children and household.

Duties will include:

  • Caring for the children including dressing, feeding, changing, putting down for naps, bathing, etc.
  • Engaging the children in indoor and outdoor, age-appropriate play, games, activities, walks, outings, etc. to encourage growth and development
  • Keeping the common areas and children’s areas tidy (load/unload dishwasher, wiping down counters, putting toys away, wash/sterilize bottles, etc.)
  • Running errands (grocery store, post office, etc.) and/or transporting children as needed
  • Meal prep – chopping, washing vegetables, etc. – the children will also participate in housework/meal prep

The nanny will be open to the parenting methodologies employed by the family (less is more; not a lot of toys; don’t overly praise; limit activities), while also bringing their own personality to the position.
Nanny will be:

  • Experienced, confident, and capable in all areas of infant/baby, toddler, and preschool care; experienced independently handle multiple young children at once
  • Build the children’s independence (autonomy, competence, think for themselves) – the family has dishes, toys, etc. at the child’s level, and the nanny will need to be extremely patient (e.g., wait 5 minutes for a child to put their own toothpaste on their toothbrush); Nanny will have children assist her with creative, age-appropriate tasks for meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, etc.
  • Willing to read books/literature that is relevant to their parenting philosophy (would be paid for this time)
  • Seeking a long-term position
  • Mutually respectful (Mom was formerly a Nanny and Household Manager so she understands the role, and has expectations based on her own experience)
  • Creative and intelligent
  • An excellent communicator, with a straightforward nature
  • Conscientious, and naturally attuned to the emotions and needs of babies/children
  • Willing to wear fragrance free products at work – including nanny’s own detergent used to launder their work clothes
  • Be comfortable with an indoor, 4 lb rabbit (in a large crate filled with hay) – when/if children want to play with the rabbit, help take her out and then return to the crate; sometimes the children like to feed or refill her water dish – help/supervise them when they want to do this)
  • Plus, but not required: Montessori or Waldorf background/knowledge
  • Plus, but not required: ability to work two days/week 1-9p instead of 9a-5p

Note: 13-mo-old was born 28 weeks premature, and is still a little “behind” – no major complications but feeding takes a lot of patience as he has an extremely sensitive gag reflex and still does not hold much volume in his stomach at one time.

Dad works full-time in an extremely time-consuming position, and Mom plans to return to work part-time from home.
