Intuitive, Infant-Savvy Nanny Needed For 6-Month Contract Near Boston, MA

East Coast

A caring family of three based just outside of Boston is seeking an intuitive infant-savvy nanny to join them for a 6-month-contract in caring for their 3-month-old!

 

  • Location: Melrose, Massachusetts
  • Ages of children: Their child will be 3 months old at the start of the position!
  • Start date/Contract dates: September through February 2023, with some flexibility on start and end dates for the perfect applicant!
  • Schedule: 40 hours/week with generally working hours falling between 8am-6pm Monday-Friday. The family would welcome a candidate who is open to occasional date night or weekend support!
  • Compensation: The family is offering $30-35/hour based on the 40-hour/week schedule, which equates to a 6-month base contract compensation of $32-37k dependent on experience and the agreed-upon schedule. The family may be open to candidates seeking a higher compensation package commensurate with experience.
  • Benefits: Benefits like paid time off, relocation assistance, paid holidays, a vehicle for professional use, and a healthcare stipend may be available depending on the candidate’s need.
  • Live-in/Live-out: Live-out. Strong preference for candidates who are already local to the Boston area. For relocation candidates, a housing stipend to support short-term housing will be available.

Household dynamic:

  • These busy and loving first-time parents just welcomed their baby boy this May, and are looking for a nanny to support their family before he will likely enter daycare in the winter or spring of 2023! Their baby was born prematurely, so the family hopes to find a candidate who is confident in supporting his needs and brings a patient, warm demeanor to their role.
  • The family, along with their two short-haired cats, is based just outside of Boston in Melrose, MA. Mom works from home, while dad works at the office during the week. While mom is at home, she looks forward to partnering with a candidate who is independent and confident at jumping right in to provide care. Both parents are eager to welcome a collaborative, kind care provider to their family!

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for someone who is gentle, patient, and comfortable caring for a preemie. A candidate who brings infant experience and a strong intuition for baby’s needs will thrive in this role, as well as the skills to create great foundations and routines as he grows and thrives!
  • This is a child-focused role, so all responsibilities will be related to the child. A candidate who is willing to keep up with bottle preparation and sanitization, child-related laundry, and tidying the baby’s space will be appreciated.
  • While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with someone who has previously supported a preemie!

Qualifications:

  • 3 years of professional childcare experience
  • Knowledge and experience with age-appropriate developmental milestones
  • Fully vaccinated and boosted (when eligible) against COVID-19 prior to starting date in accordance with applicable laws
  • Cat friendly!
  • Valid driver’s license

This position is open to all Adventure Nannies candidates who are legally able to work in the US. Out of respect for the privacy of the families we work with, we cannot provide any additional information about this position other than what has already been provided in the job description.
