Duties: care of children before and after school and on weekends. The parent is typically around to assist for most of the morning prior to school, for dinner and the bedtime routine and the weekend days. The nanny is responsible for getting up to the children if needed during the night. The nanny is responsible for providing lunches and snacks for the children on all days and assisting with breakfast. The nanny is responsible for the children’s laundry. The nanny is responsible for managing school requirements (supervising homework, bringing in items as needed, etc.). The nanny is responsible for contributing to the house being clean, both by ensuring the children clean up after themselves and helping with dishes/tidy up as necessary (there is a regular cleaner who does deep cleaning).

ROTA length is dependent on the candidate. The family prefers 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off but will do 1 week on and off if necessary. To consider the longer ROTA length, candidates must have demonstrated experience working at least 2 weeks on periods. Candidates must live within a reasonable (~3-hour drive) of Los Altos. Relocation will not be considered for this position.

Children are in school, so the nanny typically gets 3 hours of personal time each day during the week. This time is paid however, and the nanny will be expected to provide care if school is out or any of the children are sick. Nanny may occasionally be asked to do personal assistant-type tasks during this time.

Client will pay for hours worked during trials and reasonable travel costs. Travel time during trials is not covered.
