WHO: A busy mom completing her Ph.D. is seeking a kind and energetic nanny/household manager. Due to Mom’s health issues, she can become exhausted quickly especially in hot temperatures, so a nanny’s help will be warmly welcomed in their home. Children spend time with their dad about one evening a week and every other weekend. Tentative hours would be: Taking the children to school, 7AM-8AM, then taking the dog for a walk in the AM. School pickup will vary as their after-school activities end, usually between 4PM-5:30PM, and she asks the nanny stay to assist until 7PM.  The nanny would not be expected to stay until school pickups, leaving her (the nanny’s) afternoon’s free.
Mom also requests help one weekend day a week for 5-7 hours. 

WHAT: Taking the children to school and assisting with the family dog, as well as school pickups and after-school care are what this great position is offering! While the family has a house cleaner, Mom would super appreciate assistance with the children’s laundry, organization and surface tidying. Another major help for this family would be meal prep.  Currently, the children love to eat rice and noodles, but culinary insight from the nanny— such as how to add protein and colorful food to their diets would be met with great thankfulness.  Childcare tasks will be transporting children to/from school, bike rides, swimming, artwork, and hikes. After school assistance would be snack, play, pool, homework help, and meal prep.  This family deeply values someone who has boundless energy, is proactive and trustworthy. Mom views the nanny relationship as someone who is a welcome and loved addition to their family! 

YOU:  This fabulous mom is in need of a super nanny— someone who thrives on helping her run her house so she can focus on her Ph.D. work and not get exhausted with household tasks.  If you have lots of energy, are excellent at time management and organization, and are longing to make a valuable impact on a family’s life, then this position may be exactly what you’re looking for!

WHO: Busy family with three fantastic children are seeking a proactive  and outgoing nanny to join their family! The 6 year-old will be in full-day school, the 3 year-old will be half day preschool, so your main responsibility will be caring for the baby (11 weeks old!). Mom is a busy physician, and Dad works from home. They are also open to the option of offering 24 hours from the beginning and having nanny do household help on the 4th day; PLUS, the possibility of a  monthly date night to increase hours even more! 

WHAT: Since your primary job will be caring for the new baby, this family would love you to take him out and about on walks, nurturing his sense of adventure from a young age! They ask that you have your own vehicle, so that you’re able to also explore Pittsburgh by taking the children to the city’s great museums. This family really values punctuality, reliability, and genuine interaction with their children. While they would appreciate help with some light house cleaning (things like children’s laundry, light meal prep), your main priority is their precious children! 

YOU:  If you know (and love!) taking your little charges on adventures, are capable and confident that you’ll be responsible, reliable, and joyful, then this position is for you!

WHO: This wonderful family is seeking not just any nanny, but a nanny who’ll become like part of their family! Mom works from home; your main responsibilities will be caring for the twins, as the 5 year old is in full day kindergarten. They value open and honest communication, and as they maintain a chill and relaxed vibe, they would love for you to do the same by creating a stress-free environment. 

WHAT: Your top priority will be the twins; ideally, you’d be an experienced infant nanny with knowledge of developmental milestones! Things like activities and crafts to nurture their minds and grow their creativity would be much appreciated. They hope for someone very sweet and gentle, kind and loving. You’ll be demonstrating excellent moral character as you care for the babies and the 5 year old, and as trust continues to build, the opportunity to take the twins out and about will be encouraged. Some minor basic housework (like cleanup after meal and snack time, diapers and baby’s room straightening) would be very helpful. 

YOU:  This family is ready to welcome you with open arms; they deeply value the nanny/family dynamic and are willing to give and reward an excellent nanny. You should be energetic and ready for 10-11 hour days, but the 3 day schedule allows for adequate rest in between shifts. This promises to be an exceptional position!

What They're Saying

"When John and I realized we needed to hire a nanny, I knew right away I would be calling Amy from East Wind Nannies. I had been on the other side of the interviewing table just a few years prior and was placed by Amy to work as a nanny for an adorable little girl. Prior to working with East Wind Nannies I had been teaching Kindergarten for several years and earned my M.Ed. Quite honestly I was surprised she was so strict with the interview process. Even with all my certifications, experience, and education, she said she would not be able to re-schedule my interview when I called to tell her my electric was out the very morning of my interview. I did manage to arrive on time and was later placed with a family who I'm still in contact with today. It was for this reason I knew I wanted to use East Wind Nannies when we were ready to hire a nanny of our own. I wanted someone who was dependable, educated, and loving. Amy gave me her honest opinion of which nanny she thought would be able to meet our needs and fit our family. I am so grateful for her honesty and integrity. Our nanny is vibrant, kind, and on time! I would not hesitate to work with Amy again."
