WHO: Professor Mom and business owner Dad are seeking an experienced, knowledgeable and nurturing nanny for their treasured newborn! Mom returns to work after the holidays (Jan), and Dad works from his home office when he isn’t traveling. This brand new family of 3– and their beloved fur baby who make 4! — are hoping to find their perfect fit as they continue to pursue their careers and balance their family life. 

WHAT: This beautiful family is offering two options for their ideal nanny situation, and intend to work together with you to create the best environment for growth for their new baby. Both parents anticipate their work schedules getting progressively busier in the coming years, and would love to rely on their nanny to consider them her long-term career family. 

Please read the below 2 options carefully: 

ASAP until August 2020: Full-Time Hours (40) offered; Once Mom returns to work (in January), Mondays/Fridays are her busiest days. 

August 2020: Transition to Part-Time Nanny/ Part-Time Household Manager, which would be their ideal long-term goal. 

When asked what were some important characteristics for their future nanny, this intelligent couple responded with “ someone flexible who will love and spoil our baby, someone who has kindness and common sense and can be both gentle and laid back”. We thought that any baby would love that description, and believe we can find them their perfect nanny! 

Together with caring for baby, you’ll be responsible for small household tasks like easy food prep, walking the family pooch (who’s adorable!), the baby’s laundry, and tidying up baby’s play areas. This family values open and direct communication, and will anticipate that you’ll ask them for any guidance if needed without making assumptions.

YOU...Should be an experienced infant nanny, meaning you’ve cared for the tiniest of us for a significant portion of your nanny career (3+ years), and can offer wisdom and care that perhaps surpasses even the newest of parents. You are patient, loving, gentle and knowledgeable, and have been seeking a family where your skills and initiative will be valued for many years to come.

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."
