The Michigan Nanny Authority is now interviewing for the following position:

A loving family in Holland is looking to hire a Part-Time Nanny for 45 hours every other week!

Professional parents are looking to hire an experienced and reliable Nanny to provide top-notch loving care and consistent learning and development to the family’s almost-3-year-old daughter.  The mother works a 7-day-on/7-day-off schedule from Friday to Thursday, so Nanny will work Friday on Week 1 and Monday through Thursday on Week 2 on a consistent basis.  On the days she works, Nanny will work 6:30am to 3:30pm.  Overtime will be paid for every hour worked over 40 in a week.  Nanny may have the opportunity to work some hours on the weeks she has “off” and will be given first right of refusal for all night and weekend babysitting opportunities.  Desired start date is August 24th, 2020 and interviews are available immediately.  The family is open to having a Nanny bring her own child of similar age to work with her.

The Nanny will partner with the parents to care for the emotional, social, developmental, and educational needs of the toddler girl.  She will be a loving, maternal caregiver who is invested in the toddler’s health, safety, and growth.  She will help with teaching early preschool skills, like letter, shape, color, and number recognition, language development, and will use playtime to encourage sensory exploration and motor skill development.  She will be encouraged to plan play dates, story times, field trips, and other activities outside the home to help with the toddler’s education and social development.

The Nanny will also be responsible for light housekeeping, including doing the toddler’s laundry, tidying and maintaining organization in the toddler’s room and play areas, and doing dishes and other clean up after meals and activities.

The family would like Nanny to be comfortable with their three friendly dogs.  She should not have allergies to dogs and ideally will help out by letting the dogs into the fenced backyard as needed.

The ideal Nanny for this family is friendly, easy-going, and kind to everyone.  She is incredibly flexible and reliable, and able to accommodate the parents’ unusual work schedule.  She is a maternal and loving caregiver and believes in laying an early foundation for learning by engaging the child with books, songs, toys, and exploring the world around her.  She will have a minimum of 2 years of professional childcare experience working with toddlers and/or preschool-aged children and excellent references.  Her knowledge and experience will be a valuable resource for the parents, and will give them confidence in her ability to handle anything that comes her way.  She will be comfortable and confident in keeping open lines of communication with the parents.

This position requires a long-term commitment to the family, and preference will be given to a candidate who is able to stay for more than two years.  Pay will start at $19-22 per hour, and nanny will have guaranteed pay, paid time off, paid holidays, mileage reimbursement, and other standard nanny benefits.  Details will be discussed with qualified nannies at an in-person interview.

The right candidate:

  • Will have AT LEAST two years of part- or full-time nanny experience, or at least two years in a daycare or classroom setting.
  • Must be at least 21 years old and legal to work in the USA.
  • Will have her own reliable transportation, a valid driver’s license, and a clean driving record.
  • Must pass a thorough background check and drug test before starting the position.
  • Must have current CPR/First aid certification or agree to complete a class within 90 days of start-date.
  • Must have flu shot and DTaP vaccine, or be willing to get both before her start date, and must be willing to get a flu shot annually (parents will pay for any immunizations.)
