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

A loving family in West Kalamazoo is seeking a Full-Time Nanny for 40 hours per week!

Professional work-from-home parents are looking to hire a mature, experienced, and dedicated Professional Nanny to provide structured and engaged loving care for the family’s two girls, who are 3.5 years old and 6 months old.  The Nanny will work 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday for a total of 40 hours per week.  Each week’s hours are guaranteed, and overtime will be paid for every hour worked over 40 hours in a week.  The family would like their Nanny to start by the end of September.

The Nanny will partner with the parents to care for the emotional, social, developmental, and educational needs of the family’s two girls.  She will be a loving, enthusiastic caregiver who is invested in the children’s health, safety, education, and growth.  Nanny should feel comfortable and confident providing loving, engaging, and playful care for both children, planning activities and creating experiences that will encourage their learning and development!  Nanny will also help with light child-related housekeeping such as doing the girls’ laundry, tidying and maintaining organization in the children’s rooms and play areas (while including the 3.5 year old as much as possible), and doing dishes and other clean up after meals and activities.

Both parents work primarily from home currently due to COVID-19 precautions at their workplaces.  The mother may return to her office in 2021, but the father will always work primarily from home.  Each parent has an office in the home that is separate from the main areas of the house, but Nanny should be comfortable with sharing her workspace and daily routine with the parents.  The parents are planning to create a respectful environment where Nanny’s authority is enforced while she’s on duty and they will be as minimally disruptive throughout the day as possible!

The family is removing their children from their beloved daycare center for at least the next year to limit COVID exposure, and will ask for their Nanny’s help in limiting this exposure as well.  The family would like Nanny to plan to stay near the home with lots of outside time, walks, and parent-approved socially-distanced activities, and they will appreciate her assurance that she’s following any existing executive orders set by the governor meant to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (ie. reasonable social distancing and wearing a mask in public places, frequent hand-washing, regular body temperature checks, etc.)

The ideal Nanny for this family has an ingrained passion for working with children, has a strong moral compass, and has a positive and inclusive outlook on life.  She is a professional career Nanny with solid work ethic and a high level of reliability and flexibility, has the ability to multi-task to meet the needs of two children of different age levels at once, and has a collaborative approach to sharing ideas and feedback with the parents about the children’s development and needs as they change.  She is a maternal and loving caregiver who will naturally become an important part of the family and love the children in her care as if they were her own.  She is also a creative and engaging playmate, who believes in laying an early foundation for learning by engaging the children with books, songs, toys, and exploring the world around them.  The parents would prefer a Nanny with a degree in Early Childhood Education and at least two years of experience working in a professional childcare environment, and they are open to hiring a Nanny who has a child of similar age to their oldest.

This position requires a one-year commitment to the family.  Pay will start at $16-18 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. She will also have at least one year of professional childcare experience working with infants.
  • 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.)
