We are a dual parent working family in Manhattan and we will spend the summer in East Hampton. We need someone to help us with childcare and be a happy, healthy addition to our family! We had a live in nanny for the past 8 years who joined us from college. She has been an AMAZING part of our family and she left to finish her master's degree in education and start teaching! Since then, we have had a nanny for 1 year (who took a gap year before returning to college). We have three wonderful, funny kids: age 12 (boy) and age 10 (girl) and a 5 year old boy. We spend most of our time in Manhattan, but are in East Hampton for the summer. Manhattan All 3 kids will be in school. The job will basically be from 7:30-9AM and 2:30PM - evenings during the week, occasional days (when kids are off for example), occasional weekends and such. We are very respectful of hours and making sure we are getting the support we need and you are having a good experience in NYC. The kids have activities, so some days you will pick all 3 up and most days you will get one and bring that one to their activity. You will help with dinner and homework help is very important. This generally means keeping up on what they each have to do and "gently reminding" them to do it! Organization and being calm are key attributes. The 5 year old can be asking you to read to him while you have to ensure the older ones are focussed on what he needs to do etc. Most often me (the Mom) or another sitter will have one kid, they are rarely all home at the same time! But I like to describe the "worst case" and make sure that chaos is something you remember from your childhood or you have babysat for :) You have your own room in Manhattan, great light, and share a bathroom with the kids. Summer and some weekends We have a pool (so safe swimming and watching is essential), we live 1 mile to the beach and have bikes and a car for use, and walking distance to the town of Waiscott and about 4 miles to Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton and East Hampton. Your room is private with its own bath and beautiful light. Safe Driving is essential! The hours will be somewhat flexible, but likely 7-8:30AM some mornings and 2PM - evening on days that you are working. It will include some nights (till 10PM) and some weekends. But we will ensure you will have time off to be a tourist and enjoy the city. This is not a good role for someone who plans to be out very late all the time. Your free time is your own and we are looking for a respectful, considerate person and who will put our kids' care as their first priority. This role is a full time nanny position, in that this person is responsible for the kids. This includes getting them ready for school/sports/pool/activities, being responsible for their school bags etc, picking the kids up and doing activities. This also includes basic cleaning (not heavy cleaning), laundry for kids, running and clearing the dishwasher etc, managing the chores the kid's are responsible for... We would love someone who can cook healthy, interesting meals for the kids. Someone who can help us teach good manners and disipline. We care about their school work, so someone who can do homework and read and support curiosity. For example, maybe plan events to learn about a new country, make a meal from that country and get books from the library about it. We did this last summer with Russia and China and had so much fun. Spanish is a big plus (kids are learning spanish in school). Being able to play any beginner piano with the kids is also great. The kids all take beginner lessons. Thank you so much for reading this. Happy to answer all questions and get to know you better.
