START DATE: end of September / early October

An active, warm family in Half Moon Bay is seeking a nanny to help care for newborn twins (due December) and a 3-year-old. The nanny will be tag-teaming with the stay-at-home mother to provide loving, nurturing care for the children in the family’s home and in activities around the community. This is a long-term position, and the family is hoping to find a caregiver who will integrate into their family life for years to come.

Their ideal nanny would have experience both working with other families and in an early childcare education setting. Experience working with multiples is a plus; experience with newborns is required. Nanny must enjoy the outdoors and be able to keep up with their very active toddler.

The nanny will be working as part of a team with the mother, a night nanny, and an afternoon/evening nanny, and occasional grandparent help, so they must be comfortable switching off duties throughout the day and communicating clearly with other caregivers.

They welcome any additional skills or interests the nanny can bring to the family, such as an interest in art, music, or sports, or a second language.

Note: must be comfortable sharing the home with a large (but well trained) German shepherd dog, although he or she would not be responsible for his care and would not be left alone with him and the children. They also must be comfortable with a somewhat rural setting, and all that goes with that (ie, occasional run ins with spiders and snakes around the property). Willingness to occasionally travel with the family for up to a week at a time is appreciated but not required. This would mean accompanying the family on trips up to 3-4 times per year for a weekend to 10 days (mostly domestic with one international trip per year).
