  1. Busy, dual working family in Royal Oak needs a full time nanny for their 2 young boys and one on the way. The boys are 2 and 4 years old, and they are expecting their third little boy in early January. This family would like a nanny from 7:30-4:45pm M-F. They are offering competitive hourly rate, guaranteed hours, open to cash or taxed, 4 weeks paid vacation and paid holidays. Nanny must have their own vehicle, and have a great driving record. Start date is ASAP but semi flexible as they do currently have a nanny.Family is originally from Chicago and has had nannies in the past. They would like someone to become part of their family and stay long term (up to 5 years or more). Mom works from home in her main floor office and says she is good at not hovering. She expects to be around more for the first week or so for training. Family has an 85 lb dog who is friendly and the nanny doesn’t have any responsibilities with the dog. He does beg for food but sleeps most of the day. They have a dog walker and the parents are responsible for feedings etc.

Since Mom is due in January, Mom has 4 months of maternity. The hours will be cut slightly 25-30 during that period, to be determined based upon the mother’s and baby’s health, but this would be offset by the increased pay rate for three children. Also, once maternity leave is complete, hours would return to the full time at the higher rate.

4 year old son has sensory processing disorder. He needs a nanny with a little more patience than usual. He is extremely high-functioning and highly verbal and communicative. He has an occupational therapist but the nanny doesn’t need any special training. The family will teach the nanny about what works for him and some tips.

This family would like a nanny who is assertive, and takes control of the house. They have a nanny currently but she kind of takes a back seat in the mornings when the hustle and bustle is happening. The family needs a nanny who will jump right in.

The 4 year old goes to preschool 3 mornings a week, and the 2 year old also has all kinds of fun classes the nanny will need to take him to. The kids do better when they are busy and out of the house. They both nap from 1-3 currently. General housekeeping duties will be requested such as but not limited to: children’s laundry, dishes, light meal prep, wiping down counters, swiffering the main rooms, emptying diaper genies, stocking children’s essentials (diapers, wipes etc) and changing the kids bed sheets once a week.

 

2. Super sweet West Bloomfield family needs an almost full time nanny for their two girls ages 16 months and 5 years old. The hours needed are M-F 10am-4pm so 30 hours per week. They have had their current nanny for 4.5 years, and the love her like family. They are hoping to find someone long term, who can become part of their family. They need a nanny by October 30th at the latest, the sooner the better though to shadow with current nanny.

Family is offering ~$15/hr, 2 weeks paid vacation, 6 paid federal holidays, 3 sick/personal days and guaranteed 30 hours a week. This family is very down to earth and laid back. They hope to find a nanny who is much the same. The 5 year old girl is in ‘early 5’s’ right now M-Th 9-3. She will go to kindergarten next year. Nanny will be in charge of pick-ups in the Mom’s car. Mom works from home, and is breastfeeding the baby during the day. She is very good at not coming out of the office unless it’s to eat or feed the baby. They really hope to find a nanny who can engage with the little one and her older sister at the same time (mostly on Friday’s).

They plan to have another child at some point, so this is a very long term position. They want a nanny who is very loving, kind, patient and not super strict. They still want their kids to have manners but don’t need a dictator. They are well-behaved girls who love art and music. This family likes messes, and knows that people make mistakes.

Job duties include but are not limited to: children’s laundry, children’s meals, loading/unloading dishwasher, wiping down countertops, picking up toys, and general tidying up at the end of the day. They would love someone who is CPR/FA certified or willing to do so. This family is Christian and Jewish and hopes to find a nanny who is open minded.

3. Busy Royal Oak family needs a strict part time nanny for their two children. The kids are 4 (boy) and 2 (girl) years old. They need help M-F from 7am-12pm, with the possibility for more hours if the nanny wants it. They currently have 3 nannies, all working different shifts. The Mom is a doctor, works long hours and is on call often. Dad travels frequently so they have the need for multiple nannies. Occasional overnights or weekends might be requested in advance. Family is paying $15/hr, paid holidays off and 1 vacation day per month worked. Mileage reimbursement will also be given for any miles driven with the children in nannies vehicle.

Nanny would be mainly responsible for the little girl, because the son goes to school 5 days a week. Applicants must have a safe, reliable vehicle that can fit two car seats. The afternoon nanny picks up the son from school, but there might be some occasions where the AM nanny needs to drive both children. Previous nanny experience is required, as well as up to date vaccinations. Family is Indian, and hopes to find a nanny who is open minded, stricter, well-cultured and aware of differences in child-rearing. Family prefers a fit, healthy nanny, who is over the age of 30. The family prefers nannies who are bilingual, and will give preference to college educated nannies as well. The Mom only speaks in their Indian language to the children, so a nanny who is comfortable with that is needed. The children are fluent in English.

The grandparents are out of state, but have daily FaceTime conversations with the children. The nanny will be required to set those conversations up for the children. The grandparents come into town and stay with the family at least once every other month. They do hover slightly, so a strong nanny is needed. Family has nanny/security cameras in some common areas of the house. Both children eat most foods, they just don’t eat large quantities. Feeding is a struggle for these kids, so nanny needs to do a decent amount of coaxing/begging. The kids are mostly vegetarian (mom is full vegetarian) and occasionally eat eggs, fish etc. Meal prep for the kids is required. If the 2 year old goes to school twice a week, the nanny must be able to be a house manager on those mornings. Those duties would include: cleaning up dishes from breakfast, starting lunch/dinner prep, wiping down counters, wiping off booster/high chairs, helping with laundry (including Mom’s), making children’s beds etc. Grocery shopping might be requested on days when both children are in school. On the days when the 2 year old is not in school, nanny should tidy up in the morning but mostly focus on her. Family does have a housekeeper every Friday.

The kids are going to a Spanish immersion program at their Montessori school, so the family gives preference to nannies who speak Spanish. Their family is very family centered, and hope to find a nanny who is too. They want their nanny to feel comfortable in their home, and many of their nannies have become members of their family. If time allows, they’d love their nanny to take the kids to do fun activities. There is also a playground/park and library down the road from their house. They have a double stroller and single strollers for adventures.

4. Temp Nanny needed immediately in Oakland Township! They are just north of Rochester/Rochester Hills. This family also will need a perm nanny, the job description is exactly the same. They need someone to start by Monday October 23 on a temp basis while they are interviewing others for the perm job. Since their start date is so quick, this is why we are putting a temp in place first, while interviewing permanent nannies.

New parents in Oakland Township need a full time nanny for their 4 month old daughter. They are looking for M-F 8-5pm, long term, career nanny. They are hoping to stick around the $14-15/hr mark. They are offering 2 weeks paid vacation, 6 federal holidays off/paid, 5 paid sick/personal days, and mileage reimbursement.

They are a very loving family, and are looking for someone engaging and experienced. This family will need help with light housekeeping, tidying up, meal prep, bottle cleaning, baby laundry, and occasionally letting out their friendly goldendoodle. They are looking for a nanny who can teach their daughter with no screen time. They are hoping to find a nanny who wants to become a part of their family!

Personality traits they are looking for: engaging, loving, caring, patient, proactive, responsible, mature, nurturing, attentive and animal friendly. Mom works from home full time and Dad occasionally works from home. Mom likes to come out occasionally in between calls to say hello to the baby, but doesn’t plan on being a ‘hover mom’.

Perfect Nanny Match Matched 100 Nannies and Families!

Hi everyone!

Happy Fall! Guess what?! I was making a master list of all my clients and who their nanny is today, and realized that I have hit 100 matches! That’s right, 100 families have worked with my company, to find amazing childcare. 100 nannies now have employment and can go out and change the lives of children in the Southeast Michigan area! I am SO proud to be the coordinator between the two parties.

When I started my company in late 2012, I had NO idea I would grow to become one of the biggest nanny agencies in the Metro Detroit area. I am so thankful to all the clients who have trusted me with their families. Working with a stranger (me) to help find another stranger to work in your home takes a lot of guts! Please continue to work on your relationship with your nanny/babysitter everyday. The bond they have with your kids is stronger than you know.

I am even more thankful to all the wonderful nannies who have gone through my vetting process to be matched with a family. All of the wonderful ladies and gentleman I have helped employ mean so much to me, and my business. 100 nannies strong, and here’s to 100’s more!

Please reach out to me if you ever need anything regarding your current nanny, or if you’re interested in finding a new caregiver! We also have temp nannies starting at $20 per day! Just in time for flu season!

Thanks and happy Fall!
