If you’re interested in any of the above positions, please make sure you have applied on my agency website first.

If you’ve already applied on then please just email me with your interest!

1.  Ann Arbor family needs full-time (up to 50 hours/week) nanny/house manager for their 3 children.M-F 8-6pm. Family will pay for overtime hours. They have twin 15 month old girls and a 5 year old boy. Start date is flexible but ASAP. Pay rate is DOE and very competitive.  Mom will be home (or in and out) on Thursdays and Fridays. Nanny must be comfortable co-nannying with the Mom. She would like to ask the nanny to trade kids/tasks with her ie: Mom was just doing the laundry and the nanny was playing with the twins, now Mom would like nanny to go finish up the laundry while Mom spends some quality time with the twins. The nanny will most likely be doing more house management on Th/Fri. Nanny must get her flu shot and T-Dap vaccine.

Nanny must be willing to have a long term position. They’ve had nannies before (one was with them for 3.5 years), and give 3 weeks paid vacation plus paid holidays. They like having a nanny feel comfortable in their home, and with the parents. Family could do cash or taxed. This position does require some housekeeping/food prep/organizational skills. The family has a housekeeper, but it’d be nice if the nanny could help in between major cleans. Clean driving record is a must. Non-smoker. They would prefer someone a little older, or at least a very mature younger person. Mom is a little type-A, so someone who can take initiative and be organized is preferred. Start date: ASAP.

2. Grosse Pointe family needs 2  house manager/nannies for their 2 boys. Boys are 7 and 11. The 11 year old goes to school and lives at the house full time. He has Williams Syndrome (google it). He’s extremely high functioning. Technically in special needs classes, but he’s right on the edge of being able to go into general public schools. 7 year old will be there every other week (shared custody with his Mom).

Family needs 6 days a week, 70 hours a week. M-Sat 7am-6:30pm This will be split between two nannies. Both nannies will get 35 hours per week guaranteed. Both nannies will do 3 days per week. 1st week will be MWFr, 2nd week will be TThSa then you swap back to MWFr etc. Each nanny will work 2 Saturdays per month. 

Family prefers someone a little older, maybe 30-60 years of age. They need someone reliable, timely, responsible and experienced. Position is $17/hr. Must have a clean background check, non-smoking, clean driving record, 2+ years of experience, reachable references and make a 1-year commitment at least. Paid vacation will be offered after the nanny has been with the family for 3 months. Family does travel domestically and internationally a few times per year, and would like to hire a nanny who would be willing to come along (all expenses paid of course). This is not a must, but preferred.

This family needs someone to do very light housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal prep, make breakfasts and lunch for kids, dinner for family, run errands, make appointments, organizing etc, while the boys are in school. Mom is extremely organized with shopping lists, meal plans, recipes etc, so as long as someone can follow a recipe, and direction, they will be fine. They currently have a nanny/house manager/property manager on duty until May 1st. She will be training the new nannies/house managers. Start date May 1st.

3. Saline family needs an approximately 35 hour a week nanny for their two children ages 12 and 10. The hours are M-F 3-9 pm. Oftentimes the Mom comes home earlier than 9, but that would most likely be the latest they would keep you. Position starts early May . Mom travels, so someone who is flexible (with advanced notice) is required. Occasionally the family will need before school help (maybe 3 times per month) some overnights (maybe 4 per night) and very occasional weekend hours (with advance notice). Family is paying a weekly salary of around $500+. This is a taxed position, and it is around $26k+ yearly. They could also pay hourly (with guaranteed hours) instead of a weekly salary if the nanny prefers.

Family requires that the nanny has their own, reliable vehicle to pick ups and drop offs. They had a nanny who has been with them for 4 years. This family treats their nanny like family, and hopes to find someone who is very comfortable with them. They hope to pay a livable yearly wage so the nanny can be more flexible for their family. This is a really amazing family, the Mom is easy to work with and the kids are so sweet!

In the summer, the hours will be a little more than 35, but the nanny also gets 4 paid weeks of vacation. So the average hours for the year are 35, but in the school year will most likely be less. Helping the children do their chores (laundry, put away dishes, homework) is a must. Some help with the family laundry would be helpful and just general tidying up. Homework help is really the biggest job responsibility, so someone who is college educated is preferred (6th grade math is hard!). Must be a non-smoker. Someone who brings their own child to work may apply. This is a long term position. Family can be flexible on salary/hours etc for the right candidate.

4. West Bloomfield family needs a full time nanny for their 2 little girls, ages 3 and 5. This will be a long term position. Hours are M-F 8-6. Pay is negotiable, around $16/hr taxed. Both girls will be home in the summer, but 5 year old will go to school in the fall. This position could start now, on a part time basis and move to full time. Or the position can start full time in June. The family had the 3 year old in Montessori school previously, but would consider dropping the school completely in the Fall as long as the nanny had an interest in teaching her. The family also has the option (depending on what the nanny wants) to put her in Montessori part time and have the nanny the other days. For right now, we can assume that this will be a long term, full time position.

The family needs someone who can handle the activity of two adorable, rambunctious little girls. They also need someone who is stern, but still loving. The family is absolutely wonderful. They are very flexible, understanding, and caring. They will be offering paid vacation and paid holidays. Local outings for the girls is encouraged, nanny needs to have her own well-maintained vehicle for use (with reimbursement).

This family would love to have someone who has worked as a teacher, especially someone with a Montessori background. If someone has their college education, that would be a plus. Also, if someone knew how to play the piano and could teach the girls a thing or two, that’d be nice. None of these items are necessary, just helpful. This family needs a non-smoker, and someone who has at least 3 years or nannying experience.

5. Madison Heights family needs a full time nanny for their 2 year old boy. Parents works from home (dad only 3 days per week). They stay upstairs, but do come down to eat meals etc. 40 hours a week M-F. M-Th 10am-7pm. Friday 2-6pm. Occasional weekend help with advance notice. Family does travel domestically and internationally, so a nanny needs to have a passport and feel comfortable travelling. Namely, the family would like to ‘escape winter’ with the nanny in Costa Rica from January- March.

$12.50/hr guaranteed $500/week. Paid bi-weekly, via check. All expenses paid when travelling. Family will offer 2 weeks paid vacation, sick days, and paid holidays off. Family currently has a nanny, and she will be there until June 20th. Family would ideally like someone who also speaks Spanish, and has knowledge/interest in Montessori. This family is very natural, and believes in holistic wellness. Someone who is self aware, adventurous and grounded is needed.
Nanny duties include but not limited to: dishes, wiping down counters, putting child’s toys away, organizing his room, meal prep, driving to/from activities, and laundry help for the family. Family is very excited to open their home to a new member of their family, and start travelling the world!

Every Child Wakes Up – Sleep Sack Giveaway

Every Child Wakes Up Sleep Sack Giveaway

In the state of Michigan, a baby dies every three days due to unsafe sleep practices. At the 2016 Challenge of Children Conference in Holland, Michigan, I had the pleasure of meeting Sandy Bromley who was teaching a safe sleep workshop called Crying, Sleeping and Playing. Using and Modeling Healthy Habits with Infants.

I was under the impression this workshop was on swaddling and soothing an infant. But it was about something even more important – ensuring each infant wakes up from their naps. Sandy founded a non-profit organization called Haddie’s Calling, in honor of her nine month old daughter Hadley Sue Bromley.

Haddie was a bright eyed baby girl. On June 2, 2015, she fell asleep at daycare and tragically never woke up. She suffocated on a thick, comforter-like blanket that shouldn’t have been anywhere near her. She had been napping for three hours and had passed away and hour before she was checked on. There were many Safe Sleep rules that all licensed day cares are required to follow, and many rules were violated that day.

Is your daycare or nanny following every rule? 

Everyone who cares for children should know the A-B-C’s of Safe Sleep:

A – Alone. Baby should always sleep alone. No pillows, stuffed animals, or blankets.

B – Back. Back is best. Always put a baby to sleep on their backs even when they can roll over.

C – Crib. Baby should always sleep in a crib or Pack-N-Play.

In her honor, Haddie’s Calling created a Sleep Sack to keep infants warm while protecting them from SIDS.

Perfect Nanny Match is raffling off a brand new Sleep Sack. The Sleep Sack is for use for infants six to twelve months. Enter daily now through July 31st, 2016 for your chance to win! Enter below!
