If you are interested in any of these nanny, childcare, babysitting, transportation, or elder care positions please call 248-227-0016 or email Jobs@PerfectNannyMatch.com.

  1. Bloomfield Hills family with 4 kids ages 2.5, 9, 11 and 14 need an after school nanny starting November 16th. Nanny is only responsible for the 3 oldest children. The hours are M-F 2:20-6:20pm. The end time needs to be flexible as occasionally the parents come home a bit later with notice. Family needs nanny to have a car big enough to fit 3 kids in the car (oldest can sit in front). Family pays $14-15/hr plus mileage. They are willing to offer a guaranteed 20 hours per week. Someone with the flexibility to stay on sick/snow days as well as Jewish holidays or vacations will be preferred but not necessary. Family keeps Kosher and will train on all the precautions. This is a very nice family, kids are well-mannered and easy to work with!

 

  1. Davison family needs a full time night nanny for their one month old little girl. Starts immediately. They also have a 3 year old little boy but the main concern is for the baby. The hours are M-F 10pm-8am. Mom is so exhausted and really just needs to sleep through the night. There are no special needs. They are formula feeding so someone who can help them figure out the best formula, bottles, positions for the baby is necessary. Someone who has been a night nanny before is preferred, but they would consider a nanny who has been a parent herself (basically someone who is used to staying up in the middle of the night!). They will allow cat-naps throughout the night, but want someone who is alert enough to the needs of baby. Salary is DOE and can be discussed. This position can be a live-in or live-out. The night nanny position will probably last for the next few months. They do have an interest in hiring that same person moving forward for care for both kids. They would be interested in using that person for weekends, travelling, vacations, date nights etc. The most immediate need is the night nanny position.

 

  1. Downtown Plymouth family needs an almost full time nanny (32 hours) 9:15a-5:15p M-Th. Dad works upstairs from a home office and is very good about staying out of the way so nanny can do her work. They have a 3 month old baby girl and a 3 year old girl. 3 year old will be in preschool one day a week for now. She is almost potty trained, but someone who is patient, and familiar with potty training is preferred. Family would like help with basic meal prep, kids laundry, tidying up. Family is offering a few days PTO, holidays off, nanny can eat the families food (within reason) and they are looking for someone long-term. Family lives a few blocks away from the downtown area so when the weather warms up they encourage the nanny to take the stroller and the girls for some fun. Family had a nanny for their 3 year old for two years, so they are used to employing someone. Position starts November 30th.

 

  1. West Bloomfield (close to Commerce) family needs a caregiver for their family. They have a 3 year old boy, 5 year old daughter, 11 year old son and an elderly Grandfather living in the home. They mostly need someone to watch out for Grandpa during the day TWTH from 12-8pm. This caregiver also needs to be able to handle the kids if need be. Someone with experience as an elder caregiver first is preferred. They are originally from California, just relocated here to Michigan. They are multi-generational family who are used to hiring nannies. The 11 year old has autism and has his own nanny. The Dad will be home until December and the Mom will be home until February. They will then return back to work. They will handle the drop offs/pick ups for the other kids schooling. This is why the main focus will just be on Grandpa. He handles all of his activities of daily living but will need someone watching him so he doesn’t leave the house. He also is at the starting stages of dementia and has had a traumatic brain injury which sometimes makes him a bit moody. He needs someone to converse with him and be sensitive to the fact that he does not know you are there as HIS caregiver. This is a very long term position, as they have had their nanny for the 11 year old for the last 10 years! Please have prior experience with the elderly and children. Someone who is Spanish speaking is a huge plus to their family, as that is what they have had in the past and love it for their household. Pay is $15+.
