Thanks!

  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’.

If you’re interested in any of the above positions, please make sure you have applied on my agency website first. www.PerfectNannyMatch.com/Jobs/Apply/105

If you’ve already applied on PerfectNannyMatch.com then please just email me with your interest! Lena@PerfectNannyMatch.com

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!
