  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. If nanny prefers not to work on Fridays, then it could just be a 40 hour a week position. 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) for 2 (Th/Fr) out of the 5 days. 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.

Nanny must be willing to have a long term position. They’ve had nannies previously (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. Novi family is searching for a part time German speaking nanny for their 3 children. Girls are 4 and 2 years old, and newborn boy. Family will guarantee 20 hours per week no matter what. The hours are flexible (Mom stays home with baby) but ideally they would like MWF 8am-2pm and T/Th from 8am-12pm. This family speaks German and English. They MUST HAVE a native German speaking nanny, no exceptions at this time. Someone who took German in high school unfortunately does not count. Competitive hourly rate. Position starts June 26th, but they can be flexible for the right person to start later if need be.

The little girls are adorable, they live in a nice house, and Mom is super easy to get along with. Even though she technically is in the home, she says she rarely sees their current nanny. She stays completely out of the way. Their current nanny is leaving the family after being there for almost three years. Mom will be hanging out with the newborn little boy most of the time (she’s breastfeeding). After a few months however, Mom will want to be able to trust the nanny enough to leave all 3 kids home for short periods of time. They have a huge playroom in their basement. She loves it when her current nanny cleans up after the girls (or encourages them to clean up) at the end of her shift.

They hope to find a nanny who is creative, likes games, and can come up with fun activities for the girls to keep their minds sharp. 2 year old is still in diapers, so someone that can help with potty training would be nice. She wants their new nanny to be part of the family. She enjoys having open communication. She allows the nanny to be in charge when the nanny is working with the kids. Someone who can help the 4 year old with her homework (from Kumon) that would be nice. 4 year old is involved in swim and ballet. 2 year old is involved with gymnastics.

General tidying up of the house will be requested, but no deep cleaning. They have a cleaning service twice a month. Grandma is there a lot (lives in Nashville, but visits), but she doesn’t come downstairs that often when the nanny is there. She has a mother in laws suite upstairs and when she knows the nanny is there, she stays out of the way. The nanny is free and welcome to eat the families food. This a great family to join, thanks for reading!

3.  Plymouth family needs full time professional nanny for their b/g twins, who are 6 months old. Start date is anytime between June 27th and July 4th. Family is currently in Atlanta, and are moving to the area soon, therefore all initial interviews with them must be conducted via Skype. Once the family is in town, they will be available to have the candidates to the house to meet the kids/parents in person.

They are looking for 4 days a week, approximately 7am-4pm. Family will guarantee 35 hours per week no matter what. If they use you over the 35 hours, they will pay for those extra hours. They would like to pay legally, with taxes taken out. Pay is around $18/hr, and can be negotiable based on experience and education level. They will offer 2 weeks paid vacation and 6 paid holidays.

Both parents are doctors, Dad is still in training. He is on call some nights, where he might have to step away to take a call. This happens 1-2 times per month, and they need a nanny who can stay later on those nights. Mom will occasionally have to do 24 hours shifts, which means she would come home around 9am, nurse the babies, take a nap for a few hours, then relieve the nanny. Since these will be new positions for both of them, it’s really hard for them to say what the schedule will be. We are hoping to find someone a little flexible, who is willing to get their schedule 2-3 week in advance. Mom said she could try to have the days be consistent each week, but cannot guarantee that.

Family is Catholic/Christian, loving, and very new to the parenting world. They would prefer someone with a college degree, but would take several years of nanny experience in place of a degree. They are looking for a career oriented, professional, safe nanny for their babies. This position will last at least 1 year, and hopefully more depending on the Dad’s position. This family would like someone to be extremely engaging with their children, lots of reading, talking, and playing.

Questions for Children After School

Back To School

Did your kids start school this week in Wayne, Oakland, or Macomb county? When they came home on their first day, I bet you asked the dreaded question: “How was your day?”. Bor-ing!

As a nanny myself, I know I’ve asked that same, mundane question to my nanny kids. They always reply the same way, and I always end up feeling lost as to how to communicate with them about their school day.

I found this cute article that shows you 30 questions to ask your child about their day at school. Hope it helps spur some interesting conversations for you and your family!

http://parent.co/30-questions-to-ask-your-kid-instead-of-how-was-your-day/
