We are a group of five families in West Medford looking for a nanny to care for our kindergartners after school in the 2021-2022 school year. Our children are currently in pre-K together at a local daycare, so they are already friends and playmates! We would like them to be together after school next year, as all of us parents work full-time. All five children will be attending the Brooks Elementary School in the fall, and they will take the school bus together every afternoon to the designated after school house.
We are seeking a responsible, fun-loving and energetic person who loves kids and is willing to work out of each family’s home at some point during the school year.
The typical hours will be 2:45 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 1:45 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, for every day that school is open per the Medford public schools calendar (found here: School Year Calendar Template (mps02155.org) ).
(Note that most of the families have pets in the home, and although pet care is not part of the job duties, the successful candidate should be tolerant of cats and dogs.)
The work location will rotate during the year, but each family will take just one turn hosting for approximately seven consecutive weeks before rotating. Several houses have a bus stop in common, so there will only be three bus stops during the year.
The nanny’s duties will be:
- Greeting the children at the bus stop after school and safely walking them a short distance in a group to the after school house.
- Supervising free play and one or two lightly structured activities each afternoon, which may include a walk to the library, a short walk in the Fells, or a walk to the playground
- Activities planning, i.e., arts, crafts, or other enrichment activities (supplies provided by the families)
- Giving the children their after school snack (provided by the families)
- Light clean up and tidying with assistance from the children before parent pick up
- Generally promoting a fun, safe and positive environment for the children to relax in after a grueling day of kindergarten:)
The expected rate of pay will be $36 per hour, paid through the Home Pay service via care.com.
Pay and other terms of employment will be reflected in a written contract between the families and the successful candidate.
The successful candidate needs to be CPR certified, pass a CORI check, and submit two or more references with regard to previous experience caring for children.
Last, there will be a few hours of paid orientation prior to the start date so the successful candidate can tour the houses, meet the children and work out any logistics.
We look forward to meeting you!
