Some of the most common nanny placements we make are:
Full-Time Nanny: A permanent full-time nanny manages your children’s daily routine and becomes a partner for your family. Full-time nannies generally work 40-55 hours per week.
Family Assistant: The role of Family Assistant is designed to support families whose children are either in school part time or all day. Typically, children’s ages are 3-12 years old. This full-time position is a hybrid role consisting of childcare (primary) and household management (secondary). The schedule for this position is usually 11 am – 7 pm or 12 pm – 8 pm. Many of our family assistants have college degrees. Below are a range of duties that fall within the scope of a Family Assistant.
Note: Employee’s ability to complete certain duties is dependant on their schedule. White House Nannies can provide more counsel and insight around how to design a job description that prioritizes your family’s needs and attract the best candidate for your role.
Household Manager: Household Managers typically work for families with older children. These are full-time roles requiring considerable experience, savvy, and comfort with multitasking. The primary objective of this employee is to ensure a household is running smoothly. Because the children tend to be older and more self-sufficient, the childcare component is secondary, and most often not present at all. The schedule for this position is usually 11 am – 7 pm or 12 pm – 8 pm. Many of our Household Managers have college degrees.
Summer Nanny: Our summer nannies are active, bright, and energetic college students and schoolteachers from across the country. They can provide daily care and assist with your children’s daily summer activities and accompany you on vacation. Summer nannies typically begin their positions in late May/early June and conclude in August. We encourage clients to begin the summer nanny search process as early as March.
When the right nanny and family are partnered together, a beautiful and enriching relationship is formed. We know families and nannies who truly become a part of each other’s lives, staying in touch long after employment has ended.
