The #1 Most Requested Nanny Job Description

familyassistantDo you know the #1 most requested type of nanny we hear about day in and day out? It’s the Family Assistant. What is a Family Assistant you ask?  A Family Assistant is a nanny who is also an assistant to the parent/s or household manager.   She provides another pair of hands to assist busy parents with creating a safe and nurturing environment for their children and the management of the household.  Why is this so popular? The more both parents work, and the busier our lives get, the more help a family needs.  This job is typically with school age children (but can include younger children), and is usually about a 60/40 balance of household duties and childcare.  Theses jobs usually range between 30-40 hours/week.

Summertime in Seattle

Greenlake-Seattle-Q: Can you provide me with a list of fun and educational places that families (and nannies) can take their children to around the Seattle area? Now that the weather is starting to cooperate, I would love to get out and about more.

A: Yes! Field trips aren’t just for school groups with a teacher and 20-30 children. Many places around Seattle offer learning experiences for individual families and/or smaller groups as well. Parent Map has put together a great list of 10 “Do-It-Yourself” field trip locations including The Burke Museum, the Museum of History & Industry, and even Theo Chocolate Factory in Fremont. Descriptions include helpful pricing information as well!

Another great resource I found for families and nannies is the YMCA of Greater Seattle’s blog. It offers 15 fantastic (almost ALL outdoor!) locations around (but not limited to) Seattle. Five of the recommendations were just added to the list last year, ensuring us that the information is current and relevant. Some are old favorites- but places you might not have thought about for a while- and others are tucked away in places with names you may not recognize.

April’s Nanny of the Month is…

FB_IMG_1430406175947….Jasmine Giles! We’ve worked with Jasmine since 2012 placing her in long-term, short-term, and on-call positions. She is an all around sweetheart and we are happy to have her on our team.  Her newest long-term family says she’s already part of the family!

When asked something funny a child recently said to her, Jasmine had this to say:

“We are teaching  the 2.5 year old I nanny to blow on her food to cool it down  if it’s hot. The meal came out and she said “Jazzy make sure you blow first” After I did to cool down her food she said, “Good job Jazzy!” I love how she is learning and told me good job like I always tell her!”

Congratulations Jasmine and Thank you!

Jordan Monasmith…Nanny of the Month for March 2015!


Congratulations to Jordan Monasmith, our Nanny of the Month for March!  Jordan is a permanent nanny who came to us in July of last year.  We were excited about her variety of experience working with children.  Jordan had recently worked as a children’s speech therapist in the Bremerton School District when she came to us and previously as a nanny and preschool teacher.

We found a great family for Jordan who is absolutely over the top about her.  Mom shared that,” Jordan is amazing!  She’s everything we wanted in a nanny”.

Jordan’s favorite quote from her charges is when the little sister (4yrs) was talking about her older brother (7 yrs); she said “Well, I think my brother can do it, he can already read AND crack an egg!”

In her spare time you will find Jordan loving her dog Tank who is a 9 month old Frug, spending time with friends and attempting DIY projects.

Discipline as a Parent-Nanny Team

stepsMisbehavior and boundary testing is part and parcel of raising children, and it can be tough to come up with an approach that fits with the parents’ philosophy and that works for the Nanny.

As we all know, what works for one child may not work for another – different approaches might be needed, as long as they are fair and equal in the case of siblings. It is also a good idea to make a plan together for the strategies that will come into play as the children grow.

The most important part of disciplining a child is consistency; what happens with the nanny during the day must continue with the parents after she leaves, and vice-versa. When a nanny sets a consequence during the day and it isn’t followed through with, the child is more likely to repeat the bad behavior and the nanny feels undermined and disrespected.

If this has become a problem in your home, deal with it sooner rather than later. Organize a time for you and your Nanny to sit down and have a clear and frank discussion about what is and isn’t working to get you both back on the same page. Clear communication is key.

See below for some strategies and ideas that might work for you and your family:

February Nanny of the Month – Shoshana Matteson

IMG956428We first met Shoshana in September last year, though she had been working as a nanny in Seattle for over 10 years. Boy, were we excited when she walked through our door!

Growing up as the second eldest of ten children, working with kids has been part and parcel of Shoshana’s whole life. Part of what makes her so special is the dedication she shows to her charges and the way she treats them as if they were part of her own family.

This has not gone unnoticed by the family we placed Shoshana with in November 2014; they recently sent us an email out of the blue telling us how much they love her!

“When we found out that our twins were due to be delivered very early and would have some complex medical needs (home oxygen and feeding issues) we were very anxious about how we were going to find someone to care for them when I returned to work.  Shoshana and your agency have been an absolute blessing. 

Shoshana is one of the most remarkable people I have ever met.  Not only has she expertly managed our girls’ medical needs, which in my mind is above and beyond the standard nanny job description, she has been incredibly flexible and has stepped in on several scheduling emergencies.  On one occasion she stepped in and was at our house at 5:45am on only 10 hours’ notice.  This was on a day that she is not usually scheduled to work but I was called in for a shift in the ICU and my husband was out of town. 

When I returned from work 14 hours later, the girls were sleeping soundly, the house was immaculate, all of the cooking and laundry was completed and these were not even tasks that were in the job description that we had agreed upon!  She replied simply that she wanted me to be able to have a restful night before going to work the next day.  This is only one small example of how extraordinarily kind and hardworking Shoshana is.  Every week she finds some new way to make our lives easier in addition to caring for and loving our little girls.  I always feel a sense of pride when I am meeting with my friends and discussing work life balance/child care because we truly have found a gem.”

With this commendation, we couldn’t not make Shoshana our February Nanny of the Month! Congratulations!
