Nanny Job in Mississauga, Ontario
Hello from Erin Mills, Mississauga. We are looking for a reliable, responsible, and caring nanny for our three children on a full time, long term basis starting in September 2021. At that time, the children will be ages 5, 3 and 1.
Our family is seeking a live out, driving nanny. Mom is a physician and Dad is a firefighter, which means that our schedule involves some weekdays and some weekend days. Although it is a full time position (or slightly less than a full time position, if desired by the candidate), the hours are distributed over 3 to 5 days per week. For example, some shifts may be 7am to 7pm, 7am to 2pm, 12pm to 6pm, or occasionally 5pm to 11pm. For the right candidate, we would be willing to negotiate a schedule with an average of 40 hours per week (or an average as low as 35 hours per week if preferred by the candidate) that works for both of us.
The schedule could look approximately like the following (40 hour weekly average shown):
Week 1: Mon 7am–7pm, Tues 7am-2pm, Thurs 7am-7pm, Fri 7am-2pm, Sat 5pm-11pm
Week 2: Wed 7am-7pm, Thur 7am-7pm, Fri 7am-7pm
Week 3: Sun 12pm-6pm, Mon 7am-2pm, Wed 7am-7pm, Thurs 7am-2pm, Sat 12pm-6pm
Week 4: Mon 7am-7pm, Tues 7am-7pm, Wed 7am-7pm, Thurs 12pm-6pm
It is a 4 week repeating schedule, with some flexibility to move days around when Dad is not at work, but assistance with child care is still required.
The ideal candidate would have experience caring for multiple small children and be very safety-oriented. They would be comfortable taking the children on outings in the neighbourhood (eg. walks on nearby paths, visits to the local playground), and able to prepare simple family meals.
Responsibilities would include light housekeeping and some meal preparation. We have a playful, gentle and well-behaved Labrador retriever who is very much a part of the family so some pet care is also involved. For example, he may need to be fed during some shifts and he would need to be let in and out of the backyard as needed during the day. However, it is not expected that he be taken for walks by the nanny.
During the school season our oldest attends kindergarten within walking distance, and our almost 3 year old attends a morning preschool program a short drive away. A valid drivers license would therefore be required. Current CPR and first aid training are also required.
Pay will be negotiated commensurate with the candidate's experience and qualification.
• Proficient in English
• Authorized to work in Canada
• Experience in Canada caring for young children
• Up-to-date infant/paediatric first aid and CPR training
• Ontario drivers licence
• Criminal record check
• References from previous employers in Canada
If this sounds like it could be a good fit for you, we would love to hear from you!
