Sorry..I will not hire someone who wants to bring their own kids along..>ETA
I am hiring a part time nanny for three weeks this summer while my step kids are here. This is the time that we aren't on vacation and they aren't off to camp or enrolled in daycamp.
Three of the nannies I interviewed want to bring their own kids.
Here is my issue. I want a nanny who will take the kids on outings. I have purchased zoo passes, museum passes, amusement park passes, and pool passes. I also want her to take them skating and to the park.
All of these nannies have young children...one has a 3 month old.
Not only that...but none of them have transportation for my kids and theirs.
Okay... A few points
I am providing a car that fits MY kids.
Pay is negotiable.
Also...if their kids are close in age to my kids...and get along with my kids... I would consider them bringing their kids.
I advertised at $300 week...negotiable. Meaning..I am willing to pay more.
Also... I did find someone. She has a daugther a year older than my youngest.
Oh...and as for the people commenting on all the passes and camps and stuff.
1. BM signed her kids up for a camp and offered to add my DD to the "family" rate.
2. We have these passes year round.
3. The second camp they go to is one they all asked for.
4. Most of the summer they are in daycamp. I pay $350/week total for all three....and they provide food. But the weeks I need were full.
I even wrote in my ad what I am looking for...then they get there for an interview and state that they want to bring their kids.
Why do they think it is okay to take their kids on a job?
My kids are 8, 10, and 11.
