Family Assistants typically work full-time, between 40 and 50 hours per week, with schedules tailored to each family's unique needs.

Some additional tasks our clients have asked their Family Assistants to handle include booking travel, researching summer camps, coordinating the mailing of holiday cards, decorating for holidays, providing pet care, booking appointments, organizing household repairs, coordinating with vendors, and ensuring the family vehicles are cleaned and serviced. These versatile helpers adapt to your family's unique needs, ensuring everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

Why work with us

What we expect from Family Assistants

The Nanny Tribe personally speaks with each reference provided because we believe in hearing the excitement and authenticity in their voice. Nothing is more important to us than ensuring safety and verifying that each candidate has a history of impeccable service.


Our thorough background analysis provides peace of mind by ensuring that each candidate meets our high standards for a trustworthy background and is truly who they say they are, ensuring the highest level of safety and reliability for your family.


We don’t recruit individuals just looking for a job; we seek those with a true passion for caregiving. A genuine caregiver is excited to go to work each day and sees it as an opportunity to "play." We look for dedicated, enthusiastic individuals who bring joy and commitment to their position.
