This UES family deeply values work life balance in their home and have a long history of longevity in their team! The family never underestimates the power of listening and patience when it comes to both adults and children in their home. They are a screen-free home and passionate about taking time to explain the “why” to their daughter and be engaged listeners as she grows; they hope to find a nanny who can align with these values as well. She is very bright, curious, and in-tune with her emotions, and some of her favorite activities include arts-and-carts, dance parties, and singalongs! The family travels when they can and it is safe to do so, and also spend several months of their summers in the Hamptons. They are excited to welcome a creative, mindful nanny who can join them in setting up their child to grow and thrive!
This position is ideal for a candidate who is activity-oriented and can bring a fun-loving, joyful spirit to the day with a balance of structure and lovingly-set boundaries. The family would love to work with a candidate who can bring an educational bend to the day to nurture their daughter’s energetic spirit and love for learning; a background and/or higher education in a child development field is a big plus! Once their daughter begins school in the fall, the role will shift to focus on family assisting tasks while she is in school. This will include tasks such as occasional errands, grocery shopping, prepping healthy, veggie-based meals for their daughter, and in general ensuring the home is running smoothly. Mom loves to cook, so assistance with light meal prep such as chopping veggies for family dinners will also be appreciated. The family hopes to work with a flexible candidate who would enjoy spending the summer in the Hamptons and providing sole/overnight care while mom and dad travel alone on occasion. Other travel with the family can be expected as well! A nanny who can bring their passion for childhood growth, fun-filled activities, patience and mindfulness to the role will thrive in this home for years to come.
