Location: Albemarle County, VA
Ages of children: 4.5 and 1.5 years old
Start Date: The position will begin as soon as the family finds the perfect fit!
Schedule:Full-time, guaranteeing 40 hours per week with the general schedule falling on Mondays through Fridays from 7:45am to 3:45pm. The candidate will be asked to work one date night per week (currently Thursdays with option to adjust if the candidate has a schedule conflict) from 6pm to 9pm. The family rarely requires weekend support, and flexibility for travel will be asked and appreciated with advanced notice! Summers are spent in Maine and Wyoming, with international travel once a year.
Compensation and benefits: The family is offering $30-$40/hour in addition to benefits including healthcare assistance, relocation assistance, and PTO.

With 45 acres in Albemarle County, VA, this family describes their property as beautiful and peaceful, complete with a pool, creek, plenty of greenery to explore, and vineyards just a stone’s throw away. These dual-career parents work from home and are comfortable, experienced employers who strive to provide an exceptional work environment for their team. With a background in the restaurant industry they value great food, hospitality, humor, and a welcoming environment.
They are raising their boys to be kind, empathetic people, and believe it takes a village to do so! Their boys love being outside and all it entails, from wildlife to bugs to anything nature-related. The boys thrive with play-based learning activities, so a nanny who’d be excited to head outside and create an enriching experience for the children will be valued.
With an it-takes-a-village mentality in this home, a pitch-in spirit is important! Jumping in with meal prep, grocery shopping, tidying, children’s laundry, and various personal assisting tasks will be important and appreciated. Someone with a love of great food and exploring the great outdoors would be right at home with this family and life on their semi-remote property!
This position is ideal for a candidate who thrives in a team-oriented work environment and enjoys partnering with inclusive, hands-on parents. The whole family is excited to welcome a nanny to the team who can continue to foster the family’s empathetic environment and set their boys up to thrive!
They are hopeful for a nanny who can continue to encourage the boys’ kindness and empathy, and who considers every opportunity to be a learning opportunity. The ideal candidate exudes a warm, empathetic, and intuitive spirit and would be excited to bring their experience and energy to this loving, collaborative family.
