Household dynamic:

  • This spontaneous, cohesive family loves to create new memories with their children through play, travel, and time with family! The parents describe their 2.5-year-old son as being a loving, adventurous, and high-energy toddler. He keeps busy and is always learning something new or exploring the world around him. At 9 months old, their youngest is an easygoing, observant and calm baby girl. The family also has three friendly dogs at home!
  • The family enjoys cultivating a family-oriented, rousing, and joyful environment in their household, and are excited to find a lead nanny to grow with their family. They love to travel whenever they get the chance, with an upcoming trip to the Caribbean in the works that they would love to have their nanny join in on. The family works with a household manager/co-nanny and housekeeper, so someone who brings a collaborative pitch-in spirit will fit right in.

The family works well with candidates who are patient, enjoy working with an energetic and growing toddler, and bring a calm energy to their day-to-day routines. A candidate who can foster a developmentally-minded environment and is proactive about scheduling various activities for the children will be appreciated.
  • This is a child-focused role, and responsibilities will include creating an environment for the children to grow and thrive, children’s laundry, and light children’s meal preparation.
  • While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate who has a bachelor’s degree!
