Household dynamic:

  • This loving family is seeking a compassionate, nurturing, and reliable nanny to care for their happy 3- and 6-year-old daughters. The family lives on a small farm where they grow vegetables and herbs, and they love to explore the natural world around them with curiosity and eagerness. The sisters have a wonderful relationship with each other and love playing together. The oldest is a bright, cheerful, and inquisitive first grader who is with the family two days per week and with her mom the rest of the week. The younger daughter attends a nature preschool two mornings a week and the majority of the care will be for her. She is a joyful, imaginative, independent, and affectionate kiddo. She loves being outside, reading books, playing dress-up, singing and dancing, going to the park, building things, and helping in the kitchen. The family loves letting her take the lead and encouraging her independence.
  • Going for walks, hiking around the farm, playing music, cooking meals together, gathering with friends, and being playful and silly are all part of a normal day for this family! They also love to travel to beautiful and fun places like California, Jackson Hole, New England, and the Bahamas and look forward to finding a nanny who can join them. The parents are Buddhist and have strong values around compassion, kindness, and healthy communication. They believe in creating a positive environment for their nanny and treating them with respect and care.
  • The family is all vaccinated and are COVID-cautious as a way to protect the immunocompromised people in their lives. They appreciate mask-wearing while indoors in public places, regular testing, and general precautions and hope to find a nanny who shares this approach.

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for a nanny who is gentle, trustworthy, responsible, and silly, and who can also set clear boundaries with their two young girls! A candidate who is eager and excited about fostering an honest and communicative relationship with the parents is key, as they hope to keep an open line of communication through regular check-ins. This family is looking for someone who can be proactive, and engaged with their children.
  • A candidate who brings a developmentally-minded approach to the day and proactively researches and implements activities and educational play while supporting the children’s curiosity and exploration will thrive alongside the family. Responsibilities will mostly focus on child-related tasks, but also are seeking someone who is open to helping to keep their home organized and running smoothly.
  • The family requires that candidates have or are able to obtain a reliable personal vehicle for professional use and they will be open to providing an auto insurance stipend.
  • Bonus qualifications: While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate who brings experience with Montessori, Waldorf, RIE, and/or an early childhood education background and who loves to continue learning and growing in their profession. They would also like to find a candidate who is excited to travel with them throughout the year!
