  • Compensation: The family is offering $35-40/hour based on the 40-45 hour/week schedule, which equates to an annualized base compensation of $72-93k/year range dependent on experience and the agreed-upon schedule. The family may be open to candidates seeking a higher compensation package commensurate with experience.

Household dynamic:

  • This creative, busy, outdoor-loving family is excited to find a self-starting nanny who can take the lead in supporting their elementary-aged kiddo. At 7 years old, he attends school during the week at a local private school. In his free time, he loves arts and crafts, Pokémon, exploring the garden, swimming in the pool, and playing with their sweet dog!
  • The grandparents serve as caregivers for their grandson, and they work with an amazing, down-to-earth household team including a household manager, personal assistant, other childcare providers, and grounds staff. They love to travel and give their grandson as many opportunities as possible- and regularly enjoy taking trips to Disney World and Europe.
