This spontaneous, movement-loving, and adventure-seeking family is excited to find a nanny to join their team! Their 18-month-old toddler is described as being curious, intelligent, sensitive, strong, and cheeky. He enjoys people who keep him engaged through activities, music, stroller walks, and playing outside!
Mom and Dad are highly involved in their child’s day-to-day life. Their professional workloads ebb and flow, so they have the opportunity to spend a lot of time together as a family. They utilize a Montessori approach and are excited to work with someone who is committed to creating a safe and independent environment for their child to grow confidently. On the road, their community grows exponentially. The family of three will be surrounded by a village of co-workers who have become close friends after years of traveling together for months at a time. They are excited to find a nanny who can be a vibrant, professional, flexible extension of their family!
This position is ideal for a candidate with an all-hands-on-deck attitude who is naturally organized and has a high energy, playful outlook with calm, steady reactions in a fast-paced environment. Both parents will be working in supporting roles while on tour, and are hopeful to work with a candidate who brings a strong sense of professionalism to the role and understands that they are an extension of the parents in the tour environment. Someone who is open-minded, vibrant, communicative, and passionate about travel, good-hearted people, and exploring quality food and new possibilities would be a perfect match for the family!
Responsibilities include creating a consistent, comfortable play environment for the child to grow and thrive. Researching age-appropriate activities in each destination, light children’s meal preparation, tidying up common areas, helping the family stay organized, and packing/unpacking/transporting the child’s luggage. The role will be split between focusing on the child and assisting the family’s smooth transition from place to place. A single travel day will likely involve cars, a tour bus, and plane transport. A candidate should be comfortable and confident following directions and being on the move in unknown places.
While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with someone who has past tour nanny and/or other relevant experience!
