This thoughtful, open family and their two children are active and on the go! Their almost 3-year-old son is a busy bee, who is obsessed with his toys and loves to play. The family’s 17-month-old loves her parents and caregiver deeply and can take some time to warm up to new people. Both children will attend a local Montessori school this fall, and they are hopeful to grow their family in 2024!
This family can often be found hiking, practicing yoga, cooking, and taking walks together with the family dog. They travel frequently with their household and with their extended family to beautiful destinations both domestically and internationally and look forward to inviting a travel-ready candidate to join them. Dad has a busy, high-travel career. Mom stays home and loves to work alongside the nanny throughout the day. They are eager to find a candidate who can be a partner to them and their existing Adventure Nanny in caring for their children!
This position is ideal for a candidate who is warm, proactive, travel-ready, and confident in caring for a busy, growing family! A candidate who enjoys caring for active children will be a great fit for this role as the family would love to welcome a candidate who can grow with their family for years to come. Experience working with children from the infant through preschool stages is important for this role, and a candidate who is drawn to/trained in Gentle Parenting or has an interest in developing their understanding will be appreciated. This family values spending time together and will appreciate working with a candidate who can bring their step-in and step-out intuition, strong communication skills, and collaborative, professional expertise to the role.
Responsibilities include creating an environment for the children to grow and thrive, child-related household tasks including but not limited to meal prep, tidying, organizing of children’s areas, and errands, before and after school routines, coordinating activities, traveling with the family throughout the year, and providing additional support when parents are away.
While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate who speaks Spanish!
