  • Parsons Green, London, UK
Full time Nanny

Job Description

Parson's Green from September:  Live-in OR Daily Nanny for 2 little girls 4 & 1 years.

Our clients are open to Daily or Live-in nannies and the working hours will be:  8.00am - 6/6.30pm Mon-Fri for daily.  Or 7.30am - 7.00pm Mon-Fri for live-in. 

Our lovely, returning clients have two girls (4 & 1 year) and are looking for an organised, positive nanny who can create a happy and playful environment to support both children's development. Our clients are looking for someone affectionate, patient, kind and with a good sense of humour to join them on their journey in helping their daughters explore the world and realise their full potential.

Their eldest daughter (4 years) is bright, fun-loving, energetic and adventurous. She loves the outdoors but also craft and creative play - dressing up is currently high on the daily agenda! She is very good with her baby sister, but understandably enjoys focused-attention when possible. She is in nursery 4 afternoons/week during term time. 


Their youngest daughter (born summer 2019) has Down’s Syndrome, she is a relaxed and easy going baby with a very sweet-natured temperament.  And is already proving to be very sociable - she loves people and being involved. She is doing very well with milestones but needs some extra support, so we require a nanny who has oodles of kindness & patience, with good humour, positivity and who is fun!

Despite living in a city, they are an outdoors family at heart, who love the countryside and require a nanny who equally enjoys being outside and making the most of what nature has to offer.  A nanny with a clean driving licence is preferred but is not an essential requirement.


Our clients are looking for a nanny who has a positive, "can do" attitude and who is passionate about the early years. Straightforward, proactive and respectful communication is massively important to the parents - they want a nanny who will be comfortable and confident sharing their ideas or concerns so everyone can all work together to support the girls in the best possible way. 

Some key ingredients our clients are looking for:  *speak English fluently.  *previous, notable experience of caring for babies & pre-school age children. *Experience of weaning and enjoy cooking healthy meals for the girls. *enjoy creative, active & educational play. *take an active interest in the children's time at nursery and support their development. 

 Candidates must be able to provide: *excellent checkable references. *current, clear DBS. *up-to-date first aid (or be prepared to get one). *OFSTED registered (or willing to undertake the process).

The Nanny accommodation is on the top floor of the house and comprises of a generous double bedroom with TV and a bathroom shared with the children.  The family live in a lovely house in Parsons Green, close to the river and several parks with great playgrounds for the girls to run around and enjoy. There are fantastic shops, cafes and various exercise studios (pilates/yoga/spin etc) on the doorstep and lots to do locally.
