Household dynamic:

  • This family is looking for a wonderful, supportive candidate to join their family team as their nanny of four years makes plans to retire! Their children, ages 5 and 7 years old, are described as being playful and have been skiing ever since they learned how to walk. As the family has another nanny who supports their 7-year-old, this candidate’s role will primarily focus on their 5-year-old. In addition, the family also has a dog and a dog walker!
  • When not at home in beautiful Aspen, this family splits time between other residences in Chicago and in Europe and enjoys traveling throughout the year! The parents enjoy having a collaborative relationship with their nanny while balancing the importance of offering their nannies as much autonomy as possible. The family has an additional nanny who supports their other child and other household staff, so confidence in collaborating with parents and other staff is key!

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for an educationally-minded nanny who is excited to grow with a family long-term! Someone who is caring, organized, passionate about childhood development, and eager to engage in activities and outings and travel extensively with the family throughout the year will be a great fit. A candidate who is excited to enjoy all that Aspen has to offer will thrive alongside this family.

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, travel preparation, and traveling with the family throughout the year.
  • While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate who has a formal background in early childhood education or Montessori! Though their son does not have a formal diagnosis, they would also welcome a candidate with experience supporting children on the Autism and/or ADHD spectrum or similar experience to provide tailored care, alongside other support systems in place.
