Mom describes her daughter as being an inquisitive, curious, and active child who loves to dance, sing, work on puzzles, play soccer, and bake. They have almost 100 puzzles and love working on them together! The child attends Montessori school full-time. They also have a medium-sized dog who is part of the family.
  • Mom works primarily from home and looks forward to working in a collaborative environment alongside a candidate who is forward-thinking, decisive, and able to handle a variety of tasks. This home prioritizes little screen time and a lot of music and dancing! Mom is always trying to engage her daughter’s mind and encourage creativity. Additionally, the child’s Grandma lives nearby and joins the family for dinner frequently.

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for an experienced and organized self-starter with excellent communication skills and a proactive mindset seeking a long-term commitment. Someone with integrity, a passion for childcare and household management, and a love of travel will be valued! The candidate should be confident in collaborating with a hands-on parent and comfortable working independently to make decisions and initiate tasks. Someone who is savvy and able to navigate airports, big cities, and complex situations will be valued. The child is in speech therapy to help with a slight speech delay, so the family will appreciate working with a candidate who has good elocution and leads with love and patience.
  • Responsibilities include creating a loving and consistent environment for the child to grow and thrive.
