- Schedule: Full-time rotational schedule of 2 weeks on/ 2 weeks off. The typical working hours will fall between 7am – 9pm, with 24/7 on-call availability needed, especially during travel with the family or when parents are traveling without the children. The candidate will collaborate with a co-nanny to plan for extended rotation to offer coverage when the family travels.

If live-in, the family is open to offering their on-site cottage for the ideal applicant to stay in while on rotation.

- This active, loving family is looking for a full-time nanny to complete their rotational team by joining them and their Adventure Nanny in caring for their energetic 9, 6, and 3-year-old children and sweet dog! Their young kids love to play and explore outside no matter the weather and live nearby to parks, playgrounds, museums, libraries, and other places for fun outings. In the warmer months, they enjoy swimming, riding bikes, tennis, sailing, and growing a vegetable garden. In the winter, they love to get outside and enjoy sledding, skiing, playing in the snow, and skating. Some of the children’s other favorite activities include playing with legos, reading, building, baking, arts and crafts, and woodworking projects to name a few! All three children will be attending school this spring, and the family is excited to have additional household and childcare support as they send all three children off to school!
- This family aims to practice positive parenting and values silliness, warmth, and instilling emotional regulation skills, with the belief that regular routines and clear expectations are important for their children. With their children’s wide range of ages, the family often finds that taking a divide-and-conquer approach is key to nurturing their children’s development and allows both parents to get valuable 1:1 time with each child. A candidate who is confident in partnering with parents will be key, as one of the parents is regularly in and out of the home during the day. Both parents hope to work with a team of nannies who can provide outstanding care for their children for years to come and also help keep their household running smoothly to allow their family more quality time together!
- During a typical week, the kids will be in school between the hours of 9am – 3pm. A candidate will offer support for the kids during afternoons and evenings, using time before school pick-up for household and child-related tasks such as organizing, activity prep, meal prep, and basic errands. The candidate will work in collaboration with the family’s existing nanny and household manager to ensure a smooth hand-off. During school breaks and summers, the family loves to take trips, so a candidate who loves to travel and can provide occasional overnight care will be appreciated!
- This position is ideal for someone who is interested in child development and excited to work with this family to foster emotional development and teach empathy and respect to their children! The family is excited to work with a candidate that brings a positive attitude, and a warm, nurturing, and friendly demeanor to their home! An intuitive and proactive candidate who is outdoor-loving in all seasons, team-minded, flexible for occasional schedule changes and travel, has a step-in/step-out mentality, and is willing to jump in to help as needed will be a valuable addition to this household.
- Responsibilities include providing a stimulating environment for the children to grow and thrive, child-related housekeeping, light pet care and family assisting duties, and pitching in where needed! A candidate who brings an organizational skill set, is detail-oriented and a self-starter, and can anticipate the needs of a busy household will be appreciated.
- The parents look forward to creating an engaging caregiving team that can plan ahead and take activities to the next level and will value working with candidates who notice and nurture their children’s interests through activity and play.
- One of the children has ADHD and benefits from a caregiver who brings a loving, patient, collaborative energy to each day and an understanding of learning differences. They have systems in place to support their child as well as resources to help their nannies build their tool kit, so while it is not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate who has experience supporting children with ADD/ADHD.
- Valid driver’s license and passport
