Household dynamic:

  • This creative, close-knit family is excited to welcome a household manager/nanny to their family’s team to help support their busy, active lifestyle. The family enjoys gardening, caring for their chickens and goats, engaging in arts and crafts, and spending as much time as possible with their two children. Their 5-year-old is described as being a fun-loving outdoor explorer who adores spending a lot of unstructured time outside. Their 7-year-old thrives with more structure, enjoys various activities such as gymnastics and musical instruments, and loves being social and hanging out with friends. The entire family shares a love of creative pursuits, farm animals, and being on the water as much as possible. They also have sweet hypoallergenic Cavapoo! Although no animal care will be required, candidates should feel comfortable around animals.
  • These dual-career parents are in and out of the house regularly. In addition to their full-time estate manager, they also employ a part-time housekeeper. They’re eager to work with someone who is enthusiastic about tag-teaming and partnering with the family’s estate manager to ensure the household runs smoothly. Someone who has excellent communication skills and knows when to step in and when to step back to allow the family to have quality time together will be the perfect fit for this position.

Ideal candidate: 

  • This position is ideal for someone who is equal parts an organized household manager and a nurturing and engaging nanny. You’ll be stepping into a world where your versatility will shine by seamlessly blending childcare with household management, implementing systems, and managing projects within the household. Whether engaging children in a game of chess, collaborating with the family’s estate manager in executing the household’s daily operations, or preparing a simple yet nutritious meal, this role demands a compassionate touch and an organized mind.
  • Responsibilities include creating an environment for the children to grow and thrive, coordinating after-school activities and play dates, running errands, occasional meal planning and preparation, grocery shopping, coordinating vendors, occasionally traveling throughout the year, and managing the family calendar.
  • While not a requirement for the role, the family would love to work with a candidate with a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Qualifications:

  • 3 years of professional childcare experience
  • Family Assistant/Household Management Experience
  • Knowledge and experience with elementary-aged children
  • Valid drivers license
  • Valid passport (or ability to obtain one once hired)
  • Ability to swim and comfortability caring for children in and near water
  • Dog/Pet friendly! Willing to support light pet care
