Calm, positive Family Assistant needed for 8 – 12 weeks to assist mom with three children while current nanny is out on maternity leave. Nanny will be energetic and athletic, engaging the children in indoor and outdoor age-appropriate play and activities. Nanny will maintain a peaceful and centered tone, as family does not raise their voice, rather they employ positive encouragement and praise (no time out, no counting). Nanny will provide transportation for all three children to/from park, activities, classes, school, etc., so an excellent driving record is required (vehicle provided for on-the-job use). Primary household duties are to keep the kitchen clean including loading/unloading dishwasher, sweeping, wiping down counters, etc. As possible, nanny will also tidy and maintain common areas, take care of laundry, and complete organizational projects. The ideal candidate will be a proactive self-starter and an excellent communicator. Flexibility with the schedule is required, and family can accommodate flexibility if the nanny has an occasional Saturday commitment. If the position becomes long-term (could be a possibility if nanny does not return from maternity leave), family would like the nanny to accompany them in their travels (approximately 7-10 weeks per year over ~4 domestic trips – the longest being one month long in the summer).
Note: If you feel exceptionally interested and qualified for this position, but can only accommodate a Monday – Friday 11:30a – 7:45p schedule, please let us know.
