Energetic and proactive Nanny Manager needed for family in far south Austin. Nanny will prepare a snack and take care of any household items prior to the children’s arrival (pick up dry cleaning, pick up craft supplies, grocery shopping, tidying common areas). Nanny will walk to pick up the 2 younger children from school (sometimes allowing the children to play on the school playground for a bit), then will arrive home in time to greet older child at the bus stop. Once the nanny has fed the children snack, supervised homework and instrument practice, nanny will engage the children in indoor and outdoor age-appropriate games, crafts, play and activities. The children love to play, and the ideal nanny will love the outdoors. There also may be some driving to/from activities, so an excellent driving record is required. The nanny will cook dinner (instructions provided; seeking a candidate that enjoys healthy cooking) and feed the children. Nanny will supervise children in preparation for the following day including showering, packing lunches, and laying out clothes.
The family has one dog (German Shephard puppy – outdoor), and the nanny will be responsible for helping the kids feed the dog and provide water, as well as letting dog in/out. Candidate should be organized, establishing and maintaining a schedule that the children follow, but should be fun and engaging. A child development or education/teaching background is a plus. Both parents work outside the home.
