Family in Southwest Austin is seeking a Nanny/Educator for their younger child that is entering kindergarten (minimal support needed for older child). Candidate will follow school curriculum, feed her lunch, and supplement with indoor and outdoor creative learning experiences. Ideally, a candidate would have experience working with children with sensory processing issues and/or experience with self-regulation and tactile processing issues (currently the child attends virtual occupational therapy once/week). Nanny/Educator would direct the child in performing OT exercises (brushing, breathing, etc.), and will be patient, kind, imaginative, and engaging. Candidate will be fun and playful, yet able to redirect in a firm, loving manner. The family has two dogs (a six-year-old, 80lb Lab / Rhodesian Ridgeback and a 9 lb Chihuaha / beagle mix puppy), so the candidate will need to be comfortable with friendly dogs, but will have no pet care responsibilities. Both adults currently work full-time from home (due to COVID), and Mom will return to the office full-time while Dad will work half time each between the office and home office.
NOTE: All candidates must be following all procedures advised by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for Coronavirus exposure prevention. Initial interviews will be conducted virtually using Facetime, Zoom, etc.
