Two families in Buffalo Grove are seeking an enthusiastic, engaging Nanny/Educator for their two sweet and energetic kindergartners. Candidate will facilitate and support online learning (half day), prepare meals and snacks, and enrich the children’s learning through educational activities (games, reading, etc.), creative and imaginative projects (arts/crafts, theater, music), as well as indoor/outdoor exercise and free play (very minimal screen time aside from learning). Candidate must have a background in education or a related field, a pre-school background, and/or references must demonstrate past work helping children learn and complete school work. Nanny/Educator will be patient, positive, creative, and fun, while being able to maintain order, structure and consistency.
There are two shy, but friendly indoor dogs in the home (small Basenji-Jack Russell mix, larger Black Lab mix) that the candidate will let in/out. Both parents are currently working from home due to COVID. The position will be through December, but could extend through the Spring depending on the virus situation.
NOTE: All candidates must be strictly following all procedures advised by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for Coronavirus exposure prevention including social distancing, masks, hand washing, etc.. This is particularly important as one of the parents is immunocompromised. This includes all members of your household, as there can be extremely limited changes of exposure. Initial interviews will be conducted virtually using Facetime, Zoom, etc.
