Full Time Nanny in Dallas (75205) Mockingbird/Hillcrest
We are fun-on-the-run! That’s right—we are loads of fun and we travel the world…and we want you to come with us.
And we want you to come and stay for the long-term, as in, we want a Full-Time Career Nanny to join our already very cool nanny team. We would also love for this person to have had previous teaching experience. We’ve got three dynamic kids—each with their own distinct personalities and fun-loving favorite activities. Our oldest is a 7-year-old daughter who is a big sis to her younger brothers, ages 5- and 3 years old. Trust us, there is always lots of activity going on at our house!
We expect our nanny team to work mostly independently, without too much parental guidance, and in a kind, caring, and patient manner with the kids. We do our best to steer clear of too much screen time throughout the day, so it’s important you come ready to engage with the kids through lots of fun and imaginative play both indoors and outdoors. We work hard to create a learning environment as much as possible through adventures and exploring, crafts, and storytime. Every day is a new opportunity to discover something new for our crew.
Our 5-year-old has sensory processing limitations, so any special training would be a huge bonus. Our ideal candidate would have a teaching certificate or extensive early education/childcare experience (a minimum of 10 years of combined nanny/teaching experience). If you are familiar with working with kids with speech apraxia, you’re golden to us! We have professionals assisting us with his care who will educate you regarding the best practices to care for his special needs. Add to this making sure the other two kids don’t feel neglected or overlooked and you’re a certified champion juggler!
As this position is for the second shift of the day, most of your responsibilities would focus on late afternoon/evening care, feeding, and engagement. This includes getting the kids to their afternoon lessons, snack and meal prep, homework help, and orchestrating the whole bath time/bedtime routine. As time allows, keeping the kids’ rooms and play areas picked up is always appreciated.
So about the traveling gig—we travel a lot—sometimes too far away, new and exciting places, sometimes to one of our other homes. That said, we highly prefer a candidate who has traveled with families in the past and is familiar with all that goes into making a trip as fun and stress-free as possible. Our trips vary in length, but when traveling to another home, we can be gone for as much as eight weeks at a time. This is where our need for complete flexibility (including weekends) becomes most evident. When we go, we need you to come with us almost always. When we’re at home in Dallas, we also ask for weekend availability.
It’s a lot to ask—we get that. We’re a high-profile Dallas family who values our privacy so we ask that you sign an NDA as well as provide impeccable references. In return, we offer loyalty, adventure, excellent pay, and a warm and welcoming family atmosphere. There’s no telling where our travels will take us or our days will lead us, but this will be a nanny opportunity like few you will ever encounter—that we can promise!
