Family Syllabus: A creative and fun family of four, located in Mar Vista, is looking for their all-star nanny! This loving family has two children ages 4 and 1 years old. These children are sweet, joyful, and active! Their one-year-old is very active, communicative, and very happy and their 4 year old is curious, high energy, expressive, and sensitive! Both children love to be engaged, listen to music, and are overall great children! Mom works from home, but at times can be working outside of the home. Dad works from home occasionally. Their older child attends school from 8:30 am – 3 pm, but the school does take frequent days off. The family also has a friendly cat.
Ideal Candidate: Their ideal candidate has a positive attitude, is highly confident in their childcare abilities, has a background in child development, and is a great problem solver. Someone who is mellow, even-keeled, and easy-going will fit right in with this family. Nannies that have experience working with multiple children at one time would be required for this family. Someone who is progressive, inclusive, aware, and compassionate will be a great match for this family! They would love a college-educated nanny that is familiar with RIE and “respectful parenting”, as this approach to learning would be aligned with the family’s current philosophies.

The family has a beautiful and magical backyard area for you and the children to explore and have fun outdoor adventures!
