FLEXIBLE | KNOWLEDGEABLE | TRAVELER
Are you a career nanny looking to grow with a family as a team player? Are you super flexible, organized, and passionate about child development? Do you have experience traveling and working in dynamic households? If you thought, “That’s me!” we have the position for you!
Family Syllabus: This loving entrepreneurial family of four in Venice is looking for a full-time nanny for their 7-year-old and 8-month-old boys! Most of the care will be for the baby as their older son is in school. They also have a second nanny, an assistant, and a housekeeper, so being a team player is at the top of their nanny wish list! The parents work from inside the home. They travel frequently to New York and San Francisco as well as internationally. They are extremely health-conscious, especially regarding nutrition, and care deeply about combining kindness, love, and early childhood development knowledge to cultivate social, cognitive, and emotional skills. They are loving and welcoming, as well as self-aware, as they know that their ever-changing schedule isn’t for everyone. Please be open to a ROTA schedule in the future.
Ideal Candidate: This family’s ideal nanny is bilingual, kind, loving, intelligent, patient, curious, intuitive, committed to personal self-care, and with extensive experience and developmental knowledge of caring for a child through their development into their toddler years and beyond. Ideally, you have a formal early childhood education degree, deep knowledge and expertise in infant and toddler health and cognitive development, and proficiency with communication, organization, and using technology (iPhone, text, camera app, Waze, etc). How you handle getting upset, a tantrum or a miscommunication is as important as all of the above. Your poise and patience in the hardest moments are what you are most proud of and what your references will say about you. You are a partner, can guide the parents in some moments, and take guidance from them. Overall, you are positive, grateful, optimistic, question before assuming, get way ahead of something that could compound or build-up, are open to learning and new ideas (despite your years of experience), you are perceptive and empathic, and the world’s cup is half-full. You are an early-morning person. Hello Sunshine!
