Family Syllabus: A fantastic family in Sherman Oaks is looking for an amazing total team player nanny to help care for their three children; two boys ages 6.5 and 5, and a 3-year-old daughter. All the kids play together and independently, building with legos and engaging in imaginary play. The oldest is a joke-telling eccentric inventor, the middle is a bookworm who loves to go to the library, and the youngest is game for anything, loving dress-up just as much as playing outside. The two boys are highly gifted with learning differences and the oldest has ADHD. Their daughter is independent, endearing, kind and a joy to care for. The dad is currently working from home and travels two days per week and the mom is an MD who works part-time in the morning. Mom is very hands-on and the nanny is typically caring for one or two children at a time, but the nanny must be qualified to care for three children on a rare occurrence. The nanny is considered part of the family.
Ideal Candidate: Their ideal candidate is a compassionate, thoughtful, inspiring nanny who can be a strong support system as their children learn and grow. The parents prefer a nanny who has knowledge and skills with special needs and/or child development. Please be kind, yet firm and know how to interact with and love children through challenging moments. A college degree is not required for this role. Please also have a reliable vehicle and a clean driving record.
Job Synopsis: The nanny will be responsible for transporting children from home to activities, and preparing snacks and meals for the children. Several of the activities involve Occupational Therapy, Educational Therapy, Animal Therapy, and Social Skills Group which allows for breaks.
