An active family of five is seeking a loving, cheerful, flexible nanny with a can-do spirit to care for their three children, aged 8, 10, and almost 12 years old. Based on the Upper East Side, they hope to find an after school nanny who can be a positive role model for their growing children.
As a family in New York City who is always on the move, they work hard to prioritize love, laughter, and kindness in their home. Letting their children know that they are loved for who they are and providing a space for them to be comfortable in their own skin is of utmost importance to these two working parents. They have a very active household, and when the kids aren’t in school they partake in many various activities throughout the week. They love to travel and take several trips throughout the year, including spending summers in their home in Bridgehampton.
The ideal candidate for this position will be patient, kind, efficient, and love to laugh! As active as this family is, upholding the warm, loving, and nurturing environment that they’ve created in their home is essential. Most importantly, the family hopes to find a nanny for their children who can win their children’s trust and create a deep bond with them. Being a positive role model and inspiring a sense of generosity, connection, grit, and intellectual curiosity in their children will be at the heart of this position. Second most to this, a candidate who is flexible and has a can-do, no-job-too-small, positive attitude will be greatly appreciated in this home! The family is prioritizing candidates who are college-educated and can use this experience to help their children study. Though a large part of the day-to-day of this role will be transporting the kids to and from their various activities, a candidate who is comfortable running occasional errands related to their children as well as preparing meals will be a huge asset to this home.
This is a full-time live-out position on the Upper East Side, with the schedule generally falling on Mondays through Fridays from 2 pm to 9 or 10 pm. During the summers the position will be live-in on Mondays through Thursdays while staying at their summer home in Bridgehampton. The family is offering 40 guaranteed hours per week, and offering $25 to $30 per hour take home with the family paying the employee’s taxes. Generous paid time off, sick days, a metro card, and a nanny vehicle will also be provided. They hope to find the perfect someone to join their family by the new year!
