Caring, Toddler-Savvy Nanny Needed for Active Family of Four in Portland


An active, friendly family of four in Portland, OR is seeking a caring, knowledgeable, and fun-loving nanny to care for their 3.5-year-old and 2-year-old children!


This family is excitedly moving to Portland from the UK and looks forward to settling in and exploring the city with their 2 toddlers and 2 golden retrievers. Both parents often work from home and enjoy prioritizing time with their children. The children will be attending school for several hours Mondays through Thursdays depending on COVID-19. The family looks forward to finding a collaborative, patient nanny to join their team in raising kind, intelligent, and respectful children.


This position is ideal for a candidate who has extensive experience with this age range and a true passion for toddlerhood and developmental milestones! A bit of patience and a creative approach to implementing developmentally-minded and fun activities will be valued. A candidate with a team spirit and a step in and step out intuition will be appreciated when working alongside these loving, hands-on parents. A candidate who enjoys wearing multiple hats and providing personal assisting tasks while the children are in school will thrive in this role. The family loves to travel when safe to do so and look forward to bringing their nanny along on their adventures!


This is a full-time, live-in or live-out position with 50 hours guaranteed weekly, falling on Mondays through Fridays between 6am – 8pm (schedule will be agreed upon in advance). Live-in accommodations include a private bedroom and bath with a separate kitchen area. Flexibility to travel with the family will be valued! The family is offering $25-$30/hour and are happy to discuss additional benefits such as relocation assistance, healthcare assistance, and PTO. The position will begin as soon as the family finds the perfect fit!


This position is open to all Adventure Nannies candidates who are legally able to work in the US, possess a valid driver’s license and passport, and have direct, professional experience working with this age range.
