Enthusiastic, Organized Nanny Needed for Warm Connecticut Family

 

**Details Updated 5/6/21** A kind, laid-back family based in southern CT is seeking an upbeat, enthusiastic, and organized nanny to join their caregiving team!

 

This busy, loving family (and their two sweet dogs!) is conscientious and deeply values the members of their household team and value their happiness. Their current nanny has been with the family for 6 years now! Their four children are an infant, toddler, and two elementary-aged children, so their home is bustling and full of love, fun, and many moving pieces. They are sweet children who love all sorts of activities from arts and crafts to outdoor games, and their parents are raising them to value kindness and honesty. Their two oldest children attend school during the week and have separate drop offs which are tag-teamed between nannies and parents. They are interested in adding two full-time nannies to their team to work overlapping schedules to ensure their children have loving, dedicated care throughout the week and on upcoming trips!

 

This position is ideal for a candidate who thrives in a home with many moving pieces and is at their best when they’re able to bring support and structure to a bustling environment, setting children up to thrive. This family and their team have an it-takes-a-village mentality to ensure collaboration in day-to-day care by partnering with parents and other care providers to divide and conquer the day. Comfortability supporting multiple children at one time will be key, though the candidate will not often be full-charge of all four kiddos at one time. While the two oldest are in school the role will focus on their two youngest children alongside the family’s NCS who will be staying to provide support until their infant is at least 1-year-old. A candidate who has an eye for organization and tidiness, is happy to help out with general household tasks like kids’ laundry, healthy meal prep for the kids, taking on organizational projects, and other tasks that make this bustling home run smoothly will be greatly appreciated. The family travels on small trips throughout the year and spends many of their winter weekends going back and forth to their home in south Florida; they hope for a nanny who would be excited to travel with them!
