A friendly, active, fun-filled family of five is seeking an enthusiastic, creative, intelligent, and playful nanny to join them as they grow to a family of six! Based in Palo Alto, CA, their three children, aged 9, 6, and 2 years old are excited to welcome their sibling to the world in March 2019.
The core of this dynamic and hardworking family’s lifestyle is stimulating the growth and development of their independent children, inspiring their creativity and interests, and ensuring they have every opportunity to explore and learn! They have found their children to be happy, energetic self-starters with imaginative spirits, always ready to invent a fun game and activity. This family is 100% dedicated to their children and enriching their minds! The kids are fluent in Mandarin and Danish, partake in all sorts of after-school activities, and are entirely screen free. Family is priority number one in this home, and they are ready to welcome a helping hand so they can continue focusing on their time with one another.
The ideal candidate for this position will be active, collaborative, exuberant, fun-loving, and able to multi-task and go with the flow. A creative and imaginative mind will come in handy when coming up with fun, enriching activities for the children, both inside and outside of the home. The family hopes to find a candidate who is open-minded and intelligent, excited to leave no rock unturned in ensuring their children’s love to learn. Assisting with morning and afternoon/evening routines and driving the children to and from school and their various activities will be a large part of this role, along with an energetic spirit to engage the children throughout the day. They also hope for a nanny with a collaborative mindset to work as a team alongside their devoted full-time mom, especially as she soon transitions into caring for her newborn. Pitching in with light household duties such as making snacks for the kids, running occasional errands, and pitching in to the overall tidiness of the home (while encouraging the kids to do the same!) will be appreciated.
This is a full-time, live-in or live-out position. The schedule will be 40 to 60 guaranteed hours per week with 9 to 12-hour shifts falling between 7 am and 8 pm. Flexibility to work with schedule changes and travel occasionally with the family throughout the year will be appreciated. The family is offering $25 to $30/hour and are open to discussing benefits such as assistance with healthcare and 401k contributions. A nanny vehicle will be provided while on duty. They hope to find the perfect nanny to join their family as soon as possible!
