French-Speaking, Creative Nanny Needed For Dynamic Manhattan Family


A bustling, dynamic family based in SoHo, New York City is seeking a creative, experienced, and French-fluent nanny to join their household team and care for their 5 and 2.5-year-old children!


These hardworking, dual-career parents have struck a lovely balance between professional and laid-back in their home, and deeply value their time spent together as a family. Their 2.5-year-old is active and social while sometimes shy, while their 5-year-old attends school full-time and is excitedly exploring his interests! The family’s schedules tend to vary, and the children’s school schedules may shift depending on COVID-19. Their fully staffed home is tight-knit, professional, and friendly. They travel often for a week or two at a time, but sometimes for up to a month, so flexibility to be on-the-go is required. They look forward to finding a nanny who enjoys working as part of their team and can provide an enriching and safe French-immersive environment for their children to grow and thrive!


This position is ideal for a candidate with a creative mindset, who is passionate about planning fun-filled, educationally-minded activities and adventures, and can be proactive in doing so. This will be a very child-focused position, though pitching in with various child-related tasks such as the children’s laundry, tidying, and occasional meal prep and errands, will be valued. The family speaks French and Turkish in their home, thus fluency in French is required, and an excitement to immerse the children in the language. A collaborative, team mindset will be important when working alongside this hardworking, kind family and staff. Flexibility is key in schedule and personality, and the team works together to ensure each staff member is supported and energized to fulfill their role with joy!


The family is also seeking a Friday through Sunday nanny (guaranteeing 36hrs/week) where French fluency is not required. If interested, check out the job description here: Activity-Oriented Weekend Nanny Needed For Family In SoHo, NYC
