Imaginative, Intrepid Nanny Needed For Outdoorsy + Adventurous Denver Family


An outgoing family based near Denver, CO is seeking an adventurous, proactive, and imaginative nanny to care for their 15-month-old boy!


  • Location: Denver (Lowry), CO
  • Ages of children: 15 months old
  • Start date/Contract dates: As soon as possible!
  • Schedule: Full-time, guaranteeing 40 hours per week. The general schedule will fall on Mondays through Fridays from 9am-5pm or 8:30am-4:30pm. Flexibility for evenings, weekends, and travel will be asked in advance and appreciated! Candidate may be asked to house and dog-sit should the family travel without the nanny.
  • Compensation and benefits: The family is offering $30-35/hr DOE. Benefits include a healthcare stipend and concierge medicine, relocation assistance, a travel stipend, PTO, and a vehicle for use while on duty resulting in a full compensation package in the $60-75+k/year range for the perfect applicant.
  • Live-in/Live-out: Live-out


  • Daily environment: 
    • Based in the south suburbs of Denver, this laid-back and sociable family loves to spend time with extended family and strives to create a warm, inclusive environment in their home.
    • The family is outdoorsy, travel-ready, and always ready for an adventure, from skiing at their ranch property in Steamboat to basking in the sun of Palm Springs, or embarking on a boat trip in Florida!
    • Their 15-month-old is very active and loves to laugh. These first-time parents have been loving the adventure of parenthood, and hope to work with a nanny who can work collaboratively alongside them as they balance family time with their full-time careers and prepare to grow their family. Someone who is comfortable both providing guidance and letting the parents take the lead will be a perfect addition to the team!


  • Ideal candidate: 
    • This position is ideal for a candidate who thrives in an inclusive work environment where they are an extension of the family, and is passionate about coming up with fun, creative ideas for developmentally-minded activities! Familiarity with the early toddler stages is key, along with a proactive and growth-minded approach to daily routines. The family plans to grow in the near future, and would welcome a candidate with infant experience.
    • The family hopes to work with a nanny who is excited and ready for adventure, ready to hop on a boat for a week-long trip or go skiing in the Colorado mountains! The family also has two sweet and big dogs, so when they travel separately as a family, they hope for a dog-lover who can provide light pet care and house sitting. Collaboration is very important with these loving, hands-on parents and a candidate who can seamlessly provide full-charge care, as well as partner with mom and dad, will be key.
    • A candidate with an all-hands-on-deck spirit who can be an extra set of hands around the home, and has aspirations to evolve their role into household management/family assisting as the family grows and their needs change, will be valued in this home for years to come!


  • Must haves: 
    • At least 3 years of professional, full-time childcare experience
    • Valid driver’s license and passport
    • Recent, applicable experience with infants and young, active toddlers
    • Proactive approach to implementing developmentally-minded activities
    • Collaborative and team-oriented, comfortable working in tandem with hands-on parents
    • Excitement and flexibility to travel with the family frequently throughout the year as it is safe to do so
    • Adventurous spirit, a love for the outdoors (comfortable both at the beach and in the snow)
    • Confident swimmer and comfortable caring for children in/around water
    • Animal friendly!
    • Prior travel experience, a Bachelor’s degree, and/or knowledge of a second language are all big pluses, though not required
    • Fully vaccinated and boosted (when eligible) against COVID-19 prior to start date in accordance with applicable laws.
