Insightful + Experienced Nanny/Family Assistant Needed

 

 

A loving, mindful, and joyful family of four is seeking a creative and hardworking hybrid nanny/family assistant to care for their two growing sons in their home north of Seattle!

 

Based in Edmonds, WA, this holistically-minded family deeply values a community-based, supportive, and healthy-living environment in their home and while raising their boys, aged 4 and 2 years old! They found that their children thrived with the RIE approach and their parents are passionate about offering their children space for creative learning as they grow. Mom and dad are both collaborative and hands-on and have embraced attachment parenting. They travel often for both work and pleasure, frequently to San Francisco, and love spending quality time outdoors! Their 4-year-old is artistically-minded and creative, and his energetic and athletic little brother will be joining him at preschool this coming year.

Honesty and a hardworking mindset are deeply appreciated in this home! This position is perfect for a candidate who enjoys wearing multiple hats and is ready to support two growing children and their family as a whole!
