Kind, Travel-Ready Nanny/Family Assistant Needed For Loving Washington, CT Family

 

A warm and heart-filled family in Washington, CT is seeking a kind, spirited, and travel-ready nanny/ family assistant to join them in caring for their 6-year-old daughter!

 

This bustling family of three (and their chocolate lab!) lives life on the go. While they are primarily based in Connecticut, the family travels frequently for work and pleasure to their home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and many other exciting national and international destinations! Described by her parents as bright and engaged, their 6-year-old daughter typically attends school in CT. These creative dual-career parents love immersing their daughter in a variety of life experiences, and often bring her along on their dynamic adventures, whether for a day at work or an exciting travel opportunity. The parents truly value finding a wonderful caregiver for their daughter and are moved to find a nanny/ family assistant with a can-do attitude and collaborative spirit.

This position is ideal for a candidate who is experienced in working with elementary-aged children, is travel-ready, and thrives when wearing multiple hats! The family would love to find a teammate who is passionate about creating an environment that nurtures curiosity, a love for learning, and social-emotional growth for their daughter. A candidate who brings a unique perspective or special background (such as fluency in a second language like Spanish, French, or Italian, a musical background, extensive world travel, or other unique life experience or skill set) will be a valued addition to this family team. A hands-on candidate who helps the household thrive through assisting with healthy meal prep, household inventory management, and errands will be appreciated. A keen eye for safety at all times is key for this family. The family travels frequently, and someone with travel-savvy will thrive on this team for years to come!
