    • Based on the majestic island of Kauai, this family recently relocated from San Francisco and have been soaking up island living and enjoying all that their rural area has to offer. They are passionate about instilling values of kindness and respect in their children and are excitedly encouraging them to go after their dreams!
      Their children are affectionate, creative, smart and are two peas in a pod, and both attend school for 6 hours each day. The family is passionate about limiting screen time, getting the children outside and exploring the beaches after school, and fostering a healthy lifestyle.
    • The family is excited to add opportunities for adventure into their life wherever possible including traveling internationally and domestically and introducing their children to new experiences; including spending extended time skiing and adventuring at their home in Geneva!

    • This position is ideal for a nurturing, attentive, and down-to-earth nanny who is passionate about tailoring an enriching environment for growing, bright children and supporting a family as a whole!
    • A nanny/family assistant who can find age-appropriate, educationally-minded activities after school that foster the children’s interests and get them outside and active will be deeply valued in this home. While the children are in school, the day will include assisting with household tasks to ensure the home is running smoothly, such as closet organization, inventory management, running errands, prepping gluten-free meals, light tidying, prepping for evening routines and the next morning, and more!
    • The children get along well with someone who is engaging and can meet them at their level, and can provide a tranquil atmosphere to a bustling schedule.
