A lovely family in Greenwich, CT is seeking a French-speaking nanny/governess for their sweet 3-year-old daughter. The schedule can be flexible for the right candidate, as the family is open to providing 30-50 hours throughout the week. They would ideally like some weekend hours, but they are happy to discuss this and come up with a schedule that works for everyone. This position can be live-in or live-out, and live-in accommodations will be a private bedroom and bathroom within the home.
Duties for this position include all aspects of childcare, as well as child-related laundry and meal preparation, and keeping her belongings neat and organized. Native-level French is required for this position, as the family would like the nanny to speak in French with the child regularly. The family is seeking a nanny who will foster educational play, both indoors and outdoors, and will gently cultivate proper speech and manners. Experience and interest in Montessori-style childcare and education is preferred. The ideal candidate will be warm and nurturing, patient and conscientious, and knowledgeable about childhood development.
The ability to swim is required for this role, and the family has several pets, so candidates should be comfortable working around animals. Driving would be a bonus for this position but is not required. The family does travel several times per year, and they would love to find a nanny who is willing to accompany them.
