SAN DIEGO, CA (LOCAL CANDIDATES ONLY)-Laid back, down-to-earth, fun-loving family seeks a warm, loving and reliable FULL-TIME NANNY for their 1- and 4-year-old girls. Hours are from 8am-5/5:30pm Monday-Friday. There are two older children in the home who are self-sufficient. They are homeschooled with private tutors and are not the nanny’s responsibility. They are an American family who has spent the last few years living in France and are excited to move back to the states! They are looking for someone who can commit to their family for at least 1 year.
Their 4-year-old is thoughtful, intelligent and self-directed. She loves to read, dance, laugh and tell silly jokes! She is fluent in English and French (prefers French). A plus if you are bilingual! Their youngest is an incredibly easy baby. She is sweet, quiet and cuddly. Their baby is potty-trained; thus the nanny will need to continue to work with her on mastering those skills. The girls love to fill their day with music, spending time outside/going on walks, crafts, dance and reading. They are looking for someone animated and theatrical to use “voices” to bring book characters to life! They will be close to the beach and intend to spend a lot of time playing in the water, sand, and sun. Must be a confident swimmer and enjoy beach life! Additional duties include the girl’s laundry, meal and snack prep, taking trips to the park/beach and reading daily. Family car is provided while on the job. Must have a clean record and valid DL.
They love their nannies and treat them like family! They expect their nanny to be HIGHLY trustworthy. Someone who is responsible, reliable and communicative. Someone who sees this as a career, not a steppingstone job. They are a fun family who enjoys laughing and having a good time. They pride themselves on raising RESPECTFUL children with good manners. They do not allow their children to disrespect their nannies or caretakers. In return, they expect their caregiver to treat their children with LOVE and respect at ALL times. You must be reliable, thoughtful and creative. Their children love to explore and be imaginative. You should be able to talk about the great outdoors and seeing different shapes in clouds. Laughter and patience are a must! They are type “B” family and prefer a nanny who isn’t too rigid. They roll with the punches and seek a nanny who can fly by the seat of their pants alongside them! Reliability is of utmost importance. They are flexible with advanced notice and support their nanny in all of their dreams and endeavors, but seek someone who communicates these needs upfront! Must be mentally and emotionally mature to have adult conversations and communicate clearly and effectively with the parents. Both parents work from home and will be around the house throughout the day.
Pay is $25-30/hour. Benefits include 2 weeks of paid vacation (so long as it coincides with the family’s), 2 paid sick days and paid holidays. Start date is July 28th!
