A busy couple in the fashion industry is seeking a rockstar nanny/family assistant to join their team! They have two boys, ages 3 and 4, and would like to find someone who is a seasoned professional, having experience caring for multiple children who are close in age. The ideal candidate has preschool experience, is very familiar with this age group, and has creative, age appropriate activities ready to go! The family is seeking someone who is energetic, fun, and has a great sense of humor as there is a lot of laughter in this home!

This is a warm and loving household, and the perfect match will have a natural love for children, and genuinely loves to engage and play with kids. We would like to find someone who understands the art of being firm but loving with discipline, and can set boundaries for the boys so that they thrive on a daily basis. Please know how to read a room, being mindful of when to step out, transition the kids to a new room/activity, provide personal space, quiet if someone is on the phone, etc.

The family assistant portion of this role will require someone who is also a quick thinker, self – starter, and takes initiative, keeping the preferences of mom and dad in mind. The kids are in school during the day, and while they are away, duties could include keeping their areas organized and tidy, throwing in their laundry, ordering items for the kids, scheduling play dates/activities/classes, maintaining their closets and keeping track of clothes they have outgrown, researching things for them to do, and other miscellaneous things for mom as needed.

MUST be an excellent communicator, available via phone if/when needed, and happy to have an open line of communication with mom and dad. Must be willing to go with the flow and be an easy going person/easy to get along with. There is one dog in the home, so please be animal friendly! This is a lovely, amazingly generous and fun family who is looking for their true right hand team member and BFF for their boys! They love to reward hard work and will take great care of you! Great opportunity for a career nanny seeking a long term fit!
