About the job
A growing family in Greenwich Village is seeking a full-time governess for their two children, aged 2 and 4-years-old (and a baby on the way). The schedule will typically be 10am/12noon-6pm Monday through Friday. There is already a live-in nanny who will run point on the majority of childcare duties, though the governess will be required to assist with drop-off and pick-up, play-dates, bath time, de-cluttering the children’s play space and bedrooms (and ultimately teaching them to take responsibility for this), organizing their belongings, and preparing snacks, though no meal prep will be required as the nanny manages this. Other responsibilities will include helping the children with reading, writing, and math, ensuring they are reaching educational milestones and generally reinforcing manners, etiquette, and social skills that the children can successfully implement in daily life.
The ideal candidate will have an educational background or robust experience in Early Childhood Development and previous experience of working in a comparable role. Mandarin/Spanish language skills are a huge plus, as is the ability to read music/play a musical instrument (particularly the piano). The ability to drive is ideal, but not essential. The family travel both domestically and internationally from time to time, and would prefer the governess to join them when they do. Candidates must be fully COVID vaccinated to apply for this role. If you are interested, with a US passport, Green Card or EAC, please apply to KP332.
