About the job

A growing family of three is seeking a nanny for the month of August at their home on Shelter Island. This can be a live-in or live-out role depending on the location of the nanny. This position has the potential to be permanent for interested parties. During the year the family resides in Brooklyn, and the nanny will need to live-out. The family currently has a 4-year-old son and they will be having a second child in December. The current schedule will be approximately 12:30-6:30pm, as the child is in camp during the morning hours. If a candidate needs full-time hours the family is happy to offer additional hours for date-nights and/or weekends. In January 2023 when the new baby arrives, the hours will be more standard, approximately 8am-6pm.

Job duties for this role include everything related to the child, such as keeping his room and belongings neat and tidy, child-related laundry, and children's meal prep. The family is open to a nanny who wants to work a full-day and handle housekeeping and family laundry during the morning hours, but this is not required. The family is seeking a nanny who has experience working with children at different developmental levels, as the children have an age gap of 5 years. The 4-year-old goes to Montessori school, so they would love to find someone who has familiarity with this style. This family is positive, communicative, organized, and flexible, and would love to find a nanny who shares these traits and values. The ideal candidate for this role will have a lighthearted vibe, and will have high emotional intelligence and the ability to instill this in children.

The family does travel during the year, including school vacations and 2 months on Shelter Island and they would love to find a nanny who is excited to travel with them. Driving is not required but would be a bonus, and the ability to swim and supervise children in the water is ideal. A COVID vaccine is required for this role. If you are legal to work in the US and would like to be considered for this position, please apply to AS318.
