Overview

We have a wonderful opportunity to join a fun-loving and active family in the gorgeous mountain town of Durango, Colorado. This creative, nurturing, and nature-loving split home family is looking for the perfect nanny to lovingly care for their 13, 10, and 6-year-old daughters!

 

 

In this role, you can expect to work with three fun-loving daughters as you demonstrate the ability to multi-task, create engaging activities and anticipate the family’s needs in a fun, lighthearted environment. The nanny will be assisting in day-to-day routines for the children alongside their loving and involved parents who live in two separate homes. The ideal candidate will have experience working with multiple children at a time and will have a warm, cheerful, and optimistic personality, with an open, engaging, and adventuresome outlook. Both parents are avid outdoor explorers who spend their leisure time paddle-boarding, skiing, mountain biking, practicing yoga and playing in the nearby river and are excited to find a candidate who is going to become part of the team.

 

 

Your daily schedule will vary and may include helping the girls get ready for school, preparing lunches, and playing with their youngest daughter while the older girls are in school during the day. Other day to day tasks might include managing schedules, driving, laundry, light cooking and healthy meal preparation, picking up after the children and helping to maintain a tidy home, and planning lots of fun outdoor activities like heading down the river to swim, or taking ski trips to Purgatory and Silverton! The family employs a housecleaner and other household staff to make sure the home is organized, tidy and a wonderful place to live.

 

 

Compensation is generous and dependent on experience with a guaranteed 30 hours/week and opportunity for additional hours, overnights, and travel with advanced notice. Dad and Mom live in separate, but nearby homes and the schedule will be flexible within reason to accommodate Dad’s varied travel schedule.

 

A separate studio nanny accommodation is provided on a nearby property within walking distance from the family’s home. Paid time off, sick days and benefits such as ski passes, gym memberships, museum passes, and a nanny vehicle to use while working will be provided.
