Would you like to spend your fall splitting your time exploring the white Cliffs of Dover in England  and a sprawling New York estate with a creative 2-year-old boy? An artistic and intellectual family of three is looking for a full-time live-in, French-speaking nanny to care for their 2-year-old son for years to come.


This family is looking for a nanny who is adaptable, has a great sense of humor and flexibility, and has experience creating energetic and engaging activities with young children.The family lives on an estate in New York about 2.5 hours from Manhattan.
