  • Overview

    Dream job alert! Get ready to support a loving, mindful, and joyous family of four as they raise their two sweet sons. This family is super active and you can plan on traveling often, getting outside and playing, and being a collaborative member of this family's "tribe".

     

    The family is offering a competitive hourly rate and is open to relocating an all-star candidate to support them in their North Seattle home in a live-out capacity. Someone who brings years of experience, flexibility of schedule, an interest in child-led educational exploration and who shares a common love of a healthy, centered, and mindful lifestyle will thrive in this role for years to come. The family puts a high value on honesty and loyalty in their home and on their team, so holding this as a core value is important for the candidate as well!

    The ideal candidate will be warm, engaging, and above all someone who will nurture two curious boys ages 9 months and 2.5 years. An open mind, flexibility, and a team-centered attitude is a must. The family owns and operates their own bustling business which requires a lot of travel and flexibility in the busy season, so a candidate who is ready to go-with-the-flow as part of this team is key. A spirit of creativity and adventure is appreciated in this family, who loves to travel, laugh, practice yoga, and prepare healthy, beautiful meals in their home.

    This family is excited to find the perfect nanny to grow with their family for years to come. Someone who is familiar with attachment parenting, Waldorf philosophies, and wants to foster engagement and independence in these two boys will do well with this family. Both mom and dad place a high value on a community-minded, mindful environment and will be looking for a candidate who positively contributes to this lifestyle.

    The schedule will be Monday-Friday 9am-3pm with opportunity for additional hours and shifts with advanced notice. Hours during the busy season may differ with exciting travel to be expected. A candidate who can pick up on some family assisting tasks in the offseason will be appreciated. Hourly compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience and other wonderful benefits, including generous paid time off, healthcare stipend, and other perks will be offered.

    The start date for this position is July 2018! This position is open to all Adventure Nannies candidates who are legally able to work in the US, have valid passports and are able to travel internationally, and possess a driver’s license and clean driving record!

    The family is happy to assist with relocation costs for the right candidate.
