  • Overview

    Do you know baby sign language? Have you helped newborns take their first bottle and introduced infants to their first solid foods? A loving and growing family in San Francisco is looking for an expert nanny to join them in October 2018. Their baby will be five months old when the position begins and the family is hoping to find someone who will grow alongside them for many years to come! 


    The new parents are looking to find someone who will be a knowledgeable collaborator in creating a nurturing environment for their child. They appreciate candidates who have a great working knowledge of developmental milestones and engaging ways to help children reach them. They are also excited to teach their baby sign language and would like a candidate experienced teaching infant sign language. Candidates with fluency in foreign languages including Mandarin, Spanish and French will also be valuable to this family.


    This is a high profile family who values privacy and discretion. Someone who pays very close attention to detail and who is very safety conscious will do well in this role, as the safety and security of the baby and family are paramount.
