  • Overview

    A fun and active family of four is looking for a rockstar nanny to join them in Palm Springs as they prepare to 'make waves' (literally) in a new home in the Caribbean! The mother used to be a nanny herself and is looking forward to meeting a loving, proactive, and flexible nanny. 
     
    This candidate will be traveling with the family from their Palm Springs home to the Caribbean for 4-6 weeks as they research, house hunt, and enjoy some fun in the sun. The family will then return to Palm Springs to arrange their move and would love to have the nanny accompany them for a second trip to the Caribbean and help them settle in. The family is willing to consider offering the perfect candidate a long-term position if everyone is happy with the temporary situation!
     
    Both children, ages 5 and 6, have sensory processing issues and allergies, so the nanny will be asked to prepare healthy, gluten-free meals for the children and assist in their holistic meal plans. A candidate with experience with children with sensory processing issues who are on the spectrum is a plus, however the family's main goals are to find someone with a big heart, patience, and emotional strength. This position will be live-in while in Palm Springs with a private bedroom and bathroom and the nanny will have private accommodations while in the Caribbean as well.  Some household assisting such as doing children's laundry during downtime, running errands, sourcing household supplies, and helping the family to stay organized will be appreciated, while the main focus will be on planning activities and craft projects for engaged and active 5 and 6 year olds. PA or family assisting experience would be an added bonus for taking on tasks such as "finding the right kind of cheese at the grocery store," but is not a requirement. This family treats their nannies well as Mom is an ex-nanny herself, and enjoys sending their nannies to the chiropractor or to massages and making sure their favorite foods are in the home.
     
    The family is ready to start interviewing candidates ASAP and bring someone down for a paid trial to meet the whole family prior to their start date. The family is looking for someone who can commit for at least 4-6 months, with preference given to candidates who are excited about potentially staying with the family long-term!
