  • Overview

    A loving family of 3 is looking for an extra set of hands to join their family as they move to a new house right on the beach in Naples, Florida!

    This nanny will be supporting a SAHM and an active almost-4-year-old son in all aspects of care, including driving him to and from preschool and other activities, assisting him with childhood development and practical implementation of his preschool curriculum while at home, enjoying the beautiful outdoors of Florida through sports, afternoons at the beach, and creating a fun, interactive playful environment. Other responsibiltiies will include preparing healthy meals for the child, helping him keep his room clean in between visits from the weekly housekeeper, and doing his laundry as needed. The father travels frequently for work so this is an exceptional role for someone who feels comfortable with being part of the family and being mom's right-hand-person!

    This family values honesty and flexibility and are hoping to find a candidate who fits into their active, fun-loving lifestyles and is both available to join them on travel and stay at home with the son and provide sole charge while the parents do some traveling on their own. The family has two small elderly dogs and while the candidate will not be responsible for takign care of the dogs, they will be present in the day-to-day environment.

Naples is a beautiful small town (approximately 20,000 people) on the southwest coast of Florida that looks out over the Gulf of Mexico that boasts calm-water beaches and dolphin-spotting opportunities. Temperature highs range between 75 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, and several art galleries and restuarants adorn the city's two main streets for you to enjoy during your time off. The family will also be providing a nanny car and a gym membership for you to use at your discretion.

     

    This is a full-time live-in role with a schedule of approximately 40-45 hours per week that will be set 1 to 2 weeks prior, with flexibility for date night babysitting and overnight care arranged with advanced notice. Compensation is competitive and commesurate with experience. Start date is mid-August once the family has settled into their new home. Relocation candidates welcome!
