  • Overview

    Would you love to create and join in educational play with a bright and very verbal toddler? Are you a linguist who would like to impart your language skills on a sharp kid ready to learn her third language? Would you like to live where only the luckiest people get to vacation?! If you answered yes to these questions - we have the job for you! 


    A family of three that lives on the beautiful island of Nantucket is looking for an engaging and loving nanny to care for their 3-year-old daughter. The family values the opinions of people passionate about early childhood development and education.


    They regularly meet with a teacher to develop lessons plans specifically for their daughter, and are hoping to find a nanny who will eagerly and enthusiastically implement those educational plans. It is a bonus if you come into the position with existing early childhood education experience and ideas of your own! 


    The little girl is also bi-lingual fluent in both English and Spanish, and she has picked up some Mandarin as well from her part-time sitter. They would love to find someone to encourage growth with either of these languages or something new! 


    The family is happy to provide long-term accommodations in their home for a live-in position and would also be open to candidates who would prefer to live out. The schedule will be Monday, Thursday and Friday from 1-9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8am-1pm. The family occasionally takes trips into Boston and will invite their nanny to come. In both Nantucket and Boston the family will provide private, live-in accommodations in their home. They will also provide a nanny vehicle. 


    The family will request some assistance with household tasks like very light meal prep, children's laundry, managing inventory in the child's room/nursery, and keeping the children's areas clean and tidy. Someone who is proactive when they see something that needs to be done, and a supportive team player will do well in this role. 


    The family is looking to pay ~$20/hr and could be flexible for the right person with the perfect set of skills. They are also offering paid time off and private accommodations in their home. They are hoping to have someone on board by mid-August and they are open to relocation candidates. 


    • Interact confidently with active and curious 3-year-old girl
    • Plan and implement engaging and educational games 
    • Collaborate with parents and educators to create a stimulating environment for the child
    • Manage schedules and take the child to school and their various extracurricular activities
    • Plan enriching activities beyond basic care, including local outings and adventures
    • Household management tasks to include: groceries, meal prep, childrens laundry, general picking up around the house, keeping the child's areas organized and tidy
    • Occasionally travel with the family


    • 2 years full-time professional childcare experience
    • Early childhood education experience or experience with a second language would be a huge bonus! 
    • Bright, driven and confident interacting with children 
    • Valid driver's license and clean driving record
    • An excitement to live in Nantucket!
