  • Overview

    This innovative and fun family is seeking a creative, intuitive, and playful nanny to care for their five-year-old girl and 15-month-old boy.

     

    Based in Williamsburg, this family loves to incorporate creativity into their home, their work, and their play. They have spent the past several years becoming increasingly involved in their community, from running a philanthropic organization to opening a garden and event space to making kombucha to fundraise for a local mobile soup kitchen. As they continue to dream big in all aspects of their life, they hope to find a nanny who dreams just as big, is as imaginative and passionate as they are, and is excited about implementing those traits while caring for their developing children.

     

    Both parents work from home and try to maintain a structured schedule to their day for both themselves and their children. While mom has a separate office in the house and feels it is important to let their nanny and children have their own space throughout the day, a candidate who is comfortable collaborating and working alongside the parents will be a huge asset to this home. They also place a huge emphasis on creative play and allowing their children to lead the way in their development and learning. The perfect candidate will be able to fit right into their home and have an open and flexible mindset to take in and collaborate with the family philosophy.

     

    This is a part-time position, with hours generally falling from 10am to 5pm three days a week, Monday, Friday, and a third day of their nanny’s choosing, as well as the occasional date-night coverage. A typical day would primarily be focused on caring for their toddler son, preparing light healthy snacks, picking up their daughter from school three blocks away, creating space for some imaginative playtime, and making sure the play areas stay tidy.

     

    This is a live-out position and the family will be giving preference to candidates within a commutable distance to Brooklyn. They are offering $25-$28 based on experience as well as health insurance, sick days, and a metro card. The family is excited to begin their search and find the perfect someone to join their team as soon as possible!
