A warm and fun-loving family is seeking a gentle, nurturing, patient, and playful nanny with RIE experience who can keep up with and confidently care for their spirited soon-to-be 2-year-old boy! Based in San Francisco, CA, they are expecting their second child in February of next year and hope to find someone who can join their growing family as soon as possible.
This curious and sociable toddler lives in a home that values family time and a child-led, nurturing environment. They have placed an emphasis on cultivating a RIE-inspired home philosophy where their son can lead the way in his growth and development. They are very engaged in their son’s day to day life and hope to find a nanny with whom they can create a partnership of collaboration. They love the outdoors and exploring as a family, and their son especially loves to explore the beach and nearby Presidio Forest.
The perfect nanny for this family will have a fun-loving spirit with a sense of patience and initiative. A candidate who can be attuned to their child’s emotional and developmental needs, has a deep understanding of developmental milestones, and is open to communicating and collaborating with the family will be a valued asset to this home. A knowledge of RIE philosophies in particular will be greatly appreciated, however, the family is open to other philosophies such as Montessori, Waldorf, or Reggio. Leading a gentle, respectful, stimulating, and super fun child-led day is at the heart of this position, whether that be by spending time exploring Presidio Forest or organizing play dates and activities. Music, singing, and dancing is welcome! Someone who is excited to cook healthy, organic, nutrient-rich meals with no sugar and low gluten for their son will also be appreciated!
This is a 38 hour/week live-out position with the schedule falling on Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30am to 5pm and Fridays from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Flexibility to provide coverage for occasional date nights will also be appreciated. The family is offering $25-$30/hour with room to grow several months after baby number two arrives once mom returns to work. They are also offering generous paid time off, sick days, and federal holidays. Use of the family car to take their toddler out and about while on duty will be available as well.
This position is open to all Adventure Nanny candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license. The family is happy to consider relocation candidates for this position who possess the prerequisite experience!
