  • Overview

    A loving, laid-back, and entrepreneurial family of three is seeking a reliable, down-to-earth, humble, and energetic nanny to care for their soon-to-be 1-year-old boy. Currently based in Annapolis, Maryland, the family splits time between their Annapolis residence and their other primary residence in Winter Park, Florida.

     

    The family owns several businesses that have become lovingly intertwined with their day-to-day routine and sometimes work from home. They are a tight-knit family who treasures their family time and enjoy swimming, taking walks, and coming together for family meals. Having raised two boys who are now in their 20s, they are excited to embark on this journey with their 10-month-old son and provide him with a stable and nurturing environment where he can grow and thrive. While the majority of their time will be spent at the family's home in Winter Park, FL over the coming year, the family also plans on spending time at their 12-acre home in Annapolis and property in Cancun, with additional travel to be expected throughout the year.

     

    The perfect candidate for this position will have loads of energy to implement a fun-filled and enriching day for their son, while still providing an environment that is structured for his physical and mental development. Experience with infants is key and someone who can jump in as a resource for transitioning into solid foods, as well as knowledge of developmental milestones and best practices, will be a huge plus. Reliability and privacy are very valued assets in this home, so a candidate who shares these values will be appreciated. The family also hopes to find a candidate who has a deep sense of initiative and a proactive can-do attitude. While the family employs a housekeeper, they value cleanliness, hygiene, and tidiness, so a nanny who values cleanliness and is willing to tidy up after meals and activities and teach their son good hygiene and hand-washing habitswill be valued as well! As the family splits their time between their two homes, flexibility to travel with them or to occasionally stay behind and watch after their dog will be an important part of this role.

     

    This is a full-time position with the schedule falling on Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Private and separate nanny accommodations will be offered near the family's main home in Annapolis, MD. The candidate will be given a relocation bonus to help secure live-out accommodations while they are in Florida if not local to the area. Flexibility to provide occasional evening and weekend coverage will be appreciated. The family is offering $20-25 per hour with room to grow as well as generous sick days, paid time off, and a relocation bonus. They may be open to offering a health care stipend for the right candidate. They hope to find someone to join their family as soon as possible!

     

    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 and passport. The family will be prioritizing candidates with a college degree.
