This is a chance to work with a wonderful, loving, warm family in Chelsea, Monday through Friday, 12 PM - 8 PM, and travel with the family to the Bahamas and on other fun trips. The family has an 8-year-old girl, 5-year-old boy, and 1 1/2-year-old girl, and there's lots of help so you'll never really be with all three children at once. All the cooking is from scratch (no packaged foods) and there's a chef who makes all the sauces for the week, so it's a lot of prep and then adding sauces. There will be lots of art projects and creativity in this position and it's also important that you are happy to work in a big loving family environment. The income is $29/hour gross, about $60,000/year, plus lots of benefits (benefits value is $31,039/year). Please apply today if you're interested!
A happy, kind, joyful, organized person who appreciates nature, art, music and can run around with boys — a team player who cares about the children. The family has a nanny now who has a degree as a teacher and their previous nanny who was with them for five years got her degree while working for them. If you have a teaching or education background, this is a plus but not a requirement.
Aside from not minding to travel and knowing every other year you would spend Christmas in the Bahamas (if you are open to it), a love and appreciation of nature is important as the family is outdoors a lot. Since there are two nannies you would be asked only once a year to travel up to 12 days at a time. These days are 8 to 9 hour work days with breaks. The family asks for one night every two months during the week. Once a year mom and dad travel for four days. At that time both nannies and the cleaning person help out in the home plus they hire additional help so no one is ever alone with all three kids.
If you have any background in Waldorf, this is a huge plus! Also, a love of cooking from scratch is a huge plus. They make lots of muffins, make their own granola bars, everything is from scratch and their are no packaged foods. The family is happy to help teach you about cooking too!
