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.

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 or even Reggio Emilia, this is a plus! They are really looking for someone who is open to their style of parenting and learning with the kids that is very child-led. Also, a love of cooking from scratch is a huge plus.

The family is looking for someone Monday through Friday who is available 1:30 PM - 9:30 PM. Regularly the schedule will be 1:30/2 - 7:30 PM and there will be a calendar where you will see when the end time will be closer to 9:30 PM.
The family may occasionally ask if you can stay overnight. Once every few weeks, they'll ask if you can work on a weekend (upstate or in the city) and this will also be laid out in advance.
The family travels often and they will need help taking turns between you and the other nanny in traveling with them. During the summer, the schedule will be one week on, one week off, either upstate or in Maine.
