About the Children
Boy, 8.5- Going into third grade and super energetic. He loves to read and is really into power rangers and Spiderman. He plays chess at school and loves robotics and coding. He is a good kid who needs to be directed. He can be a bit lost in his own world and distracted, so he needs more direction. Such a funny and good humored kid. Girl, 5.5- She is more organized and a bit more on top of her own stuff. He is quite the little helper. She is so smart and just so intellectual already. She loves to be nurtured and stimulated at all times. She's also easy going and a bit more of a rule follower and younger sister in that way. She loves arts and crafts! She loves board games and dolls and stuff like that.
It's part childcare and part household management. The nanny would be working between mom and dad's separate home (about a 5 minute walk from each other), so there is no end to the organization and attention to detail that one should possess and really one that feels most confident possessing! The general days would look like this: Taking care of the kids, taking them to activities, etc. Taking things and being organized to make sure that things are where they need to be between the two households. Being the point person for all organization and scheduling, especially since the kids will be attending two different schools (they may hire a part-time after school babysitter to help in the fall once they know schedules). They have a shared app (Cozy) where all the kids' schedules are and they manage them together. They have chores during the week to get their TV time on weekends. Tracking chores in two households and keeping on top of it. Then there is the time when the kids are in school, typically from 8-3 PM everyday. This is an independent person's time to thrive! A time when you can get all the organizing and planning for the day and week done. A time to prep meals, plan meals, and do the grocery shopping solo. A person who loves to make a list and tackle that whole list is going to shine and thrive here! It's the best time of the day to be organizing the kids' stuff, their laundry, etc. while they are not there so you can focus on your tasks at hand. It's a mental and emotional breather, while still exercising your brain and achieving the tasks.
The kids split their time 50-50 between mom and dad's house. All adults are vaccinated.
$80-100k/year DOE, plus metrocard, PTO, sick time off, full healthcare stipend, and guaranteed income.
