    $29/hour; $60,477.04/year gross + life insurance, health insurance and dental

    Overview

    This is a chance to work with a wonderful, loving, warm Waldorf family in Chelsea, Sunday through Thursday, 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. The family is currently in Maine, so initial meetings will be via phone, Skype, or FaceTime, and then there may be a trial in Maine. Please apply today if you're interested!

    The Ideal Sitter for this Job

    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. When she left for three months to complete it, they figured out a way for her to work part time so she could continue working with them.

    Aside from not minding to travel and knowing every other year you would spend Christmas in the Bahamas, 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 two weeks — more like 10 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!

    Schedule

    The schedule is Sunday through Thursday, 12 PM - 8 PM (often you will be able to go home a bit earlier, however you will always be compensated $1,163.02/week gross).

They will need help during holidays every other year (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.). You will also have approximately 8 weeks off per year paid. During travel, you will be compensated $350/day.
