We are a very warm and loving family seeking a part-time nanny to help out with our 3.5 year old son, and occasionally with our infant daughter. This position could be live-out or live-in as we have a brand new, 2nd story carriage house suite with incredible mountain views available. The fully-furnished suite includes a gas fireplace, in-suite laundry, private balcony and overlooks a beautiful back yard very close to the river trails of Brackendale.
Seeking someone who is experienced with both pre-schoolers and infants. Must be energetic, creative, outgoing, conscientious, attentive, warm and affectionate, but firm. Knowledge of and experience with Montessori philosophies are an asset.
Outdoor play and exercise are important to us and we will ask that the children be taken outdoors to play regularly, regardless of weather conditions.
Music, art and imaginative play are also very important to us, in addition to activities that encourage mental stimulation and cognitive development. We try to stay away from plastic toys or anything that requires batteries as much as possible to encourage imagination and creativity. While caring for the children, we ask that you engage with them mindfully and strive to incorporate these creative elements into your day.
In addition to caring for the children, duties will include light housekeeping, some food preparation and cooking.
Your hours will vary week to week but average around 20-25 per week.
