Select Sitters is seeking a full time nanny for a family in Wake Forest starting in December. The nanny will care for a vibrant and chatty toddler who will be around 20 months old at the start date. The schedule will be Monday - Friday from 7:30am - 3:45pm. Mom is a teacher who tracks out and the family can offer 40 hours as needed for the nanny during track-outs as well.
The nanny should be patient and gentle, providing a calm, structured environment. Nanny should be playful and nurturing; engaging baby with creative and developmentally appropriate activities.
As he was born with some physical challenges which have delayed some gross motor and fine motor activity, the ideal candidate for this position will have experience caring for children with special needs. The nanny should be eager to learn about how to best meet his specific needs. The family will provide adequate training (including hands on time with parents initially).
The baby has therapy sessions to help with gross motor skills. Parents could be present, but the nanny should be comfortable standing in as caregiver during therapy in case a parent is unable to attend.
Light housekeeping only related to child care; laundry, meal prep, toy clean up. The family is open potentially to going on outings, but not immediately.
The family will provide paid vacation and sick leave.
