Creative and Dynamic Nanny (27603)
Energizer bunny needed for a busy family with an almost 3 year old boy in South Raleigh starting soon. If you enjoy keeping active with various activities, this position will be perfect for you! This position boasts weekly overtime as well as two mornings a week to yourself during preschool hours. The best match would be patient yet firm and not phased by the typical toddler temper tantrums from time to time. They need a nanny who can help them set boundaries and offer some structure for their little guy. The family also has an older child who is 14 and will need to be dropped off from school, he is totally independent but needs a ride to school each morning. In the fall, their active 3 year old will be attending preschool two mornings a week so after dropping off both the children at school, you will have a couple of hours to yourself or to run child related errands before picking up the youngest around 11:45am. In the afternoons or non-school days, they are looking for someone who is proactive about planning activities both at home, outside, and taking their son on outings. He is in a stage where he is curious about the world and they would love someone who is up for taking him on adventures and being creative (while still recognizing he has a short attention span). He loves walks, swimming, gymnastics, and riding his bike and once you get settled with the family, they would love to sign him up for more classes during the week.
The family is looking for a nanny to focus pretty much solely on their child, they don’t need cooking or cleaning, but may occasionally ask for you to pick up something from the store during his preschool hours. They do expect that anything taken out throughout the day is put away and tidied up before the end of the day. This position does involve the nanny driving their vehicle (with mileage reimbursement included) and the family lives about 20-25 minutes commute from the school, so they do need someone who is comfortable with that part of the job. The family does have cats who are in a separate enclosed office and will not interact or be in the common areas where the nanny works (no pet dander in the home). A unicorn nanny would also be willing to travel with the family for long weekends or maybe a once a year week-long vacation, but this is not a deal breaker. They are hoping for a long-term member of their family to start tomorrow, but want to find the right fit and will settle for someone who is available in the *very* near future!
