Fun-Loving and Attentive Nanny (27703)
Updated: Jun 14
Select Sitters is seeking an energetic and organized nanny/teacher for a family in Durham starting soon! The family has one adorable 2-year-old girl who takes a bit to warm up to strangers. She is bilingual in English and Mandarin so they need a patient teacher minded individual who will enjoy helping her learn and grow. Their ideal nanny would be experienced in planning educational and developmentally appropriate activities for their daughter. She enjoys dancing, arts and crafts, and being outdoors so their nanny should be comfortable mixing educational/hands-on learning with free-play and fun. One set of grandparents do live with the family, however, once their daughter warms up to the nanny, they plan to have the grandparents be hands-off with the day aside from preparing lunch for the child. During the afternoon nap time, the family would ask for assistance with light housework including the child’s laundry and dishes and would allow time for the nanny to lesson plan and prep any materials needed.
Since they do have grandparents in their lives, they are hoping to find a nanny who is taking COVID seriously. Their ideal nanny would have a small bubble and be willing to get tested before beginning the position. They are looking for someone who is vaccinated for COVID as well.
The typical schedule would be Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm.They would love to have a nanny who is potentially open to occasional Saturday hours (approximately 9am/9:30am-1:30), but this is not required. They are willing to guarantee 40 hours a week.
They are hoping for their nanny to join them soon, but are willing to wait for the right long-term match. They are willing to offer paid holidays and up to two weeks of paid time off for the right fit.
Ideal Nanny Would Have:
-3-5 years of professional experience with children
-Previous nanny experience strongly preferred
-Experience with planning activities
-Preschool teaching experience is a plus
-CPR/First Aid Certification
-Ability to Commit Long-Term
-Extra Bonus for someone who speaks Mandarin (not a requirement)
