Intuitive & Empathetic Bilingual Nanny (27705)
Updated: Sep 14
Select Sitters is seeking an intuitive and empathetic Spanish-speaking nanny for a family in Durham starting September 20th. The family has a sensitive and imaginative 8-year-old boy and an extroverted and playful 3.5-year-old girl. The children love to read, explore the walking trails in their neighborhood, go on picnics, and do any kind of art and craft project! It’s very important to the parents that they raise kind and considerate children, and they hope that their nanny will have an optimistic view on life to encourage this kind of behavior further. The perfect fit would be an engaging nanny that will connect with the children, pick their battles, give them choices to make a decision, and ensure that the children feel heard and respected.
The typical schedule will be Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:30-5:30 PM, they are also open to afternoon hours all week versus the full days if the nanny prefers. Their oldest will be attending virtual school, so a nanny who would be willing to assist with that would be helpful if the mom is pressed for time. Eventually, they would like their nanny to transport their youngest to school, the park, and potentially swim lessons too. The family will provide a car for transportation, but they would require a nanny with an excellent driving record. Some light housekeeping would be greatly appreciated which will include: folding and putting away laundry, unloading the dishwasher, general tidying up after the kids, and heating up meals. An extra bonus would be a nanny who loves to organize!
Paid vacation, paid sick leave, and paid holidays will be included!
The ideal candidate would have/be:
3-5 years of professional childcare experience
Clean driving record and criminal record
CPR & First Aid certifications
Fully vaccinated (Covid, Flu, and TDAP)
Fluent Spanish speaker
