Skilled and Enthusiastic Nanny (27605)
Select Sitters is seeking an experienced, thoughtful and engaging nanny for a family in Raleigh starting in January or February of 2022. They have a smart and talkative 3 year old and a sweet newborn who will be 6 months old at the start date. The general schedule will be four days each week from 11:00am - 5:00pm, but the family has flexibility and could use more help (around 30 hours per week) if that was their nanny’s preference.
The right nanny for this family will be a natural teacher who enjoys facilitating child-friendly activities, and can find teachable moments in each day! They feel that their 3 year old son could benefit from a more structured day that includes enriching, age appropriate, themed activities and learning through play. The nanny should also be a great multitasker who is flexible and able to also provide warm and fully attentive care for the baby. Someone who is intuitive and will pick-up on the needs of the children, making adjustments to daily routines as needed.
The ideal candidate will be a calming, patient, and proactive nanny who loves nature walks, will happily chat about cars/trucks/machinery with the preschooler, and learn all about the children's interests. The nanny should also be extremely comfortable with infant/toddler care routines and safety oriented.
This multi-cultural family would love to have a nanny who speaks Mandarin, but it is not a requirement. The family is being Covid cautious and would like a nanny who takes a similar approach to health and safety. They plan to start with a 6 month contract and will offer a competitive pay rate, along with benefits such as paid sick leave and health insurance stipend.
