Private family is looking to hire a Nanny in Greenwich, CT
The Ideal Candidate: This family is looking to hire a trustworthy, kind, and engaging Nanny to provide loving care to their two girls (3.5yrs and 3 months old). The Nanny will primarily be responsible for the older daughter but may have instances where they need to help out with the infant and must have a gentle touch and be comfortable providing care to infants, including feeding, changing diapers, putting her down for naps, playing, reading, and bathing her. This family is looking for a Nanny who will engage with their older daughter (singing, dancing, being creative, etc.) when she is home from school/camp – a genuine, real-life "Mary Poppins". It is big PLUS if the nanny has previous experience teaching or working with children in a formal setting and knows developmentally and age-appropriate activities and supports their physical and social development. The family would like the Nanny to be active, take the children for walks, play outside, arrange and host playdates with neighbors, friends, and schoolmates, take them to activities/classes, etc. The older daughter is either at school or camp for half of the day, so there are limited hours when the Nanny would need to spend time with both children. Other duties include: being responsible for preparing healthy, fresh food meals and snacks for their older daughter, bathing, dressing her and making sure she has a tidy appearance, handling the children's laundry/ironing (clothing only), light housekeeping including any cleaning related to tidying up after the children eat/play and making sure the playroom and the girls' room/nursery are in order. Keeping an inventory of all items related to children's needs (i.e. toothpaste, diapers, food items, etc) and making sure Mom is aware of all needs ahead of running out so she can order what's needed. There is a full-time Housekeeper who handles the other household cleaning so there is no deep cleaning involved. It helps if the Nanny can drive and must have a clean driving record. Can have their own car but all driving with the children will be done in the family car. The family travels to FL several times throughout the year and would love the Nanny to travel with them to provide additional support to the parents and be an extra set of eyes/hands.
What Works Best for Family: The ideal candidate will be calm and positive with a warm, friendly demeanor and a great communicator. Someone with a cooperative attitude who is respectful of the parents and their decisions, willing to follow instructions, and not make any changes to childcare or routine without discussing with parents beforehand. Open communication is key. Someone who is balanced, with a low-stress personality, and keeps a cool head at all times. This family would like someone who is knowledgeable and capable around safety and someone who is CPR/Choking/First Aid certified. If they are not and there is a cost associated, the family will help with that. They would also like someone who is comfortable around a pool and can swim for safety purposes as there is a pool at their home as well as at the grandparent's home.
