This East Nashville family is on the search for a great part time nanny for their almost 4 year old boy and 18 month old daughter. They are a fun and laid back family that needs a reliable nanny to provide educational stimulation and fun for their kids two days a week. Mom is a hair dresser so a reliable nanny is imperative as she will not be paid if she has to be home unexpectedly due to a nanny’s late notice unavailability. They are happy to be flexible with the nanny but need overall consistency. A fun and nurturing nanny that enjoys working with preschool ages on creative activities would be ideal!
2 days per week (probably Tuesday/Thursday, but will be discussed with the nanny to decide)
Hours will be either 9-5 or 10-6 and can be determined by what works best with the nanny
14-16 hours per week / will decide on an amount of guaranteed hours
A typical day for this family lately has been: Wake up and eat breakfast, get ready for the day, sit down with 4 year old for a “morning meeting”, play time, lunch, nap, play time. This family is very flexible and each day does not have to look the exact same. They have scheduled sleep times that work the kids but the other activities can vary depending on the children’s interests each day. The morning meeting is a simulated activity based on what the 4 year old boy does at school. This consists of some type of educational activities depending what he is working on at the time. The parents are happy to provide materials for the nanny but it would also be great if the nanny has creative ideas on their own and is able to take charge of this. The children do not have strict screen time boundaries, but parents do not want this to be a crutch. They would like the children to be active and engaged in play and education throughout the day with the nanny such as inside and outdoor play. Incorporating learning into this as much as possible would be wonderful!
