A family in the beautiful Inner West Suburb of Birchgrove are seeking an experienced, nurturing and reliable nanny to join their family and care for their happy two children aged 3 years old (B)  and 20 months old (G), twice a week.

 

 

 

.

The nanny’s main responsibility will be to care for both children, keeping them entertained with walks around the neighbourhood, playtime at nearby parks and in the backyard as well as age appropriate learning activities – songs, dance, art etc.

Currently the children rest / sleep during the middle of the day. During this time, it would be great for the nanny to assist with preparing some easy meals, and tidying up the areas the children have been playing in and the kitchen.

The family love the Montessori style of learning and the children will be attending a Montessori daycare. We are looking for a nanny who is familiar with this teaching style and who will encourage and be part of children’s individual growth and development. Someone who is environmental conscious and is a calm person will be a good fit.

The nanny’s responsibilities for this role will be as follows 

  • To care for the two children two days a week
  • Follow the child’s routine
  • Arrange age appropriate activities and take the children out into the fresh air to explore and play in the many local parks
  • Prepare and cook meals
  • Assist with some light household duties i.e. general tidying, laundry and clean floors when time permits

Start date: ASAP

Contract:   12 months with the possibility to extend

Pay:             $28-30 per hour + benefits 

The days and normal hours are –2 Days – 20 hours

Thursday                  8.00am – 6.00pm

Friday                        8.00am – 6.00pm

It is not necessary for the nanny to be able to drive, as the local public transport is very convenient. The eldest child will be attending daycare in the mornings from May, so if the nanny did drive then the families automatic car is available to be used.

The family’s expectations from their nanny are –

  • Must have a minimum of 3 years nanny experience
  • To have experience caring for children from 18 months to 5 years
  • To have knowledge of Montessori learning would be advantageous
  • Be reliable
  • Display strong communication skills
