Queen Elizabeth Park,
This placement's duration is for a minimum of 12 months.
This loving family located near Queen Elizabeth Park in a condo with a great view are looking for a long-term Nanny to help care for their sweet two-year-old son.
Their son is a charming toddler who loves reading, singing and dancing. He can communicate with a few ASL signs and is quickly learning more. He also has some medical issues and has Down syndrome. Due to his medical concerns, he is G-tube fed and is on oxygen supplied by nasal cannula. Experience in caring for individuals who have Down syndrome, developmental delays or medical needs would be a plus, but is not required. A love of children, attention to detail and a learning mindset are key!
Parents are detail oriented and clear verbal and written instruction will be provided. Initially, Mom will be in the home to teach and help with any questions. As the Nanny’s confidence grows, Mom will be away from the home more often and plans to pursue part-time work from home once the Nanny has settled into the role.
Given the medical fragility of their son, it is very important that the family stays healthy, so a Nanny who is conscious of health, cleanliness and hygiene is desired. You will be required to have all your up to date vaccinations and have a yearly flu shot. This also means that outings are very limited and the Nanny would spend nearly all of their time in the home, except when accompanied by Mom or Dad to an appointment.
Since the usual entertainment of outings and playdates is limited, the ideal Nanny will be playful, engaging and creative, coming up with new games, songs and simple learning activities to stimulate an active toddler. This job is a great opportunity for a Nanny to learn ASL and gain experience with simple medical equipment.
In addition to the daily tasks related directly to their son's care the family also expects the Nanny to do some light house-work as time allows, during naps or when Mom and/or Dad take their son to medical appointments. The family also employs a weekly cleaner who will take care of the more in-depth cleaning.
No pets in the home. No cooking required. No car or drivers licence required.
