High Gate Park,
Starting ASAP and located in the High Gate Park area of Kingston, this active family is looking for a calm, friendly Nanny for their 3 tweens, 12-year-old boy/girl twins, and a 10-year-old girl.
The hours are flexible but are roughly Monday to Friday, from 2:30-7:30pm.
Since the children are a bit more independent, the family is looking for an approachable Nanny who can help with the day-to-day happenings of a very busy household. Duties will include drop off and pick up from school and driving to and from activities, preparing healthy after school snacks, getting a healthy family dinner started, help with homework and setting out clothes for the next day, monitoring tech times and enforcing teach rules, monitoring outside and inside play and assisting the children with prepping their lunches for the next day. The family likes to keep a tidy home and are looking for a Nanny who appreciates the same. They do employ a housekeeper once a week, so no deep cleaning is required.
They have a 4-year-old Portuguese Water Dog who is a much-loved member of the family. Daily walks would be required, so you must love dogs!
When the children are at school the Nanny will be tasked with household organization, tidying the living areas and kitchen, folding and putting away laundry, decorating for festive seasons, and errands such as grocery shopping.
The family likes to laugh, so a good sense of humor is a must! With three tweens in the home, there are a lot of moving parts and emotions, a Nanny who can be kind, fun, understanding, and is able to build a rapport with the children is key. Someone who can be firm when needed, but positive and fair would be the ideal fit.
Driving is required and the Nanny must have their own vehicle.
If you are looking for a happy, energetic family to work with for the long term, we encourage you to apply!
Only candidates in Canada will be considered.
