Childcare & Tutoring
Part time nanny needed
NANNY FOR HOMESCHOOL BOYS: Hi! We are searching for an experienced and unflappable nanny for our two homeschooled boys, ages 9 and 7. If you love kids, are silly and fun, patient and kind, and can problem solve on your feet, then this is the job for you! We live in High Springs, a 20 minute drive north of Oaks Mall, 5 miles west of I-75.
The outcome for this position is to relieve some of the homeschool and household duties in care of our two boys so mom & dad can work. Hours required are two, four-hour shifts per week. Preferably M-W afternoons, however we can be flexible.
Job responsibilities include:
- Creating a stimulating and creative environment. This is not a babysitting job. It requires your leadership in planning for activities, games, and projects that will be interactive and immersive for the boys.
- Keep both boys engaged in either creative play or their homeschooling
- Proactively caring for boys laundry (one load for each) and enlisting boys to help you with sorting & folding
- Ensuring the boys put away their various projects and toys in the correct spot (!!) at the end of the day
- Building a relationship of trust and expectation that you are their advocate and unconditional loving caretaker
We have a fantastic wooded backyard, cupboards overflowing with project materials, and a huge park and awesome library nearby.
The boys are sweet-natured and super-creative and will love your attention. Outdoor play is encouraged as well as imaginative play or project-based learning (no electronics!). They also love to read and narrate stories while you type them on their computer.
We are a laid-back family used to having nannies, so please feel free to speak up and ask any question! Note, one or both parents will be home during the day, however we are well-versed in staying out of your way. The kids will be 100% yours unless you ask us to step in to help. Please be comfortable with pets and have experience as a nanny as well as experience providing transportation for children.
Pay is $15/hour. Thanks in advance and we can’t wait to meet you! Contact Kate @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
