Sweet energetic brothers need a nanny on Thursday and Friday’s from 13th August 2020. When the job begins the boys will be one and nearly four. The boys are very active, love reading, singing and going on adventures. The one year old is a confident walker. 

 

The nearly four year old attends international school full time. The one year old is in daycare from Monday - Wednesday’s. The Mum will do the school pick up on a Thursday. The nanny needs to pick the four year old up on a Friday lunchtime. You can do this on the bus. You don’t need to drive for this job. 

 

The hours will be 8 - 5pm. It’s unlikely the family needs much flexibility although if the nanny was interested in babysitting every so often that would be a bonus.

 

This is a sole charge job. Both parents' jobs are based out of the house.

 

You need to be safety conscious, be confident administering first aid and cautious as the boys are very adventurous. Ideal candidates need to be enthusiastic, lots of fun and genuinely enjoy being with children.

 

The family are happy for the nanny to plan classes, activities and trips for Thursday’s and Friday’s. It’s important you are happy to be outside as much as possible. There is a park one minute from the house and they are a ten minute bike ride from De Bos. The one year old is in a good daily routine for meal times and naps.

 

In regards to discipline the family like to offer the children choices, use explanations and working on teaching the children independence.

 

Nursery duties are not required in this job. Tidying up after the boys and encouraging the boys to tidy up is important. You also need to prepare lunches, snacks and dinner. It would be a bonus if you are happy to prepare dinner for the whole family. The family all eats the same meals. They eat a healthy, balanced diet. The youngest is no longer eating purees, he has mashed food and finger food. 

 

The family are currently away for the summer so are conducting video interviews. 

 

You don’t need to cycle for this job although there is access to a bike with a child seat and the family are considering purchasing a bakfiets. 

 

Experienced required: Caring for children under the age of four. 

 

Childcare qualifications are not required but it’s a bonus if you have studied early childhood development.

Important: The Mum returns to work on 20th August so you need to be available to start by that date.
