Job details


A friendly American family living a 12 minute walk from Utrecht station seek a nanny available to work two five hour shifts each week. They are flexible on which days and timing of the hours although ideally not two consecutive days. Potential of more hours in the future.


The smiley baby boy was born at the end of September 2020. This is mainly a sole charge role although he is exclusively breastfeed. So the Mum will be around. The baby uses cloth diapers and natural products.


A nanny who can speak English with the parents and Dutch with the baby is a preference but not a requirement. 


A nurturing nanny, with a positive energy, who is happy to share ideas while being respectful and following parents wishes and requests on how the baby is cared for and raised. It’s vital you have a calm, patient and relaxed approach.


The family is vegetarian. It will be helpful if you are familiar with baby led weaning and preparing nutritious vegetarian meals for the baby. 


The family has a keen interest in the Montessori approach, the baby has a floor bed. They value using respectful language and explanations. Nanny needs to be happy to get down on the floor to play, interact and bond with the baby. 


If you have time to do nursery duties and when the baby is weaning preparing his meals that would be appreciated but not required as the focus is the baby. 


Dad works from home and plans to do so long term.


The house is currently under construction so a nanny who is adaptable and not easily phased is key. 


There is a cleaner every other week. Grandparents will come to stay in the downstairs apartment for 3 - 6 months each year.
