A great fun-loving family that we have worked with before located in Waunakee is looking for a Full Time Nanny to begin in August for their 3 sons. Their 7 year old son is in elementary school and will be starting 2nd grade in the fall. He is talkative, bright and curious. He loves to learn. Their middle son is turning 5 in September and will be in 4K in the fall. He is very sweet, creative and bright. He loves to tell stories. He is also very physical and needs activity to burn off his energy. Their youngest will be 3 in August and will be in preschool in the fall. He is also very bright and very sweet. He loves to play both solo and in groups and tries to be a part of the older boys play. His current favorites are reading , puzzles and trains.
Their older son will be in elementary school all day and dropped off by bus at 2:50. The other two boys will be at a local preschool and 4K program until 11am. Depending on scheduling, the younger son will be in preschool 3 or 5 days a week.
They describe their ideal nanny as warm and loving but also firm and comfortable de-escalating brotherly conflicts putting them in time out, as three boys can be a challenge. Their children need someone who can sense when they need calm and when they need energy and adjust accordingly. The children are extremely affectionate and loving. They are also full of energy and function best when there is a mix of physical activities as well as quiet ones (e.g. park time vs. reading time). They try to get them out of the house frequently and the current nanny takes them to different activities (library, gyms, park, children’s museum) almost every day.
The main duties will include helping to keep a busy family organized by providing high quality care for their kids, children’s laundry, preparing healthy meals and snacks, light household pickup and grocery shopping and errands if needed. The salary is negotiable based on prior experience including 3 paid sick/personal days, 2+ weeks paid vacation, paid holidays. GREAT FAMILY!
