Are you an active person, full of energy and bubbling with enthusiasm? Perfect, in this role, your bright and happy outlook will bring a burst of positivity to each day.
Full Time Nanny for two young children in the Hither Green Area of London.
Happy Nest Nanny Agency is seeking a positive, upbeat, and energised nanny to provide sole-charge care for one child full time and one after school pick up in lovely Hither Green, SE London. This position is to start at the beginning of March.
These children – a 2.5 year-old, and a 5 year-old – have a diverse list of interests. From telling stories and making you act them out to climbing, dancing and riding their bikes. As well as arts and crafts, outdoor fun, and the sensory wonders of the world, these two are busy little people.
So you’ll need to keep up with them. Better still, it’s important to match their pace and bring some enthusiasm of your own. And whilst they do love their on-the-go fun, calming activities that encourage quiet time are also strongly encouraged. Which means you’ll know when to introduce puzzles, drawing and reading time for some downtime.
- Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5.30pm
School drop offs and pick ups with 5 year old and with the 2.5 year old you will simply be able and willing to have lots of fun. Your openness, and readiness to be flexible with practices as you continue to grow and learn together will be highly valued.
The location of this nanny position in Hither Green means you don’t need to be a driver. You will be looking after a funny and caring little boy with buckets of creativity. Come rain or shine, he’s all about the fire engines, trains and being outside. He also loves his storybooks. The older child is curious and independent and knows how to persevere with things. Have a little patience and she’ll conquer the world. It’s all fun from arts and crafts to getting your hands dirty in the garden, to climbing trees and acting out her favourite books with you (cheetahs are a particular favourite).
So despite her confidence, your careful guidance (you’ll be an expert problem solver) will be well received here. Honestly, a strong personality and the wisdom to accept help. A leader in the making, if you ask us!
Do you consider yourself something of a Masterchef? You’ll truly standout in this role if you’re a good cook.
Which really just means that you can prepare nutritious and healthy meals for little people from scratch using fresh ingredients. Whilst you’re at it, if you can do your best to smuggle in as many veggies as possible, then this role is perfect for you.
With a nearly 3 year old, and a 5 year old on your hands, you’ll no doubt be busy! But don’t stress too much, your inner calm will keep things running smoothly throughout the day. It’ll also ensure you juggle everything thrown at you.
You’ll be well positioned for this role if you’ve got several years experience as a nanny caring for pre-school aged children in the family home.
Which means you’ll be familiar with juggling two different ages, at very different stages of their exploration and development. And you’ll also be independent minded, needing very little direction.
As the nanny to both of these two superstar littles, you’ll be a superstar yourself. We bet you’ll personify that careful balance of setting boundaries with ease and calm whilst also knowing when to loosen the apron strings.
Mum is originally from Germany so it would be a great benefit if you could speak German as the children are bilingual to encourage this, but not essential.
- A recognised childcare qualification
- An up to date paediatric first aid certificate
- Minimum at least 2 years experience
- Enhanced DBS certificate
- German Speaker (not essential)
