A professional, welcoming and kind family in Shorewood Hills is looking for a reliable after-school nanny for their two children, ages 8 and 3 with the focus being on their 8 year old.
Both parents are professors at UW-Madison and have very demanding schedules. When they are not working, they enjoy spending quality one-on-one time with their children. As a family they enjoy cooking & baking together, watching movies and spending time outdoors.
The son (8) has a love for science and enjoys going out in the yard to explore different bugs, finding new plants/flowers to learn about, and helping in the garden. He also enjoys cooking + baking, and recently baked a whole cake by himself. This last summer he rescued monarch caterpillars and really enjoyed watching the butterflies undergo complete metamorphosis!
The nanny's day will consist of picking the son up from school, driving to karate class 2x/week, preparing a healthy snack, engaging him in creative + fun educational activities, helping with homework, and picking the daughter up from daycare at the end of the day.
The family lives within a 5 minute walking distance from both schools, so if the weather is nice, the nanny can walk to pick the children up. In the wintertime and when the weather is not appropriate for walking, the nanny will need to use a vehicle to pick the children up. The nanny can choose to use their own vehicle or the family can provide one for the nanny's use while working.
The ideal nanny candidate will have a genuine passion for working with children, be responsible, caring, reliable, punctual and engaging.
The family hopes to find a nanny that is good with setting boundaries and being firm-but-kind when needed. Their son thrives on routine and the family will look to the nanny to help maintain his after-school schedule.
If the nanny is interested in adding an hour or two to the daily schedule, the family would appreciate help with meal prep, getting dinner started, general tidying of the house, and cleaning dishes. No heavy cleaning is needed. While this is an added bonus, the family's main goal is to find someone wonderful to be with their son after-school.
The position is to start as soon as possible and the family is interviewing now with the hopes of finding someone long-term!
