Family Background
A family of four, the father works full time, and the mother is currently completing a degree which once finished she will return to work.  They have two lovely children, a three year old son who attends half day nursery and a one year old daughter.  The family are bi-lingual and all speak fluent English and French.  They have no pets.  They have a part time housekeeper who attends the property to do all the deep cleaning and regularly housework at the moment.  They are a generous and kind family and their current nanny has been with them for a number of years.
 
Duties
You will have sole charge of the children, and although the mother and father are very interactive, your main role will be to cherish and care for the children.  You should be energetic, pro-active and organised.  Willing to arrange fun activities and playdates for the children, helping them develop and grow, through fun and play.  You should be practical and hands on, and have experience working with children in this age range.  Your focus is 100% on the children, but you should muck in with family life, help tidy up and clear the kitchen, with a can-do attitude, as the family love to have a nanny/housekeeper who enjoys helping out around the house, taking pride in their work.  You should enjoy cooking fresh, healthy food for the children to enjoy and be flexible around the families schedule so that if the parents are about, to assist with general family routines and life. The family are looking for someone to stay with them long term so you should be happy to help with light housekeeping as the role evolves, the youngest may attend nursery in the mornings next year.
