Overview

An adventurous family based in Dorado, Puerto Rico, is seeking a multi-lingual, live-in travel nanny/educator to provide care and develop and implement an academic curriculum for their bubbly 3 year old girl, starting full-time from April 2024, but with the aim of having a candidate join them on a few international trips between now and then. The family spend the summers/ hurricane season traveling, and the candidate will accompany them.

 

The schedule will be 50 hours per week, divided over 6 days, as follows: Monday through Thursday from 9am-5pm, which would include a school block of 2-3 hours in the morning, a midday break for lunch and planning between 12-2:30/3pm, followed by a mid-late afternoon post-nap adventure activity. Candidates will typically have Fridays off. The schedule on Saturdays and Sundays will be 7am-12pm (often only until 10am), and the parents would love candidates to be open to babysitting 1-2 evenings per week up to 8 hours total per week (i.e. to bring the total number of hours up to 50 per week) - these evenings will always be scheduled in advance. Between the hours of 12-3pm Monday through Thursday there is a nanny/ house manager who does lunch and nap time with the toddler, so the lunch and planning block can be used to get other things done without also minding her. 

 

Childcare responsibilities will include creating/ organizing enriching and physically and emotionally safe life experiences and activities, meal prep, cooking for the toddler, managing meal times, cleaning up, keeping play areas, the toddler’s bedroom, and toys tidy, doing laundry and organizing the child’s closet, organizing playdates, arts and crafts, pick up and drop off, library programs, extracurricular activities, bedtime/naptime, dressing, potty training, night diaper changing, helping to teach manners, managing and redirecting toddler behaviours, providing positive reinforcement, modelling good behaviours and the family’s values, and generally providing love and care. 

 

Educator responsibilities will include developing and/or implementing a curriculum designed for 3-4 year olds, designing and implementing the educational space, evaluating progress, identifying areas of strength and areas of opportunity, identifying and supporting individual learning styles, communicating with the parents and, if applicable in a pod, other parents. Other responsibilities will include monitoring and tracking supplies, submitting purchase requests, and ordering as required. 


In addition to caregiving/educational responsibilities above, candidates will be required to assist with packing, unpacking, and in-transit activities, setting up sleeping spaces, arranging activities at each destination, and maintaining meals, sleep routines and educational schedules, as appropriate. If candidates are not comfortable designing the curriculum, the family work with an individual who can do this for them, and the candidate will simply have to learn and deliver this to the toddler, with their remote guidance.

 

Candidates should ideally be college educated and experienced caregivers with a background in early childhood/elementary education (or equivalent). A Montessori-based approach is preferred, and candidates should possess a life-long learner mentality, love the outdoors, be warm, kind, adventurous and curious, naturally wanting to engage young minds and energies by developing and/or organizing activities that nurture creative spirits and stimulate a love for learning. Other traits the family are seeking in a candidate would be that they are a well-rounded, discreet, emotionally balanced individual with a plethora of interests and hobbies, being self-aware and and spiritually oriented. It’s imperative that candidates enjoy all kinds of weather, and are comfortable in the water - be that a pool or the ocean/ on a boat. The ideal candidate should enjoy skiing or snowboarding or other winter sport activities, and at least have a willingness to learn new sports. 

 

It’s essential that candidates have an up to date passport and driver’s license. It would be ideal if candidates were fluent in either French, Spanish or Mandarin. Candidates must be comfortable signing an NDA with this family. The family are offering a competitive compensation package, as well as a separate studio suite attached to their main residence with it’s own private entrance in Puerto Rico. If you are interested, with a US passport, Green Card or EAC, please apply to KP495.
