Nanny Job in Toronto, Ontario

Our family is looking for a dedicated, passionate and experienced nanny in Toronto. Part time to full time (2 to 4 days per week). We have two daughters, aged 6 years and 20 months. Most of the time would be spent with the toddler.
Please consider the following before responding!

Ideally, you are:
* experienced, with at least a few years working with toddlers
*playful, loving, energetic, enthusiastic, an excellent communicator
*PATIENT
*have a positive attitude and uplifting personality
*have an understanding of peaceful/positive parenting and can implement these practices
*able to bring CALM to the chaos.
*gentle and respectful touch
*able to engage, interact and communicate with our girls in a positive and respectful manner.
*able to reinforce limitations without yelling, coercion, threats, force, bribes or consequences.
*you have a genuine love for children, and have 'a way' for making them feel seen, heard and respected.
*a confident role model and can demonstrate a high level of social awareness and responsibility towards self and others.
* able to redirect undesirable behaviour using empathy, humor and other peaceful approaches.
* able to avoid or at least limit the use of the word 'No', while instead providing information and guidance to help shape their understanding and guide their choices.
* able to support their independence by encouraging them to do things for themselves, providing training and assistance when necessary.
* able to move at the child's pace, and let them explore and navigate their world in curious and safe ways.
* someone who doesn't mind some light tidying or cleaning, light meal prep, diaper changes/potty training.
* able to confidently travel with toddler on TTC to play at drop-in center or attend special activities. Walk to the park, library, pick up or drop off older daughter at school. Supervise playtime at the park.
*someone who loves books and reading, and is able to help promote literacy through singing, reading and a constant open dialogue.
*looking to make a genuine connection with the kids.
* willing and able to work through challenges that arise.
*someone who strongly values honest communication.
* someone who is comfortable with all emotions and can help support their growth and development of emotional intelligence.
We are certainly not perfect in all these areas and do not expect you to be either! We strive to maintain a growth mindset and always hold ourselves accountable. Most importantly, is that we continue to strive towards these high standards because we believe all kids are worth it!!

Spending time in nature is so valuable for us and we enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors- bike riding, visiting the island, walking along the Harbourfront and visiting the Music Garden, visiting High Park or any park with greenery or trees to climb and natural spaces to explore.
We love to play games- card games, board games, Wii.
We limit screen use to the weekend only because it can easily get out of control!
We usually have some extracurricular activities planned throughout the year but we limit these so as not to overload their schedules or create unnecessary stress. Having downtime and getting bored can be incredibly valuable as well!
We love to go swimming at the JCC in their saltwater pool :) or sometimes we go trampoline jumping on the weekends.
We love listening to music, dancing and attending performances around our neighborhood and city.
Anything hands on and sensorial is usually a big hit.

Schedule will likely start off as 2 days/week, going up to 4 days/ week. Hours may include morning, afternoon or evening shifts and may require some flexibility on your end, however, ideally we would keep very consistent and predictable hours.

If you think we may be a good fit, please feel free to reach out with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
