Nanny Job in Ottawa, Ontario
My name is Jean-Francois.
I’m a executive and separated father of three bilingual boys (10, 10 and 6) located in the Glebe, but who go to school in a public Waldorf school in Vanier. They are with me half the time. Our family is looking for support in the evenings, Monday to Thursday (or at least three of these days), from approximately 4PM to 6:30PM (i.e. about 10 hours every other week).
o Preparing a snack and initial meal prep for dinner (4 to 4:30)
o Picking the boys at school (involves driving back and forth to Vanier – 4:30 to 5:00)
o Finish meal prep, eat together, help with cleanup (5:00 to 5:45PM)
o Play with the boys/bond inside or outside (5:45 o 6:30PM)
In some cases, some meal planning and light grocery shopping would be expected. The person will be an important part of our family – the boys often talk of Jacob and Kayla which previously did this.
The ideal candidate:
- Loves interacting with boys and can meet them where their interest lies (videogames such as Minecraft or Fortnite or Roblox, anime such as One Piece, physical play, moving outside)
- Likes cooking and has initiative for thinking of new potential meals that would be appreciated by all family members
- Can discuss new things with them and give them different perspectives – e.g. whatever they studied at University
- Has lots of energy
- Is patient and has an attachment-focused approach rather than a disciplinarian approach
I am fairly flexible on schedule since this service mainly aim at reducing stress within the family and at increasing the quality of the time we spend together. I generally pay between $20-$25 per hour.
