Nanny Job in Pincher Creek, Alberta
We are looking for a nanny for our two toddler boys - age 4 and age 2. A bit about our family: We, Andrea and Jesse, are two middle career scientists and each run our own businesses. We have been and remain disappointed with the Alberta provincial COVID-response and have kept both boys out of daycare since September 2021. We are now running out of steam and need a regular nanny to help care for our boys during the day so we can focus on work. We live about 15 min south of the town of Pincher Creek on a small acreage. The boys love to spend time outside playing and exploring. They also love to read, colour and make collages, and play board games. These activities, and hopefully more, will be regular parts of each day. Our desires and expectations: We are pretty flexible on scheduling but require something regular and predictable. We are thinking a minimum of 4 hours (maximum of 8) between 8am and 5pm, for 3 to 5 days per week Monday thru Friday. This is something for discussion and we are happy to work around schedules for the right applicant as required. We require up-to-date vaccination records for COVID (2 doses plus a booster) and expect any applicant to take the science of COVID and global pandemics seriously. If you are living like it is 2019, this is not the job for you. We may at times require COVID testing (we would provide the test). The applicant will have their own transportation. If "field trips" occur, we would require a current driver's abstract and proof of current driver's licence and current vehicle insurance and registration. To begin with, however, no “field trips” until we get to know one another better. We hope applicants have a background in early childhood development / education. Regardless, all applicants should have previous and demonstrable experience in daycares, day homes, or other childcare settings. References are required and will be checked. The successful applicant will hang out with and actively engage with the boys, help guide decision-making, assist in mediating toddler interactions, and prepare snacks and lunch (we will provide food). Because the boys spend so much time outside it is preferable for applicants to also have a lot of outdoor experience, especially knowledge about being around black and grizzly bears. Andrea is a bear biologist so can help infill knowledge gaps. Details: Starting date asap. We are planning to send Miles to preschool this coming fall, which is a half day 2 days per week so the position may transition a bit in the fall from 2 boys to 1 some days. The website requires us to enter an amount, but the pay is negotiable and will depend on your past experience and how many boys are in your care. We expect childcare to occur here at our home. We both work from home so are readily available in case of an emergency. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing further.
Responsibilities will include:
