Looking for a summer nanny for a four year old


Family in Toronto

Hello! We are looking for an excellent summer nanny for our four year old son, with the possibility of continuing into the fall for after-school/early evening care if all goes well. The timing would be mid-June -- August/early September, and the hours would likely be flexible, and approximately 3/4 time (this is all negotiable, however). It is really important to us to find a good fit with our parenting style, which could loosely be described as "attachment" parenting (although I don't like labels!). Our son is currently at the Waldorf Academy in Toronto, and it would be great but not essential to find someone with an interest or knowledge of Waldorf style early years education. We never use time-outs or other "love-withdrawal" type discipline methods, and it would be important that our nanny not use those either. Our son also has limited media exposure (i.e. no TV, movies etc.), and we try to maintain a calm, rhythmic pattern to his days, without a huge number of scheduled activities. He is a really sweet kid: very expressive, curious and energetic. He loves transportation of all kinds, one of his favourite activities is just riding the TTC! We are looking for someone who would enjoy going on outings with him to explore all that our city has to offer in the summer. Finally, he is also peanut allergic, so it is essential that you are comfortable with an epi-pen and the extra responsibility of being super-cautious with food. It would be extra amazing if you speak French or German! Hope to hear from you soon!
