Postion HIGHBURY N5: Sole charge, Daily Nanny (B5, G2.5 & G10 mths)
Location HIGHBURY N5: end Aug/early Sept start (driver useful, not essential)

Clients of ours in  Highbury, London N5 are seeking a Daily Nanny to care for their 3 children; B5 years (at school), G2.5 (at nursery) and baby girl 10 months.   An educationally focused, playful and loving nanny!  Our clients are academic professionals so this will be a sole charge appointment, commencing at the end of the summer (end Aug/early Sept).

Permanent, full-time, sole charge, Daily Nanny working 7:45am - 6.30pm (with occasional flexibility/babysitting). 

The candidate must be highly confident with Early Years; have an excellent knowledge of developmental milestones (as an academic, our client is interested to learn from the Nanny and interested in their knowledge) especially in Child Developmental Psychology. The children go to school in Hampstead and the parents are happy for the nanny to take public transport for the school/nursery runs (usually just the after-school pickups as mother likes to do the morning school-runs wherever possible).  

The elder two children are inquisitive and outgoing, so someone engaging with varied activities (sports, creative crafts, theatre, role play etc). And the baby girl who will be 10 months at the start and has an excellent routine in place, she is a very content easy-going baby who is in a great routine.   Literacy is very important in the family (parents being Academics), and the children are avid book-worms, so a Nanny who will nurture and continue to encourage this is highly desirable.  But the parents don't want the children to be over-stimulated or have too many activities; quality over quantity is preferred - a candidate who is mindful of the needs of the children.

A good cook to produce fresh, healthy meals, noting that the elder daughter has food allergies so a candidate who is very conscious of special dietary requirements and attentive and epi-pen training is highly desirable, but the allergies are very manageable. The children love being involved in helping in the kitchen!

This is a relaxed, informal household, with no pets and a cleaner who comes twice a week.  English/French is spoken at home and the family home backs onto green space (Gillespie Park) with lots of fantastic local amenities. Therefore the family do not require a driver, but if the nanny drives it would be helpful for school/nursery runs. Our clients are open in nationality and age; as long as the candidate speaks fluent English. 

There is some travel as the family have a chalet in the French Alps and would love the Nanny to travel with them.

Daily appointment and the clients are very close to Arsenal tube (Piccadilly line). To start late August/early September, interviews are taking place now.  So do call the agency for more details: 0207 610 9218.   Or email us info@nanniesofstjames.com
