Experienced Bilingual RIE Nanny wanted
A family in the Los Feliz/Silverlake area is looking for a bilingual, RIE-inspired nanny. This is a full-time (40 hours/week), live-out position, caring for two boys, ages 3 and 1.
A bit about what we're looking for: a nanny who is kind, gentle, and who respects children as individuals. We'd like someone who is confident and consistent, but also easygoing, warm, and playful. We draw inspiration from RIE method, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia, but we aren't attached to any specific method as long as the care is wonderful and respectful. We are seeking a nanny who speaks either Mandarin, Spanish, or French.
Our nanny must be able to travel with the family. Once or twice a year, we take an extended trip for work (ranging from 6 weeks to 3 months), and we also frequently take shorter trips.
A bit about us: our kids are imaginative, musical, and gentle. Our three year old loves to ask questions about how the world works ("Is the earth moving? Where would we live if we didn't live on the earth? What would happen if we had no bones? Did gravity take the ball down?" etc.), and we like to engage him and talk through the answers to these kinds of questions in a thoughtful and attentive way.
In our home, we eat healthy meals (fresh organic food, no sugar). We don't watch tv or look at phone screens. We like to engage in creative activities, both indoors and outdoors!
We are offering $25-35/hr (dependent upon experience and education), plus premium health benefits.
