Family First is honored to assist a family located in the Cotswold area of Charlotte, North Carolina, in finding a long term, professional nanny for their two children, ages 4 years and 2 years. They have one cuddly dog as well. 

The start date is February 5. Care is needed 8:15am-5:30pm Monday through Friday, with some flexibility desired for over nights and date nights. They are offering $25-$30 per hour and guaranteed hours for a nanny that is interested in a long term, multi-year position. They are looking for someone who wants to grow with and become an integral part of the family. Mom works from home in a separate office and dad works out of the home. They have a give and take with childcare responsibilities with their current nanny, and would like the same relationship to continue. They are looking for a nanny who is both proactive and patient, loves to play with children at their unique developmental levels, is a planner and has great time management, and who has experience caring for two young children. 

Their two-year old is active and on the go while also loving and caring. He loves to sing, play and be silly with his older sister. He is in preschool for 3 hrs/day 2 days/week. Their four-year old loves imaginary play, making people laugh, and has a great sense of humor. She is in part-time preschool 4 days/week. As a family, they enjoy doing anything outdoors and remain as active as possible. They are loving, warm, accepting, and kind, and are looking for a nanny to become an extended family member. 

Big Little Feelings and Gentle Parenting are the childcare philosophies most utilized in their home. Someone who is experienced or willing to read up on those methods would be ideal. Mom and dad would really like to see their kids form a strong bond and connection with their nanny. 

If you are a nanny that brings positive, energetic, cheerful energy to work each day, we would love for you to apply!
