Nanny Position – Arlington,VA

Children: 2-year-old boy and 1-month-old girl.  Boy, attends a Montessori school in D.C. from 9:00 am-3:00 pm on weekdays. He is very active and loves books and music. THey keep screen time to a minimum and outside time to the max. He is very verbal and will tell you all about lawn equipment and the flowers in the neighborhood. He’s a good eater overall, loves fish, pasta and veggies, and actually likes trying new foods. The infant daughter is four weeks old. She’s very alert and has trouble sleeping in noisy situations. The mother and father are working on getting her onto a regular schedule. She is exclusively breastmilk fed.

The family hopes you like dogs, they have two three-year-old Labradoodles. They understand basic commands and still have a lot of puppy energy. They generally get three walks a day, and they usually have someone come to take them out in the middle of the day. There is a fenced-in backyard where they can be let out throughout the day if they need to go out.

The central responsibility of this role will be the care of our infant daughter during the day, care for our 2-year-old son in the afternoon when he returns from school, help with meal preparation for the children, and handoff for nighttime routine. As far as the children go, the principals are sticklers for safety and view these early years as a sensitive period for them to learn good habits. They are also very focused on the children’s learning (note: they consider this to be distinct, but complementary to their education).  Since they are both pre-pre-school age, the principals  view this as mainly curating experiences in and outside of the house that stimulates their curiosity and inspires them to follow their interests. They take an evidence-based approach to parenting in regards to their health and development. In addition, the principals follow the principles of the RIE method and Montessori.

Priorities for our children:

  • Model and instill respect for self and all others, nurture kindness and empathy
  • Support their growth and meeting developmental milestones
  • Encourage curiosity and learning through exploration of questions small and large
  • Engage in the nature and community around us.

Proposed daily schedule:

We’d like to have you on a regular schedule that allows us all to plan accordingly, perhaps 8am-6pm Monday-Friday with some additional hours, especially in the evenings.

Please contact the agency and we will be happy to talk more about the position.
