Full time nanny/housekeeper for family of young boys in Chorley , Lancashire

Happy Nest are seeking an early years nanny to provide sole-charge care for two young boys. Dad is a single parent working full time but mainly from home so he is around for additional support if required, you’ll be providing nanny care for two boys aged 4.5 years and 18 months.

With a new walker, and a 4.5 year old on your hands, you’ll no doubt be busy! But don’t stress too much, your inner calm will keep things running smoothly throughout the day. It’ll also ensure you juggle everything thrown at you. So long as it’s not the discarded peas from Mr 18-months’ dinner plate!

You’ll be well positioned for this role if you’ve got several years experience as a nanny caring for pre-school aged children in the family home.

Which means you’ll be familiar with juggling two different ages, at very different stages of their exploration and development. And you’ll also be independent minded, needing very little direction.

A driver is a requirement for this role, as you’ll need to drop Mr 4.5 at school and in the morning and collect him in the afternoon. It’s also advantageous as dad would like a nanny who can keep the younger boy busy with fun classes and planned activities.

Hours:
– 7am to 7pm . The role is Monday to Friday but there could be some weekends required but then you would have the days off the following week. The children often stay with mum so there is time to accommodate this so flexibility is a requirement of the role.

Nanny Duties:

• Morning and afternoon school runs
• Meal preparation, including healthy snacks
• Support with homework, reading, and writing
• Taking the eldest to after school activities
• Taking the youngest to playgroups and classes

From the get-go each morning; you’ll be busy with the breakfast routine first thing. There’ll be Weetabix to clean from the floor, and snacks to arrange for the day.

You’ll then drop the eldest at school, before exploring the world with Mr 18-months alongside. He is a very happy little boy , very chilled and very talkative. Everything is new to him at this stage of life, so remember to slow down a little, and let him appreciate the birds in the sky and the flowers along the footpaths and run off some steam when he needs to.

Do you consider yourself something of a Masterchef? You’ll truly standout in this role if you’re a good cook for this loving family of three.

Which really just means that you can prepare nutritious and healthy meals for little people from scratch using fresh ingredients. Whilst you’re at it, if you can do your best to smuggle in as many veggies as possible, then this role is perfect for you.

Keeping your Masterchef hat firmly on, you’ll need to be good at sourcing new recipes for them to try and planning the online food shop.

We know that with an 18-month-old about to launch himself into full on wreck-it-ralph mode as he becomes more and more active , it might prove tricky to keep the house in tip top shape, so the expectation of the housekeeping role is to keep on top of things like the family laundry , keep the house clean and tidy when the youngest takes a nap.

Once the afternoons roll around (which happens quickly when you’ve got a little one having sleeps), you’ll collect Mr 4-almost-5 from school. He loves the outdoors and playing on the climbing frame in the garden, slowing down a little as the cooler days bring you inside earlier, he also enjoys reading books, and dabbles in a little old school Pac man on his Nintendo.

As an experienced nanny, you’ll be able to help with homework. He is a clever boy and very perceptive. Most importantly, you’ll be familiar with the various techniques to encourage and support school aged children as they learn to read and write.

Do you pride yourself on tapping into your emotional intelligence to anticipate dad’s needs and to understand what needs to be done?

Are you ready to hit the ground running each morning as you walk through the door, usually being met with half-dressed little people and a dad who’s trying to keep the toddler’s breakfast-covered fingers from staining his work clothes?

Can you keep a daily log of the happenings, should the daily handover gets cut short? This role is perfect for you .

Dad is open to a live in our a live out nanny. The accommodation comprises of a large double bedroom with an ensuite if the live-in option is taken.

Once settled into the role there is opportunity to travel with the family as their nanny and occasional proxy parenting. There will be additional renumeration for this.

You will also need to be an animal lover as the family have a much loved Labrador cross.
