Happy Nest are seeking an experienced early years nanny to join a family of two in Cheadle, Greater Manchester on a part time basis (initially). It will then progress into a more full time role as the year progresses.
You’ll primarily provide care to the 15-month-old toddler whilst the older girl (aged 4 turning 5) is in school at the beginning of the year. And then as the role develops, you will be in charge of the school run in the afternoons and caring for Miss 5 when she comes home from school .

If you love playtime and have lots of fun and interesting activity ideas to keep an inquisitive and active little boy amused then you’ll fit in well with this little family. Together the two of you will enjoy the family’s large outdoor area, using the space to create free range play areas and activities during the day.
This Cheadle nanny role suits an experienced nanny who can manage the careful balance between letting children be a little more independent, whilst also remaining firm, and setting natural boundaries that are appropriate for a toddler. Very Janet Lansbury style!
As you well know, the separation anxiety can be a magnetic force at this age. All those toddler emotions, and the fatigue from literally blowing their minds each day, can mean the need for mum is strong. Poor little things! Therefore you’ll be kind and caring, offering warmth and comfort when needed, but also being flexible to divert back to mum if you feel he needs that extra reassurance.
This is a sole-charge care role, primarily looking after the 15-month-old toddler boy whilst his older sister is at school. However, mum does work from home. So she will be in and out at times and around during the day. Plus you’ll have sole-charge care of both children during the school holidays you’ll have sole charge care of both children.
His routine at this age is very important. So during the day you’ll provide stimulating activities. You’ll offer healthy snacks at lunch. And then settle him down for his lunchtime nap.
It’s ideal if you can be aware of his need to play himself (so as not to interrupt his natural inquisitive process; Montessori style) but also do your best to promote social and emotional development.
This little boy is newly walking. So we hope you’ve got your running shoes on–you might need them! He’s adventurous, and active, and full of energy the way toddler boys do best! He also loves Peppa Pig, and Mr Tumble.
This nanny position does require you to be a driver, with your own car, as you’ll do the morning school drop offs for Miss 4-nearly-5. It’s also essential the successful nanny does not own pets. Sorry, we promise we do love our puppers! We really do. However sadly for Miss 4, she has eczema and even lingering pet hair in the car can aggravate it.
