We are looking for a rock-star GEM of a Nanny who is ABA certified or has relatable experience (i.e. a psych degree or special certification) to work with an almost 12-year old high-functioning six grader with some special needs. This position works 12pm to 8pm. The earlier hours are used for admin. work such as finding cool camps, setting up playdates, running errands and etc … — and then you’re with the child from 3:30pm/4pm ish onwards. Some days you may not be needed until school is out, but you will always be paid with a 40-hour a week guarantee. Exposure to ADHD, dyslexia and anxiety are a must. You will be replacing a Nanny who has been with the family for close to four years, leaving HUGE shoes to fill. There’s a good deal of medication management so familiarity with pharm. is necessary as well. We are looking for a Nanny with a super high EQ who can handle a lovely but challenging child who is on the spectrum. Mom and Dad prefer to talk her through periods of dis-regulation versus bending to her will and while they (and their long-time Nanny) will gladly take lots of time to train the new hire — they prefer to find someone who can hit the ground running and will know what to do. There’s also a social component to the position. This is a child who doesn’t easily make friends so applicants should be comfortable inserting themselves with the school and neighborhood Moms in order to facilitate playdates. This is a fully staffed home in Brentwood and pay is on the books, DOE. There’s a fish and three dogs in the house, so hopefully you are pet friendly. This position will likely start in December or January. Please reach out ONLY if you meet the minimum requirements which are experience with this age children, special needs exposure, ABA certification or psych degree, pet friendly and comfortable with both childcare and assisting. This is a FABULOUS opportunity!
