Nurturing and Engaging Nanny Needed for Two Sweet Boys in the East Village, NYC
East Village, NYC
A loving family in East Village, NYC, is looking for a developmentally focused nanny for their two sons, ages 4 and 2-year-old. A nanny who has a background or exposure to the RIE philosophy would excel in this role. The oldest child has autism, and he is described to be shy and sweet.

The candidate must also be mindful of allergies; the youngest is allergic to peanuts.
The ideal candidate for this position is loving. The oldest child is categorized as gifted, so he’ll excel in mathematics and reading. But sensory experience and social anxiety are difficulties that are present that are balanced out with nurturing.

Feedback with the parents about any concerns with the kids is mandatory. Someone who is organized, patient, and a self-starter and knows how to troubleshoot issues on their own. A background in early childhood education is always great.
