Boutique Nanny, Governess and Tutor agency!

A lovely family residing in Lyon, France is seeking a temporary nanny for 1-3 months (to be confirmed prior to the contract starting) during June, July and August for the care and education of their son aged 4 years. The boy is bilingual in French and English and had a long-term nanny from the USA. The role is to support him through fun and educational age-appropriate activities during the summer months. The family takes a Montessori approach to his learning, therefore a qualified Montessori candidate or someone with good knowledge of the approach would be advantageous. The nanny should be kind, patient and nurturing in her approach to him. He has found school to be challenging with being separated from his home environment. Therefore, being mindful of his emotions is a necessity. He loves to read and be read to and adores fact finding, arts and crafts, baking and making all activities into a game. A creative person with great imagination would be a well-suited candidate. The family would like him to continue his learning in English, therefore, fluency in English is a requirement of the role. During this period the nanny might also need to care for his stepbrother aged 8 and two stepsisters aged 12 and 14 for a couple of weeks when they come to stay. However, they are quite independent, and the focus will remain on the 4-year-old boy. Whilst in France, you will be provided your own studio apartment. If you travel with the family, possibly to Italy and Spain for two weeks at a time, separate accommodation, or a separate room in the hotel with the family will be provided for you.

The family is ready to start interviewing candidates immediately. The working hours will be up to 50 per week, over 6 days. A day off will be agreed weekly and may not necessarily be on the weekend. The salary on offer is 800-1100€ net per week. Apply now.
