This lovely, friendly family in Los Gatos is looking to hire a Nanny/Family assistant.
Their current nanny of 11 years is going to a nursing school. Main duties are to provide care for their 11 year old daughter. The girl is passionate about horses and enjoys art. She's neurodivergent (ADHD, Dyslexic, on the autism spectrum and has clinical level anxiety) so struggles socially and gets frustrated easily. She's clever and can be a lot of fun when she's feeling calm. The girl is home schooled in the morning. The Family Assistant will be driving her to Horse riding lessons daily, running errands, washing dishes, prepare meals for the child and assisting with her laundry and shopping for her.
Skills: communication, flexible mindset, experience with dealing with older children who are neurodivergent and/or has a lot of empathy and doesn't take things personally when the girl is being difficult and struggling with change or social interactions.
“I would like to thank the whole team at SPN for all you guys do.

"I would rate Stanford Park Nannies very highly! They provide a great flow of very qualified candidates, who are all prepared to pay taxes. They have a great vetting process and did not waste our time with those that weren’t a fit. In addition to our full-time search, they had the ability to quickly identify relevant interim/temp nannies as well!"
"SPN is a powerhouse agency of incredible women who embody experience, passion, and a heart for service!"
"SPN provides you with a current understanding of what should be expected of nannies and employers and they empower you by coaching you through it all. When I started to interview with families, they gave me great feedback—it felt like I had my own personal interviewing cheerleaders!"
