This large, bustling family and team values community and kindness above all else in their home. They love spending as much time outdoors as possible, especially going on excursions and camping. Their 5-year-old is in kindergarten and their 2-year-old will be in preschool. They look forward to welcoming a team-oriented and adventurous private educator to guide their children through the next school year!

This position is ideal for a candidate who has an adventurous spirit and loves the outdoors just as much as the family does. They would love to find an educator with outdoor education experience who can incorporate field trips and earth education into the children’s curriculum. Experience working with preschool and kindergarten-aged students is key, as well as a deep sense of awareness and empathy in an educational approach. Developing lesson plans and collaborating with parents and the nannies also working in the household to ensure educational milestones are being met will be at the heart of this role. A candidate who would enjoy assisting with general childcare while emphasizing educational opportunities (such as encouraging the children to wash hands, help with making lunch, and tidying up) will be valued in this position.

This is a full-time, live-out position guaranteeing 40 hours/week, and the family is happy to discuss an ideal schedule that works best for all parties. They are offering $35-$40/hour in addition to benefits including biannual discretionary bonuses, health, dental, and vision insurance, PTO, and matching 401k contributions. The family looks forward to bringing their private educator in for the 2020-2021 school year!


This position is open to all Adventure Nannies candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license and passport. This family is happy to consider relocation candidates for this position.
