Who we are: We are a young-ish professional couple looking for a kind and reliable full time nanny for our two children; a three year old girl and a two year old boy. We also have two cats, Darwin and Finch. We are easy to get along with.
Location(s): Would you like to spend summer at the lake? We live in Winnipeg during the months of November to May, and at a research station (IISD Experimental Lakes Area, iisd...../ela) near Kenora, Ontario through the summer and early autumn period. The station is situated between two beautiful lakes, has nice accommodations, with lots of opportunities for hiking, swimming, canoeing, volley ball, and camping. Transportation is available (free of charge) to travel back and forth to Winnipeg on the weekends (if desired). Housing is provided free of charge at the field station and is negotiable (i.e., live-in) at our house in Winnipeg. We are happy to answer any questions you might have.
What we need: A reliable nanny with experience caring for children, preferably toddlers. We prefer someone in the 18-26 age range to fit in the social atmosphere at the research station, which employs several undergraduate students each summer. Experience or education in early childhood education considered an asset. The work hours are generally from 8:00a to 5:00p, Monday through Friday with some flexibility. We provide a one week paid vacation and all statutory holidays off as well as contribute to the nannys Employment Insurance and Canadian Pension Plan. The position would be especially great for someone who enjoys the outdoors.
