An experienced teacher/nanny is required for a warm and close-knit family consisting of three daughters aged 6 and 4 years, and 5 months. Based in Knightsbridge, the job on offer comprises five working days including weekends.

The 6 and 4 year old are happy, sociable, friendly, fun-loving children. At her early age, the youngest is demonstrating similar qualities. Both the older sisters who attend full-time school in Chelsea, love being there and enjoy their lessons and sports. Equally, they interact closely with their classmates and friends, who matter to them a lot.

The parents would generally like the applicant to start work from 7am until bedtime. The older children finish at 3pm and 3:45pm/5pm depending on afterschool clubs. The school is a short distance away by walking or car with the family drivers. Regarding holidays working hours would be the same, 5 days a week,12 hours with break in between, unless another arrangement is made with the nanny and parents.

When not at school, focus on the two older children would include:
- Following up homework, as well as schedules for piano, ice skating, horse riding, Arabic lessons and other social activities.
- Enhancing the children’s interests, skills and capabilities by engaging them in areas of knowledge they enjoy, whilst also having a good time.
- Fun activities, could include board games, arts, crafts etc .
- Visiting age-appropriate places of interest, museums etc. in London, as well as theatre and shows if something particularly nice is playing.

The household is attended to by a team of lovely and efficient staff, to whom the children feel closely connected. They take care of the cleaning, laundry, ironing and cooking for the family.

Family travel during holidays and half terms is a regular occurrence, which being away together, both parents and children enjoy hugely. Accommodation for the applicant is available on-site, while completely separate from the family living area.

In conclusion, both parents hope that the candidate will view the option of this position as an opportunity to engage with three happy little girls.

An important goal would include preparing them both directly and indirectly, by giving them the tools required to ready them for the next stage of school after age 11. Considering the fierce academic competition to gain a place at a sought-after school, this task would be essential to build up steadily and consistently for the long term. Being part of a positive, creative and supportive environment would also benefit the littlest sister. Accordingly, she would likely pick up very fast from her older siblings, leading to her own happy and favourable development and abilities.

The family dynamics are based on two very loving and involved parents, Mum is hands-on, and her relationship with her children is one of joy, tender care, a lot of fun and support; their father is a complete softie and “his girls” are the centre of his world. One may ask within this context what the candidate they seek can contribute. Essentially, both parents feel that this lies in the advantageous role of a competent and gifted professional, who can offer their young children, even in their early years, added helpful perspectives for living in an increasingly multidimensional world. Furthermore, a satisfying and amicable working relationship between both parties bodes well for the progress and growth of these three promising young sisters.
