Job #095 Professional Nanny sought by Toronto Family

Nanny for Toronto Family • Full-time • Forest Hill


A professional Nanny is sought by an established family in downtown Toronto. This excellent opportunity is full-time and involves travel. This is not a Housekeeper / Nanny position. It is more along lines of a traditional Nanny who is focused on the well-being and education of a young school-aged child. The parents are very involved in their child' life and the successful applicant will be in regular communication with them. 


The position is 3pm to 8pm, 5 days per week, however, hours will vary during holiday periods. When the parents are travelling, the nanny will be asked to perform live-in proxy parenting. The family has residences in Canada and abroad and the Nanny will travel with the family. The ideal candidate should be CPR certified (or willing to be) and willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) as well as successfully completing a criminal background check.

The job will vary depending on whether it’s in school term or during vacation as the Nanny would have sole charge duties when the parents travel and when the daughter is off school. 

PLEASE NOTE: The position is only open to individuals who hold current status to legally work in Canada. Sponsorship will not be considered.
