The family is looking for a Nanny who is proactive and motivated as their eldest daughter is currently going through a stage of severe separation anxiety however Mum is actively putting things in place to make this better including a therapist however the nanny needs to be patient and emotionally supportive with this. The ideal Nanny would be very easygoing and be happy to dance around, sing and have fun!
The family is based in Kensington (SW7) so there is an abundance of local activities, and groups within walking distance. The Nanny will be responsible for planning days out, and be pro-active in making plans especially within the school holidays, as their eldest daughter does attend pre-school 35 weeks of the year, so the Nanny will pick her up, bring her home and cook her dinner as well as getting her ready for pre-school, helping with breakfast and packing her bag ready for the day ahead.

It would be preferable if the Nanny can speak fluent Spanish, as their eldest daughter can speak it fluently (their previous Nanny taught her) so they would like to keep up this language skill, however not essential.
Travel will be needed, a couple of short trips throughout the year and 2-3 weeks in the Summer.
It is essential for this role that the Nanny has 5/6 years of experience within childcare, but this role is open to Nannies who have come from a nursery/ pre-school background too, as long as they are confident with sole charge.
