NANNY TUTOR POSITION - *** EXPERIENCED and QUALIFIED CANDIDATES ONLY ***
About the Family
Engaged, Energetic, and Intellectual Canadian family seeks Roamschool Educator/Caregiver for a once in a lifetime two-year trip around the world with their 5- year old twin boys!
This family has embarked on worldwide adventure since December 2021 aboard a luxury residential cruise ship called The World. They are searching for a dynamic and capable educator/caregiver to engage their boys academically, emotionally, socially, and recreationally during this 12-18 month journey.
Mom and dad are practical and down to earth people who value transparent communication, positive energy, flexibility, commitment initiative and seek a person who will foster a natural and loving bond with their twins and help them make the very most of this adventure.
As a family who values experience over material goods, they desire to instil an appreciation of global culture through extensive travel in their young boys, while also preparing them to enter a traditional land-based elementary school experience at age 6.
The family is from Perth, Australia.
The position will officially begin ASAP. After visio interviews, if you are shortlisted, a trial will be organized at the family's home, of course this trial will cover all expenses, including travel.
A genuine delight in preschoolers and their developing minds is an absolute must. Beyond that, the family seeks a natural, creative educator/caregiver who is flexible and easy-going, yet reliable and prepared; a self-starter, who can plan fun activities independently; a warm and kind disposition, but well-practiced at setting and maintaining firm boundaries; a comfortable, self-reliant traveler with common sense.
The ability to research ports of call ahead of time and create thoughtful, efficient, and organized travel maps and itineraries around the best museums, parks, cultural activities, and events available at each destination is a huge plus.
Someone with a creative streak and ideas for documenting this family adventure for and with the boys would be ideal. Because of the unique nature of this opportunity, the ideal candidate we are looking for will have to be comfortable with idea of being offshore, not being seasick will equally be really important.
This position is both luxurious and demanding. The amenities on this fully residential cruise ship are unparalleled and largely available to the educator/caregiver and the ports of call and activities are exceptional in opportunity and scope; however, a life of continuous travel far from home can be stressful; a flexible service mindset and ability to be happy far from home is critical.

- on-board gym membership (including personal training)
- economy flights and time off each year for trips home/elsewhere
- as well as an amazing travel experience in a loving family environment.
Package : The Educator Nanny will be provided a private studio apartment while working on the ship.

The ship also has a full range of recreational amenities and eating options available.
Hours/Schedule: The schedule is variable and sometimes unpredictable, but 50-60 hours a week is typical, depending on ports and parents’ work and social obligations. Hours include a mix of “full charge”, “shared charge”, and “passive charge” hours, meaning time where the boys are fully the educator/caregiver’s responsibility, time where the educator/caregiver accompanies a parent in caring for the boys (often on shore excursions), and time when the boys are sleeping and just need passive supervision.
Bi-weekly meetings to discuss the upcoming 2-week schedule are important. The flexibility to deal with last minute changes is essential as travel conditions change and new opportunities arise at a moment’s notice with this type of round the world travel. Please note there will also be two 6-week land periods in May ‘22 and August ‘23 when the boat is in service. The family will choose a land destination and continue explorations with the Nanny /educator on land during those periods.
