Calling all wannabe Disney Princesses! A family in the United Kingdom (the actual place, not the Epcot Pavilion) is looking to hire a part time nanny for their 5-year-old twin girls, and they have one special requirement. The nanny will need to come to work in character, as a Disney Princess. Insider first reported on this story about a family in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire looking to bring a little Disney magic into their home.
If you’ve spent any time around children who love princesses, than you know that nothing could be more magical for a young child than to have their favorite princess spend time with them all day long. While only a handful of people will ever actually be princesses, Disney Princesses are strong women children aspire to become. In addition to being relatable, Disney Princesses serve as role models, encouraging kids to be kind, compassionate, and brave.
And that is exactly what the British couple is hoping to find in a nanny. The family posted an ad on Childcare.co.uk seeking a nanny to come to their residence as a princess such as Tiana, Anna, Belle, and Cinderella. They are willing to pay around £40,000 ($53,000) a year for this part-time position, and would even cover the cost of costumes!
Here’s what they are asking:
"Like most 5-year-olds, our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values. We know this isn't a normal request for nannies, however we think it would be a great way to teach our girls about things like determination, compassion, fearlessness, and ambition from strong yet relatable female role models like Princess Tiana, Princess Anna, Belle, and Cinderella.
We are looking for someone who can commit to a character and create a really fun atmosphere in our home, but also won't be afraid to be a disciplinarian if the twins are naughty or act out — they can be little terrors at times! The right person will have a real creative flare as well as a passion for all things Disney and will be able to share that love of those characters with our girls.
The role will involve picking the twins up from school four days a week, organizing Disney-related activities such as arts and crafts, baking, singing, cooking dinner, and sometimes putting them to bed.
We think it's a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girls' lives! So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there who'd be able to help us out, please get in touch."
Of course the idea of a Disney Princess nanny sounds great, but we have to wonder why they didn’t consider Mary Poppins instead? She’s practically perfect in every way!
