A little bit about us…Hello! We are looking for a loving nanny to be with our two children starting this November when I return to work. Our son just turned 3 and our daughter is two months old.
Before Covid, my son was part of a nature based toddler program that was a wonderful fit. We loved that he was outdoors everyday with a really loving caretaker and 1-2 other toddler friends. They had the best life!
While finding care for our kids is our first priority, we’d also be interested in exploring an arrangement with another family so our son could be joined by a similar aged playmate, perhaps just for one or part of the days. This is all TBD based on the comfort level of the caretaker (3 is a lot!) and the ability to find an interested family.
We are still learning and growing as parents but aim for a peaceful parenting approach based on positive connection and communication. We mostly try to use natural consequences for discipline.
Our son is very verbal, focused, sweet, observant and curious. He loves to read books, all things construction, magnet tiles and Duplo. He can get very immersed in his indoor activities but is also content once you get him outside to climb trees and run. Our daughter continues to wake up to the world and is easy going and delightful.
We are conscientious about limiting our risks during covid and would like for you to do the same. We are fortunate to be working from home through at least the end of this year. I will have calls (so many calls!) and at times I’m sure this won’t work out perfectly, but hope to continue nursing and being available to my baby as much as possible throughout the day. Let’s be in good communication so the arrangement feels supportive and respectful for all of us; I understand that working while both parents are home is an unusual arrangement.
Ideally we’d find someone who sees this as a long term commitment, especially since you’ll be developing a relationship with our kids at such critical early years.
