A little bit about us…

Looking for a nanny who can join our family 7:00am-12:30pm Monday-Friday in Des Plaines. We have a 4 year old son who will be in daycare in the afternoon--we will look for a loving provider who will spend the morning with him then drop him off at his afternoon program nearby. He is a sweet and kind boy who loves to read, is nuts about dinosaurs, and is eager to play outside.

We have one dog at home (a 50 pound black lab mix) for which care by the nanny would be minimal, but for whom occasional pets and an open door to go outside would be most appreciated by her. :)

Need someone who is willing/able to commit to this job and schedule until at least August of next year. Additional hours may be available (but not required) over the summer.

Thanks in advance for considering! :)
