Hello! We are a growing family (#2 coming October!) and we are looking to find a part-time nanny who can help us with our household and our 5-year old while we make time for the little one.

Mornings and evenings tend to have the most to do as our kiddo has very full days both in the summer and the school-year, but we can get creative about when those things can get done.

We are looking to fill about 20 hours per week.

Pick-ups, drop-offs, meal preparation, house clean-up and quality time with the 5-year old are all part of the package.

Thanks!
Chris
