A little bit about us…Hello all! Our family is looking for a part-time nanny, three days a week, to care for our daughter when my wife returns to work in January. Our little one will be 7 months old at that time. The days we need care are Mon-Weds, and the hours are 9:30 am - 4:00pm on Mon/Tues and 9:00am-5:30pm on Wednesday.



We are also open to a nanny share!



The ideal candidate is:

Trustworthy, loving and engaging
Has infant care experience
Is fully vaccinated for COVID and is COVID safe in their personal life. Must show proof of vaccination prior to hire
Is up to date on all other vaccinations
Fluent in English, but Spanish speakers are welcomed as we'd love to expose baby to Spanish!
CPR/first-aid certified


Duties will include:

Feeding, playtime, stroller walks/outdoor adventures, putting baby down for her naps, tidying up after baby, including washing her bottles/dishes and picking up her toys
No other household chores required, aside from the occasional load of baby's laundry


A little about our home:

My wife works from home Monday and Tuesday, so will need support while she is in meetings, or out running errands for the household. My wife also works in the office on Wednesdays, so nanny and baby will have the home to themselves
We live in a small condo, so we're looking for a candidate that can form a strong relationship and partnership with my wife, too!
We have a sweet miniature dachshund, so our candidate must love dogs, too.


References are required. If you think you'd be the right fit, we'd love to connect with you! Please send me a DM with your interest and your hourly rate.
