A little bit about us…

Hi!

We have a newborn child (boy, 3 weeks old) and would like help with:

Housekeeping - standard cleaning, tidying, organization, dishes, trash take out

Laundry - Once per week, folded and put away

Occasional light meals & grocery runs - this is not required but is a definite plus. The grocery store is right down the street and meals could be made in bulk to last a few days if this service could be provided.

Possible occasional running of errands

Occasional childcare (feeding, diaper changing, etc). We are still working out our new schedule and may want this person to cover some “night nurse/nanny” shifts in the future.

We are still adjusting to becoming new parents! We are open to your recommendations in creating our new schedule as well and look forward to speaking with an experienced nanny housekeeper.

Thanks!

A little bit about us…

We are 2 Montclair families who live a 10 min walk apart seeking a full-time nanny share to be hosted at one home. We both live on Fairlane Drive in the Glen Highlands area of Montclair (just off of highways 13 + 24). Our two little ones will be 5 months and 11 months when we need care in the beginning of October, but can be flexible for the right fit.

We are seeking a high-energy nanny who can stimulate our babies, care for them lovingly, and provide some structure / routine to their days. We'd also like to talk about options for additional help with food prep and/or laundry (for example).
