Parents to a super social 5-year-old looking for support after school roughly 15-20 hours/wk. We'd like the nanny to support with pick-up from school, entertaining the child via story-time, age-appropriate learning games/toys or outdoor play, and offering the provided after-school snack. We need the nanny from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Tuesdays - Thursdays and 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm on Fridays. We are looking for a nanny that will treat our child as if he/she was their own. We want someone that is patient and kind in demeanor and communication and enjoys being around an inquisitive, energetic child. Bonus points if the nanny speaks French or Haitian Creole and if you're comfortable driving. Our ideal family are people that are genuine, honest, and down-to-earth. Additionally, we are looking for a family that believes in the benefit of building a diverse community for their family/themselves. Social bonus point if you enjoy playing tennis, basketball, and/or some connection to the east coast.
