A little bit about us…

I'm the Chief Operating Officer of a tech company with a flexible but busy work schedule. I have two delightful children: Sophie, aged 2, and Michael, aged 5. Michael has begun his Kindergarten journey this year, spending half of his day at school, while Sophie enjoys her time at home with our experienced and dedicated nanny, Nelia. Occasionally, our nanny also provides care during weekends. She also speaks Russian and Ukrainian languages.

Our kids are incredibly friendly, and love meeting and interacting with new playmates. Hence, we are inviting families who would be interested in a nanny-sharing arrangement at our spacious and welcoming family house located in the beautiful neighborhood of West Menlo Park.

What sets our Nanny, Nelia apart is her prior rich experience as an elementary school teacher. This role equipped her with solid expertise in early learning and child development. With flexibility in scheduling, collaborating with us would be an enriching experience for your child and a simple and convenient setup for you.

Join us for nanny sharing and your child will not only get quality care but also have the opportunity to make some lovely new friends!

A little bit about us…

We’re a family of 4 living in Menlo Park (between Nealon and Lyle Parks). Our son was born in June (the one we’d like to find a nanny share for) and our daughter turns 3 in November (she’s at full time day care).

We’re looking to do a full-time nanny share starting sometime between November and January and would love to find another family with a kid roughly our son’s age prior to finding a nanny (though we have some flexibility here). Our preference would be to host, but we’re open to switching off locations.
