A little bit about us…

My family and I have moved to the city and are in search of an amazing nanny for our 4 kids while my husband and I work full time. We are looking into day care and schooling, but do not have those in place yet so we are considering this to be a full time position for all 4 kids. In the future we may ask for assistance with pick up and drop off depending on the programs we can find. Our kids are super sweet and funny and love to put on shows, go outside and play in the snow, sing and dance, do craft projects, and we certainly don't mind giving them some tablet time in the evening! We are looking for an 8 hour day give or take with some variations, we would need weekend help every once in a while.

A little bit about us…

I have six children. Five of the children attend school. I work from 645a to 730p and I need someone to put my 5 year old on the bus in the mornings and on Tuesday and Wednesday drive her to therapy and then to school. I'm starting my 2yr old in daycare December 6th but until then we'll need the sitter to stay til dad or I get home. The older kids don't really need watching, maybe hw help here and there. We have a dog so hopefully you like pets. May be required to cook and do light housekeeping and definitely learning activities with the 2yr old. The position is for weekdays as my husband is off on weekends for now.

We need an overnight nanny for Saturday 5:30pm-4:30am. With that being said it does have the potential to become a full time thing during the days as I started a new job dinner for the most part will already be done and served you'd just be responsible for getting them to bed and having them clean up any messes they left behind before bed.
