A little bit about us…

Two working parents with four kids looking for help after-school, roughly 3-7 PM. Help the kids with homework, organization, etc. Our kids all play travel sports so there would be some required driving for drop-off and pick-up, all local. Need someone that can help with simple household tasks (laundry, loading dishwasher, keeping the house tidy) kids are expected to pitch in with chores but need guidance/direction. We have a dog and a fenced in backyard. She will need to be walked in the afternoon.
Ideal candidate is active, creative and has a sense of humor. Candidate must have a clean driving record, excellent references and a strong work ethic. Hours are somewhat flexible, with a start time between 2 and 4 PM, looking for someone four hours a day M-F. Would prefer someone that has the flexibility to potentially help out on weekends or stay later depending on actual start time.

A little bit about us…

Hello! Our family is moving to Evanston in April, and we are looking into the possibility of joining (or forming) a nanny share at that time. We have two sons -- a curious 3.5 year old and a snuggly 7 month old. We are hoping to arrange care 3 days per week from approximately 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM although we would also consider 4 days per week with an adjusted schedule. Our eldest will be starting half-day preschool in the fall, so we would ideally keep the same schedule for our little one at that time and have the older one join for after- school care.

We would be able to host in our home (near Asbury and Dempster) and are also willing to drop-off within the Evanston/Skokie/Wilmette/Rogers Park area. We would be open to a nanny who is interested in bringing their own child with them in place of or as part of the share, as well, or an exclusive part-time nanny.

A few things about us:
- Both parents work from home most of the time at this point.
- We will have a dedicated space (playroom, bathroom, sleep area) for the share, so hopefully won't be too disruptive to the kids when we are working from home.
- We are fully vaccinated (and boosted) and plan to vaccinate our children once they are eligible.
- We do have one dog, but she will be "working" with us during the day and separate from the children.

A few things we would ideally be looking for:
- Nanny with CPR certification and experience with multiple children
- Nanny who is interested in being a W-2 employee
- Nanny who takes a gentle approach to care
- Up-to-date vaccination for all eligible individuals involved in share
