The Prince Family
Strawberry Hill, Cambridge$25/hr  |  1 kid
I am looking for care for my 4 year old daughter. She is attending in-person school 4 days a week and school pick-up would be needed. She enjoys playing at the park after school. We do have a dog on the days that the weather are poor and would need to stay inside. She has virtual school one day a week (Wednesdays) and would need help with class attendance and school work. I predominantly work from home during the pandemic. My husband is looking to start a new job soon, which is why we will be needing the care. He may be working from home as well, but the challenges of parenting while trying to work are too great for us. Food will be provided but may need to be prepared.
The Romeri Family
East Cambridge, Cambridge$15/hr  |  1 kid
We are expecting our baby girl in October, and are looking to start care in December or January. We would love to find another family who lives nearby and wants to have a similarly aged companion. We live nearby lots of parks and playground and have a dedicated playroom at our house with lots of age appropriate Montessori toys. We would be looking for care Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Our understanding would be that both families would pay the nanny a half fee each week. We do not have any pets. The nanny's main job would be to take care of and play with the kids - feeding, naps, diaper changes, bottle preparation, reading to the kids, developing activities, etc., I am happy to provide the nanny with the materials she needs to work with the kids and stimulate their minds!
