The Pedersen Family
Newton$25/hr  |  1 kid
Looking to join a nanny share for our preschool-aged son, Max. Parents typically work outside of the home in the Boston area, but mom is a school administrator and may be working from home some or all of the time depending on the plan for reopening schools in the fall. Max has been in daycare since he was an infant, so he is very used to receiving care from other adults and really misses his friends. He’s a happy, chatty 3 year old who loves building train tracks, dance parties, and reading the same book 20 times. Still take a good 2 hour nap in the afternoon. Looking for a seasoned caregiver who understands the importance of social distancing. Strong preference for someone with training in early childhood education and/or experience at a daycare center. Would love to work with another family with a similar age child to figure out how to supplement some of the formal learning experiences Max would have received in his preschool classroom.
