The Abdul Family
Gaithersburg$15/hr  |  1 kid
We are a new family of 3 looking for a nanny share or a nanny to come to our house a few hours 4 days a week. We are both currently working from home, but could use some help in the middle of the day when we are busiest. We prefer a family/nanny who is taking similar precautions with Covid.
The Schumacher Family
Gaithersburg$20/hr  |  2 kids
We’re looking for someone to help our two sweet and funny sons with distance learning throughout the day from 9-3 M-F.

We are social distancing and would require nanny and other families to be doing the same. We also have a dog, so would hope others are comfortable with pets.
The Manley Family
Gaithersburg$15/hr  |  2 kids
We are new to the area and are searching for childcare for our two girls. Preferably someone who has a background in education. I would love someone who enjoys teaching and keeps to a routine/schedule. I am currently looking for approximately 6 hours per day M-F around 8-2 or so. These hours may change to full days as I am searching for a full time position for myself. We also may need an occasional weekend. I am interested in nanny share if available so my 3 year old daughter may have interaction with someone her own age.
