A little bit about us…

Hi! This is a job for our first baby, a little girl, coming September 2024. We expect the job to start when she is 3-4 months old. My husband and I both work full time, so we anticipate M-F 8am-4pm (hours may flex sometimes). Of note, my husband works from home, so he is able to check in, offer support, or allow flexibility if unexpected situations arise. We are also looking for light housework and possible meal preparation. We do have a dog and a cat. While we anticipate we will care for the pets, it may be necessary to let the dog into our fenced backyard from time to time.

Soon-to-be 10mo old Adrian needs care for about 20/25 hours per week. He is smart, energetic, and loves to be outside, so looking for someone who is willing to spend as much time outside with him as possible (walking, hiking, playing). He gets bored easily inside, but can spend all day outside looking at trees, birds, and squirrels! We have a 10 year old dog (collie/lab/shepherd mix) who will be home, but needs no care - she sleeps most of the day. Happy to have nanny in our home or at another home. Days are flexible and negotiable.

A little bit about us…

We are two families in search of a nanny for our two infants - 12m old boy and 6m old girl. Time will be split between both houses weekly. Were looking for around 25-30 hours a week. Hours will be around 9-5 or 5:30 each day. The families live in Durham about 10 minutes from each other. Both moms work from home full time so there will always be at least one Child's parent around. We are looking for someone who has previous infant experience, has their own transportation, is up to date on vaccines, CPR and first aid certified and a non-smoker. Our ideal nanny is someone who is patient and caring, and enjoys coming up with activities for to help aid in the kids development. Some light household chores would be helpful. We would like for this person to begin ASAP. We pay $25/hour, and offer 5 sick and 5 paid vacation days.

A little bit about us…

Looking for part-time occasional support with our 1 yr old (turns 2 in July). Will be looking for a more regular nanny share starting in August when Mom starts grad school - schedule TBA.

Dad is a software engineer - works from home Monday through Friday, hours somewhat flexible. Mom is currently working mornings at a preschool (Tues-Fri) but will be starting grad school at UNC in August. Our daughter Nahla is a sweet fun child - she loves books, music, animals, running and jumping.

We currently have a 8 yr old pitbull, Ocean, in our home. Ocean is friendly and sweet but he has serious anxiety and stress, and cannot play safely in the same space as Nahla - they need to be separated by gates or barriers. We are currently working on trying to find a safer home for him with no small children or other dogs.

Our ideal candidate will have their own transportation and driver's license.
