A little bit about us…

Hi!
My wife and I are both full time working parents of two wonderful daughters. We have a 5 month old and a 3 year old. We moved to Kingston about 4 months ago and are really enjoying living in the Roundout neighborhood. I work from home and my wife works from home 3 days per week and commutes to Albany 2 days per week. We are looking for a full time nanny, M-F, 7:30 AM - 5 PM. We are looking for a nanny that is nurturing, experienced, dependable, active, and energetic with good communication skills that will play a key role in the development of our children.

The nanny will be responsible for looking after our 5 month old daughter full time and our three year old daughter before and after pre-school (our three year old goes to preschool from 9-3 PM, M-F). The nanny will help our toddler get ready for preschool and drop her off two mornings a week and pick her up everyday. The nanny will need to take care of the baby and toddler everyday from 3-5 PM. The nanny will help with light housework including dishes and laundry. The nanny will need to get themselves to and from work with their own transport. A family car will be used to pick up and drop off the toddler at pre-school. No smoking allowed. The nanny must be up to date on vaccines including flu and Covid. We are open to a nanny share.

I work from home and could use help watching my son at the house or taking him to a park etc, so a drivers license and car is a plus. I am open to a nanny share. My son is 19 months old, very friendly and eager to play with other children. Helping to pick up around the house would also be amazing.

A little bit about us…

We are new parents who work from home and are looking to hire someone with infant care experience to take care of our baby in our home part time while we work. We are looking for someone who can start work in mid-may when our baby will be 5 months old. We’d like nanny care Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:30 AM - 5 PM. We would consider a somewhat different schedule if needed. We have a dog and a cat in our home, so the caregiver must be comfortable with pets being in the house. Preference will be given to applicants who do not smoke, are infant CPR certified, and/or speak Spanish & English.

My husband and I are seeking consistent help on the weekends with our energetic 2 year old daughter, Ada. Could be one full day, two half days, or one half day.

Ada's favorite activities are art, music/dancing, pretend play, and physical play (swings, slides, climbing etc).

We live in uptown Kingston and walkable to Stockade & Forsyth Nature Center. We also have a backyard with a pool and swing set for the summer, so I'd imagine lots of outdoor time.

Occasional date nights (on the early side) would be nice too, but not required.

Covid vaccination required. Please let me know your interest and availability.

Hello! I am actually a nanny but am sadly leaving the very very very sweet family I work for. I am just trying to help them find a replacement for me. They have two lovely girls. One baby age 6 months and one three year old. The baby is very easygoing and loves to play all day. You would only have the toddler at the end of her school day for about two hours. She is also super easy going and is easily entertained. Please reach out if you may be interested!
