The Sutter Family
Salem$12/hr  |  1 kid
We have a wonderful little 4 month old baby girl name Piper. I will be returning to work in a few weeks and our originally childcare plan fell through. We are looking for in house care for Piper 2-3 days a week. Monday and Wednesday are the only for sure days, the other would be flexed depending on my work schedule, which I have 6-8 weeks in advance. I work retail, so my hours vary, while my husband is consistently 8-5. Monday will be the only full day, of 8-5, while the other days worked will most likely be 5-7 hours. My husband is currently working from home, so he will be upstairs in the office. We do have a dog, but he does not require any care - maybe just the occasional head scratch if you’re interested! But he will probably hang out in the office with my husband!

I work from home and will need a Nanny 3-5 hours a day 3-5 days a week to watch the children. Work hours would be from ~9-10-~2-3. My daughter Niya is Potty training currently, and my son Nash is doing online learning for an hour or two per day, sometimes with Niya. There are a couple playgrounds close by they like to play at, and a yard at the house they love to play in. I only have them 2 weeks out of the month every month.
