A little bit about us…

I have 2 girls ages 2 & 5. They've both been cared for in home by an Au Pair since they were born but I am going through a divorce right now so I'm in a pickle, trying to explore all alternative options. I would love to find and be part of a great nanny share to contribute to, or even a childcare exchange/ childcare swap where we swap childcare time (instead of money) with another single mom or family experiencing a similar situation.

This March, I'm looking to fill a full time- live in position approx 45-51 hrs a week. Average pay is $800/mo but includes the benefit to live in (apartment) rent free, furnished room, and includes utilities, basic groceries, internet, Xumo stream box with cable TV channels, use of car & gas primarily for picking up/shuffling kids around. We also like to include you in any family activities, and will cover the costs as much as possible (going out to eat, b-day parties, occasional outings to local events etc)
I work full-time in office, 9am-5pm. Looking for care M-F 8:30am- 5:30pm, plus twice a week, I also need care in the evening from 6:30pm-9:30pm on Tues. & Thurs.

For Childcare exchange/swap option, I am available to look after kids MWF 6pm-10pm, & weekends I'm free all day, or 2pm-10pm.

A little about me & the girls:
We are fun, loving, & active girls. We love going on walks, playing at the park, riding bikes, scooters, skates, & dancing Ballet Folklorico. I am a vegetarian and try to feed my kids mostly healthy meals but they are not vegetarian. We speak English at home, but the Au Pairs we've hosted have spoken Spanish to the kids so they know quite a bit of Spanish. A bilingual caregiver would be a plus, but not a deal breaker. I prefer to limit screentime to just a little bit in the evening.

The 5yo is in Kinder, and needs to be picked up from school each weekday. The 2yo is a feisty, funny, loving little girl who is home all day but enjoys trips to the library, park, and other toddler activities/outings. Let's connect!
