The McFaden Family
& Kayleigh Bukowski
Stoneway Village, Houston$15/hr  |  1 kid
My husband and I both work full time. My husband, Frank, works from home most of the week and stays in his downstairs office. Myself, Payton, I work away from home. Our son, Sid is 1 1/2 and a pretty cool kid that loves to be around anyone and everyone. Our nanny, Kayleigh, is available Monday-Friday 40 hours a week. Kayleigh has many years of experience in teaching, education, and child care. She is very creative and does a fantastic job teaching, training, disciplining, and getting out of the home for activities! We are a very relaxed family and only stay busy with work or being with our son. We are looking for a family to join in on the fun and wanting a special place for their kid to grow. Feel free to ask any questions!

We have a 11 mo. girl and have been sharing our wonderful nanny with another family that has a 12 mo. old boy. They have a second baby on the way and are switching to their own nanny when the new one comes this March!

Details:
-Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Hours somewhat flexible.
-Our nanny speaks english and spanish
-We host the share as we both work from home full-time so we're always here to check-in and say hi to them during the day.
-We live in Oak Forest (north of the heights)
-1 nanny, 2 babies so it's a wonderful a 1:2 ratio

LMK me if you know someone that may be interested in joining us- we'd love to talk more!

The Cruz Family
& Dont Have One Gg

The Tran Family
& Hai Tran
Houston$25/hr  |  1 kid
Our daughter Piper will need care about 4 days a week. My fiancée and I both work in the city but have some flexibility where we might work from home a few days a week, although still would need someone to be with the baby even if we are home. We also have a small 20 lb dog. Piper will be 5 months when the care would begin (early December is the timeframe). Hours would be usually 830-530 Monday and Friday and on Tuesday and Thursday probably closer to 930-330? This might change slightly prior to the nanny starting but approximately these hours. We may be open to nanny share - just would need more info on it. Only important specifications are that we have a dog. Otherwise the nanny would be at our house with Piper, no need to go anywhere.
