A little bit about us…

Hi families!
My husband, Finn Andersen, and I are looking for another family in the Greenwood/Crown Hill/Greenlake/Ballard/Fremont area to nanny share with beginning ideally in August. Our daughter will be 6 months old at that time, and we are looking for 40 hours of coverage per week. We are willing to either split homes or host full time.
A little about us:
-Penny is our first child, and her hobbies include giggling, eating, and crying to get out of tummy time. She is great at all three.
-Finn and I both work in tech sales - Finn remotely and I a few days a week in the office.
-Our hobbies have not changed much since having Penny: we love an early dinner in Ballard, walking to nearby breweries, and spending time with our awesome families who live in the area.
Hopefully a little about your family:
-You are a safety continuous family: everyone in the house is up to date on their vaccines
-You, too, just had your first child.
-You are looking for a nanny to start somewhere between July and August, so you want to dive head-on into the search by late June.

Hi! Looking into options for a nanny share. We’re expecting a baby girl (our first!) in July and would need to find full-time or close to full-time care starting in late October, 2024.

I have a hybrid at home/in-person position at UW, and my husband works remotely full-time. I'm an academic, and he's in management consulting.

We would love to work with another family with 1-2 young children, and are happy to discuss hosting arrangements (our house versus yours). We have two very friendly dogs and live in a townhouse in N Cap Hill.

A little bit about us…

We are a mixed race couple living in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. My husband works fully remote from home, and I am in office three days a week. We are welcoming our first child, a baby girl, in March. We will be raising our child bilingual as my husband was born in Zim/from South Africa and speaks Shona. A bonus would be for our nanny to know either Shona or someone that knows some Spanish (my husband is conversational in Spanish and I can understand a bit). We plan on continuing our lifestyle of traveling with baby girl, so there could be opportunity to travel with us in the future. She has family all over the world, and one of our first trips will be to the UK to visit relatives there. We are still working through start dates and days we would need a nanny.

A little bit about us…

We have a 22-month old son that is very social with other children. He loves learning, singing, art, dancing, and exploring outside. He’s a bit of a goofball and loves to laugh.

Looking for a babysitter with experience. Someone who is kind, energetic, & caring. Someone who can work calmly and patiently with a toddler who may experience the occasional big emotional response due to first-time separation anxiety from parents.

We are also pregnant and looking to find someone who is comfortable/willing to grow with our family. (Not sure if this matters, but parents work hybrid schedule, so they will be there to assist on most occasions if needed.)

Our interests and values include kindness, love, fun, & nurturing. Our parenting style draws from “gentle parenting principles” that focus on positive and constructive interactions to help child navigate big emotions and the world while staying firm on boundaries.

There is street parking and public transportation near our home. Also, have a small backyard area that is child friendly and live close to lots of parks. We have two cats who will hide but are very gentle and tend to avoid toddler.
