Looking for a full-time family ( who is able to host) to do a nanny share! My husband and I are expecting our baby boy beginning of Feb 2019. My husband is a firefighter so we will only need care 3 days/week. Every week will be different days (but guaranteed 3 days/week; approx 9 hours each day).
Starting May 2019 (our baby boy will then be 3 months old - so looking for another bundle of joy around the same age!)
Nanny has 15+ years of experience and great references! She prefers 2 infants only as the care is more personalized. She will need taxes withheld or she could pay her own taxes.
My husband and I are willing to work with the other family on start/end time, payment logistics, etc.

Thank you!

We have an excellent nanny that has been with us for many years and we would like for her to be able to make more $$ as our son now goes to preschool Monday-Friday 9:30-1:30. So we are happy to host another child/baby at our house. She has a lot of free time and is excellent with babies. We are very happy with her and our son loves her. She is very maternal and takes good care of kids. We live in Great Falls, VA right of Leesburg Pike on Colvin Run Road. Nearest metro is Wiehle Reston. She would be happy to help out part-time as well if you can commit to 20 hours or so per week on average.

Hours are:
Monday-Thursday 8:00am-6:00pm
Friday 9:00am-5:00pm

Please let me know if you are interested. Of course the families can meet and then decide next steps.
