A little bit about us…

My family is seeking a full time nanny for when I return to work from maternity leave at the end of November. We have two children, one will be 3 months old at that time, the other 22 months old. Our 22 month old has special needs and developmental delays. We are looking for someone who will be comfortable working with both of our children throughout the day for mealtimes, tummy time, walks, etc. I work from home so I will be there to lend a hand here and there. We live in Norfolk and would need care weekly 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. Care would need to start the week after Thanksgiving, but best if we could have a few trial days beforehand to ensure that schedule and personalities are a good match. We look forward to hearing from you!

A little bit about us…

Hello! I have a 6 month old daughter. I would like to keep her out of daycare so I was hoping we could find a nanny. I am a full time student and my husband is in the navy. I don’t have a job yet, but if we can find a nanny that will change. Monday-Friday would most likely be the days needed for help. Hours could be from 9-3 although that may change. We stay at the house mostly so there isn’t any drop offs or pick ups needed. I will be around still at first until I can get a job, so most of the time I will need help watching her so I can do school work and job hunt. Once I find a job, the hours and days needed may change but I will try my best to keep it Monday-Friday or whatever works best for the nanny.
