We are on a list for daycare that was supposed to have us starting right after maternity leave ends (September). However, now they have pushed us back to at least 2024. We are looking for a sitter or nanny share between September and when daycare room opens. My husband and I work a hybrid model and are hoping to find a sitter who can come to our house. Ideally Monday-Friday 9-4:30ish. We also have 2 golden retrievers who are very friendly. Our son was born end of April so he is just a month or so old right now! By then he will be 5 months or so old.

I am a teacher, and I have a daughter who will be 2 in May and a second child due in August. Starting around October, we will need care from 8am to about 3pm. My husband is a graduate student at VCU who works at home most days. We live in the Three Chopt area of Richmond, and we are looking for a family to nanny share. We can have care at our house or yours. We have a cockapoo puppy who spends most days in the office with dad. Our daughter is a bright and active toddler, and we're looking to nanny share with a family who has at least one child of a similar age (0-3 years old). She is in a daycare center for now, but we're looking for more affordable options when the new baby arrives. My husband and I are both fully vaccinated and boosted, and we're looking for a family and nanny that have similar covid safety standards. Please reach out if you are interested!

A little bit about us…

Date night sitter needed twice a month or more (every time would be told in advance) consisting of a shift of 7:30-2AM or 5-12PM.

We have a 4 year old daughter, who is rambunctious and inquisitive and an 18 month old son who is a cry baby cuddle bug! Bed time is 8. Both sleep fairly well but my son will look for me eventually but is easy to put back down. We also have a dog but he will be in his crate upon your arrival. Hes 8 pounds and not so good with new people so we prefer to limit contact.

Need to be CPR/First aid certified but we are also willing to pay for training if you’re interested in signing a contract with our family. We’d need references and are open to everyone 🌈

A little bit about us…

We are expecting our first baby, a boy, in late August and would need infant care starting in December 2023. I'm a public school teacher and my husband is a researcher from Italy. We are excited about finding a nanny to hang out with our little guy during the day!

We would mostly just need someone to be there for him during the day and be in charge of naps and feeding until I can get home in the afternoon. Hours would likely be from 8:30-3:30 most days.

We have two very friendly cats and a Corgi puppy who loves attention and would enjoy being let out or taken on a short walk around lunchtime.
