A little bit about us…

We are a nurse/firefighter duo with 3 girls, a cat and a large friendly large dog.

Mila is 6. She attends an outdoor farm school. She is kindhearted and loving, loves all things arts and crafts and loves ballet.

Lucia is 3. She attends preschool twice a week. She is funny and loud and a bit of a sass :)

Hannah is 7 months old. She is a sweet baby who loves her sisters and is learning to crawl all over the place.

Our schedule and childcare needs vary weekly so we need someone with a bit of flexibility. Biggest need is on some Mon/Wed from 5:45 am-9:00 am. Potential for longer days on Mon/Wed if my husband and I are able to work on the same days. Other days are negotiable and more just when we would want to have some time away from the kids.

Help with light housekeeping and meal prep/kids prep for the week would be fantastic!

Must have a car as the girls have school Mon/Wed.
