A little bit about us…

Hi there! We're looking for a long term part-time nanny to watch our two kids Tuesdays-Thursdays from about 8am-12pm (exact hours can be a bit flexible if needed) while my husband works from home upstairs. We have an active, three year old son who loves to play crafts, get outside, and dance, while our one year old daughter loves to be snuggled any chance she gets! We're looking for someone who is active, enjoys getting outside, and is comfortable coming up with crafts, games, and learning activities to do with our kids. We'd also prefer someone who is a non-smoker and is comfortable with having a small dog (a beagle) around the house. Thank you for considering becoming part of our family!
