Afternoon Nanny needed for any/all weekdays. Something like 1pm to 5pm mon/tues/wedns/thurs would be great. We have a 1.5 year old boy and 3.5 year old girl. Both are very sweet and warm up quickly.

A little bit about us…

Hello, I’m looking for a caring and attentive care giver for my five year old(one child). My child is an active, smart and caring five year old. They love doing many activities parks, hikes, video games, shows, board games, arts and crafts and learning new things. I am beginning a new career and am a single father looking for help to keep my parenting schedule with my child. I am looking for someone who can do two or three days a week (Wednesday-Friday). The hours could be from 730am-about 7pm but there may be some leeway there since 12+ hours is a very long day. My new job starts on June 12th and will have more details soon. I would need someone who is able to drive and most likely need to help with some pick ups from their other parent. There is a cat and a dog at our house but they are my roommates and you would not have any pet chores. My child will start kindergarten in the fall so obviously no current pick up or drop off for school. There are probably other things that I’m missing so questions are always welcome. My child has elected to use they/them pronouns so kindness and understanding is very much appreciated.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to speaking with this caring individual soon!
