40 hrs/ 5 days a week

Our child is 5-years-old. She is slow to warm up. However, once she gets to know someone, she is warm, kind, and engaging. She has a great sense of humor. She loves kitties, mushrooms, and worms. She loves to read and play outdoors. She has a very rich imagination and is creative.

We're looking for a family with a similar aged child to do a nanny share (4-6 years). We welcome children of any gender identity.

A child with a similar temperament would be a good fit. However, our child has also played well with children who have very different personalities, so we are flexible. The child will need to be kind and inclusive.

Both my husband and I will be working from home. We're open to hosting or even sharing a hosting responsibilities.

We want a family who takes social distancing seriously. We would essentially be expanding our bubble to include another family.

What we're looking for in a nanny:

We're looking for a nanny who can do some preschool curriculum. We would also like to see organized outdoor adventures, crafts, and activities.
We would like a nanny who has some early childhood education training and experience.

Our philosophy....

We practice peaceful/gentle parenting. We validate and make space for our child's feelings. We'll be looking for a family and a nanny with a similar philosophy.

We're hoping that the family and nanny we pair with will also have a consensus style of rule making. We like to explain to our child why we have rules. We also try to agree on rules together as a family. We're hoping that the family we pair with can also have discussions about rules.

We have an 11 month old girl who loves to be on the move! Open to alternate homes. Our preferred hours are 8am - 5pm. We are able to drop off or pick up our kid but are open to a nanny helping with this. Our household includes two older dogs (a miniature dachshund and an english springer), who are people friendly.
The Bloom Family
Seattle$18/hr  |  1 kid
Looking for both a nanny and a family for a nanny share. We have a 2 months old, and we would like to start a nanny share ideally around February 2021 when he is about 6 months old. Our goal would be five days a week at 40 hours per week Monday - Friday. Alternating houses or being at our house is fine with us. We do have two small very sweet dogs so family and nanny need to be comfortable with pets. Our start time can be flexible if we find the right fit.

Nanny and family would need to be stringent about socially isolating in a pod because of COVID. It is the reason we are not pursuing daycare at this point, so it would be a top priority for us.
