Number of children1 kid

At the end of August our nannyshare buddies of a year are heading off to daycare and we are looking for another family to join us for four days a week of childcare.

We feel very lucky that our 14th month old has had such amazing care since he was 5 months old. His caregiver has decades of childcare experience and is incredibly loving and playful - playing them music, reading, going on walks, etc. Our son is so excited to see her each morning. She is also very communicative with parents and actively shares observations about child development, along with being first aid and CPR certified. We’ve learned a ton about parenting from her.

In our ideal world we would find childcare for about 40 hours a week - 7am to 5pm on Monday through Thursday with a child of similar age to ours. We live in East Oakland just south of Mills and would ideally love to find a family not too far away, but can be flexible. Rate is 12.50/hr each family.
