A little bit about us…

My name is Erica, I have an Autistic 4 year old son named Cordero that requires a lot of activity,care and close attention, as he likes to elope and run away at times so it is paramount that he has a nanny that is active and pays close attention to what he is doing as he is capable of opening doors to leave.Cordero is a very fun loving child. I've been unemployed for a year and I am looking for a reliable nanny to help me as I transition back into the work force and embark on entrepreneurship opportunities. I need time to myself,to regroup and rejuvenate from the sacrifices of caring for an autistic child. If you feel you are equipped for this position please do not hesitate to reach out as this could be a beneficial opportunity for both parties involved. I am a very spiritual person so I'd like a nanny who will be able to say prayers with my son at night before bedtime. The days and hours will vary and will be determined by the routines for the day so this will be determined later on.

A little bit about us…

I start nursing school in the fall and I work two overnight shifts a week. This semester, it would be every Monday and Tuesday 4-7p and every Wednesday and Thursday from 3-11p from September to December.

My daughter turns 8 years old this summer. She’s a really bright, quick on her feet, hyperactive kid. She’s a creative, so she’d rather paint and build. She was diagnosed with ADHD a couple years ago. She will play at the park or enjoy the beach, never wanting to leave, so a bulk of your time can always be spent doing either of the two.
