A little bit about us…

Our family of four includes Jeff, Jenn, Miles(10) and Luke(7). Miles is bright, articulate, artistic, creative and strong willed. He has type 1 diabetes and autism. We will provide any necessary training. Luke is clever, silly, imaginative, bright and mischievous. They are both on the chatty side. We are looking for morning (before school) and afternoon help with our two kids. Hours would be roughly 7-9 and 3-5 so this is an ideal job for someone in school or with other daytime commitments.
Mornings would involve helping with lunches and breakfast, driving the kids to school as well as tidying the main living area.
Afternoons would involve school pick up, snack and activities as well as dinner prep. The kids are fun, sweet and silly. They love to build legos and listen to audio books. We are looking for someone kind, creative and fun who really enjoys kids.

A little bit about us…

I am looking for a short to long-term Nanny to provide excellent childcare to my 5-year-old sunshine, who happens to be on the autism spectrum. I will need support while attending nursing school. Must be at least 21 years old, CPR & First Aid Certified, and be willing to commit long term (at least 1-2 years). Ideal candidates must be patient, engaging, child-focused, compassionate, responsible, and familiar with non-verbal communication skills (it takes no time to learn his communication style). He loves to parallel play and low pressure with playtime. He mostly likes his space, which gives you time to prepare things for him. I would really love a nanny who has experience with autistic children and how they operate in a neurotypical world. Responsibilities include all things child related, such as taking care of his needs, keeping him safe and clean, laundering his dirty clothes weekly, cleaning the play area after activities, loading/unloading the dishwasher, planning meals for him on occasion, assisting in potty training, and organizing creative and educational activities (indoors and outdoors), as well as school pick-up and drop-offs on certain days. Pay is negotiable based on performing all the duties required. Gas is also reimbursed.

Hours will increase in May 2023 once I start clinical rotations.
