Part Time Summer Nanny

Responds within a few hours
Need a very occasional summer sitter? I'm a proud kindergarten teacher who's just not built to stay still for long! I have a ton of experience with 5 to 6-year-olds, but I'm comfortable with younger and older kids as well and with more than one child at a time. In my 15+ years as a caregiver, I've learned what it means to earn smiles and trust - a mix of dependability, genuineness, and a touch of silly! I have and will continue to take COVID-19 seriously - mask wearing, hand washing, rejoicing being fully vaccinated! To be clear, I am NOT looking for a full time or even part time every day all summer position. Think more "Our nanny is on vacation for a few days", "Our work schedules overlap one day this week", "I want a regularly scheduled time each week to run a few errands child free", and "The daycare spot doesn't open for another week" I'm very flexible on how the time could look so please just ask! Thanks for reading and I look forward to finding the best fit for everyone!

Jaslin is an absolutely great sitter/nanny. She has been looking after our daughter on and off since she was 3 months old and has been amazing! She is a very kind, warm and calm presence, very experienced, super-competent and reliable. She asks what you want and then just takes excellent care of the child. It is great to have someone so capable care for your child as you never have to worry. We will continue to hire Jaslin and cannot recommend her enough.

Wild Fungi (Fun Guy)

Responds within a day
I am an avid naturalist who has been working with children for over a decade. I routinely work with children on their naturalist and bushcrafting skills. I am particularly passionate about teaching about plant identification, mushroom identification, and foraging. I can also teach your child about fire tending, free-form basket making, and shelter building. I have worked with the education department at the Piedmont Wildlife Center; starting as an intern, I worked my way up to a program coordinator. My passion is forming personal connections as a mentor. I am a huge believer in the power of play! I love awareness games and exercises in particular. I enjoy using the Socratic method when speaking and listening to children (and adults), for those who aren't interested in games. My experience as a long distance hiker has made me comfortable working outside in all sorts of weather; I am available rain or shine. I take safety seriously, and follow COVID-19 protocols without issue.

If you are looking for a gentle and wise soul, look no further than Joe. He has provided child care for my family for many years as a counselor; he communicates well with myself, my co-parent, and our children. My kids were 6 and 8 when we first met Joseph, and now they are preteens who look up to him. My kids (or myself, for that matter) did not know how to make a wild herb pesto or how to identify oyster mushrooms until Joseph stepped into our lives.
