The actual hours for the position vary from 11am-4 p.m. some days and 11-5 p.m. some days Mon- Fri for the most part, with a Thurs and Fri off every 3rd week. It would be in our home. We have 3 children, a son and two daughters, ages 4, 2, and 6 months. We also have two cats and a 120 lb dog but he's a lab/Great Dane mix and just a big baby. I will be home a couple days of the week as since I commute so the kids would have to stay upstairs then. My son attends school so he would be dropped off after school by the school bus and the girls would be home all day. The main things I'd be looking for in a nanny would be a healthy but easy lunch and nap time schedule to be followed for my 2-year-old, a mid afternoon snack, feeding the baby who eats on demand (still on breast milk), lots of play, no TV.
