Our nanny of 3 years is retiring. She watches our 6-month-old M-F and our 3-year-old after preschool on MWF/all day T/R. We would like to keep this schedule, but are open to and looking into alternatives, such as daily PT preschool/daycare with nanny pick up and care for 3-4 hours per day, or FT preschool/daycare on select days with FT nanny care on other days. We are open to a temporary nanny until FT daycare is available; this is our least preferred option, but mentioning in case someone is only looking for short-term employment. Duties include modest meal prep, light housekeeping (e. g., ensuring toys are put away at end of day, restocking diapers/wipes from supply closet), and picking up from preschool. Must be willing to actively engage in play (lots of pretend!) with children and be a good communicator with us (the parents).
