We have two dogs and two cats. My husband's day is more flexible than mine, so he may come home early and dismiss the nanny earlier than expected. I am a teacher, so the nanny will have school breaks off since I will be home. The nanny will not need to live in our house. Our ideal caregiver: My ideal nanny would be comfortable around dogs and cats. He or she can work within a school schedule since I am a teacher. He or she must be willing to read to, play with, and reinforce skills such as manners, alphabet, and numbers with my son. Additional needs include being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son. Flexible start date.
