Hi! My name is McKenna and I am a social work major at Immaculata University, going into my junior year. I spend most of my summers and a lot of my days in high school were devoted to helping my best friend care for her two younger brothers (ages 2 and 8). I also have a lot of experience babysitting for family friends over the years. Last summer I spent 2 months with my 3-year-old nephew and 5-year-old niece while their parents were in Arizona welcoming quadruplets to the family! I spent the previous summer before that working for a pet sitting service and grew up with dogs (currently have a kitten and a bunny) so I am very comfortable with all animals. I enjoy spending time outside, doing crafts, and getting down to their level and interacting with kids!

We are looking for a nanny for our two kids (ages 4 and 8). We would pay a full-time salary even though both kids are in full-day school. So you would have increased responsibilities in the summer (although they go to camps in the summer) as compared to during the school year. We're looking for someone energetic, imaginative, caring, and flexible.

My husband and I are moving to Hockessin Nov 6th. Looking for a nanny to take care of my 16-month-old. I will be working from home. My son is very independent and is very easy to take care of. I do have two dogs that will need to be walked in the afternoon. Other than that they are self efficient and will be in a separate part of the house most of the time.
