Me and my husband live in a house close to downtown, Des Moines, and we're looking for a nanny to watch our baby girl (arriving January 2021!) starting in May when we both go back to work. By that time, our babe will be about 4-5 months and we're looking for a regularly scheduled nanny during the week. The exact number of days during the week is currently tentative-I'm open to the nanny's schedule if they're the right fit. The hours each day would be approximately 9am-4 p.m. I'd love to build a relationship with our nanny, having them feel welcome and comfortable in our home! Me and my husband are outgoing individuals that work in creative fields. Starting at such a young age, the nanny will have plenty of downtime to take care of a few additional home needs, if able, and any personal responsibilities (such as studying, if a student).
