I have 3 toddlers, 2 girls and 1 boy, ages 3/2/10 months. I also have 4 small dogs in the house. All dogs are friendly and keep out of the way pretty well. My oldest girl does have severe separation anxiety so experience with delicate emotions is a plus but not required. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker.
