Our Au pair had to leave unexpectedly and we find ourselves without childcare until our next au pair arrives on January 7th. Luckily we are able to use vacation time until 11/29, but starting that day we will need an energetic, compassionate nanny to engage the children in educational play, perform basic meal prep (snacks, fruit, chicken nuggets, precooked vegetables, etc.), and ultimately make the children feel loved while I work on weekdays. We do have two cats, so comfort with them is necessary. A is autistic, which for him manifests as some rigidity, sensory seeking, and certain rituals he practices to self-regulate. We would love someone who has knowledge of autism, but A is classified as "high functioning" and thus doesn't require care much different from any other child. We look forward to hearing from you!
