Our daughter is turning 5 this week, and our son will be 8 in June. Until school lets out, you'll be spending the majority of the time with our daughter. We hope you'll have a pristine driving record so you can frequent libraries and playgrounds in our minivan. She also loves crafts and books and bubbles. She's super easygoing and honestly lovely to spend time with. She is like sunshine personified.
Near the end of your day, you'll pick up our son from the bus stop and maybe offer him an after school snack or play some games. Maybe you'll go Pokémon hunting together, or play outside with scooters/bikes. He is a sensitive, brilliant kiddo--literally. He taught himself to read when he was 4, taught himself all the states and countries when he was 5, and taught himself all the periodic table elements when he was 6. =) His current obsession is Pokemon.
I get home from work around 4:15. After mid-June, I may be able to get out a little earlier. My work days are Mon-Thursday, so you get Fridays off!
We expect our caregiver to engage with the kids and stay off screens-unless texting us pics/videos of happy kids. =) We also ask our nanny to help the kids tidy up before the end of the day, and to help fold laundry when you have a little downtime when the kids are playing together or independently. Coming home to a fairly tidy house makes a world of difference. We value your ability to create warm, respectful, nurturing relationships with our kiddos.
Our current nanny has been with us about three years and needs to move on for reasons out of our control. We had planned on her staying with us until our youngest starts school this fall, so we find ourselves looking for care for about 3. 5 months. We may be able to be a little flexible with start and end dates if needed, or if you already have a vacation planned. Prefer CPR/first aid certified. Must be a non smoker and have own transportation and a clean driving record. We live on a school campus, so there's lots of safe area for scooter/walking/biking.
In your application, please tell us a little about what you like to do with kids and how the hours/dates will work with other things you have going on in your life, along with your hourly rate and your preference for how you are paid. We are located in Weston. Please consider the morning traffic/commute, as we've had a few people who struggled to get here by 8 a.m. when we need to leave for work.
