Seeking a fun, responsible, and reliable nanny/childcare arrangement for the ’19-’20 school year.
My three year old would be your constant companion. She’s a sweetheart, full of joy, and is a hoot. She has a friend that currently joins her 2-3 days a week for social interaction. Her 7 year old sister spends most of her day at a nearby elementary school, but is an add-on for short periods of time or school days off. You get paid to play and travel with my little one to parks, the library, music class, speech, etc. and to help me manage single motherhood and teaching through assisting with light household tasks. It’s a great gig!
Our current nanny, who is leaving the area to attend Washington State University, explains, “Working with Amaya this past year has been a dream! She is kind, gentle, understanding, silly, and the most snuggly 3 year old. Art projects and park days fill all her wishes. I often refer to her as my best friend–not a day goes by that she doesn’t make me laugh. The family as a whole works well. They have a busy schedule with fun activities which you get to enjoy as well!”
I am a teacher (currently a .8 Middle school reading teacher working with at-risk youth, but with 16 years of Elementary teaching experience prior to that). Our home environment reflects my profession. It’s child-friendly, safe, and mindfully created for a young child(ren). We are lucky to live in the Columbia neighborhood which is a dream for raising kids. I strongly value education, outdoor time, play, a high level of interaction between caregiver and child, community involvement, and social/emotional development. I am supportive in all ways I can be of our nanny and my children.
Employment is for 6.5-6.75 hours per day, mornings through mid-afternoons with public school breaks and Federal holidays off. If desired, that could be further reduced to about 3.5-4.5 hours on MWF with preschool enrollment in the afternoons.
A strong commitment from August 28, 2019 through June 2020 with federal holiday and Ferndale School district school breaks off is necessary. Summer babysitting work, as desired, would help to provide an easier transition. It is essential that you be able to commit to the full year and schedule. Continued employment in the following school year would be available but is not a condition of employment.
Experience caring for young children required and early childhood development schooling or interest preferred.
You should have a strong driving record and ability to pass a background/drug check.
