Job ID: 5328
Location: Boulder, CO
Please describe your family:
We are an easy going family of 3 - mom, dad, and a 4-year old boy - and we recently uprooted the family from Chicago to Boulder. Our boy is going to a new preschool in January (8am-11:30am, M-F) and so we are looking for an after school nanny. Dad travels quite a bit for work but when not traveling, he works from home. Mom works M-F, 9-5 in Louisville and gets home from work around 5.30pm. We love nature and the outdoors and this move to Boulder was very much welcomed by everyone in this little family.
Please describe why you are looking for a nanny:
We are looking for someone who is energetic, positive, warm, works very well with preschool aged children, responsible, trustworthy, and is good at communicating.
Describe the child(ren) you need a nanny for:
A 4-yr old boy who is into playing outside, reading books, playing with his toys in his playroom, and he loves to learn about new things!
Describe your home setting: Mom and Dad are separated (since our boy was 6 months old, so this is not anything recent, and we both moved to Boulder from Chicago). We are a great team when it comes to our boy and parenting. Dad lives in a single-family house and his home is closest to the preschool. Mom lives in a condo but the condo is about 20 minutes away from school. Currently, we think it would be more convenient for the nanny and best for our son that he stays at his Dad house after school. We figured the consistent location would work well, especially as he transitions to a new school and a new nanny. But we are open to whichever is best for our child and works well for the nanny.
We are interested in the following:
