What else are you looking for in a nanny?
Our favorite nanny in Maine was very easy going but completely dedicated to keeping our kids safe and entertained. She was proactive and sensitive to the needs of the family, offering to help out even when help wasn't asked for! Our household with 3 children is busy and tiring and we hope to find a nanny that can help us and make the household life a bit easier and also more fun by bringing her skills and personality to our home.
We truly appreciate the hard work of our past nannies and hope to find one that can bring her skills to our home and become part of our family. We take very good care of household help and consider a good nanny to be invaluable in giving our kids and our family the help that we need. We travel, ski, etc so would love to find someone that would enjoys vacations, etc. with us!
