Please describe your family:
We are a family of 3. Our son will be 3 at the end of October and loves playing music, playing outside, reading, and pretengjng.
Please describe why you are looking for a nanny:
I work two days a week and we are looking for a nanny to pick our son up from preschool at 12:30 and be with him until 4pm. The afternoon will include picking him up at 12:30 in North Boulder, playing outside and having a picnic lunch, driving him back to our house in East Boulder while he falls asleep, helping us with laundry or meal prep while he naps, and playing with or reading to him when he wakes up.
Describe the child(ren) you need a nanny for:
One child: almost 3-year old boy. In 2017 we hope to add another child to our family but can discuss that as things proceed. Beginning in late 2017 or early 2018 we may want to expand to full days on Mondays and Thursdays if it works for you -- this is not necessary though.
Describe your home setting: We live in a lovely neighborhood in East Boulder near the bike path and various parks.
We are interested in the following:

What else are you looking for in a nanny?
We would love a nanny that speaks fluent Spanish (native speaker) but that is not required. We love Reggio Emilia and Waldorf philosophies so a nanny with this type of experience would be great! We would ideally like to find someone that can make an 8 month commitment through May or June 2017, but would love it to be longer.
We adore our nannies and our last nanny was with us for 2 years. The reason we are looking again is that she came with us on a family trip to Italy, fell in love with the country, and decided to move there!
