Please describe your family:
We are an active family of four with a love of nature and the outdoors. Living a healthy, active lifestyle is very important to us. Our idea of a perfect day is spending quality family time together exploring the outdoors.
Please describe why you are looking for a nanny:
Both mom and dad work full-time with occasional travel. However, we will never be required to travel at the same time. We each have an office in our home so it is important our nanny be comfortable with parents who work from home. With that being said, we will not interfere during your work day. This arrangement is nothing new for our family, so both our 4-year old son and 1 year old daughter are already used to mom and dad working from home, and understand we are not available during this time. The nanny we are looking for will be part of our family and provide safe, kind and loving care for our children. We are looking for an energetic person who will form a close relationship with our children. Someone who has good initiative to set up interesting and creative activities each week.
Describe the child(ren) you need a nanny for:
Our son is an energetic 4-year old boy who loves to play outside. When not outside, you can find Ethan with his second love, anything related to cars, trucks or trains. He has a vivid imagination and loves to build with Legos. He also enjoys music, reading, puzzles and all sorts of different art projects. Our son will be starting pre-school in August, he will be doing 5 half days a week. Our 1 year old daughter is a very happy baby with a huge appetite. She has been walking for 2 months and tries desperately to keep up with her big brother, her hero. She loves exploring new things, and like her big brother she loves to be outside.
Describe your home setting: We live in a 2-story home located in the Rock Creek subdivision of Superior. Each child has their own room on the 2nd floor. In addition, we have a playroom on the main level. Outside there is a play set in our backyard along with a grass area for play. We also have a deck to enjoy meals outside on a nice afternoon. Our neighborhood has several walking trails along with multiple playgrounds near by. We also have a community pool within walking distance of our home to be used during the summer months. Due to our very busy schedules we try very hard to keep an organized home, although some days are better than others.
We are interested in the following:
