What else are you looking for in a nanny?
Having recently lost a parent after a difficult battle with cancer, my girls need a nanny who is capable of being kind and warm-hearted while maintaining good boundaries. They need someone who is able to keep the routine and rules which help them feel safe (just because they want more screen time and junk food doesn't mean they should get it!). Beyond that, they need someone who can actively engage with them and have fun. An all-around healthy lifestyle is very important to me, which means lots of fresh, healthy food and plenty of exercise.
Love, integrity, kindness, and honesty are key values in our house. I adore my girls, I'm looking for a nanny who can bring warmth and kindness into their lives!
