Please describe your family:
We are a loving, active and busy family originally from the Midwest. Above all, we value the time with our daughter.

The parents travel regularly for their jobs and the dad works from home when not traveling.
Please describe why you are looking for a nanny:
We are looking for a Nanny House Manager for our three-year-old daughter to care for her while we are working. Our wonderful nanny of two years is leaving Colorado. Our daughter attends preschool three days a week from 8 am until 1 pm and thus we are looking for someone that can also help us around the house during these hours when she is at school. During the summers, our daughter does not attend school.
Describe the child(ren) you need a nanny for:
We have one child that means the world to us. She is three years old. She is very active, happy and creative. She does best with consistent schedules and lots of communication. She loves music, running, doing arts projects and is quite inventive.
Describe your home setting: We live in a two-story house in a great North Boulder neighborhood. We have a small backyard that is perfect for playing soccer, catch, or playing in the sandbox. We also live within walking distance to a wonderful park with a playground.
