Nanny Share in Sellwood--full or part-time for toddler-age
We have a wonderful nanny for our 20 month old. She is kind, caring, interactive, playful, and professional--she even went to NW Nannies Institute so has professional training and her first aid and cpr certifications. She has been working with our family since Spring 2012 and we are extremely happy with her. She has experience caring for multiples at both our home and elsewhere.
We are now looking to find a family to "nanny share" with--ideally we'll find a family with a child close in age to 20 months so the kids can become playmates and learn from one another.
The schedule: Currently our nanny works Tuesday through Friday from 8:45 AM to 4:45 PM. We are flexible on hours though and if you need care on Monday, the nanny is availale but it just wouldn't be a nanny share day (since we have Grandparents doing care that day). We are open to full time or part-time nanny share.
The location: Our preference is to have the nanny share happen at our home because that is what works best for our schedules and the fact that we are a one-car family, but we would be open to discussing other options if someone lived close to us. We are located on SE 15th a few blocks south of Tacoma--walkable to Sellwood Park, the Community Center, the library, New Seasons and it is a great place for the kids to have some activities outside of the house regularly without having to drive somewhere.
We have a separate room in the house where your child can sleep in a pack and play or in a crib which we could provide if it is regularly at our house.
When nanny share is at our house, we are happy to provide 100% vegan, healthy, mostly organic meals for both kiddos.
The rate: $8/hour per family.
About us: We have our sweet 20 month old girl, 4 rescue chickens and a 60 lb dog named Meg who mostly keeps to herself. We make efforts to be green--from eating a vegan diet to using cloth diapers and natural products. My husband is a teacher and I work in renewable energy.
