We’re searching for a nanny and would love referrals—good referrals!
As we anticipate the arrival of Baby LoCo, one of the considerations weighing on me is care for our newborn when I return to work. I have the awesome luxury of working from home. But I still have deadlines, spend time on the phone, have colleagues that hold me accountable, and need to be able to commit myself to my work. And since I plan to breastfeed, the most logical solution would be to have a nanny come into the house a few hours a day throughout the work week. I’ve searched Care.com to find options in this area, and have made some connections for consideration, but I am sure that not all those that “nanny” are listed. So I turn to our family and friends to ask for your referrals.
Our babe is due in April and the position would likely start in May. I’ll be returning to work on a part-time basis and increasing my hours over time until back to a full-time schedule. So initially, the position would offer a limited number of hours each week, but then increase with time, however only provide part-time employment, peaking at 20-30 hours per week once I am back full-time. Our ideal candidate:
- has held prior nanny position(s) and has experience caring for newborns,
- lives within a half hour driving distance from our home,
- has weekday, day-time availability, primarily afternoon hours
- owns a reliable vehicle,
- is a non-smoker, and
- is comfortable with pets.
CPR training and infant /child skills/education would be an added bonus.
Interested candidates can send their resume or experience details via email to email@example.com. Serious inquiries/application only.
Thank you in advance for any helpful suggestions or sharing this opening with those that would qualify.
One month to go! Here’s to a full term pregnancy and a healthy babe–cheers!
