A lovely new family to the network is looking for a part-time short-term nanny to work alongside mom with their older 2-year-old child when they welcome their new baby! They are no stranger to our network as the kid's aunt is a SmartSitter, too, so someone who is bringing their best and brightest personalities and attitudes to their days together will be best.

The nanny would never have both at once while alone. Someone who is happy to take them out and engage with him when they are together. Someone cheerful and fun who can be his person.
Someone who can be equal parts helpful to mom, self direct with the boy while she manages the baby, and making everyone feel a part of the whole at the same time. Someone who can manage and navigate his play with the baby and mom. Helping him to bond with the baby.
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 7:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The family is looking for help from 5/24 to 6/19.Learn more about this job

They are looking for someone dynamic, active, and fun who can split their attention between the two and give them equal amounts attention and care while together so they both feel loved and looked after.
This family is really kind and thoughtful. They are hoping to build a bond with their new person after their long-time nanny left to start their own family! They've been through a lot the past few years, so someone sensitive to their situation and understanding will be best!
