Mom works from home, but stays mostly out of sight
No cooking/cleaning expected (other than keeping things tidy during normal daily activities)
We have a large, old dog - he mostly just lays around, but it is something to be aware of if you have allergies
Although things are always subject to change, we would ideally like to keep the current situation for the next 2 years
We are open to a nanny share situation, as long as it does not conflict with driving the kids to/from school (i.e. probably cannot accommodate more than one additional child with car seats)
We have isolated areas of the home where you could feel free to set up a Montessori environment that is appropriate for you (i.e. your materials or setup will not be disturbed when you are not around)
I am not necessarily looking for someone to provide curriculum on a daily basis, just someone that respects the children, has appropriate expectations and fosters their independence
If this seems like a good fit for you, please contact Robin:
