We are a family living in the Shaw neighborhood of Northwest DC, and we are looking to hire an exceptional nanny for our 18 month old son. The ideal candidate is looking for a full-time longer-term (3+ year) position, and is willing to also care for an infant when our family grows in the future. We are flexible on a start date but would need you to begin by early October. We want someone who is fun, talkative, active - able to match our child's energy and enthusiasm.

We will need a minimum of 35 hours/week of childcare; if you would like additional hours and are willing to help us with household tasks (chopping vegetables, ironing, etc), we can extend this to as much as 45 hours/week. The role is Monday through Friday during the day, but willingness to babysit on weekend evenings is a plus. Please note that these are essential: - Has her own car and clean driving record (we have parking available) - Can cook delicious toddler-friendly meals - Past nanny experience with great references - Willing to keep her immunizations up-to-date including flu shot (at our expense) To apply, please forward a list of past positions held, dates, reasons for leaving, and the full name, address, telephone number, and email of at least one reference who we can contact immediately
