Full Time, starting ASAP

Queen Anne
2 children: 6 years, 4 years

A fun-loving Queen Anne family is looking for a full-time nanny, as our previous (beloved!) nanny of 6 years is moving on to a new career.  Our daughter (4.5 years old) goes to preschool for a half day three times a week and enjoys wearing her princess dresses and doing puzzles.  Our son (almost 7 years) is going to be a 1st grader and he loves Legos, Star Wars, and asking Alexa to play his favorite songs (Taylor Swift and Hamilton soundtrack).  Our kids are friendly, out-going and also enjoy riding their scooters to the park, reading books, and doing art projects (the messier, the better!). We are looking for an organized and upbeat nanny that can help with school pick ups, ferrying the kids to afterschool activities, engaging them in creative play, and helping with some day to day household tasks, such as the kids' laundry and their meals.  We also have a mellow dog named Winston who appreciates tagging along on the scooter rides and will insist on some snuggles from time to time.  Our needs for care often fluctuate based on my husband's travel schedule, but the hours are generally from 9am - 6pm (T/TH) and 1:30pm - 6pm (MWF), with occasional coverage starting at 7:45am a day or two a week.  We can guarantee anywhere between 30-35 hours per week and the position could be 4 days per week (Mom has Wednesdays off) if that meets the needs of the right candidate.  If a schedule closer to full time is ideal, then we would be happy for our nanny to take on more household manager type duties, such as grocery shopping/errands/dog walking.  This position will be paid on the books up to $25 an hour (depending on experience), with a week of PTO nanny's choice and a min of a week's worth a PTO of parent's choice.  We are hoping to find a nanny for a one year commitment (starting September 2017 through September 2018). This position requires a clean driving record and a reliable vehicle.
