The most important thing is paying attention to S, who just turned 1. She's a very active and curious child. We would love her nanny to play with her, let her explore, keep her safe of course, and have lots of fun with her.
S loves music, dancing, playing on the playground, and lots of personal attention. She likes going to story time at the library, exploring all around our home or in the grass at a park, and laughing a lot.
She just wants someone to play with her and be devoted to her. I just had a new baby who I'll be home with and we want to make sure S doesn't feel like she lacks for attention.
It's important to have lots of energy! S is very active, so the job will be quite physical. She is close to walking and crawls around a bunch. So there will be lots of following her around, picking her up, helping her go down slides and going on swings. It's also important to have creativity in finding games to play with her to help her learn and develop and a positive and loving attitude. Of course we want to keep S safe but we also want someone who will let her grow and explore in a fun way - so not saying "no" to her all the time while maintaining firm boundaries with kindness.
We're in the north end there is public transportation and also a paid parking lot right at the building.
We don't have any pets.
Additional tasks we'd like help with is some light household duties such as doing the dishes, baby laundry, making food for S/cleaning up after her, and picking up her toys.
There is also room to grow and help take care of the newborn in a few months.
