Regular part time nanny needed for two really amazing kids: one age 8 with Down Syndrome (and behaviors on the Autism spectrum = repetitive sounds and motions, never ever violent). He has language and behavioral delays and is very sweet and loving (lots of hugs and kisses). Previous experience with special needs strongly preferred. He will be starting school in the fall. It is a small special school, specifically for kids with special needs. He is in school from 8:50 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and would need to be picked up at 3:00 p.m. and driven home. Daughter age 10, super smart and ultra-sporty. She's a great big sister and loves basketball and playing outside. She goes to school. She takes the bus home from school and is home around 4:00 p.m. She is smart, sporty, active and loves her brother and playing with friends in the neighborhood. Mom is remarried last summer. The family is in need of a dedicated, loving, responsible, mature and compassionate nanny with a dependable car, great references, and a high tolerance for Blues Clues and SpongeBob Square Pants. The kids have been in a big transition, and are settling into the "new normal" of a new home and new schools. Nanny needed to help with transportation and childcare during / after school and before mom gets home from work. The family has a dog, a chocolate Lab. For most weeks, care on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. picking up our son to 6:30 p.m. (when mom or husband gets home). Possible days and overnights when Mom travels as needed ( very rare). No Mondays (kids with Dad), No Fridays (Mom is home).
