    A tight-knit and loving family of four is looking for a nanny to join them in a full-time, live-out position in Washington, DC. The ideal candidate will be proactive, kind, sensitive and engage their two girls who are one and almost four years old.

They would love to find someone with a safe vehicle they are comfortable transporting children in, and will provide mileage reimbursement. They are also open to considering providing a nanny vehicle.

Ideally, their nanny will also be comfortable preparing and introducing the girls to healthy foods and will help keep the home neat and tidy during the day.


    The family spends part of their summer up in Maine and would love to bring their nanny with them next year. They also occasionally travel and will invite the nanny to come along or ask the nanny to stay behind and provide care for the children while they are away. The parents describe themselves as progressive and value different and interesting perspectives in their home. They also love travel, music, cooking and delicious food! 


    The family is looking for someone to start in late August and will be paying $20-21/hr and will be providing a healthcare stipend and paid time off for their nanny.
