Reliable & Engaging Nanny (27707)
Select Sitters is seeking a nurturing, mature, and interactive nanny for a family in Durham. The family has a baby who is 9 months old but was born premature and the adjusted age she is more like 5 months currently. They also have a 3-year-old who has lots of energy and enjoys being outdoors, arts and crafts, and reading books. They are looking for a confident caregiver who is also skilled at managing two children at the same time especially as the schedule can include long days.
Both parents have demanding jobs in the medical field so they need a reliable, responsible, and punctual nanny. They are hoping for a nanny who can treat the children like they would if they were their own, setting boundaries while being kind, engaging with them, and spending lots of time playing and teaching the 3-year-old and cuddling and reading to the baby.

The schedule will vary week to week, however, a schedule will be provided in advance. The hours will typically fall Monday-Friday 6:45 am-5:45 pm.
