Nanny Needed in NYC

A kind, easy-going family in Nolita, NYC is seeking a warm, thoughtful nanny for their daughter, age 2. They are welcoming their second child into the world in January!  

They are flexible to meet the needs of the right candidate seeking 30 - 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday, and have flexibility on the start date. 

The ideal schedule, for now, is approximately 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm, though there is room to accommodate more hours if needed.
